Abstract: We present Song Prompter, a software system that acts as a performance assistant by showing horizontally scrolling lyrics and chords in a graphical user interface, together with an audio accompaniment consisting of bass and MIDI drums. Both alignment and accompaniment are automatically calculated from the original song recording. A song outline displays the song structure, including names and positions of sections for easy overview and navigation. Song Prompter enables users to sing and play live along the timeline of an original song, without having to memorize lyrics and chords or turning pages. Chord labels, and bass and audio playback can be transposed to a different key, and the playback speed can be changed.

– a short jingle with the Japanese title of this paper as lyrics can be heard here [YouTube].
