Hiyama Kiyoteru VOCALOID2

Hiyama Kiyoteru (氷山キヨテル) is a Japanese VOCALOID developed and distributed by AH-Software Co. Ltd., and was released in December 2009. His voice is provided by Japanese male singer Kiyoshi Hiyama (比山貴咏史, Hiyama Kiyoshi).

ConceptEdit

He and Kaai Yuki were released as "student" and "teacher" VOCALOIDs.

EtymologyEdit

His surname "Hiyama" seems to be taken from his provider's name ("Kiyoshi Hiyama"). His Ice Mountain name of "Ice Teru" is a play on words; "Hiyama," (氷山) means "ice mountain."

AppearanceEdit

Kiyoteru is meant to be portrayed as a sensei (teacher), dressed in formal attire. Kiyoteru's tie clip is a motif of Yamaha's electric upright bass SLB100 and his glasses are ZS92001A by Zoff.[2]

In his depictions as member of ICE MOUNTAIN, he appears with a more rebel and informal appearance.

ProfileEdit

Kiyoteru is a teacher who participates in a rock band called Ice Mountain on weekends, with the stage name "Ice Mountain Teru." According to the book Ice Mountain, the default configuration for his software package happens to be Kiyoteru's vocals as a rookie singer. He is also said to be good at mathematics.

His favourite microphones are also were given as:

  • BEHRINGER Ultravoice XM8500 (during his junior high and high school years)
  • SHURE SM58 (college years)
  • SHURE Beta 58A / RODE NT1-A (current favorite)
