Life In Music: A Benefit Gig

A great prod team, an awesome lineup, and a laudable cause. What more can you ask for?

Thursday night was Life in Music night at Route as Docdef Productions and Life in Music PH brought together ten acts (yes, TEN ACTS) in one stage. With  Amplify.ph as one of the media partners, I got the chance to cover the gig along with two of my co-interns (yay for internship! :3 ). (more…)

This is what students really need to hear:

First, you need to know right now that I care about you. In fact, I care about you more than you may care about yourself.  And I care not just about your grades or your test scores, but about you as a person. And, because I care, I need to be honest with you. Do I have permission to be…

On the Art of Life, and a Life of [/for] Art

Most of the past semester had been preparation for what is to come during my last year in college. Nonetheless, I can say it had been a great academic year. A lot of times I was broken to bits, only to be forced to keep my pieces together just in time for the next requirement/project/event. It was a year of promises- both broken and kept; of accomplishments and shortcomings; of growing up and being a kid once more; of experiencing the happiest of happy, the saddest of sad, and the hurtest of hurt; of finding love in the most hopeless of places.

It was an intimate Valentine’s night at Craft Coffee Revolution – a budding place for gigs and other small gatherings around Katipunan.

DPC – We Are The Radio

After a year of “hibernation,” Danceplaycreate comes out with a new track representing an all-new sound for the group, stepping out of the band scene and going electronic. Tuned into “one frequency, one consciousness to produce something quite unique,” Eric Trono, Matthew Azada and Bryan Moya indulged their creativity within a platform that poses no limits for the music they can create.

Walrus Music Video (She’s Only Sixteen)

It was an early New Year’s Eve party for us at She’s Only Sixteen’s Walrus video shoot held last December 19-20, 2013. It was also my first time to be part of a music video shoot, it was really fun (not to mention technical and stuff, which I liked as well)! It made me realize I want to direct a music video someday. Hehe. Someday. 🙂
