Seiun Virtual Idols was founded by graphic designer Ben Laud, with help from fellow vocal synthesis fan Matsu. Inspired by retro-futuristic dreams of glowing holograms and digital pop stars, it’s mission is to make unique and dynamic voices.
Seiun is based in Providence, Rhode Island, but has been lucky enough to collaborate with talented individuals from all over the place. Since Viki’s release in May 2016, the virtual idol has been featured in original works by awesome producers such as Avalia, Nov0x, EmpathP, and Seagull.
Viki also made a cameo appearance in The Disturbance of Fermi, the 2017 Global Game Jam entry by Chimera Labs.
Currently, Viki is on tour performing live via hologram with VOCAMERICA, the western Vocaloid Concert. The virtual idol serves as an ambassador for UTAU, singing and dancing alongside the fantastic and diverse lineup of VOCALOID and UTAU acts. To see when VOCAMERICA will be in your area, check out their upcoming shows.
