Submissions Open for the 1st SCL Global Song-demic


SCL SongArts welcomes SCL members to join its first global collaboration exercise in songwriting for TV. In North America, most of our SCL members live in or near LA and NY. However, we also have members who live in Canada, Central & South America, Australasia, Europe, Asia and Africa. We would like to invite you to collaborate with another SCL member to create and produce an original song inspired by a television program of your choice.

Submit your application below and include ONE MP3 of a song that you feel represents your writing style (music and lyrics).

Submissions close at 11:59pm (U.S. Pacific Daylight Time) on Friday, May 22 and will not be considered after this time.

You will be required to provide ALL of the following with your submission:

  • Your Name
  • Email Address
  • Phone Number
  • Name of 2 or 3 TV shows which could inspire your writing
  • A musical genre you are comfortable writing, or one you’d like to try
  • A sample track of one of your original songs, lyrics and/or music
  • Preferred day(s) and time to write

You will need the following requirements to participate:

  • Active Internet
  • Webcam & microphone
  • Online conferencing software (e.g. Zoom, Skype, Facetime etc.)

All SCL members are invited to participate. Collaborations will be with other SCL members only. SCL SongArts will use the info you supply with your submission to pair you with a collaborator. The idea is to write with someone completely new to you.

Everyone who submits will be paired with a collaborator and notified on May 30, after which collaborators will have until 11:59pm (U.S. PDT) on June 19 (three weeks) to create, produce and send to the SongArts team, an original song.

The 1st Global Song-demic will culminate in a Zoom playback/listening session on June 27, when all the participants and their SCL friends and colleagues will be invited to hear the songs created during the program.

Our hope is to have representation from across the globe.
