Aiko Performing Life-Size – 39diyMMDConcert / VLP

Thanks so much to Shinji, a.k.a. the guy behind VLPProject01 and 39diyMMDConcert, for accepting my video request! He shot a video of a life-size projection of Aiko performing her cover of Aiko Aiko ☆ Fire Endless Night!
For those of you who don’t know, Shinji’s goal is to promote technology (cheap and easily-accessed stuff, at that) that could be applied to future Vocaloid concerts (even other homegrown projects like this)! Check out the channels I linked above, they’re awesome 😀
One step closer to a live UTAU concert MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Breeze MMD + AWA Photos

Yaaay this project is finally finished!
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:

Aiko dances on a table!

Baggagelizard on Youtube put together a makeshift projection system (his laptop and a piece of glass) to make Aiko dance!
It’s not quite the same tech that the Vocaloid concerts have used, but it’s similar and works at any scale… making semi-low-budget UTAU live concerts a possibility in the future, perhaps? ;D

EDIT: I tried my hand at the technique. Mine’s a lot grainier due to a low-quality camera, but here’s Aiko and Namida dancing on my own desk xD
