Space+Time Interviews Robert Hedin of anaROBIK feat. Lola

Robert Hedin producer of annaROBIK feat. LOLA

Time+Space a site affiliated with Zero-G that distributes  samples, sound libraries, and virtual instruments interviews Robert Hedin the creator of “Anarobik“, an alias for Vocaloid Lola that acts as the lead singer and ‘stage name’ of Robert’s electronic music projects.

Interview Excerpt:

How did Vocaloid Lola first come to your attention? What was it about the product that prompted you to buy it?
I’m sure I discovered Lola by browsing the internet.  I had the concept of anaROBIK several years before I had the idea of using a Vocaloid.  Once I started listening to the demos of Vocaloids, it became obvious rather quickly that Vocaloid was the technology of choice, and Lola was the one I wanted to work with.  I think she has the most versatile voice that can be placed in a very wide range of musical settings, and it just seems to work.  I really wanted a voice that allows me a lot of creative freedom, I didn’t want to be stylistically trapped by a voice, and I don’t feel that I am with Lola.

aniROBIK is a great example of “Vocaloid as a Software” rather than “Vocaloid as a Character” where the Vocaloid is transformed by the artist into something unique and can go beyond the limitations of their boxart using the artist’s creativity as a medium.
