Virtual Idol Hatsune Miku returns to perform at Pacific Media Expo 2013
LOS ANGELES, CA — Pacific Media Expo will be holding an unofficial concert featuring the virtual divas Hatsune Miku, Gumi, and Yuzuki Yukari. Brought by Sythesized Reality Productions, the Hatsune Miku concert will be free for all badge holders but since concert space is limited, attendees are urged to purchase their PMX2013 badges soon. The concert will be from 4:30pm – 5:30pm on Saturday, November 9th, and a Vocaloid Panel will be held on Saturday, November 9th, at 2 PM.
As an animated persona from the singing synthesis program Vocaloid, Hatsune Miku became known throughout Japan after her “live” debut in August of 2009. With over 50,000 songs created each year by her users, she has since gained worldwide recognition, become an international pop sensation, and is one of the most popular characters in Japanese anime pop culture today.
VOCALOID is a vocal synthesizing program that is produced by Yamaha, now in its 3rd installment. VOCALOID allows musicians to produce singing vocals, as a stand-in for or alternative to human singers. A VOCALOID concert is a 3D “hologram” show based on the character mascots of each VOCALOID voice, used to promote the VOCALOID voice banks. Each VOCALOID has a unique character design, as well as a different voice type for varied ranges and styles of music.
Synthesized Reality Productions (SRP) was created by former members of “Vocalekt Visions”, a live holographic show team, to make sure that fans all over the world the have the chance to experience a “live” Vocaloid performance. SRP has one goal: to bring the best possible Vocaloid concert to PMX 2013!
