I’m super proud to present a project that my fellow Myriad circle members, along with guests CrusherP and Haru.jpg, have been working on for the better part of February+March!
Decagon is a 5-track mini album featuring the “UTAU Sisters” Defoko, Momone Momo and Kasane Teto! I produced track #3 with Defoko: “Retrospectre”
The album will be initially sold at Minna no UTAU, an UTAU-centric doujin event in Japan, on April 8th. Preorders are currently open on Bandcamp for a second-run physical release based in the US (but shipping internationally!) for people who would like the album but who… well… can’t travel to Japan on short notice, lol
A digital version will be available after the 8th as well, and all physical preorders will have access to it on release day! Any profits from Bandcamp sales will be donated to Musicians Without Borders, a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading music education in wartorn areas of the world.
I collaborated with Kenji again after he surprised me with a work-in-progress “Breeze” MMD video over the summer. At first, he was planning to use the original music, but after I found the karaoke and a basic UST, I made Aiko sing it. Since the other 2 dancers he used were Teto and Rin Append, I also decided to throw them in to make it a little more interesting. Rin Power can be heard in some glitch/stutter in places, VCV Teto does harmonies, and Rin Sweet + Whisper Teto sing the bridge together.
Many thanks to Kenji for his awesome camera + MME work, to Luna and Sango312 for rendering Rin Append for me, and to KodaP for his mixing tutorial!
Also, though this post is a bit late as I only recently got the photos, but I got to meet up with several UTAU voicers at Anime Weekend Atlanta! Cheesekun, Sparky, Asteriski, Ritz (my friend and Chiyoko’s voicer) and I met up at the Vocaloid photoshoot on Saturday. Sparky was even cosplaying as SHOICHIRO~
As a special meet-up gift, Sparky made plushies of Aiko, Azure, HARMON-E and Chiyoko! ;u; Here’s a close-up of Aiko and Chiyoko:
