Group Creative Project: May I Sing With You
Project Creator: Auntie Strange (aka Ü Lee)
How it began: In Nov 2018, there were several referendum votes regarding the marriage rights/laws for same sex couples in Taiwan. When the result came out, it was a huge slap to basic human rights. I wrote this song a few days later hoping to transform my disappointment into a positive music video to re-educate people. In the mean time, I am hoping to gather creative and enthusiastic volunteers to join this group creation to provide comfort and show support to those who still feel terrible after the votes.
1. support same sex marriages
2. have one or more of below to contribute:
A. Stories you like to share with words, pictures, or videos which could include your real name or other name (could choose to stay anonymous as well)
B. Music (No need to be professional! Do need simple recording equipment and the ability to send and receive files online. It's a plus if you know how to follow a conductor!)
B1. Singing: (one of these would be plenty. more than one is welcomed, too)
Main melody in different languages
SATB (Bass is most wanted because I can't squeeze good low notes out)
B2. Instrumental parts (with sheet music)
Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Violin I & II, Viola, Cello, Double Bass
B3. Instrumental parts (with chord progression only, may need to improvise)
Piano, Double Bass(Jazz), Guitar, Drumkits
I used a Flamenco Palo that might be recognized. Other than that, I'm always eager to see what else people could come up with.
D. Others (after collecting all the information)
D1. Music and Video mixers and editors
Depending on the number of files we get, we may need to split the project into multiple parts
Director which may involve with the final edits
Sound/music engineer for the final edits and balances
Translators to help this group creation be known by more people
There's absolutely 0 money involved.
Any amount of participation will grant your name (could be anonymous as well) a place in the final version of music video.
You may feel satisfied because of your participation in a project that unites people from several countries
You may feel good about yourselves because of the ability to recognize and the effort to defend basic human rights
Gathering volunteers and collecting files until the end of Jan in 2019
Editing will start in Feb 2019
Publish the final version of this music video in social media by March 2019
