Does anyone know any songs by Kiyoteru's voice provider? His name is Kiyoshi Hiyama IIRC.
I believe he worked with YAMAHA. He's said to be a singer involved in early development of vocaloids. He once appeared in a Nico broadcast talked about his work and Kiyoteru. They even played a Kiyoteru song and he sang one or two notes from the song.
I've got one album of his. It's an acappella album released in 1999. He not only sang all the songs and harmony by himself but also (I believe) sampled his voice, changed its pitch and other parameters to make it possible to perform an acappella song live, all alone on stage. I don't know if it's anything related to the vocaloid technique, but one of the first vocaloid technicians, Hideki Matsutake, has worked with him on this sampling-adjusting thing. This performance can be seen here:
His voice is surely adorable, sadly only one solo album can be found, plus some short songs on nico. He's a member of a large acappella club in Japan, it might be the reason why AHS likes to tweet it when people does acapella covers with Kiyoteru.
It might be a little off topic but I hope it helps
