NEWVIEW CYPHER #Music
NEWVIEW CYPHER is a community activity where creative expressions of all genres are expressed in a freestyle xR style. NEWVIEW #Music will explore the new possibilities of AR x MUSIC with YOASOBI, a unit that turns novels into music. Until now, it has been common for official music videos to be released as unique works to better convey the song’s worldview to the listeners. With this community activity, we aim to create a new AR music video culture in the form of UGC (User Generated Content) as a new possibility for music expression and experience.
This is a 44-second music cut out for NEWVIEW CYPHER #Music from YOASOBI’s “Yoru ni Kakeru”. The use of downloaded music outside the application work is prohibited. Also, no other music will be accepted for submission.
Sample AR music video for the song “Yoru ni Kakeru”
The following two pieces are reference pieces for the “Running in the Night” AR music video created by official STYLY artists.
Take a look at these works and create your own!
▶ Experience in AR
*Currently, users can only try the iOS version. The Android version is in the works!
Here are a variety of assets created to match the worldview of this project. Lyrics that appear in time with the music, frames that are fixed to a specific position on the screen, filters that dramatically change the work’s impression, and more than 30 different effects and assets to match the work! (More to come!)

Let’s actually make it
01. Arrange the direction of the song, lyrics, frame, and effect
Go to ‘STYLY STUDIO’ and select an AR template to create a ‘scene’ (a scene is a workspace in STYLY). Once your scene is displayed, first open the asset selection screen from the menu in the screen’s top-left corner. From this screen, you can summon various assets. Press the button labeled “Curated” on the asset selection screen and select “NEWVIEW CYPHER Music” to display only those assets created for this contest. Select the music, lyrics, and staging of your choice, determine the various parameters, and place them in the scene. Parameters other than textures can be adjusted again in the sequencer.
02. Place the sequencer and adjust the various performances
Once the Sequencer (Sequencer.v01.01) has been placed in your scene, you can adjust the display timing of the assets placed in 01 by moving the bar with the mouse or by setting values directly. Depending on the asset, the “Color”, “Size”, and “Speed” of the particle can also be customized by clicking on the thumbnail. Try customizing them to match your image and placing them in your scene. Placed assets can be moved freely, and their orientation and size can be freely manipulated.
When the scene is complete, publish it!
Once you’ve placed your assets and completed the scene you’ve imagined, it’s time to publish. Click the Publish button on the Earth icon in the menu at the top left of the screen to take a thumbnail image of your image of the screen you’re currently viewing on your computer. Enter your information in the information entry tab that appears on the right side of the screen. After entering all the information, press the Publish button to complete your work.
View the completed scene on your smartphone AR
Open STYLY in your PC browser and click on the scene in the STYLY GALLERY to view it in AR. When the special QR code is displayed, scan the code with your smartphone that has STYLY Mobile app installed.

About NEWVIEW CYPHER
NEWVIEW CYPHER is a community activity where creative expressions of all genres are expressed in a freestyle xR style. Like a hip-hop cypher, artists and creators from each genre gather and present their works to each other. Through mutual exchange and study, the artists and creators evaluate and praise each other’s highly original styles. Through this exchange and study, we will develop xR expression in each genre. As a culmination of the activities, an event “Open Cypher” will be held where participating artists/creators will make public presentations of their works, and the best works will be selected. Unlike the awards, there will be no jury, and participants’ votes will decide the best works. There will also be an open call for entries, and the works will be introduced at the event and presented with awards.
An opening event will be held to introduce the activities of NEWVIEW CYPHER and a simple workshop.
Friday, August 28, 2020, 19:30-21:00
