i feel like one of my biggest issues with vocaloid original making is i feel like theres two ways to do it, both ways having very different levels of interest: 1) you make a song with a vocaloid and all art/video content is of that vocaloid in your song or 2) you make a song using vocaloid but all content is about an original character/story
while i like using vocaloid for original songs because i dont want to sing- i feel like when making my songs i get way too caught up in presentation. will it be more successful if i use the vocaloid as the face for my song? or will people be interested in my original story ideas? in one sense i like the idea of just making music to make music, not attaching any kind of vocaloid character to it bc i dont want ppl's thoughts to be "i like because its a vocaloid song/uses my fave vocaloid". on the same end i dont tend to tie my stories/ocs to my music at all, i do it for fun/as a hobby. but i still dont...want my songs to be attached to vocaloids for the sake of Being Vocaloid Songs. idk. i havent written anything original in a good while, but my last last song DID You was a weird one bc it covered a very personal topic and while i made it purely on that intention and nothing else- using flower as the art in the video flt more like i was reaching to folk who just care about v flower songs, nothing else.
i guess its more of a personal feeling to have this vibe that everything i present online is being consumed with specific intentions that i wish i could change, lol. just thoughts.
