so it’s more of an open secret than anything – secret because i rarely spoke about this, but i was still pretty open about the fact that it’s a thing – that i used to do the singing-on-youtube thing as well!! i’ve been doing it since roughly 2009 (there used to be a cover of me singing ryo’s Melt and also the OHSHC opening on yt, it’s long gone now thank god), then i’ve been doing it on and off since then. not only that, but a few years into the game, i realized i really liked rapping to the vocaloid songs as well. and thus, my current idol persona was born.

for songwriting and singing – generally, my performer persona, i go under the name iDEA! it comes from the fact that an old friend of mine, when i asked her to describe me in one word she chose ‘idealistic.’ i just ran with it after the fact and it stuck ever since.

with the current, 2016 incarnation of iDEA, i’m hoping to be a lot more adventurous with my stuff and also, like… i’m not going to be super hung up on the fact i can’t sing very well. i know my strengths and also i’ve got autotune. the end. = 3=

i’m also part of several groups!! including an idol duo with a friend of mine, to which we will debut very soon. ^q^ so get hype for that.

ALL THAT BEING SAID here i covered Deco*27’s Ghost Rule; i also did the pv!! check it out!!!


i can’t believe chou let me do more mixing for her – especially for one of my favourite vocaloid songs!! this one is a bit of a milestone for me as it was my first foray (in recent times, anyway) messing with autotune in mixing — it does add to the song rather than detract, which is what i was worried about.

you should listen to chou’s cover — she’s super good!! she even drew the image for the video !! ^0^

mixing for chou

my good friend chou is a utaite (or youtaite, as some of the cool kids call it) – recently, i did the mixing for some of her covers!! you should check them out! ^0^
