Concerts, songs, dancing and special lighting effects compose the absolute summer (not only) experience. The audience cheers and the artists are doing their best on the stage. But what’s the real success, when this artist isn’t as the usual ones, but he reaches the absolute limit of the imagination, of course, with some aid of technology? The answer is, huge! That can be proved with the hologram of the Japanese singer, Hatsune Miku. Since (at least) the last eight years, Hatsune is inovating at fashion and the music industry.
The sixteen years old 3D girl made her presence known mainly in 2008 and her turquoise pigtails are already famous to the worshippers of the Japanese manga. By herself and with the corporate of the special software which is constructed by the Crypton Future Media, she managed to sing in front of a huge global audience. In 2014, apart from these and while Hatsune filled out five years on stage, she opened Lady Gaga’s global ArtRave: The Artpop Ball tour. It is also remarkable her cooperation with Pharrel Williams in Japanese group Livetune’s song, entitled “Last night, Good night”.
Such an invention with this huge global success couldn’t be kept out of the fashion industry. Truth be told, the highly skilled Italian fashion designer, Riccardo Tisci, dressed Hatsune. As he mentioned in a recent interview: “The outfit has multiple types of lace…and intermittently, though you can’t see them from far away, there are individual Swarovski crystals.”
As the designer stated, and it is something commonly accepted, Japan is indeed 20 to 30 years ahead from all of us and that doesn’t dissatisfy anyone. So, for all of them who loved Hatsune’s hologram and would like to see her up close, her tour started on the 23rd of April at North America, which concludes at the beginning of June.
