AIｘMisora Hibari: Arekara (Ever Since Then)
This event has ended.
The legendary songstress and cultural icon Hibari Misora (1937-1989) shines brightly among the Showa Era’s most popular songs. NHK set itself the challenge to faithfully reproduce with Japan’s highest-quality AI technology her “mystic singing voice” which still today continues to deeply capture the hearts of Japanese people. The new song Arekara (Ever Since Then) composed by Yasushi Akimoto is presented here using Misora’s voice, revived for the first time in 30 years by using AI technology. Her voice, including vibrato, harmonic overtones, and even breathing, has been precisely reproduced, while her image is brought back to life in a life-size Ultra High Definition 3D format.
