Magical Musical Machines


You might have heard about a special guest appearance at the Coachella Music Festival earlier this month, a 2D hologram of the late hip hop icon Tupac Shakur. You also may be a fan of J-Pop, some of which uses a vocal synthesizing program to perform Vocaloid. Its most famous performer is Hatsune Miku. The 16-year-old virtual singer played four shows in Tokyo without missing a beat — or a note — earlier this year.

While the futuristic concept might sounds a little strange, it’s actually pretty entertaining, which is sort of the point of a concert. We want to know what you think –¬†would you go to a concert by a performer who isn’t really there?
