UTAU

 

While living in Portland, Oregon I became excited about creating music with VOCALOID, a voice synthesis technology and software developed by Yamaha that basically sounds like Japanese robots singing. It’s so weird and fun. Unfortunately, at the time it was not supported for OSX and I chose not to adapt to Windows for the adventure. But, I found UTAU - a similar technology.  So I figured out the basics and fumbled with the Japanese keybed and commands until I was able to fish out this vocal. I made this track in a hour, and years later it remains the only time in which I’ve found fruition in the little pocket of inspiration. Every time I visit this song, it reminds me of a dormant rainbow. I will visit the robots again.
