Hatsune Miku & Kodo:
The Next Stage of a Truly Dynamic Collaboration
Coming Soon to NHK Hall!

We are pleased to announce that Kodo will take part in an encore collaboration with virtual singer Hatsune Miku on June 2 & 3. Save the date for the weekend and join us at NHK Hall for This is NIPPON Premium Theater “Hatsune Miku x Kodo Special Live Performance 2018”!

A year has passed since our first explosive performances with Hatsune Miku in March 2017. The fusion of our distinct sounds created a vibrant new realm that enveloped the audience, conjuring a whirlpool of energy and emotion that connected everyone in the arena.

Tell Your World

The next stage in our collaboration will be a bold step forward. So we are sure a new world of sound awaits us all! Hatsune Miku is renowned as a virtual singer who has leapt beyond the limits of synthetic vocal software to perform on the world stage. Kodo is often described as a pioneer in Japanese performing arts, traveling extensively around the globe to share the sound of Japan. Our second collaboration promises to show the evolution of this unique union and “This is NIPPON Premium Theater” is the perfect forum to share it. If you can, please come along to experience this performance live!

※ In the lead up to the Tokyo 2020 Olympics and Paralympics, Japanese Broadcasting Company NHK will broaden the global spotlight on sports to also reveal Japan’s fascinating culture through their “This is NIPPON Premium Theater” series. These NHK productions will be broadcast nationwide and worldwide to share creative programs featuring an eclectic array of Japan’s preeminent artists, showcasing the dynamic spectrum of Japanese arts and culture.

Hatsune Miku

The “Hatsune Miku” voice synthesizer software was developed by Crypton Future Media. It allows users to make a female character called Hatsune Miku sing songs, simply by entering the lyrics and melody of their choice. Many creators have used Hatsune Miku to make music to share online, which has prompted a wave of interactive user activity in Japan and abroad. First gaining attention as a software character, Hatsune Miku is now popular around the world as a virtual singer with sell-out live performances and her own merchandise. In 2018, she will give performances in seven major cities in the USA and Mexico, followed by large performance events in Tokyo and Osaka and her European debut in Europe. Her popularity and performance activities continue to expand around the globe.
