A visit at Filscap's composer lecture series in DLSU


I learned about the composer lecture series of Filscap after they launched this College Songwriting contest last month, its a joined effort with Pioneer Insurance and collaboration with several universities in Manila to come up a song making lecture and contest that targets the youth. It's time to move on and remove the "hugot" thing, and invite everyone to make music that can inspire people and develop new breed of song writers and artist.
You can read more about the College Songwriting contest and lecture series here in my blog post at

I went to visit DLSU to visit the composer lecture series of FILSCAP. The lecture series was held inside the auditorium of Bro. Gonzales Building, its a new building of DLSU.

Guest song writer to do the lecture that night is Eraserheads' drummer and Sandwich frontman Raymund Marasigan.

Sayang, I just missed his lecture and talk.


But I was there in time for the Q and A with Raymund Marasigan and FILSCAP President and song writer Rico Blanco.

I've learned from Rico that this lecture series was inspired from those alternative class learning experience in Ateneo. He proposed to the FILSCAP team to form and organized a song writing workshop in every university and school. This is just a start, and in the future they will do this a regular thing.


Raymund: if a band member doesnt cooperate, sakit na sa ulo and di ka na happy, then you disband the band, look at Rico nag solo, (everyone laughed)

Rico: just like the movie ratatouille, everyone can cook, sa music, everyone can make song and music. Theres no supreme being with powers can only do it. Ikaw kaya mo din


Thanks to Rico Blanco and the members of FILCAP for organizing this lecture series. I hope there will be more after the #MoveOnLang campaign and song writing contest with Pioneer Insurance.

Also, I learned from Rico Blanco that they are finalizing the plans to set up a FILSCAP membership to students and song writers who are not yet established. This is a way of helping them to learn about the protection of their songs and the importance of royalty to song writers.

Don't forget to join the College song writing contest, last day of submission is on Oct 21, 2016
