First, a note to The Wife: She’s not real. She’s a hologram. And I’m not so much in love with her as I am with the concept and the technology behind her.
No, I’m not a fan of her (its?) music, but I’m fascinated by what she (it? them?) has managed to accomplish.
If you don’t know who (what?) Katsune Miku is, then read this article from Wired:
Miku is not human. She is a virtual idol, a holographic star. Miku is crowdsourced, ever-evolving, famous software. Not even her fans know, or care, how to taxonomize her. (“She’s rather more like a goddess: She has human parts, but she transcends human limitations. She’s the great posthuman pop star,” one fansite reads.) Her bandmates are all actual people playing real instruments, but Miku is projected onto the stage, singing, if that’s the word, in avian-robot trills. She was programmed to do this months before, thousands of miles away.
