The World of VOCALOID...
"The beginning of the VOCALOID phenomenon"
1) Fusion of "people who love music" and "people who love characters".
These two worlds that had no relation at all now have a point of contact focusing on VOCALOID (because there are characters).
2) VOCALOID that the users cultivated
Cultivating the character images that come with VOCALOID software packages to create a singer for songs made by users.
Choice of users - birth of a VOCALOID-P*
*Creators of musical pieces who use VOCALOID are called VOCALOID-P (VOCALOID Producer). These songs are called VOCALOID (or VOCALO) songs.
3) VOCALOID works published online
Works published on YouTube and Nico Video have many listeners and people make secondary and tertiary works of popular songs. Works that have been played more than 100,000 times are entered into the "Hall of Fame". Since people can watch and download things for free from the internet, the popularity has further accelerated.
4) From Virtual to Real
Virtual online communities popped out into the general society through individual Doujin meetings.
