Default Virtual Singers: Vocaloid and Miku

(Vocaloid Live Concert)-->
YouTube - Vocaloid Live Concert [Part 2]

(turn english subs on for this one)-->
YouTube - Vocaloid Hatsune Miku, the worlds virtual diva
Using Yamaha's Vocaloid voice synth software, people have been creating 100% synthesized music with singing. Most the available content caters to the Japanese penchant for the excruciatingly high pitched wailing of a pubescent female [and of course they're all animated in miniskirts short enough to see their tanga panties, wtf Japan?]. Google Po pi po ~ Miku Hatsune if you want to make your ears bleed.

But the potential is there for some really interesting stuff. It won’t be long before people with laptops and a couple thousand in software can make anything that million dollar studios can.

There are communities are forming where people use other peoples work, kind of like open source software communities. I hope the trend spreads to the West, cause I can't stand the aforementioned Japanese high pitched wailing.

edit: in case you're intersted, the charater is projected on stage using 3D CGI rendering on a transparent screen
