心情溶剂 The Dream Composition Songwriting Competition, was created by a group of passionate and like-minded individuals from NUS King Edward VII Hall (KEVII) in 1998 to provide a channel for students in Singapore and Malaysia to showcase their songwriting talents. In an environment that lacks sufficient channels for songwriting, many students from various music schools, secondary schools and tertiary institutions in the region have seized the opportunity to submit and perform their original compositions.
With the aim of organising a professional songwriting competition, 心情溶剂 The Dream Composition has established long-term working partnership with well-known publishing house, The Touch Music and music company, Ocean Butterflies Music. Every year, Ocean Butterflies Music supports our competition by providing us with professional and renowned judges who play an important role in the selection of entries during the Preliminary Round and the selection of the final winners during the Grand Final.
For the past 20 years, 心情溶剂 The Dream Composition has succeeded in providing a platform for many talented youths to tell their stories through performing their original compositions. We are proud to be the first and only songwriting competition organised by NUS and one of the largest-scaled bilingual songwriting competition in Singapore since we added the English category last year. 心情溶剂 The Dream Composition would not have come so far without the generous help of our collaborating sponsors, partners and supporters.
Moving into the 21st year, 心情溶剂 The Dream Composition will continue to build on the foundations and resounding success achieved in the past, and aim to expand its reach to more talents and a wider pool of audience in the region. To aspiring songwriters, this is an opportunity to be seized. Showcase your dream composition and tell your story now! Submit your entries now to be part of the next generation of composers!
