Fireflies cover -- with Prima and original music

I recently posted my forth Vocaloid piece on YouTube. It is a cover of Fireflies by Owl City. I liked the tune and the lyrics and thought it would be a challenge for Prima to sing, and a fun video to make.

I wanted it to sound like how a more traditional band might play it, so I changed the instruments from synthesizers to piano, drums, bass, and a keyboard string section to fill it out. There are a lot of words and it was a struggle to find the best phonemes and accents for Vocaloid pronunciation. There are still a few odd spots in her voice.


For the video, I thought the lyrics inspired a connection between fireflies and stars, so the video showcases stars, constellations, the zodiac, and a trip around the Earth and through the solar system thanks to NASA images and video clips.


Thanks for checking it out.
