This generation will mostly be used to cast for Hontou?'C-ute (H?'C; the group that dubs the C-ute concerts). So, auditioning with a C-ute song is a plus. However, I might have some people help form another group (to dub another H!P group's concert[s]), if we get enough auditions.
Most important: Just because I am having auditions for a specific group, that does not mean that you may go about and modify your voice for a specific role, whatever. The modifying your voice is addressed in the FAQ's-thing, so be sure to read it [all]!!

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBKPNRAf6gM"]YouTube- Hontou?C-ute - A H?C Generation 4 Auditions OPEN[/ame]
Hontou?Concerto is basically an online singing organization that is dedicated to fandubbing the songs within the Hello!Project concerts. There is a slim chance that this will form into a usual online singing organization [that fandubs the regular, full songs], unless the Members and the people that watch like this enough to do so.
Also, there will be a lot of singers required, since H!P has so many units and members, so there will be a high chance that those that get in will have more than one person, when it comes to the Projects.
Auditions are allowed at all times, unless there is a current Project occurring at the time--if so, then the auditions will not be reviewed until the Project is complete. Auditions will pretty much all be accepted, the reason stated earlier, unless it is apparent that you will not participate properly.
You aren't required to be a professional and/or talented in singing, but I don't want anybody to participate half-heatedly!
To Audition, simply do either of the Following::
- Make a video response to the video above;
- send an audition to firstname.lastname@example.org
..::QUESTIONS & ANSWERS::..
A: Groupdubs of the concert-version of the songs within H!P concerts.
A: 'cause the concerts are full of so much energy that they appear even more lovely than the Studio-recordings of the song.
Q: Can/May I audition??
A: Duh. What part of this freakin' thing said else-wise?! (This could be taken rudely; it is meant to be sarcastic, with neutral feelings!)
Q: What do I audition with?
A: An example of you singing in the voice you usually sing with. (AKA: Please don't try to sound like a current/specific H!P member... It's irritating on how it mostly only improves little to your actual voice, etc.)
Q: Is there any order the concerts will be in?
A: Not really. First, we performed the EGGS' 2008 STEP Concert, but we are splitting-into groups that will dub the other groups (MM, Berryz!, C-ute). MM is pretty much just going to go in order of smaller-to-larger (in a sense; Michi forgot the earlier concerts~), so the more recent concerts are being dubbed, first; we have a shortage on members and waiting to get more-and-more members will take way too long.
Q: What happens when we're assigned to more than one person?
A: Well, it'd probably be easier to have you use a different voice for each different person, with the largest-one using your normal voice. However, you can always decide to not alter your voice at all. And if your roles are in different groups (such as being casted as Risa from MM and casted as Kanna in C-ute), you are to use your normal voice. You may also ask to not be given two-or-more roles~ Oh! THIS DOES NOT MEAN TO USE SOMETHING TO CHANGE YOUR PITCH (such as Audacity's "Change Pitch..." tool!)--think of it similar to Voice Acting and do it naturally~ <3
Q: What about the joint concerts (such as Wonderful Hearts), when we're in more than one group?
A: You will still maintain your role(s). You may choose to alter one of the voices, but one (the largest-role would be wiser) will need to remain your normal voice. But you may use your normal voice, for whenever that role is not with another. (This seems confusing; just ask for a better explanation. XD)
Q: What about soloist's concerts??
A: They will be dubbed later, after a certain member deserves to be a Soloist--I won't just hand-out roles. But for roles like Nacchi and G. Maki (both former-Morning Musume members), they will probably be the same member as the Soloist and MM Member.
Q: When is the next Project done with? (I want to Audition!)
A: That's answered on the User Page (YT)--along with the list of Members will be Current, Past, and Future Projects; and after units are established, the Members will be listed under those instead. But if you want to be ready right-away (AKA: Be casted as-soon-as-possible), be sure to audition now. But, if, you decide to not stay; TELL ME. I WILL NOT TRUST YOU (for any sort of future projects together, etc.), IF YOU DO NOT TELL ME. DON'T THINK TELLING ME YOU AREN'T STAYING WILL MAKE ME UPSET/SAD--IT WILL MAKE ME HAPPY, AS OPPOSED TO NOT HAVING A CLUE WHERE YOU WENT AND HAVE THE TROUBLE OF RE-CASTING YOU TOO LATE!!
Q: How will we know what parts we sing?
A: Color-coded lyrics. I have a site (http://hontou-concerto.webs.com/) in case you aren't able to read the .doc files, etc., so it'll be easy. =3
Q: How do you make the Karaoke/Instrumentals [when there is none released to the Public]???
A: I make self-made instrumentals using Audacity. They can work nicely, but usually still are made of FAIL, while some are impossible. I work with mixing the self-made with the original, etc. (AKA: I'm not too sure... I just do it. XD)
Q: Where do you get the videos?
A: I get them online--Hello!Project
