The Future of Pop is Holographic
By Music / IO, 11 Nov 2010
Trust the Japanese to come up with something like this. Hatsune Miku is the latest singing sensation, but she isn’t flesh and blood—she’s a digital holograph created by Crypton Future Media, a Japanese media company.
The company actually produced a tour of the ‘singer’, during which the holographic Miku performed with a live backing band in front of real fans, reports Dvice.
More than digital technophilia, Hatsune Miku allows for user-generated content. By keying in lyrics and melodies, users can power Hatsune Miku up; and using a 3D application tool, the animated teenage singer can be projected.
But when it all boils down, this really isn’t that spectacular. UK ‘band’ Gorillaz, led by ex-Blur vocalist Damon Albarn, has a similar concept; and who’s to say the Lady Gagas and Ke$has of today aren’t equally ‘artificial’?
