About

 Project Sonata is a USA-based charity fund that uses the Japanese synth program UTAU to create vocals for our mascot, Sonata. I just so happen to also be her voice provider! UTAU is a free-to-download program that was made by a Japanese programmer, AMEYA. Since the program's release, there have been countless characters created by many people in the online community that is still growing. It's become a wonderful creative outlet since with UTAU, you create an avatar and give it a voice!

 Sonata is the face of Project Sonata, an avatar that looks like a conductor-esque young woman with long purple hair. She has a voice created using the Japanese synthesis program UTAU. Many different usages of her can be found on YouTube, and our previous album, The Light Current! She is multilingual, and currently has Korean, Japanese, and English support. 

 

Currently, we plan to have this album printed with jewel casing! As this risks some damages like the plastic cracking or scratching, we would love to be able to upgrade to Digipak-style cases, like these! Of course, these are more expensive to print in mass amounts. So if we can reach $4,500 before the end of our funding period, we will be upgrading to Digipak cases!

As said before, any leftover money that we have will be added onto our donation to the NAfME. The more we can gain, the better our donation can be! 

Risks and challenges

What we risk is not being able to do this at all. If we do not meet our goal, then there will be no physical release, and no additional merchandise. We will still release on Bandcamp for a digital download in Spring 2017.
