Hatsune Miku Is A Computer-Generated Singer

The 20th Anime Expo just took place in Los Angeles a few days ago, and a strange creature performed a concert at the Nokia Theater last Saturday. How would you react if the performer were completely virtual, just an avatar generated by a combination of holography, a computer-generated animation, vocals included? This is the case of Hatsune Miku, created by Crypton Future Media in 2007, who gave her first concert in the US surrounded by real musicians and a real audience.

Her look is the stereotyped anime look, big eyes, long hair, slim body, a completely impossible female figure that she will keep forever contrarily to the Britney Spears of the real world. Everything is fake, the vocals are made by Vocaloid synthetic voice software, her dance moves are generated by computer, and from what I have heard, the music could not be more saccharine-d. I can’t understand how anyone can find an interest at attending such an event, past the surprise of seeing a cartoon character in 3D moving on stage, what can keep you interested if you aren’t a 7 year-old girl still into the Hello Kitty look? 

But what do I know? She sold out the place, and she has played many sold out concerts in Japan. Sure, there cannot be any wardrobe malfunction or meltdown in the middle of the show,… may be just a computer system error?
