Hello everyone~ I’m Wendy and I’ll be blogging for piko’s interview segment on Gordon-San’s blog. ^^ Hope you guys will enjoy this blog post~! Also #STGCC was really awesome! The Staff were all helpful even though sometimes strict but they were doing a good job in performing their duties. The media was also treated well with drinks, snacks and resting area. It was a very enjoyable experience! Personally, I’m glad they invited many wonderful guest like Touya Hibiki, Kousaka Yun, Zaneeds x Monomind, Itou Noizi sensei and PIKO! Everyone had a great time at STGCC 2012! Of course I look forward to STGCC 2013! ^^
In this post I’ll be introducing minna-san to PIKO! He first started singing in 2007 when he started uploading vocaloid music covers on Nico Nico Douga. He’s a trap singer which means 「両声類」”ryouseirui”. That means Piko is a Guy okay~ ^^ Many have mistook him to be a girl due to his ability to do both guy and female voice range. In 2009 he debuted as a independent singer which he later was signed under the contract of Ki/oon records, a sub company of Sony Music Entertainment. To date he have sang various anime songs like “wasurenagusa” (勿忘草) from the anime Letter Bee, “Sakurane” (桜音) from the anime Yorinuki Gintama-San and “Make My Day” from this season’s anime Binbogami Ga (貧乏神が).
Do purchase a copy of his latest single “Make My Day”. The only way where you can bring a piece of Piko home with you ^^
Alright I shall now present you Piko’s Interview At STGCC 2012!!
Piko Interview STGCC DAY 2 Sunday September 2.
When did you first discovered about your vocal abilities?
I have been on this career for almost 4 years now whereby around one and a half years was in nico nico douga where i uploaded my Vocaloid music covers. It was then where many comments on nico nico douga had reflected about my vocal abilities. That was when I realised I actually have this kind of vocal abilities.
How did you felt when many people thought you were a girl because of the female voice range you use?
Initially, I was quite surprised about what people thought of my voice because I was just using my normal voice to sing. Then I realised I could use this ability as a special traits, a special kind of singing style that is uniquely Piko.
Do you prefer using your female voice range or male voice range?
I like both but the range that is easier and more comfortable for me is my lower voice range.
What kind of environment do you work in when you start writing lyrics? Listen to any music?
Usually when i start writing lyrics it will last from the night till next morning so I would have lots of tidbits and soft drinks on my table, just beside my PC. Everything that I would want to do or need to do would be done before I start writing.
This question is from another fan. She asked, who was the one who choreograph the “ Make My day” PV? Did you gave any ideas?
The general settings were pre-planned but the details and contents was everyone’s (crew) Idea.
What’s Your All time favourite Vocaloid Songs?
It’s the song that has the most view counts when I was still singing in Nico Douga. Koi no Senzou ( Love is War/恋の戦争 )
