I can’t believe I never posted this here, but back in February I wrote a song with KAITO for the third and final ABCD Project! I tried to write something a little Grimm fairytale themed, and the song also features Aoki Lapis as chorus vocals. It was a lot of fun to make and I’m glad people seem to have enjoyed it!
Also, I’m happy to announce I’ll be hosting my UTAU: Free Virtual Vocalists panel at this upcoming Momocon in May! More details to come soon once the final schedules are hammered out–it’s already changed location/time once so I want to make sure everything is absolutely set in stone first!
If all goes well, I should have a special item to bring with me to the panel that I might do a raffle for ;D
It’s been a while! I have several things to catch up on, so I’ll get the quick stuff out of the way first.
I updated all voicebank download links on Aiko’s wiki, and I’m in the process of switching her Facebook page over to a general Studio VOXYZ fanpage! While the URL change was easy enough though, Facebook is being stubborn in allowing me to change the page name. So there’s a chance it might stay in Aiko’s name. However, I’m going to start using it to post a lot more stuff Studio VOXYZ related!
And now for the videos I’d neglected to post! Aiko’s birthday was on the 10th of this month, and as a send-off to her English CVVC (as I’ll be focusing on recording VCCV), I posted a remake of an older cover: “Fireflies” by Owl City!
(Yes. Mostly for the memes.)
If you’re curious, you can hear the old cover here.
Also, I’m proud to announce my third original song! I produced “Siren’s Lament” for the MIRIAM 13th Anniversary collaboration “The Lady and the Silver Circle”, a 7-song compilation album which you can download for free here!
I tried to go for a sea-shanty feel in my song, which tells the story of a mermaid/siren (MIRIAM) who falls in love with a human (LOLA). And though he doesn’t sing, I intended for LEON to be the sailor mentioned in the lyrics! Perhaps someday I’ll make a full PV with all 3 of them…
