Hatsune Miku to perform on Lady Gaga’s world tour

hatsune miku

Virtual Japanese singer Hatsune Miku created by Crypton Future Media will perform during American singer/songwriter Lady Gaga’s upcoming world concert tour.

The title of the tour is “Lady Gaga’s ArtRave: The Artpop Ball.”

The tour will make more than 60 stops in 23 countries, with Hatsune Miku as the opening act for 16 shows in the U.S.

Up until now, there have been many 3D CG concerts of Hatsune Miku, but this is the first time she is participating on another artist’s concert tour.

What is a digital pop star? They’re completely artificial. Miku is a personification of a highly sophisticated voice synthesizer program. She’s a bubbly, Manga-styled 16-year-old with long blue hair who is projected as a hologram in live shows.

Her name is a portmanteau of the Japanese words for “first,” “sound,” and “future,” appropriate words to describe the first pop star made entirely out of ones and zeros.

She was created by Crypton Future Media using Yamaha’s breakthrough Vocaloid series of voice-synthesizer engines.

Crypton recorded the Japanese voice actress Saki Fujita singing various tones and pitches and strung them together into a program that allows a user to program Miku to sing whatever he or she chooses.

Her creators figured she would sell better if modeled into a character with some personality.

She was originally marketed to professional producers looking to add vocals to their tracks, but later Crypton figured she’d sell well on the consumer market, and they were right.

You can actually buy Miku’s voice bank from Crypton and use Miku in your own music.
