Synthesized Reality Productions covered previously in Fan Group Seeks to Crowdfund Convention Concert reached their funding goal with more than 2 weeks left on their campaign.
With their Kickstarter fully funded and their much needed projector now secured, the details for their upcoming Los Angeles concert have been release and tickets are now available. Space at the concert hall is limited so seating will be reserved and tickets, though free, will be required and seats are going fast.
SRP’s Kickstarter still has more than two weeks left on their project. Tickets to the concert are free but if you would like to support their efforts stretch goals on their campaign include an improved projector, and additional stage gear including lighting and sound equipment. Check out their campaign page for more on their goals and rewards tiers.
Beyond opening event registration Pacific Media Expo also released the event program detailing the full track listing what we can expect to see as part of SRP’s upcoming show. It includes songs licenced from producers like Mitchie M, Daniwell, GaGain, Seibin JesusP, kagomeP, FeiP, and Vocalekt Visions featuring the likes of Gumi, Miku, SeeU, Lily, CUL, Rin and Len.
The program’s full track listing is available after the jump.

In a press release posted to various Vocaloid related discussion boards French company VoxWave detailed a tentative agreement between them, the Americasn at VocaTone, and the Swedish company PowerFX Systems AB to make a French-language Vocaloid. Negotiations with Yamaha Corporation are still pending but VoxWave has asked Vocaloid fans to take a market survey to help them gauge interest in the possibility of such a product.
The survey is bi-lingual including questions and responses in both English and French. The questions range from demographic information, to general product inquiries on survey taker’s experience in Vocaloid and what they look for in future Vocaloid related products. The final page of the survey includes questions as to viability of a French-language Vocaloid and raises the possibility of a bi-lingual VB in the future and crowdfunding as a possible source of seed money.

Following our coverage on Fan Group Seeks to Crowdfund Convention Concert we reached out to neutrinoP for an interview both for a bit of insight on English Gumi, the SRP Kickstarter, and more on Vocaloid music production.
Thanks for taking the time to talk with us here at Engloids.Info. For the those that don’t already know you from our EN Gumi coverage (link) would you mind introducing yourself?
Of course! I’m a former professional stage pianist. I am Romanian. Due to my paralysis, I had to quit that life more than 17 years ago. VOCALOID is my new life, a new way of expressing my feelings, a new way of sharing my own experiences with the whole world. And like a well known VOCALOID artist said too (which is pure coincidence that we are thinking the same!): “VOCALOID saved my life!” , and not just once!
Wow, that is a really empowering story. First, I have to ask, since it seems to be tradition here at Engloids.Info. Is there a story behind your name?
Yes, it is. As stage pianist, you are not always on stage, mostly below the stage. Only the singers are up there (except few representation where the entire orchestra is on stage too). So the audience hears the orchestra, but is not visible, and that means the piano too. And knowing about the newly discovered particle at that time, and comparing this to the particle itself, it sounds similar: you can’t see it, but you know is there! So… here is why my artist name! But the producer title came later, after I debuted with many covers I made for practice and also with my first original VOCALOID song. That’s how the “P” got attached to my artist name.

A fan group calling themselves Synthesized Reality Productions (SRP) has launched a Kickstarter in hopes to crowdfund an upcoming convention concert at Pacific Media Expo in Los Angles, California this coming November.
Members of SRP include staff from the Vocalekt Visions 3D Concert Group, whose 2012 concert tour included fan concerts at Anime Los Angeles, Pacific Media Expo, and Anime on Display. Previous concerts were held using rental gear which were challenging for both the concert staff, who is unable to practice, test, and optimize for the hardware they will be using, and the conventions that host them, many lacking hardware themselves.
This Kickstarter follows an unsuccessful bid earlier in the year to raise $50,000 for a full professional setup that included new projectors, screens, and light rigging. SRP seems to have lowered the bar from Vocalekt’s first attempt and set their primary goal as a new projector, with the rest of the equipment and associated costs being relegated to stretch goals.
Rewards tiers include social media shoutouts, phone charms of the group’s mascot, and of course DVDs of the concert. Additional rewards tier include CDs and/or artwork from the likes of MystSaphyr, NeutrinoP, Wolf Neve, and EmpathP, Avanna’s designer and producer of Fables of Farewell.
The highest tiers include all of the above as well as original song commissions where you can help craft a song to be featured in the concert. Check out the Kickstarter page for full details.
