Franco was announced to be Requiem Rising & Pinoytuner‘s last leg of the Aquostika series for 2012. Held at a decked out joint along Bali Lane, Blu Jaz Cafe once again, swayed to the rhythms of OPM & acoustic renditions as one of the revered Philippine artist infused reggae-influenced OPM alternative music to pinoys living in Singapore. Our group MASP was tasked to cover the event and it was futile not to when the artist you are covering has revolutionized the verve of OPM. The show’s turn-out was more than what was expected as the two-night gig sold-out weeks before the event. (more…)

Johnoy was a close friend back in college when we used to stay in the same dormitory, even way back before his first band “Bridge” was formed. That was why when he announced that Requiem Rising SG was bringing him here in Singapore, prepping-up for his coverage was a no brainer. We offered our group MASP for a full coverage and the cool guys of Requiem Rising approved without hesitation. The gig’s turn-out went pretty well that Requiem had to book another show at a different venue, which eventually went sold-out as well.  (more…)

Natalie Hiong is a Singaporean artist who opened for Marie Digby on her recent gig here in Singapore last 18 October 2012.

One of the pioneers that took the first step in reaching out to the rest of the world was Marie Digby. Her first highlights on YouTube was an acoustic rendition of Rihanna’s “Umbrella”, shot at what seemed to be inside a toilet.

When Street Noise Productions & Reconstrux Bookings announced that they were bringing Rivermaya here in Singapore, I did not hesitate to approach them for a coverage. It was an instinct that propelled me for an opportunity to shoot the guys who made a great influence in the pinoy alternative music scene. And so I presented my group, MASP (Making Arts in Singapore through Photography), to document the band’s activities here. The awesome guys of Street Noise & Reconstrux agreed without hesitation. You can view the video coverage through this link. (more…)

Julianne was one of the first acts to grace the third day of Baybeats 2011. Performing next to a Singaporean acoustic soloist at the Esplanade Concourse, she stunned the audiences of different nationalities with her acoustic jazz licks & soulful voice. It was sheer tremendous energy that kept bursting out from the Philippine artist that I almost dropped my gear while shuffling lenses. (more…)

Wolfgang was set to blow-up the Powerhouse on the final leg of Baybeats 2011. It was the third day of the 3-day event which fell on a Sunday which was a night of slumber for most of the working professionals in Singapore. When everyone else was taking heed to conserve energy to face the Monday blues, hundreds of Pinoy working professionals were sqeezing every ounce of their energy  chanting “Halik Ni Hudas”  as the Philippines’ most respected rock band warmed up backstage.
