”Migiwanoyado”, a SynthesizerV AI Yumenokessho POPY collaboration song produced by Hakushi Hasegawa is available on music streaming services (1/19 Fri.) along with a music video!
Have a great time listening to it♪
This song was created with 『Yumenokessho POPY』, utilizing AI technology such as deep learning, to realistically reproduce the vocal qualities, nuances, and singing styles of Toyama Kasumi, the guitarist and vocalist of Poppin'Party.
Hakushi Hasegawa is a musician based in Japan. They released the free digital EP "iPhone 6 Plus" in 2017 and made their CD debut with the EP "Somoku Hodo" at the end of their teen years in 2018. The following year, they released their first album "Air Ni Ni" in 2019. They received worldwide attention, through their appearances on the online festival "Secret Sky" hosted by Porter Robinson and "THE HIT", the streaming show hosted by Flying Lotus. In 2023, they became the first Japanese artist to sign a contract with Brainfeeder, and released the single "Mouth Flash (Kuchinohanabi)". Their experimental musicality, which deeply engages intellectual curiosity, but is also directly connected to the physicality of pop music, makes their impactful sound a sign of the beginning of a new era.
Synthesizer V was a new and unknown experience for me, but it was also a guide to the renewed known. POPY, my songwriting partner this time, sounded like a voice trying to carry on a certain context in this country’s music:
——It keeps showing me how precarious the conflict between the “real” and the “fake” is ——
In front of such a voice, I wondered if I could compose a new standard for this time which we are living. As a result, I went through an exciting process of recalling and randomly going back and forth between each of my possible contexts, and I believe that it has come to fruition in my work with a great deal of help from many people. Please enjoy...enjoy!
