Globe Live team up with Elements Music Camp to take OPM to global stage


Globe Live is known for producing a series of  events like musical stage show and talent search, they also broadcast the event and the behind the scene in a reality show format via Youtube and Facebook, sometimes they showcase the show for free so that everyone can have access to musical stage shows.  This year, Globe Live has teamed up with Elements Music Camp, a big workshop and seminar camp for unsigned or published indie artist who want to train more about singing, performing on stage and also polish their skills in writing songs.
Artist that attended the previous Elements Music Camp ( 2 years ago, I think) are now a big name in the music and entertainment industry. At the launch event, they showcased the talent of  Reese Lansangan and Clara Benin, who are alumni of the previous music camp. Also mentioned Ben&Ben band and the young indie music composer Bullet Dumas was also from the previous music camp.

Elements Music Camp is a 5 day training focusing on three aspects: technical, creative and business with the mentors belonging to the top tiers of the industry. The mentors talked about a wide range of topics including Philippine music history, music theory, lyric writing and musical arrangement


Ryan Cayabyab, one of the founder of Elements Music Camp shared to us that the Filipino music or OPM (Original Pilipino Music) is very successful here in our country, but the challenge is that how will they bring our Filipino music to a global stage. 

It means that the challenge of Elements Music Camp now is that they will be searching 10 lucky indie artist that will be under their program and training and will work with the best of the world's music producers and also our very own Filipino producers. Imagine... A Pinoy and Grammy award winning producer will work together to bring a new sound, a new music that will be performed and carried by our talented Filipino artist under Elements Music Camp.

Joe Caliro, Globe Senior Advisor for Creative Marketing and Multi Media Businesses said that "The Philippines is full of musical talents and we should discover and prepare them globally. The world has become smaller because of the internet. Music distribution has evolved from record bars to online music streaming distribution such as Spotify and Youtube, this is where Globe comes in"

Joe Caliro revealed that the music camp will has invited top award winning international record producers, they will be here together with our local mentors and they will be teaching the lucky selected participant who passed  the audition.

Bernard "Harv" Harvey who's produced tracks for Justin Bieber; Bassie Blue Hamilton who worked with Usher, Justin Bieber and Bruno Mars; Steve Lillywhite who's produced for U2 and Dave Matthew Band; Def Jam Records SVP Head of A&R Ernest Clark, who has produced for Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, John Legend, and Justin Bieber; EDM pioneer Ferry Corsten, who has worked with Benny Benassi, DJ Tiesto and Armin van Buuren. All of the 5 international record producers will be here together with our local -- Jimmy Antiporda, Jungee Marceo, Jay Durias, Jonathan Manalo, Thyro Alfaro and also with Elements Music Camp veteran mentors - Ebe Dancel, Gabby Alipe, Qust, Thyro Alfaro and Audie Gemora. 


To kick off the 2018 Elements Music Camp, they also produced a reunion concert this July 21 at the UP Theater, featuring the graduates of the previous music camp and also the veteran mentors.Joe Caliro said that the concert will be performed up to more than 30 artist. 


Globe Live will help put up  the 10 fresh songs on Spotify, performed by the selected 10 artist who went under the training and coaching by mentors and international producers of Elements Music Camp. The challenge will start here as they need our support to listen and vote for the music so that the songs will be up on the trended top of Spotify.

Ryan Cayabyab also mentioned that previous participants of their Elements Music Camp are still allowed to join, but they will still need to apply and enter the audition.
