This phenomenon is simply a high tech version of the Monkees, or even more so...The Archies. I don't believe it suggests any ominous signs of a world without musicians. After all, the music in the live shows is performed with a live band. Even though thousands of create their own songs, videos and animation....the hits are actually written by professional studio musicians. Still, the most interesting thing about Hatsune Miku is the extent of the fan participation. There are certainly some useful lessons that real musicians can glean from the highly interactive relationship that the fans have with the product.
