At this point, some of you might be wondering how an illustrated 2D-character is even able to perform concerts all over the world? Don’t worry, no one will call you crazy for thinking that, because, Hatsune Miku is indeed a character (or persona) that exist only in the 2D-world. But with the blessing of modern technology, it is now viable to create large holograms to project Hatsune Miku with pre-programmed choreography. Have a look at how that translates below in the promotion video!
To get a bit more knowledge about Hatsune Miku, have a read below and see how the team behind Hatsune Miku introduces her.
Hatsune Miku is a Japanese music sensation, a 16 year-old blue-haired girl with a unique voice and prodigious energy.
What makes her special is that she is not a human singer, but a virtual persona who uses a computer-generated voice and 3D graphics to perform on stage. With a repertoire entirely provided by individual creators, she is the first truly crowd-created virtual talent. But being virtual doesn’t stop her from filling up concert halls, or teaming up with major artists like Lady Gaga and Pharrell Williams!
Internationally popular, with over 2.5 million followers on Facebook, the increasing demand for concerts overseas paved the way to Miku Expo, a world tour that has so far taken her from Indonesia to Los Angeles, New York and Shanghai, with a memorable TV stop at the David Letterman show.
