Hear My Song!

Learn how you can be a part of a collaborative composition!

From deep, deep within me, a song begins to grow.
My feelings fight to find a voice.
I sing because I have no choice.
Hear my song!

Dear reader, what are the feelings in you that “fight to find a voice?” On day 32 of Project 194, I wrote about the creation of this lyric and the genesis of an idea: what if I could get people all over the world to sing this tune and record themselves selfie-style on video while they did it? It would be amazing to edit those clips together to make a big round, a big sound, a grand composition or mosaic of sound and image.

Here’s your chance to be make your voice heard! Use your phone to record yourself (video or just audio) singing along with the tune I’ve posted. Sing it however it suits you to sing it, with whatever voice and feelings you have. I suggest you use headphones to hear the track and sing along with it, and that you hold your phone horizontally (landscape-style) rather than vertically (portrait-style) while you shoot. If you don’t like the way your video came out, you can always do it over, or do it multiple times in different locations when you’re in different moods. When you’ve got a version you like, email it to me at the email address listed under the “Contact” tab above. I’ve made a how-to video that offers a few more suggestions:

I’ll make a big composition out of the videos I receive, one that I’ll share here on the blog as it takes shape and then premiere as a live interactive event at the birthday concert on July 13. If you want, Instagram it to share it using the hashtags #project194 and #hearmysong. It would be even more amazing if you told your friends to do it too. Let’s make something together!

Here’s the tune:
