You could argue that all Pop stars are created, but not to the same extent as Hatsune Miku. Starting life as a vocaloid program created by Japanese developers, and evolving into a full-blown virtual Pop star and cyber celebrity with hit singles worldwide and sellout stadium performances, she comes to the Barbican in Still Be Here. We spoke to artists Mari Matsutoya and Darren Johnston about Hatsune, her back-story and the Barbican project, Still Be Here. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
