The Technical Brilliance Behind KAF’s “My Voice”

This is not just another music video; it’s a technological marvel. For the first time, KAF takes on a virtual human form in a music video. Leveraging state-of-the-art technology, she displays a range of expressions that go beyond traditional virtual performances. This serves as a watershed moment, challenging the limits of what virtual artists can accomplish.

Virtual Performers: Pioneers and New Horizons

While KAF is part of a broader movement of virtual performers, she brings something new to the table. Preceding vocaloid artists like Hatsune Miku have laid the groundwork in this domain. However, ‘My Voice’ elevates the discourse by blurring the lines between virtual and real-world expressions even further.
