|A sample of a cover song by Senka|
"Pierrot", composed by KEI
Senka (染香) is an utaite known most prominently for his extremely flexible voice, easily being able to produce a male and female voice without using a voice changer or editing his voice, most clearly heard in his cover of "Pierrot".
His male voice is smooth, mid range and could be described as ikemen. His female voice is high and clear, and is easily one of the most outstanding of the community. For this reason, he is a trap, or a "ryouseirui". Senka tends to put more emotional quality into his singing, as seen through his 'crying' in "Pierrot", giving the songs he covers a more meaningful interpretation.
He was once known as Kuze/Kuzu, but he has deleted all songs associated with this name for unknown reasons.
Senka is a very secretive utaite, as he does not release very much information about himself. Despite this, he appeared in person at THE VOC@LOID MASTER 20 to release his first album.
He is part of the doujin circle "Necklace" with the artist RAHWIA. RAHWIA also illustrates and animates original PV's for many of Senka's cover. They typically feature a male character with mid length black hair in a tragic story interpretation of the song.
On May 25, 2012, Senka announced he would be ceasing all activity under that name on Nico Nico and would start under a new name, however, would no longer be doing Utattemita videos. He will, however, create a compilation CD of his works. The announcement was made concurrently on his community page by RAHWIA.
**He is now active under a new name, Akira Kusunoki. He is working at Studio Guiana as a producer as well as singer.
