Your Song

■ABOUT Your Song■

What is Your Song?
Until now, we have mainly had the artist (music industry/writers) send their message in to the world through song. But there are so many moving stories & messages laying dormant that are yet to be heard.  So this time Sayulee wants to pioneer in sharing  YOUR story (the audience) with the world!
Your Song is participatory music creation with the audience, where Sayulee will create music to YOUR lyrics and share it with the world. “But I’m not a lyricist or a musician?! I’ve never written any songs before!” you may say…. Don’t worry! That is the whole point, making it fun and fresh! Sayulee will guide you through the creation of your lyrics (if you are selected) then Sayulee will put a melody to your lyrics.
The completed ‘Your Song’ will be made in to a music video that will be shared on You Tube.
We will also share another video to introduce the Story behind Your Song. So we would like to interview you about your Story if you are selected also.
*If you want to remain anonymous, that is no problem at all. We can use some other materials that can be used for the video (such as pictures/letters/voice message).
Those interesting stories selected will become songs and broadcasted to the world.
PLEASE NOTE:
The lyrics may need to be changed in order to work in with the melody, but your words/message will remain as they are, as much as possible.

■Your Song VIDEO CONTENTS■

Your Song videos will be uploaded weekly on  Sayulee’s You Tube channel for 6 months starting from March 2015.
We will make 2 videos for each ‘Your Song’ episode.12 songs in total. 24 videos. *Video content
Video 1) Your Song MV・・・ Sayulee performs ‘Your Song’ 
Video 2) Your Song Story ・・・ Video sharing the story and back ground of the song
E.g.) “I made this song to encourage my father in hospital” .  It will be like a documentary video including an interview with you.

■FAQs■

Q) I don't want my name or face to be known…

A) Of course we can use a nickname on video, change your voice, or hide your face through video effects. You can remain as anonymous as you like.

Q) I've never written lyrics before / I'm not a professional writer...

A) Do you have an interesting story? A message? Then that’s ok! It doesn’t always have to be “lyrics” as such.
You can just write your story in detail, brainstorm phrases and ideas,  and Sayulee can compile them in to lyrics also.
But please DO try to be as creative as possible in this process and be genuine.

Q) I've never heard anything since I applied...

A) Due to the large numbers of application to filter through, we will only contact those who have actually been chosen.
We are not able to tell you if/when you will hear from us. But please do remain patient and enjoy the Your Song project in the mean time!

Q) Can I apply twice(or more)?

A) You can apply as many times as you like!

Q) I'm not living in Japan...can I still apply to this?

A) Yes, as long as you agree with the conditions listed on the terms of conditions. The interviewing process will become difficult, so if you are selected, we may need you to send us video footage of your self answering the interview questions.
Or anything else that will help with the Your Song Story video.

Q) Does it have to be in Japanese?

A) With the majority of Sayulee’s audience being Japanese, Japanese would be ideal but English is fine too. Any other language, Sayulee will not be able to read it so please stick to either English or Japanese. You can always mix up both English and Japanese too if you are bilingual.
