Today’s a very special day: I’m extremely excited to announce the very first Kikyuune Family album!

STRATOSPHERE is a compilation album created under Empathy Studios (EmpathP’s VocUTAU label) in collaboration several talented producers from the UTAU community!

The second track, “Face2Face,” is actually my first completed original; it’s a duet between Namida and Aiko about internet or long-distance friendships. To be honest I’m a little embarrassed cause the lyrics are cheesier and cornier than cheddar grits, but I do hope you enjoy!

A few more notes: PlusMinus’ track features Aiko’s beta CVVC Japanese using presamp, and Breaking Point is sung by Aiko’s CVVC English!

Full credits and free download can be found on Bandcamp! Thanks again to everyone who participated!

Below is the crossfade video with previews of each song. I’ve included Face2Face’s lyrics on the Lyrics page, and a special high-rez wallpaper of the album art, drawn by Misha and edited by myself, can be found here.

I hope everyone’s having a wonderful holiday today!

I am pleased to present a collaboration project I did with Tama and Cz, an acapella cover of the Pentatonix mashup “Winter Wonderland / Don’t Worry Be Happy”

I approached Tama not too long ago about possibly doing an acapella cover of a Pentatonix song. They’ve done acapella arrangements before and I love how they use beatboxing UTAU.

I created the MIDI and tuned Aiko and Lacan’s vocals, Tama tuned Tamaki’s and Sen’s then mixed and drew the illustration, and finally I edited the video. We also included Cz in the project, who tuned vocals for Onen’s and Czloid’s new VCCV English.

The original video by Pentatonix (feat. Tori Kelly) can be found here.

It was really fun collaborating! (And I’m also happy that I got to practice Japanese, though I do not think I did too well in translating my messages…(;´Д`))

We hope you enjoy! The YouTube upload is on my channel, and the Nico one is Tama’s!

I am SO EXCITED to finally be able to share this with everyone!

Since May, I’ve been working with a team of UTAU producers from all over the world to produce an album for the Minna no UTAU doujin event in Japan. Aiko was used in the first song on the album, an original song by Kenji-B/nostraightanswer, and I arranged AsterSelene’s “Crystal Heart” for the covers CD (you can hear it at 6:30 on the video)

And so, I am proud to present our crossfade:
