Hey everyone, I’m sure many of you have heard of the recent natural disasters that have ravaged Japan as of late, including the 6.7 earthquake that struck the northern island of Hokkaido last Thursday.
A group of dedicated VOCALOID fan artists, including myself, will be doing a relief charity art stream tomorrow from 1PM – 4PM CST. The stream will be hosted by VikingJesus on Twitch and all proceeds will benefit the Japanese Red Cross.
More info, including full artist list, can be found on mikumiku_ebooks’ tweet! Even if you can’t view the stream or donate, please help us by spreading the word!
VikingJesus will actually be streaming all day for charity, so it’d be good to tune in even if you can’t make it for the art block specifically.
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
Hey all! This is the first VOCALOID cover I’ve posted to YouTube in a long, long while! It’s Big Al singing CrusherP’s “Rinse, Repeat”. I’m so happy to finally post another thing with my favorite singing synth husband 💖
In other news, I’m happy to announce that I’ll have my UTAU panel at this year’s ETSU-con! The convention is February 17-18 on the East Tennessee State University campus. I’ll be posting the specific time and day of my panel once I have that information!
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…
