ShoshoP / 少々P

mylist | community | piapro

ShoshoP is not a very popular Vocaloid producer, but he is a well-rounded one in terms of Vocaloid use and music genres spanned. He's probably one of the most adventurous Ps I've ever seen as well as one of the most prolific, for he had uploaded around 40 songs in the span of just two years. Because of his wide variety of styles, it's hard to pinpoint a specialty or distinct quality in his works.

ShoshoP started uploading his songs in Nico Nico Douga sometime late 2009, although he had become very active in 2010. Since his debut, he has composed songs in different genres, including ballad, pop, rock and rock ballads, folk (mostly traditional Japanese and Arabian), etc. He uses a variety of sounds and instruments and each of his songs is distinctly unique from one another. Despite that, it seems he's a bit inclined to using acoustic guitars and violins in his songs. One characteristic of his songs is that no matter how simple the melody may be, it still sounds like an elaborate ensemble, that even his piano ballads still sound grand. Most of the time, someone else provides the lyrics to his songs, so he concentrates more on the elaborate melodies of his works.

He has used a lot of Vocaloids but most of the time, he concentrates on using the different Miku Append libraries. Aside from that, he has used Gakupo, Kagamine Rin/Len, Lily, GUMI, and Kiyoteru. All his Vocaloids are tuned high and solid, with the exception of Miku Append who always sounds whispery. He has a fascination of making crack songs, too, and they're often his most-viewed works. Aside from that, he has written songs involving lyrics in different languages, like Chinese and German, which is quite a feat considering the Vocaloids he use are more apt to be used in Japanese songs.

I have so many feelings for ShoshoP, I don't know where to start. First, I discovered him because of his BL song (I'm shameless...) but when I looked at his mylist, it's like a magical place and I can't stop listening to his works. One thing is because everything is just so different from everything else. Normally you'd find a common denominator among the songs no matter what genre they are (tuning quirks, favorite instrument, familiar rhythm), but his works just don't have any. I think it's what makes his works a nice listen. If he releases an album, it'd sound like one big compilation of genres XD. I'm also a bit sad that my favorite works of his don't have that many views, which makes me wonder since they're all awesome.
