Philippine Music — a general term for music in the Philippines, it does not necessarily entail a certain time or era. This keyword contributes to the project as an easier way to encapsulate the totality of music in the Philippines. Original Philippine Music — a general term that covers Philippine music in the ss, OPM is best-known for its three characteristics. First, it heavily relies on the Filipino language. Second, lyrical themes in OPM are very emphatic and relevant to the masses.
Third, OPM was considered as popular music of its day. The discrepancy between popular music and independent music will be tackled in Chapter II of this project. Although Filipino Hip-hop artists such as Francis M.
Contemporary Philippine Music — a general term that covers Philippine music in the s decade, and defining Contemporary Philippine Music is the core of this study. In a nutshell, Contemporary Philippine Music is defined by its use of new genres. This project will cover three of those genres, including Emo, Post-hardcore, and Post-rock. Contemporary Philippine Music is also known for its discriminate use of the English language.
Thus, Contemporary Philippine Music has made its way to international audiences. Contemporary Philippine Music will be examined further in Chapter II, along with its mentioned genres. Genre — style of music according to sound and music theory.
In this project, the following genres will be discussed: a. Punk — music that is characterized by its use of simple power-chords, deviant lyrics, and explicitly written against political powers. Grunge rock — born in Seattle, Grunge rock is music composed of subliminal lyrics containing depressive themes. It is best known for the use of fuzz, guitar distortion, and simple but heavy power-chords.
Alternative Rock — an offspring of Grunge rock, Alternative rock is mainly music that is less heavy compared to Grunge, and has a wider range of themes such as romance and coming of age. Post-hardcore — a relatively new genre, Post-hardcore is characterized by its heavy guitar riffs, use of ambient sound effects, and growling vocals.
Post-rock — is ambient music that makes use of synthesizers, guitar effects, and simple note and chord progressions. An important aspect of Post-rock is its focus on music rather than lyrics; more often than not, Post-rock music has no lyrics at all. Music is also considered popular due to its record sales and commercial success. Independent Music — is music that is produced in spite of the absence of a supporting major record label. Therefore, there is an outstanding notion that independent music is entitled to a wider range of creative freedom.
Orientalism — is a socio-literary theory by Edward Said that focuses on the configurations of power between East and West, or Orient and Occident. Globalization — is the thinning of national borders due to the growth of taransnational corporations. Cultures also mesh with each other, with one culture influencing the other.
Internet sources that took on fresh concepts such the genres of Contemporary Philippine Music and Independent Music were utilized. Rubrics for studying music This study uses a focused set of rubrics in observing the chosen music for corresponding decades. These rubrics are composed of: music genre, technical style, lyrical content, and social context. Music genres will be discussed in relation to their respective time frames.
Technical style will be analyzed through the lens of music theory and my personal knowledge. Primary data were obtained through personal observations, key informant interviews, and focus group discussions. Participant observation was conducted by the researcher. This included going to events that featured Contemporary Philippine Music bands, listening to Contemporary Philippine Music, dissecting Philippine music according to music theory, and differentiating Contemporary Philippine Music from other kinds of Philippine music.
Also, an in-depth analysis of the whole album conducted by me, as a co-producer, was used to describe the whole album proper. This helped describe the project on paper, according to the observation methods I have laid out see Appendix B for observation guide. Pre-prouduction covered songwriting and fixing arrangements per song. After pre-production, the drum tracks were recorded in Blueberri Jam Studios. Analog recording equipment will be used for these tracks.
Drum track recording was held on October This included the digital mixing and mastering of the said tracks in GarageBand, an Apple Incorporated audio editing software. The recording of these instruments is happened from October 29 to November An evaluation of the creative output was held along with the launch of the album in 6Underground, Ortigas on December 12, Plan for Data Analysis The data gathered from observations supplemented this project with insights and opinions to support the inferences of theories and concepts according to chapter.
Chapter II made use mainly of book sources and articles. Together, these data-gathering methods supported the study with different angles about how Contemporary Philippine Music operates. Organization of the Study This study is composed of five chapters. Chapter I serves as an introduction that gave a background to Contemporary Philippine Music. Chapter I, then, defines the scope and limitations of the project, and framed the theoretical framework and methodological procedures of the project.
Chapter I also includes a brief introduction to the two bands to be investigated upon by the project as examples of Contemporary Philippine Music artists — Typecast, and Urbandub. A timetable for the creative output was also included in Chapter I. Chapter II will focuses on a brief account of Philippine music history and how it led to Contemporary Philippine Music. While discussing the eras in Philippine music starting from the late s, its lyrics and themes are analyzed through the concept of hegemony.
This chapter covers two main forces of change in the s decade: prosumerism and the rise of the Internet. Along with these two concepts, the operation of Orientalism in the s music industry is also discussed.
Also, in order to dissect the concept, I decided to focus on two genres conceived in the movement. Emo and post-rock were defined through analyzing their respective flagship bands. An in-depth analysis of the creative output of this study is the gist of Chapter IV. An evaluation of the album and its launching event is written in the end of this chapter. It concludes the project by restating its objectives and enumerating the ways they were achieved.
Recommendations for further studies about Philippine music are noted to end the project. The project studies Philippine music history according to this methodology in order to pave way to the next chapter, which is a study of Contemporary Philippine Music. The Birth of OPM: ss Martial Law hegemony A number of articles on Philippine history literature were devoted to describe the suffocating domination of the ruling class over the subordinate class in the Martial Law era. Much can be said about Marcos and his hunger for power, but in order to understand the ideology he imposed, this study turned to a book he himself published: An Ideology for Filipinos.
This book, dated , Marcos states that ideology is necessary in order for a government to be successful. Such events included the temporary suspension of the writ of habeas corpus, arrest of opposition figures, imposing of curfew, excessive government corruption, military abuse, media censorship, and the crucial assassination of Benigno Aquino. Soon, the Filipino people will respond with revolution, and music would play a role in this class struggle.
The media sector of society was influential in the Martial Law era. Opinion leaders, composed of journalists and student activists, were adamant in criticizing the Marcos government. The next section discusses more aptly the role of this felt subordination in the making of Philippine music in the ss era. The song, written by Heber Bartolome and performed by his band Banyuihay, was about women being driven to prostitution by poverty.
These two artists will be the main points of discussion for this section, keeping in mind their large contribution to 43 Luis V. In order to contextualize the political and emotional unrest of musicians in the Martial Law era, it is important to identify the culture and ideology of the said time. Music, regarded as pieces of oral history,47 is a part of culture.
How this relationship of dominator and subordinated works is highly a demonstration of ideology. State Apparatus in the s Philippines. In knowing these two aspects of society, this study now aims to answer the question: How did music challenge Martial Law hegemony? This kind of influence that oral traditions have on national identity may be dated back to the epics and hymns of Filipino literature history.
However, music in the Martial Law creates a new dimension for this relationship. The medium has changed — music at that time was highly secular and was not disguised under the cloak of religion, unlike the mentioned epics.
Instead, it was a more direct and nationalistic approach to the emotions and created camaraderie among masses. Many people of his time believed that he was Philippine rock personified. Then, he went to Manila to study after his parents separated. It was released in , which was a turbulent time for Philippine politics. Its slow-paced half-time backbeat manifested a certain anguished atmosphere of losing hope.
Its words and harmony, simple yet powerful, made it an easy song to sing. Easy-listening songs like this allow the audience to participate more in terms of turning the song into an anthem. Chord structures were not complex; in short, this song was simple yet powerful. Both the technical and lyrical aspects of the song collaborate in order to drive the song to popularity and a shared sentiment for majority of the Filipinos under Martial Law.
It does not explicitly scream anger towards the Philippine government; rather it is simply an attempt to bring the masses together in hoping for better days. On the other hand, Freddie Aguilar took on a more power-ballad approach to his music.
Felipe de Leon Jr. It was a time of revolution, especially after the death of Ninoy Aquino, who fought for the opposition until The hegemony was a prevailing sense of subordination by the government and at the same time a call for revolutionary response and change. In this sense, music had answered the call through the power of protest.
Almost every footage of the People Power uses it; pertaining to its powerful message and influence in the Filipino people. More importantly, the masses identified with the meanings of the song, and somehow its collective power had brought people together in chanting its chorus in the People Power Revolution. Western influence The music of Juan de la Cruz band and most of their fellow artists was influenced by a movement in Western music called punk. Punk, more often than not, was the way musicians expressed their distaste for government.
Themes such as anarchy, radical change, and skepticism are observed as the usual concepts of punk music and lyrics. Their lyric-driven style of songwriting appealed to the emotional side of music. This allowed them to write more personal but nonetheless politicallygrounded lyrics. The combination of both results to the music of Freddie Agular, and the crooners of his time such as Heber Bartolome. Conclusion Truly, music has provided the People Power not necessarily with catalysts of revolution and change, but pegs and benchmarks for cooperation and identity.
Music, as a response to the overwhelming hegemony of the Martial Law era, had become a vehicle for upheavals against a long-term struggle. Original Philippine Music in the s This section focuses on Philippine music in the s. It is noticeable that more factors played roles in the formation of s Philippine music. In order to understand s OPM, this study will focus on three defining bands: Eraserheads for their youth-centric themes, Rivermaya for their romantic ballads, and Parokya ni Edgar for their affinity to Philippine culture, and contextualize their music in the study of s OPM.
Cory Aquino became president right after the Marcos regime ended; thus a new set of ideologies, were about to face the Filipino people. The hegemony was remodeled — the government gave more to the people, and in turn, the masses were less agitated. Ramos, before his presidency, was known for his diligence and fidelity. First was his attempt to amend the Constitution with its political and economic provisions. Second was a financial crisis caused by the implosion of Thai Baht.
The third and final event was the presidential elections, wherein Joseph Estrada was deemed his successor. The demise of his administration was attributed mostly to graft and corruption, with accusations sprouting from physical evidence regarding his ill-gotten wealth.
Armando Doronilla, a collection of essays entitled Between Fires, offers fifteen different outlooks on how to analyze the events that led to the fall of the Estrada administration. Macaranas, Democracy and Discipline: Fidel V. An identity crisis was starting to form in the midst of the Philippine nation. Juan de la Cruz and Freddie Aguilar set the tone of nationalism in the ss.
It was in doubt whether the continuity of these sentiments would last, due to the rise of music commercialism. What was underground and independent then, started to blip under the radar of major record labels. This freedom gave way for Philippine musicians to explore the identity of Philippine music. The s music scene gave birth to a new genre — Philippine hip-hop. The s paved the way for s in various ways. At the dawn of the s was commercial success. Major record labels reformed the Philippine music industry by acknowledging that there was talent in the underground scene, aside from the typical crooners with the likes of Ariel Rivera that they have signed.
The Philippine entertainment industry realized that there was an audience not only for Philippine music, but for Philippine alternative music in particular. The Philippine music industry did not see potential in the underground scene, until it occurred to them that the USA started to acknowledge the growing audiences of underground movements in their music industry.
With this happening, it meant that the mainstream audience began to be more accepting of underground acts. The Philippines also went through the same phenomenon, scouting for talents in the underground from bars such as Club Dredd, Red Rocks, and Mayrics. These bars were homes to eventual rising stars such as the Eraserheads. From being nationalistic, the lyrics of OPM transitioned from patriotic ideals to self-serving ideals and experiences. In turn, this affinity to the youth created a marketing phenomenon in the s.
Nonetheless, the commercial success of Philippine music allowed OPM to emerge in Philippine popular culture. This will be discussed further in the study of three defining bands of the s — Eraserheads, Rivermaya, and Parokya ni Edgar. Buendia named it after the David Lynch cult movie — the Eraserheads.
Their first recording was in , for ultraelectromagneticpop! Their music is reminiscent of the lifestyle of Philippine youth in the 90s. The ingenious mixture of alternative rock from Western influences and Filipino youth culture allowed the Eraserheads to somehow create their own sound.
It was one of the first few alternative songs with the rhyme and meter of a hip-hop song, but with the vocal melodies of a pop song. These two songs from the Eraserheads were somehow tied to the growing identity crisis of Filipino youth. The Eraserheads, as it seemed, were suggesting escapism as a solution to the problem. The Eraserheads ended their career in due to personal conflicts among themselves. In spite of this, their legendary music lives on.
Music critics still consider the Eraserheads as one of the most influential bands in Philippine music history. Rivermaya Rivermaya, on the other hand, was the more romantic counterpart of Eraserheads. This was done through the mass consumption of their music.
Having this in mind, Rivermaya pioneered melodic rock in Philippine music. Also, Rivermaya was relevant to the Philippine culture. These two characteristics were both facets of Philippine culture, made relevant by Rivermaya. It starts with a hook played in the classical piano. The notes from this hook are superb, due to its flawless progression. Parokya ni Edgar Unlike the former bands mentioned, Parokya ni Edgar was highly influenced by recent Philippine music.
The music of Parokya ni Edgar was oftentimes comic, but still deeply-rooted in the Philippine context and culture. Being deeply-rooted in the Philippine culture, the band Parokya ni Edgar had its way of citing certain Philippine traditions and contextualizing them into the 90s, thus making them relevant. With their guitars tuned to standard E, songs are easily catchy and vocally doable.
This made their music click. Also, their reliance on half-time and down-tempo beats instead of double-time up-tempo beats offered a relaxed, melody-centric kind of music. Rivermaya also wrote some of their songs in English. Their chord progressions and structures were loosely based on American songwriting. The tuning of their guitar to standard E made their songs heavily rely on standard, major chord progressions — a trend of Western pop music influence.
Also, the songwriting structures that Parokya ni Edgar undertook especially in their earlier years followed Western standards. A music sub-culture known as metal also grew in the 90s. Wolfgang, more commonly known as a cono-rock band, was highly likened to the Western metal band Metallica.
Wolfgang had in them a Western feel, with their chord progressions and scales loosely based on Western metal bands. A growing sub-genre of metal was also considered to begin in the 90s. In the Philippines, nu-metal was considered a growing force. This movement started with the birth of bands such as Greyhoundz, Slapshock, and ChicoScience now known as Chicosci.
These bands were acknowledged for mixing metal music and rap vocal styles. This style was known to begin in the U. Despite their success in breaking new music grounds, Greyhoundz, Slasphock, and ChicoScience had less commercial success as compared to the Eraserheads, Rivermaya, and Parokya ni Edgar due to their strong lyrics, indiscriminate use of vulgar language, and their hardcore culture.
As it was mentioned earlier, the rise of Philippine hip-hop also occurred in the s. Acts such as Francis Magalona, Andrew E. Although their rhymes, meters, and styles were highly influenced by Western artists, their music was still Filipino due to their language and themes. The musical styles and genres also continued throughout these decades.
It was out of this continuity that OPM was born into Philippine culture. On the other hand, it cannot be helped that foreign genres and styles have influenced Philippine musicians. Recapitulation Philippine music in the s and s somehow laid the groundwork for the new batch of musicians of the s.
As the next decade was ushering in, commercialism in music reached its height. Major record labels signed bands from the independent music scene, allowing them to garner more exposure. The Eraserheads, Rivermaya, and Parokya ni Edgar were three pillars of 90s music, each of them important to their own respect.
The Eraserheads was the voice of the Philippine youth of the 90s, Rivermaya was known for their talent in romantic ballads, and Parokya ni Edgar made humorous music mashed with elements of Philippine culture. To conclude, s OPM was characterized mainly by three aspects: simple, Westerninfluenced music, references to Philippine culture, and lyrics that identify with the Philippine masses.
The lyrics of 90s OPM were grounded on Philippine culture, as seen in their constant references to traditions and activities from the everyday Filipino lifestyles. Lastly, this combination allowed 90s Philippine music to garner commercial success due to how the masses were able to relate to it.
I chose the word contemporary with the help of Ms. Guevara, because of its implications of the present-time. By Contemporary Philippine Music, I mean Philippine music made in the s decade that are heavily inclined to foreign ideas through their discriminate use of the English language, musical techniques that prescribe to modern Western influences, and recognized by foreign audiences through contemporary means of communication.
The reason why I separated Contemporary Philippine Music from Original Philippine music was because there were certain distinct characteristics that both categories of Philippine music did not share. This chapter aims to discuss Contemporary Philippine Music in this order: first, by describing the political context of the s decade.
This entails an examination of the prosumerism trend in the s and how it affected the music industry. Then, this chapter will discuss how the Internet, when turned into a commodity in the s, also affected the music scene. After discussing factors that changed the music industry, this chapter will cite bands that have contributed to the Contemporary Philippine Music scene.
Thousands of people gathered to fight for justice as President Joseph Estrada was accused of graft and corruption. As his impeachment trials were held, the opposition found the hearings unfair and started the revolution. For example, RockEd Philippines, a nongovernment organization launched in , created a roster of musicians and artists to raise social awareness in their respective fields.
Their biggest annual event, Rock The Riles, is a seven-venue concert simultaneously happening in different Metro Rail Transit stations across Metro Manila. Also, warnings of climate change clouded the Philippines in the s decade. Reports from NASA69 have cited that the Philippines is one of the countries that would be most affected by climate change.
Despite these warnings, the government has failed to take precautionary measures, as seen in the amount of damage the country suffered in Radio stations opened their lines for SOS messages and relief operation updates. Jam Also, Jam The political climate of the s did not affect music as much as it did in the past decades. Rather, changes in the global market and the rise of the Internet were the two factors that altered the course of Philippine music. Prosumerism in the s In the s, professional devices were also easily made available to the masses.
A branch of consumerism, dubbed prosumerism by experts, conjoins the concept of the person as a consumer and a producer or professional at the same time. Here, the word is a blend of professional and consumer. Prosumers of this sort are famed for their enthusiasm for new products and their tolerance of flaws and, from the marketing point of view, have much in common with early adopters.
This usage is common among those selling video equipment, digital cameras, and similar goods and the examples below illustrate this sense. For example, YouTube videos are dominated by homemade videos from everyday consumers. This project focuses on how prosumerism has affected music-making in the s.
These stores have corresponding websites where any user can order these devices and have them shipped to their houses. In the Philippines, PhilMusic. Com, a message board open to all Internet users is a market where users can buy, sell, and trade their equipment.
Home recordings for music have been on the rise in the s decade. Typecast, a band from Laguna City, started out with one home-recorded album Last Time, also independently released and gained fame as their music was recognized in Manila.
Members of this sub-culture are film, music, art, and culture enthusiasts who appreciate works, or are the artists themselves, free from major record labels and corporations. Since then, indie bands and musicians have proven that they do not need help from multinational corporations and major record labels to make their music. Even internationallyrenowned bands severed their ties with major record labels due to suffocating deals and business matters getting out of hand.
An example of which was the Smashing Pumpkins, which released their sixth studio album Machina II: The Friends and Enemies of Modern Music for free, as a statement against their former record label. Another example was Trent Reznor, the founder of Nine Inch Nails, who also quit his major record label deal because of business matters. The same year, Radiohead followed with In Rainbows, also available for free downloading in their website. These contemporary marketing models were followed by many of their listeners and musicians alike.
Since recording devices, music instruments, and production tools were affordable and available to the everyday consumer, the indie scene peaked in the s. But this happened also because the Internet also offered musicians and listeners free reign over social networking. By , the Internet was made public.
Information dissemination was a staple characteristic of the Internet, making knowledge spread like wildfire in a small amount of time. Moreover, the Internet vastly improved in the social networking department over the past decade. Websites such as Friendster, Hipster, Facebook, and YouTube have allowed Internet users to connect with ease, making it possible for information to spread in great speed. In the music scene, MySpace. The band Typecast, for example, is best known for their MySpace.
Through uploading songs in MySpace. Other similar music-oriented sites are PureVolume. Despite its advantages, the Internet has also created problems for musicians. In the year , Metallica, an American rock band, sued Napster — a software that allowed Internet users to share music for free, authored by students.
Recently, the development of Torrent technology has raised piracy awareness among many major record labels and legal firms. Torrents, like P2P software, distribute free media. Unlike P2P software, though, torrents have better quality control through filtering dummy files and faster download speeds.
Globalization and Orientalism First of all, it is important to note that Orientalism is a theory that studies the relations between two geographical entities: the East and West. It is evident that majority of Philippine music is influenced by Western ideas. The music that came from this decade was dominated by punk rock acts such as Joey Pepe Smith.
Punk rock, in itself, is a Western subculture that focuses on nonconformity and going against the 75 Ibid. This relationship between Eastern and Western music — one being dominated by the other, has continued to present day. For example, the new subgenres and trends in Western music such as the indie scene, emotional, and experimental music are easily adopted by Philippine musicians. Taking a closer look into Contemporary Philippine Music, its choice of discriminately using the English language in itself is a strong manifestation of the domination of Western ideas.
In the context of this project, the influence that Western ideas has over the Orient is not limited to music. It carries over to the process of making music — such as ideas and themes and lyric writing, and the process of recording music. This influence also manifests itself through the effects of prosumerism and the Internet. As musicians, we believe that by default, music and recording equipment from the West are better than any of what we have in Asia.
Social networking and music sharing websites that are based in America are also favored over our very own, such as Odysseylive. The downside of this relationship is that it takes colonialism to a more subtle, contemporary level. Also, it shows dependence of musical thought on Western ideas, thus a deeper, intellectual sense of colonialism. On the upside, the Philippine music culture has been following the footsteps of its Western counterparts — so much so that it is a possible reason why Contemporary Philippine Music is recognized by Western audiences more easily today than in the past decades.
Thus, music from the Philippines was easily acceptable to a more international crowd. Examples of this phenomenon will be discussed in the following section. In effect, globalization, prosumerism, and the rise of the Internet have shaped the course of Philippine music as advantages for local musicians. Bands such as Itchyworms and Sugarfree were still hailed as chart-toppers, making Contemporary Philippine Music an alternative genre but important nonetheless.
Based on my own experience of watching them live, there was never a time when Ebe Dancel followed his lyrics and vocal melodies on record whenever he would play live. He would play around with what has been cast in stone, in turn making their live shows a more exciting experience.
They started as independent artists, making their way to the music industry. What made the Itchyworms special was their affinity to the Filipino youth. Amidst all of this, the Itchyworms showed their socially-relevant side in their album Noontime Show. That being said, they are the proprietors of Contemporary Philippine Music, and paved way to many other bands from all parts of the country to rise, such as Faspitch Cebu , Imbue No Kudos Olongapo , Rugis Lucena , and many more.
Urbandub Urbandub started as a reggae band in the early s as a reggae, beach music-based band. As their career progressed, Urbandub seemed to find their comfort zones in the emo genre, lyrically driven and with music guitar work and beats alike influenced by trending American emo bands such as Thursday. As they continued to spread their music online and live with the help of Sonic Boom Productions, they were discovered and appreciated by many listeners in the United States and around Asia.
In November , they were invited to play in Singapore, with Angulo Manila as their opening act. Urbandub also had the privilege to play in Baybeats, a music festival in Singapore, in Some time in , they are also slated to tour the United States along with Typecast. Typecast Typecast is an emo band from Laguna City. Once they found air time in Manila-based radio stations, they also started to upload their music on the Internet, and were shortly discovered by Sonic Boom Productions.
They are popularly known in the Internet as the pioneers of Myspace. Currently, Typecast is recording their fourth album — far away from their emo sound, they have focused on the post-hardcore subgenre, heavily influenced by Underoath, As I Lay Dying, Glassjaw, among others from the United States. In other parts of Asia, such trends are also helping expose talented bands.
Over the semestral break, I had the opportunity to meet A Vacant Affair, a post-hardcore band from Singapore, who visited Manila under the care of Sonic Boom Productions. They were linked from their former bands, BIT and Hansom, both regulars in variety shows and small-time high school gigs. Sharing the same interests, they decided to form Tonight We Sleep in December In July , they were named as the second band in the Mary Moon Productions roster, the first being Kuwago.
Mary Moon Productions is an independent group of events organizers catering to the music, theater, and film enthusiasts in the student-level target market. A few months after their addition to the roster, Tonight We Sleep started to record an album. Half of their drum tracks were recorded in Love One Another Studios, and the rest were recorded in the Garcia residence, including guitar tracks and vocals.
The three producers, Yuzon, Garcia, and Armovit, have had experience in dealing with major record labels in recordings. Their application of this knowledge has allowed Tonight We Sleep to get a pristine sound. Continuities and Discontinuities Despite the fact that OPM is a continuing force in this decade, this study maintains that Contemporary Philippine Music has taken over popular music.
The linguistics of musicians has transitioned from local to international as they chose to write songs with the English language. Also, the theme of Philippine culture is hardly seen in any of the bands mentioned in this chapter. Moreover, as these bands begin to create their own niche of contemporary artists, Philippine identity is lost in their works. On the other hand, the influence of Western music styles and genres continues.
Prosumerism made recording tools and music instruments available to the masses, thus creating more opportunities for musicians. The Internet, on the other hand, provided a new, wider audience for musicians. Although the political climate did not affect Philippine music in the s, global issues such as Millennium Development Goals offered avenues for musicians to be socially active.
Thus, Contemporary Philippine Music did not operate on the domination and subordination inside the country. Orientalism, a larger scale of hegemony, affected the growth of Philippine music through raising its standards. In the s, bands such as Urbandub and Typecast were chosen to tour the United States due to their Internet popularity in the Western audience. These bands were both proprietors of emotional, alternative music in the Philippines, and were models of Contemporary Philippine Music to a wide number of amateur bands.
A band inspired by these said musicians was Tonight We Sleep — independently raised, and currently working on their debut album. Owyong and I decided to make form the band before summer , as we shared the same enthusiasm for instrumental, ambient music. Gaining the affirmation of the rest of our band mates, we went on to writing three more songs, to be included in our debut album, Grace, and Dragging Her Wings. What makes post-rock different is its form — instead of going through the process of writing songs with lyrics, post-rock offers a brand of instrumental music with the qualities of ambient rock but without depending on lyrics.
As individuals, we listen to a wide range of music. Owyong, Cabayan, and Guerrero share the same enthusiasm for hardcore and metal music. De Quiros is influenced by piano rock bands such as Something Corporate, while Oreta listens mostly to electronic music from The Postal Service, Owl City, and similar acts. I consider the post-rock movement in Manila a part of Contemporary Philippine Music because of its recent activity.
That said, this chapter aims to first briefly discuss the history of post-rock from its Western roots up to the formation of its Asian counterparts. Then, it will describe the post-rock Simon Reynolds, untitled, TheWire. This subgenre was known for their excessive use of the fuzz guitar effect, making loud noises.
The record is considered as one of the greatest shoegaze albums ever written, as popular musicians nowadays such as Billy Corgan and the Smashing Pumpkins refer to the album as a major influence. Black Emperor introduced their music to the industry. By the similarities in the music of Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Talk Talk, and more recent post-rock bands such as Explosions in the Sky and This Will Destroy You, postrock is defined as music that is driven by ambience through the use of a wide range of effects, a larger sound stage determined by the number of instrumentalists depending on the needs of a band , a play on dynamics sometimes through synthesized textures or minimal guitar riffs, unorthodox songwriting or composition through minimal or no use of lyrics at all, and experimentalism through song structures, chord progressions, and time signatures.
Explosions in the Sky specializes in ambience through their ability to create minimal yet emotive guitar riffs accompanied by a drummer with a superb sense of dynamics. They wrote the album while stranded on tour, capturing the eight days of their struggle.
On the other hand, This Will Destroy You is a post-rock band that capitalizes on their use of guitar effects and beat samples. From Monument To Masses brings a different kind of post-rock to the scene as the band focuses on mathematical guitar riffs, with progressive drum beats and politicallythemed vocal samples.
In Japan, two important post-rock bands also formed in the decade. Toe is a postrock band that made a name for themselves through playing fluid, jazzy post-rock. Mono, on the other hand, is a Japanese post-rock band that plays post-rock with a tinge of classical music. As post-rock gained its ground in the s decade, the shoegaze scene was also alive in the underground. Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins also declared that his new upcoming album, entitled Kaleidoscope by Teargarden was going to be psychedelic,88 which is also a characteristic of some early shoegaze bands.
Sleepwalk Circus focuses their music on shoegaze, influenced by Smashing Pumpkins. Encounters With A Yeti, on the other hand, is the counterpart of Explosions in the Sky in Manila, due to their ambient music and excellent use of dynamics.
The pre-production stage of making the album helped us finalize guitar, bass, synth, and drum riffs altogether by recording all songs — not necessarily in optimized mix and master quality. This process allowed us, especially the producers, to get a better feel of the songs on record. Nonetheless, we made sure that the quality of the songs was not compromised, and open for scrutiny and inspection of minute details.
The pre-production started August 24, After which, an overnight session of recording all guitar, bass, and synth tracks for the three songs was held on August 30, in the Owyong residence See Figure 4. The pre-production recording session ended at August 31, What gave us problems in the pre-production phase was the mixing and mastering. Little did we know that the Korg Zero8 Mixer added a hiss effect to all of our tracks, making it hard for Owyong to mix and master the tracks altogether.
Equalizer settings were shifted from one variation to another, but the clarity we were looking for was hard to accomplish. A rule of thumb in recording, whether at home or in the studio, is garbage in garbage out — meaning if one tracks a noisy signal, no amount of tweaking and twitching of settings and effects is enough to morph the signal into a clear one. This was a major compromise in our pre-production. It is hard to deal with such problem in a small sound stage, especially a home recording.
Our guitar riffs seemed to be clashing with one another, and the sound stage was too tight to make a riff audible enough to become a main attraction. As we came out with these two tracks, we posted two second teasers on our MySpace and Facebook pages to attract supporters.
The fourth pre-production session was held on the 23rd of October. Guitar, bass, and synthesizer tracks were not recorded for this pre-production session because the composition of the said tracks was scheduled for the album proper itself. A song in an album that takes on a different treatment in terms of playing and experimenting is regarded as a studio song.
It is a song that maximizes the free reign of recording that is not captured by playing live, like for example, ambient sampling and more intricate usage of effect pedals and riffing. The total cost of our pre-production was PhP, which was for the drum tracks alone, considering that we recorded everything else in the Owyong and Sayson residences. Once again, we recorded drum tracks in Blueberri Jam Studios. Drum triggers are software plug-ins that capture the frequencies of snare drums, rack toms, floor toms, and bass drums and replace them with more articulate frequencies.
In the span of five hours, at around pm, we finished cleaning the drum tracks and started working on guitar tracks for Owyong and I. At around am of October 20, we decided to call it a day, finishing 30 percent of our guitar tracks for the album. In doing so, we were able to set a vision of what we wanted through our tracks, and the rest added their pieces to the puzzle accordingly.
Next in line was Argee Guerrero, who finished about 20 percent of his bass tracks on the night of October We decided that Oreta and de Quiros should record together for a tighter synthesizer section on the record. On the weekend of October 24, I recorded live samples of sounds, including the midnight rush in the Ortigas stretch outside my window, and scratching vinyl.
After which, Enzo Cabayan, our third guitarist, recorded 40 percent of his tracks on October With everything tracked except for vocal samples , we decided to give the album a rest before mixing and mastering. The vocal samples eventually came along in the mixing and mastering phase. The pre-production phase was of great help, making the album recording proper a smoother process. It seemed as though we encountered all of the technical difficulties in the preproduction. We knew what we wanted to do, and we had a better grasp of how to record an album from my home studio by spending time with it in the pre-production phase.
Guerrero, on the other hand, used a Fender Jazz Special. On a slightly embarassing note, I have memorized the lyrics to at least 5 of his songs. Retail therapy. No one is immuine to the phenomenon, at least in our office judging by the sheer amount of gadgets that come flowing in and out, spurned by the buying mob. I mean come on, X-mini speakers? I too used to be part of this all-consuming mob, but after having learnt my lesson with ill-fated devices Fuck you MediaGate their advances were easy to ignore.
Several reasons. Supporting local artists. You like their music? Buy the damn CD. Go to their concerts. Etc etc. I miss the days when music was also enjoyed as a physical medium. The thrill of getting a new cassette tape, unravelling the inlay card, listening to the music while aptly following on to the lyrics in tiny print. Shit today all you do is download the song and bam there it is. Album art yay, a small jpeg to replace the joy and fun of yesteryear. Hell I was close to buying a CD based on the looks of its packaging alone.
Without a doubt the highlight of the night was the re-imagined version of Alapaap. Only at the beginning of the final chorus is the beat unleashed, and the new melds with the old with phenomenal results. A reunion concert every year. Before this leads off on a tangent on the intelligence of your average YouTube commenter, the point I was about to make was that I was ok with this being the last.
No more live Eraserheads? Ok with me. Not necesarilly. But the thing is, they decided to end things on their terms. And I applaud the Eheads to no end for actually coming back and giving the people a proper swan song. Four words that carry so much meaning. As they stood at the front of the stage and took their final bow togther, I will openly admit that I teared up a little.
They were the Eraserheads. Ever since the last note was played I was already composing the paragraphs, so here goes. Then with the flames dancing he sat down and played with the band. Instead of doing the Filipino thing and going on a talk show to let all demons loose, he they chose to do it another way.
The first reunion concert was a disorganized mess. The concert was on a Saturday. It was by pure luck that I was listening to the radio on the Thursday of that week, where they announced that the concert was going to push through. When I got home I spent 2 hours on the ticketnet website getting my tickets. Not to sound like a douche, but Ely passing out in the first concert could be considered a good thing.
They got a second chance at their reunion concert. So this time there were no Zerg rushes to buy tickets even though I bought mine as soon as they were available, which was 2 months in advance.
