Music Monday – Magnet [Clear x Dasoku]

For the subject of today’s Music Monday, I thought I’d take a look at Hatsune Miku, a synthesised vocaloid software developed by Yamaha in 2004 designed to create inexpensive vocals for music. Whilst she was originally intended to be a mascot character for the software, once exposed to the vibrant, chaotic energies of the internet, she has since taken on a life on her own through fan-created art and music.

Since I myself have only just begun to delve into the vast amount of Hatsune Miku content available on the internet, so far I’ve been really enjoying two particular songs featuring her :

Both of these are by Ryo, the leader of the music group Supercell, whom you may already be acquainted with, as they did the Bakemonogatari ED ‘Kimi ga Shiranai Monogatari’ – which was actually their first work which didn’t feature Hatsune Miku as the vocals.At first, listening to her voice was an interesting experience and admittedly a little unnerving. However, after being more exposed to it, I’ve really come to enjoy her music – or more accurately, the hard work of the talented musicians behind her voice.
