I first came in touch with Vocaloid about three years ago, when listening to the song "World Is Mine" by the great Ryo/supercell. Later listening to more and more songs, until I discovered 40mP. His style really inspired me to create my first Vocaloid song, called "Answer to My Feelings". After that, I started analyzing more and more Vocaloid songs to find out what made them so special. The results of my research will be spread out across my new upcoming album "500001", which will be released in December 2016.
I'm a 16 year old student from the Netherlands. I first started making music when I was 5 years old, playing the piano and taking lessons. I never really bothered in the beginning, but in high school I discovered pop music and later Vocaloid. In the first place, the thing that kept me playing were awesome piano covers of anime songs by, to name a few, Animenz and Theister. I'm still studying on their pieces today, but have shifted my focus more to Vocaloid music and creating my own songs.
After the piano came the guitar. My dad had one and soon I was playing it day after day, teaching myself chords and rhythms. Most of the guitar work in my songs is done by myself, while I'm planning on recuiting a well-teached guitarist for the parts I can't figure how to play myself. Next came the bass guitar, which I still play till this day. I own a pretty beautiful Fender Squier P-Bass, fretless and with a deep purple color. What made this bass so special for me is that it's actually my first bass guitar to own and it's fretless. I don't use this one on records though, because I don't like its sound in the overall mix. I do, however, play it on stage.
Overall, I'm more of a DAW guy, I don't really use "offline" instruments for recording, due to not having too much space in my "studio".
As some of you might have seen, my YouTube page says that my goal is to "make Miku sing her most beautiful song ever". In the meantime, my personal goal has become to achieve international success and bring Miku to big stages in Europe. It's my dream to play the piano on stage, next to Miku or any other Vocaloid, in front of thousands of people. I hope you guys will make it possible to achieve this dream.
