Vocalekt Visions is presenting a special VOCALOID holographic live event, featuring virtual pop star Hatsune Miku, at Animation On Display 2013.
Vocalekt Visions is a unique production company, which composes music using the VOCALOID software and presents it as a "concert" using a unique HD projection system and special screen to give a smooth, lifelike holographic appearance to VOCALOID singers, as they would normally appear on stage. Also complementing the Vocalekt Visions concert with a live on-stage performance will be distinguished VOCALOID dancers from the Bay Area, World VOCALOID Dance 01.
Hatsune Miku is a virtual pop idol that has taken Japan by storm and was born as the premiere product based on the VOCALOID 2 technology developed by YAMAHA. The technology, originally designed for professional musicians, enables users to synthesize singing by inputting lyrics and a melody.
Tickets for the concert cost $10, and are only available to those who are registered as AOD attendees.
Tickets are available at the Registration Desk at the convention.
Vocalekt Visions was founded by music producers Tempo-P and NeutrinoP in 2011. The pair serves as VOCALOID evangelists, appearing at many anime and J-Pop events to showcase the Hatsune Miku VOCALOID software first developed in Japan by Crypton Future Media, present public lectures, and host holographic live concerts of their music.
Tempo-P is appearing in-person at AOD for the Vocalekt Visions concert.
Previous Vocalekt Visions' music and holographic concerts have sold out in San Francisco, San Jose, Los Angeles, and Romania. As officially licensed supporters of Mikubook and Crypton Future Media and endorsed by Internet.co Ltd, and AHS Co., Ltd, Vocalekt Visions have continued to gain the attention of many VOCALOID companies based in Japan.
At the concert, fans are able to purchase limited edition autographed copies of Vocalekt Visions' Albums and DVDs of previous shows.
