As some of you may recall, Miku had her first 'Live Concert' in the US back in September. We, unfortunately, weren't able to be present at the event.
However, the turnout for that was high enough that they scheduled an encore performance on the 11th of October, complete with a guest appearance by, as they put it, "The creator of Miku."
We did manage to attend this event.
The CEO of Crypton Future Media, Inc., Hiroyuki Itoh, was the aforementioned "creator of Miku," and was present at the beginning of the encore concert to give a presentation about what Vocaloids were and how they've evolved.
Prior to Mr. Itoh's presentation, there was a short lead-in by the editor-in-chief of Tokyo Kawaii Magazine (an iPod/iPhone e-magazine), Toshihiro Fukuoka, during which he talked briefly about their upcoming, Hatsune Miku-centric, November issue.
As a number of Vocaloidism members were in attendance, we have a 5-part (shaky, phone-cam'd) recording of both the presentation and the lead-in, for your viewing pleasure (after the break).
