I’ve been trying out the Vocaloid software, which synthesizes a Japanese female voice. The name give is “Hatsune Miku”. Usually they are used for pop songs, but I don’t really compose that kind of music, and it seems to work somewhat decently in this context. The first song is here (lyrics taken from a classical Japanese poem by Ono no Komachi):
I also put up a youtube video in which you can see the synthesizer program doing it’s thing along with the lyrics and translation. But of course, youtube butchers the sound quality.
The lyrics are from a love poem written by the classical Japanese poet Ono no Komachi.
