Of Songs and Re-imaging… (Part 2)

Well, as promised… an update on my meeting with Viva earlier today regarding  Sarah’s new album.

I met up with Vincent del Rosario and presented 3 songs… we listened to them together in his office and he seemed to enjoy it a lot.  I presented songs which I felt was right for Sarah’s image…

He asked if I was interested in producing some of the songs in her album as well.  By producing, I mean overseeing and supervising the whole production of each designated song  assigned to me… from conception to creation to execution… from musical arrangement… instrument lay-in… to vocal recording… as well as the mixing and mastering process.  I accepted since I figured this wasn’t the first time I produced a song for Sarah…

I produced “SCQ Reload’s” theme song entitled, “Kilig Ako”… a song that I composed and produced for the ABS-CBN hit series and Viva Records a few years back which Sarah performed.  A teeny bopper-ish beat that fit the television program’s target market.

Listen to “Kilig Ako” (SCQ Reload’s Theme Song):

Vince and I decided that we should forget about all the “birit” material and “birit” singing that made her famous… “She’s proven that countless times already”, I told Vince.  “Tama na yun… We don’t need another album like that”.  We’ll be making the materials in the new album more friendly to those who want to actually sing along to the songs in it.  Heartfelt… refreshing… cool… light… young… easy to recall and definitely very commercial.  No “Celine Dion-ish” type songs anymore…!  We’re done with that.  Fans will be delightfully surprised on the direction Sarah’s new album will be taking.

I believe the songs I submitted will be just right for her.  There was even talk about me probably adding more songs to the album but we haven’t delved into that just yet.  Depends on the necessity of it, I guess.  A whole lot more was discussed during the meeting about the album and a “particular song” but I don’t think I’m at liberty to say until the ball gets rolling… but it’s definitely BIG.  I’ll be posting more about the album’s progress in the coming weeks as everything slowly comes together.

    wow, congratulations on this! listening to Sarah Geronimo is a delight, the talent is unquestionable. but copying Celine Dion was annoying, and undermined her potential and individuality. i’m glad they have this plan for her. the industry badly needs originals, don’t you think?

    Heya, Chuck!

    A secret project we’ve been working on can now be revealed. Check out this video we made. It’s a little something we call, Challenge of the Superduperfriends!

    Hey man! Thanks for the “congrats”! Yeah… I’m really excited to work on this album… yes, the industry definitely needs originals… we cannot allow ourselves to be just mere copycats of foreign acts.
    From the start I’ve really admired Sarah’s talent as a singer… I’ve seen how professional she is and her work ethic is remarkable.
    I’ve voice coached for her before at Amerasian Studios (Viva’s recording studio) and although I knew coming in that she was a really good kid… I didn’t expect to see so much humility. She’s taken in all her success quite well… knows how to carry herself.
    One of the major factors why I know I’ll be enjoying this project a lot. :)

    congratulations!!!!! I like it when you post about projects that you’ve been doing. I feel that we, the readers of your blog really get some hot insider info!
    It’s really nice. I got a question though, have you ever made an ethnic type song? One with windflutes and gongs and all that? I’d like to hear one.

    Grace nono was one of my fave singers. I think she’s the “enya” of the philippines.
    I put up a new post about Piaya on my blog! apparently some enterprising soul turned piaya into a streetfood. MMboy!!

    Hey Martin!
    Yes… I’ve made one “ethnic-techno” music which I created for Dita Sandico-Ong which she used for her visit to Paris’ “Fashion Week”.
    It was used by fashion models on the ramp. Mala Grace Nono nga na may konting electronica feel. Title is “Paru Paro”… (Dita Sandico-Ong’s creations are always butterfly-inspired eh… hence the song). Yeah… I’ll post it soon.

    Yummy piyaya article! Sounds inviting! In case you didn’t know, ilonggo ako (My family used to live in Bago City. We all moved to Bacolod na). Mahilig ako sa mga ganyang pagkain! :P

    Exactly the reason why I don’t listen to Sarah or Rachel or any product of these talent shows (no offense), but with your new material, I just might change my mind ^_^. I can’t deny she’s a talented singer but the Celine Dion/Mariah Carey routine is so tiring.

    Yeah… I hope you get to like the new direction the album will be taking… it should widen Sarah’s fan-base… :)
