EHAMIC Looking for Artists for AHS VOCALOID 10th Anniversary Compilation Album **UPDATED 11/7/2019**

Producer EHAMIC recently made a tweet announcing a new project: an AHS VOCALOID compilation album to celebrate the 10th anniversary of AHS’s entrance into the VOCALOID scene with the releases of Hiyama Kiyoteru, Kaai Yuki, and SF-A2 miki on December 4, 2009!

This project is completely fan-created, and is meant to serve as a thank-you message to AHS for all that they have done for VOCALOID fans for the past decade. He intends to present fan contributions to the album throughout his various autumn and winter events, and believes that the time is now ripe to finally get this project off the ground.

Rules for Contributing Songs to the Album:

1. They must use the AHS VOCALOIDs

2. Whether pro or amateur, anyone who creates and puts out music can enter

3. You must be able to contact the project staff through social media (preferably Twitter)
※The one to contact will be 田仲ななみ / Tanaka Nanami

4. Your song must be themed around birthdays, celebrations, anniversaries, etc. They can be new or existing songs, as long as they do not stray too far from these themes.

Rules for Contributing Illustrations to the Album:

1. They must use the AHS VOCALOIDs

2. Whether pro or amateur, anyone who draws and puts out artwork can enter

3. You must be able to contact the project staff through social media (preferably Twitter)
※The one to contact will be 田仲ななみ / Tanaka Nanami

4. Your illustration must be themed around birthdays, celebrations, anniversaries, etc. They can be new or existing drawings, as long as they do not stray too far from these themes.

5. You have to have drawn and posted at least 3 works for any of the target AHS VOCALOID characters online before.

Target AHS VOCALOID Characters:

1. Kaai Yuki (no longer taking contributions)

2. Hiyama Kiyoteru (no longer taking contributions)

3. Nekomura Iroha (no longer taking contributions)

4. Tohoku Zunko (no longer taking contributions)

5. Yuzuki Yukari (no longer taking contributions)

6. Kizuna Akari (no longer taking contributions)

7. Haruno Sora (no longer taking contributions)

8. Macne Nana (no longer taking contributions)

9. SF-A2 miki (no longer taking contributions)

Song Contribution Deadlines

1. Now looking for someone to handle song mixing and passing them on to the project leaders. Artists have until September 10 to upload the paradata of their entries online and provide them with the URL.

2. Also looking someone who can handle everything up to the song mixing on their own. Artists have until September 20 to send the project planners a WAV file (48kHz/24bit) of their entries.

Illustration Contribution Deadline and Guidelines

Artists have until September 10 to upload your illustration online and provide the project staff with the URL.

They will be used as 12cm x 12 cm CD jackets.

Resolution must be about 400 dpi to be suitable for printing. Even if they end up being larger than that, the project planners can still use them for PR and promotional projects, so they can still help.

Whether or not song lyrics can fit on the illustration as a CD jacket, that is something to think about at a later time, so artists need not concern themselves with that.

Prizes for Winners

Winners will receive the completed album. Other prizes are currently to be determined.

Release Plans

EHAMIC is currently planning on releasing the album at the VOCALOID STREET doujin event on October 20. If it will not be completed in time, then they will aim for a release at THE VOC@LOID M@STER on November 17.

EHAMIC would also like to plan an event in which the project staff and fans in Tokyo will all bring the album to AHS headquarters and thank the AHS personnel themselves!

**UPDATE ON AUGUST 26, 2019**

EHAMIC has confirmed that the album project is now fully staffed, and is no longer taking recruits.

If any developments are announced between now and the album’s completion, we will continue to report on them!

**UPDATE ON AUGUST 29, 2019**

We now have a name for the album. It will be called “Anniversary☆ Hearty Songs” as was determined in a poll on EHAMIC’s Twitter account! And yes, the title of the album abbreviating to “A.H.S.” was intentional!

**UPDATE ON November 7, 2019**

EHAMIC made two very special announcements today.

First, the AHS VOCALOID 10th anniversary compilation album, Anniversary☆Hearty Songs, will be distributed at THE VOC@LOID M@STER 43 event on November 17, 2019 as planned!

Secondly, he will also host an AHS thank-you party that AHS President and CEO, Tomohide Ogata, and Yuzuki Yukari voice provider, Chihiro Ishiguro, will be attending on December 15! Attendees will have the chance to meet with, talk to, and express their gratitude to the guests of honor for the past ten years of enjoyment that they provided for fans. EHAMIC is even planning on presenting flowers to them as a group!

Stay tuned for ticket information that is expected to be revealed on November 13!
