Atlantis Falls with Cyber Diva and Hastuni Miku

Here’s a brand new song of mine that I made in Ableton Live Intro and Vocoloid with Cyber Diva and Hasuni Miku. The drums and bass were heavily influenced by the song “Key” by Yellow Magic Orchestra. The lyrics were inspired by the comic book, The Atlantis Chronicles by Peter David and Esteban Maroto published by DC Comics 1990.

The basic concept was simple, make a YMO inspired track with Vocaloid singing. The Atlantis concept came afterwards. I’m always obsessed with the legend of Atlantis anyway, and I recently read The Atlantis Chronicles (highly recommended). So when I was trying to think of things to write lyrics about, that’s what I came up with.

For the video I used about 15 or 20 stills I took at various oceans, aquariums, beaches, and watery places I’ve been to over the years, and a couple of my drawings, then used footage from the PC game Atlantis: The Lost Tales – 1997, played by youtuber PeteRoy. I first took all the stills and animated the TV simulator plugin in Sony Movie Studo Platinum, then chroma-keyed the footage from Atlantis:The Lost Tales, over it in what I thought was interesting ways.

The music was composed and mixed entirely in Ableton using Ableton’s synths, samples, and plugins, then I mixed the vocals right in the Vocaloid editor. I mastered it in Audacity.

I hope you enjoy it, if you want to download the track, you can here https://demonicsweaters.bandcamp.com/track/atlantis-falls
Lyrics:

A dome above the sky
A million reasons why
We’ll take another way to the ocean

And if you want me to
Go to the cave with you
I’ve got a magic spell for the ocean

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Our science is so strong
Become amphibian
We can breath underwater like the fishes

The best scientists
And the strongest wariors
Atlantis is the home of technology

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

A dome above the sky
A million reasons why
We’ll take another way to the ocean

And if you want me to
Go to the cave with you
I’ve got a magic spell for the ocean

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Atlantis falls into the depths of the sea now

Hatusne Miku | 1000 Cherry Blossoms played brilliantly on a Guzheng! (Chinese zither)

Check out this amazing performance of 1000 Cherry Blossoms on Guzheng that popped up on my Youtube feed. Sorry I can’t provide much more info on it since I can’t read the Chinese words on the page. Still very very impressive playing and great to watch!

“Pocket Miku” a tiny handheld Hatsune Miku Synthesizer for under $70! [Vocaloid]

Here’s something that is yet to hit the mainstream and you can get them for under $70 on Amazon! This is a tiny pocket-sized hardware synthesizer which uses the official Yamaha Vocaloid sound processing technology along with the Hatsune Miku voicebank to allow you to play in real time as a ribbon-controlled synthesizer! Um….. how fraking cool is this? For those of you that are not wanting to shell out the nearly $200 on Vocaloid and the Miku soundbank, you now have a much cheaper alternative.

This is also really great for live performances and experimental musicians. Play it in real-time through fx pedals, great complementary item to the line of Korg micro-synths on the market today!
