A friend of mine translated this for me~


VocaloidBrasil: What's the story behind the name Mitchie M?
Michie M: I once worked under the pseudonym Mitchiell Mitchie, inspired by Mitch Mitchell, drummer of the Jimi Hendrix Experience. But I realized that the name was a little long and I decided to shorten it to Mitchie M was when I began producing tracks for Miku.

VB: How did you find vocaloid?
M: Miku was on the big news when it launched, it was more or less at the time.

VB: Where do you find inspiration?
Mitch M:I listen a lot of music, and when i find good music i fell inspired

VB:How much takes to produce a song? can you tell us how work your creative process?
Mitch M: Normally i spend a week to write and produce a song, depends off the song, than i spend two weeks to edit the vocaloid, first i work in the time of the song, then in the chord progression, then i write a melody and make a demo. after that i work in the lyrics and the karaoke, use the vocals and finally, make the mix for the track
VB: When you start composing songs? and why?
M: When i was on the high school. i was on a band and we play covers, but i aways want to write my own musics, so i started
VB: What singers influence you?

M: I'm not answering this because is an brazilian interview, but my biggest influence is Tom Jobim (Antônio Carlos Jobim)

VB: What's your secret to make Miku sound so well?
M: I only try to imitate the characteristics of the human voice and i spend a lot of time editing the voice. i don't use any software

VB: Have you lost some work?
M: No, I always make a back up.

VB: How did you get the oportunity to make the song of Miku's birthday?
M: I'm using mainly Miku, but they asked me if i could make a song for Miku's birthday, as if were a gift from the other Vocaloid (Rin, Len, Meiko, Luka e Kaito). I really liked the idea and i ended buying all other software and learned how to use them to do this song.

VB: How do you feel being responsible for Miku's birthday song?
M: I felt very flattered when they asked me to make the music of the fifth anniversary of Miku, I gave my best to incorporate the feelings and desires that many fans around the world has for her.

VB: Are you interested in the English voicebank Miku?
M: I'm waiting for the launch of Miku English, I would love to do a song in English for her.

VB: What do you think the growing popularity of vocaloid and Miku in the world?
M: I think it is well recognized vocaloid only in a very specific market segment, but it's good to see that many people are enchanted with the charm of the scene vocaloid.
VB: Do you think vocaloid can become popular enough to reach the level in the mainstream music scene? What about the future of vocaloid itself, what do you think?
M: Electronic music has become very popular compared to acoustic music, I think in the future, vocaloid music will be popular. I think that in future the technology will progress and the voice will be much more real.

VB: Do you like a vocaloid 3? Also intends to use some of Miku and Luka?
M: Technically speaking, the vocaloid 3 has more quality than the v2, but I really like the character Miku, I'm currently trying to get the best of which is Miku so I'm just focused on it.

VB: Have you tried any software apart from vocaloid? How Utau, Sinsy?
M: I've never used before, but I know you can create your own library of voice with Utau and can make it sound very realistic, so I'm interested in that.

VB: Do you keep in touch with other producers? What are your favorite songs beyond that yourself compose?
M: The Captain Mirai gave me advice when I started using vocaloid, i still talk to him. I really like World's End Dacehall of wowaka is a really cool song.

VB: What are your hobbies?
M: I like to ride a bike when I am caught in a composition, I take my bike and go for a walk.

VB: Do you have any message to the Brazilian fandom?
M: I love Brazilian music, I am very happy to know that there are people interested in Japanese music vocaloid. I'm anxious to hear vocaloid producers from Brazil.

VB: Do you know anyone here?
M: Unfortunately not, but I'd love it if I have fans in Brazil they follow me on twitter.

I'm assuming someone else linked this to him? Or...

And yeah an English Miku song, even if it's not a demo, by him would be awesome.

Thanks a lot for the translation. Yes, I do agree with him, Miku's best is still untapped, and I really hope that he can push Miku to the max.

And 1 week to just edit the vocals? And he didn't use any software? Kudos! That really need a lot of dedication.

p/s: That again, dedication among Vocaloid fans are one of the best I've seen in recent years. Still remember Innocence 3DPV taking 1 year to be completed, several years ago. Awesome indeed.

@Riddler's Dream: Your friend used Google Translate like a lot. Incidentally, somehow, the entire interview came out completely readable with it.
