PHILPOP 2015 Judging

“The PhilPop Musicfest Foundation is an advocate of Filipino music that seeks to resound and preserve our vanishing, perhaps forgotten, musical gems, and empower Filipino songwriters whose music can inspire and motivate a nation.” -Philpop Facebook page

I was invited to be a judge in the 4th Philpop Festival, an offshoot of the famous MetroPop songwriting contest in the 70s and 80s. Now headed by then winner Ryan Cayabyab and business mogul Manny Pangilinan, this year’s hopefuls reached around 3,000 entries (so we were told).

In case you’re wondering how it goes…around 20 adjudicators (which is a fancy name for “judges”) are assigned to listen to 300 hundred songs. Someone would play an song/entry over a loudspeaker, then we would rate it between 1-5. Same rules apply to the different adjudicators covering other sets of 300.

There is just so much talent out there! I hope all the deserving folks who didn’t make it will get their share of attention someday.

Here are this year’s finalists:


TV5 Music Scores for 2015 Papal Visit

Project: 2015 Papal Visit, Special Coverage
Client: TV5
Type: Music Scores
Producer: Branden Milla

Since we’re dealing with a classical figure who is perhaps the biggest celebrity in religious circles, I decided to go the orchestral, feel-good route. The goal was to make it sound grand and movie-ish. “Heavenly” and “angelic” were guiding principles.

He Cares Foundation Celebration

Here’s to cap a blissful twelve months of tutoring, workshops and playing with the kids of Looban community in Quezon City. Kudos to all the volunteers and everyone who makes this project a success year after year after year!

The most rewarding thing has been seeing them improve in school and, of course, their smiles. Continue reading He Cares Foundation Celebration

Universidad de Zamboanga Grand Chorale

Recording the Universidad de Zamboanga Grand Chorale, rearranging their alma mater’s hymn and the regional song Zamboanga Hermosa are one of the highlights of the year. I’ve recorded plenty of choirs (including those that tour the globe) and I could say that UZGC is a world-class choir in the making. Continue reading Universidad de Zamboanga Grand Chorale

TV5 Unang Tikim Music Theme

Show: Unang Tikim
Network: TV5
Host: Jeremy Favia
Type: Music theme
Producer: Menans Perez
Music: Reev Robledo

Unang Tikim (First Taste), a gastronomic experience like no other, features exotic, healthy and delectable dishes. Insects, rodents or snakes, anyone? Hosted by celebrity chef Jeremy Favia.

Music notes: A quirky and somewhat jazzy-lounge electronic score (that’s a lot of adjectives!), the music is as eclectic as the food the program features. I threw in a lot of kitchen sounds to accentuate the beat, a sassy vocalist, an electric piano pattern, and finally a saxophone riff.
