Oh music, where are you ?–Hatsune Miku



With the modernisation of musical methods, esp. synthesis, there is boundless paths for music to take.

Taking a look at the popular Hatsune Miku in Japan, a fully CG performer with vocal synthesis by Yamaha, and live-concert musicians, it doesn’t surprise me that things are heading in this direction. Just think, an artist that wont have tantrums, doesn’t want to get paid and can never be stalked Smile  And costume changes in split seconds.. OMG Smile LOL

Well, not personally my thing, but it obviously works, and is popular in Japan ( and no doubt globally soon ), and I have to admit, great legs Smile


What do you think? where is music heading in the next 10 or even 5 years ?

Join up to my site, it doesn’t cost anything and it’s spam-free, and let’s have a discussion Smile


What is the Hatsuni Miku movement?


Utada HIkaru–Wild Life DVD/Blu Ray


Hello there happy humans… Today my copy of the Utada Hikaru – Wild Life Concert on Blu Ray arrived. So impressed.



I watched the original broadcast live via Ustream and noted it in a previous blog found here:

This is the official DVD release of the concert, with extra footage and what not.

Both the DVD and Blu Ray have the same content, and it came with a bonus poster… ok I’m not really into posters, but none the less.

The Live concert was quite amazing to watch… and the DVD is no different, the quality of the BR disk was a little weird though, though it was HD in most parts, it was still a little grainy.

None the less, all good… glad to have it, and add it to my ever expanding collection of Utada HIkaru stuff.

Note that she has re-signed to EMI under Hikaru Utada… and hopefully in a few years when she starts again, we will all get to hear new material.

It’s always interesting as a musician myself to follow artists that actually have an input into their work, like this artist, who composes her own works. A respect for the real musicians of the world. Seeing as this was (from what I gather) mostly visualised by UH, it’s good to see other creative aspects coming through, other than the accepted musical ones…

As long as you love your craft, your craft will always love you. Smile

Notable here is Matt Rohde on keys and arrangements, which is nice to see again, as he worked on a previous concert with UH, both of which I believe have a much more raw and real approach/feel to the arrangements

Anyways, I be ranting … enjoying the concert again.




Cheers Smile
