Did you always want to be a musician? Or was this a profession you came across by accident?

At first I didn’t have any ideas of trying to be a musician, I did this as more of a hobby, and never thought about it as a job.

What styles of music have influenced and do you sometimes take queues from other artists?

I take a lot of different genres and put them into my music.

What kind of music do you listen to in your spare time, what’s on your personal playlists?

I don’t listen to a lot of music in my free time, but I love to visit clubs and listen to club style music

Now we are at an Naka Kon, so I’m going to ask you some anime related questions? Did you grow up watching anime?

As a child I did watch some anime, but during my high school years is when I would watch the most

What inspires you as an artist?

I was inspired to create vocaloid music by my senior K Zen, who taught me a lot about vocaloid music.

Do you have any tips for aspiring artists?

I don’t want to give tips out to my potential rivals! (Laughter), seriously though while there is a lot of information on the internet now a days, the first step in becoming a musician, even though it’s a ton of hard work, the best thing to do is complete one whole song. That should be your first step.

Awesome. That wraps up everything for us, again thank you for taking your time to speak with us, and we look forward to seeing you perform.

Thank you.

Hachioji P went on to perform at both of Naka-Kon’s dance parties and tore the house down both times. He kept the party hype and energetic, and it was an awesome way to end the days at the convention. Hachioji P was presented by Babel Entertainment.
