The Scene Around: SYNC Music + Tech 2014

5/5/2014 8:09:30 AM

On April 27, musicians and music enthusiasts alike were treated by SPINNR indie to their event called SYNC: Music + Tech held during that hot Saturday afternoon at the Black Market in Makati City.

Yes, it was scorching hot that walking along the streets of Pasong Tamo for a second might cause you terrible sickness within the next few hours or so.

But that did not stop me anyway.

So I managed to register for the event itself, and braced myself for few hours of music and technology convergence.

Jimmy Ayson gave the welcome remarks at 4 pm, while Abby Borja tackled their brand, and Vida Sioson formally introduced the SPINNR’s independent music counterpart names SPINNR INDIE.

After the three corporate personnel took the podium and present themselves, talks from several artists and key music personnel such as Barbie Almalbis, Vin Dancel, and Francis Reyes took turns in sharing their knowledge in the music modernization thingy.

With Almalbis, a former Hungry Young Poets and Barbie’s Cradle vocalist, gracing the afternoon with her sets of “stompbox,” or the gadgets which guitarists used as “pedals.”

Mr. Mony Romana, Lee Grane and similarobjects also had their share of talks to numerous attendees.
Apparently, Grane, a singer/songwriter from the TV show The Voice, launched her single “Sana” during the event.

After the talk, dinner and drinks were already served as musicians Joee and I, Sinyma and similarobjects, delivered their performance acts to cap the night away.

Overall, it was a musically-packed full of information night for us. And not to mention, a perfect chillin' booze for the weekend. Well, I just wish there are lot of similar events. I mean, things like this. 'Cause we badly need it. Much support for the local underground scene.

(Post-script: shout outs to my blogger friends Clarenz Nixon, Axl Guinto, Sailor Star Catcher, Ron Mia and special thanks to Faudible for inviting me here.)
