I’m happy to share that today is Viki Hopper’s birthday! It’s been five years since my first upload featuring Viki in a very early stage, and it’s amazing how things have grown since then.

In July 28th’s VOCAMERICA live stream, Aki Glancy (EmpathP) announced that Viki Hopper is the “mystery UTAU” that had been advertised during the Kickstarter campaign. “Viki Hopper is a lovely bilingual UTAU the #VOCAMERICA project is thrilled to share,” says Aki Glancy (EmpathP), who has been spearheading the VOCAMERICA project for several months now.
The virtual idol will open for several east coast VOCAMERICA shows starting next summer, performing an original song written and composed by EmpathP.
On June 14th, 2016, VOCALOID and UTAU group ASDR (AssembleSynthesizeDirectRelay) released their new album Circuit Breaker, a multi-producer collaboration which aims to benefit befrienders.org, a suicide-prevention non-profit. The futuristic album ranges from punchy and occasionally dark EDM, to hard rock, and even ventures into folk-inspired music with chilling piano melodies. Combined with the unique sound of UTAU voices, Circuit Breaker is a must-listen for those looking for something new.
