I was hoping for some news about Miku in London, but this is still awesome he's doing this discussion. Hopefully one day a Miku concert can be done in the UK.

Yeah it's a talking shop about "leadership and innovation" but fat lot of good that all is when with concerts, to DVD releases, he has to work with several other companies to get anything done, and not aways for the good of his creations. I would have asked him that if I could have been there, but I'm already fully booked that day.

I thought there'd already been a Miku concert in the UK?

IIRC it was more like a movie screening than a concert.

She's not real... other than the "hologram" thing, what more do you expect?

Yeah it was a movie screening near Piccadilly Circus, if it's the same event I'm thinking of.

A Miku fan interviewed after the concert: http://images.plurk.com/​53aJ1E2N2Rzm9xJfWN0v​t3.​jpg

Translation of the subtitle:
"I can speak up and loudly...... she is NOT virtual...... she is very real...... in our hearts."

To my ears she's as real as any singer. Miku's voice sample was from a real live person, Fujita Saki and when the two sang a duet you couldn't tell one from the other, besides that's not the point. The point is that fans have not only discovered Miku and vocaloid, but discovered artists that probably would have never had the chance to be discovered at all because they had no singer to sing their compositions, and could not afford to contract one. Because of Miku and her "comrads" it has returned music back into my life again in a way that never had since back in the vinyl days before CDs. That's the glory of Miku and Vocaloids.

On the topic of a UK concert yes there was a two day showing of a previous Tokyo concert in the London Odeon near Piccadilly Circus. I believe both days were sold out there too, so to say that " don't know the popularity of Miku in the UK", he should just look on his own Miku facebook account once in a while to see the frequent pleadings of UK fans for a concert here.

I can't stand to listen to Vocaloid. The current fad in pop music of "Cher effect"ing everything to death is bad enough; I have an allergy to high levels of vocal processing, possible due to exposure to this wretched voice changer megaphone we had while my mother was still childminding, that they always found no matter how well I hid.
