I am LQ2', a 23-year-old Vocaloid producer from Vietnam.
You have just seen and heard my own musical arrangement for one of well-known Vocaloid songs.
My name has an apostrophe at the end. The apostrophe was frequently used during texting on old-generation mobiles, as a replacement for the acute accent ( ´ / sắc) in Vietnamese language.
LQ2' is also my own music project of mine. It was started in the summer of 2012 with a focus on remixing songs written by famous Vocaloid writers from Japan. In 2013, I started finding inspirations for my first original song. The song, named BEAT THE WORLD, was finished in 2014 and a video for the song was made and published in 2015. I have been finding new ideas since then.
What is Vocaloid?
Typically, the music you listen to are sung by real people, real voices. Vocaloid is a program for you to make complete vocal tracks for your songs. In Vocaloid, you write musical notes and then put a word into each note. And when you play, a virtual character will sing what you've written. You can change the character, how the notes are sung, and more.
In the world of Vocaloid, the most famous singer is Hatsune Miku. Right now there is only Miku (V3 version) in my studio to work with. There are so many other singers that I'd love to try, like Gumi, Megurine Luka, Kagamine Rin/Len, IA and so on. There are singers in various languages like Japanese, English, Spanish, Chinese, etc. Right now I'm focusing on writing Japanese and Vietnamese songs. I am interested in helping Vocaloid characters sing Vietnamese. I also like writing English songs too.
I run this Vocaloid music project in my free time. Meanwhile, I am learning in university. So this project runs so slow. My family doesn't really support me, and I only have a slow small computer.
I worked as a remixer and sound engineer in Vocaleek, which was a group organizing Vocaloid shows in Vietnam. Vocaleek announced its end of life in 2015.
I am always in need of upgrading my computer and buying new good materials, especially Vocaloid editor and characters. I also need to keep up my progress in the university. I don't want to rely too much on my family, and this project is my main freelance work. This Vocaloid music project has a dedicated website, and I have to make and manage it besides my music.
In 2017, I nearly finish learning in university, so I have decided to reboot the LQ2' project. From now on, I prefer composing my own music and writing my own lyrics. I am making different versions in different genres for Vocaloid songs on request too, but I prefer composing rock, electronic and orchestral music.
As the rebooting process has just begun, I also need some money to boost my presence on social networks. I'm making good music, but not many people are able to find it yet.
Even so, I will make and sell albums of my original music. There are many plans and progress that I cannot show everyone.
I think Patreon is a very nice place to show the progress and plans of this Vocaloid project. Also I would like to give out high-quality (and possibly lossless) versions of my works to great donors.
Thank you so much for visiting my Patreon page!
