“Behind the Curtain” Project Launches


Behind the Curtain Project

A large-scale collaboration project is now underway between some of the top names in the Western VOCALOID community. Participants in project “Behind the Curtain” are working to create a series of new original songs designed to spread awareness of bullying and sexual harassment. The deadline, February 29th, known in Canada as Pink Shirt Day, is a day set aside to draw attention to the victims of bullying and other forms of harassment.

Organized by VOCALOID Community member Aelita via YouTube (YouTube channel “meganekkoAeli”), the invited participants have now moved to Skype and are well on the way to completion.

 ”I’ve named the project ‘Behind the Curtain’. The curtain is a representation of the media and how they hide and even dehumanize social issues such as bullying and sexual abuse to the point where it becomes more of a literary tool than an actual issue. My intent with this project is to lift that curtain, by showing that such pain is REAL, and that it is one of THE MOST painful things one will experience.”

~Aelita, Project Organizer

Despite being a collaboration of VOCALOID fans, there is no requirement to use the software at all. The members are divided into two groups: Producers who write the music, and EVVs (English VOCALOID Vocalists, also called Utaites) who sing the music.  On the whole, the group has been organized into pairs; one Producer, and one EVV per team.

The list of participants has changed a bit since the project began and is likely to shift here and there, but here is the roster at this moment:

Producers Utaites (EVVs)
Empath-P
Apol-P
Circus-P
AELITA
Vocalekt Visions
Koda-P
Hoshizora Project
Eyes-P
Haru
Razzy
Kenji
Luna
MichiRachie
Sohly
Self-selected Vocalist
Self-selected Vocalist

 

Videos for the completed songs will be uploaded to the Producers’ YouTube Channels, with a compilation of previews on the project’s own channel, btcvocaloidproject. You can also find information about their progress on the group’s Twitter feed, btc_vocaloid.

      Hello, this is Kenji, a member of the project.  Could you give me your YouTube channel or some proof that you compose music?  The project leader can’t find any of your works anywhere under your name.

      Hi, this is Aelita, the organizer of the project.
      I’m sorry, the project is invitation-only and, as incomplete the list shown is, all members have been selected. There are no sign-ups.
      Thank you for your interest, though~ ^w^

  • Aelita Heughes

    There have been two musicians that I had forgotten to include in the list in which Koda-P had based off of for this article:

    Chii (chiizuzu on YT) will be joining me and Luna, and Ehmz (aisatsunin on YT) is currently paired up with Empath-P and Haru. Both are vocalists for the project. o w o bb

    Please look forward to our project~!! m(__ __)m
