New Korean Vocaloid SeeU Gets her First Demo Song
Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer developed by the Pompeu Fabra University and Yamaha Corporation, and that allows the recording of full fledged songs by inputting lyrics and melody in the program. This created a complex subculture, especially in Japan, that sparked the popularity of virtual idols crossing the boundaries between music, Anime and video games. You probably have heard at least once or twice about the Hatsune Miku: Project Diva series, that is going to get new games on 3DS and the PSP soon. Hatsune Miku is a Vocaloid.
While the Vocaloid culture is predominantly based in Japan, Korea is as usual proving quite receptive to the influence of all things geekish from the other side of the Sea of Japan, and is starting to create it’s own Vocaloid idols.
One of those is SeeU, that just “published” her first Demo Song: “RUN“.
You can see the music video and listen to the song past the cut, but be warned, as basically all Vocaloid songs it’s dangerously catchy. Don’t tell me that I didn’t warn you.
