Boboy Garovillo Of APO Hiking Society Says OPM is "Naghihingalo"! Do YOU Agree?



"Hindi patay ang OPM."

MYXph.com
is very lucky to have been granted an interview with APO Hiking Society member, Mr. Boboy Garovillo, wherein he got to share a few words with us regarding his thoughts on OPM, covers, revivals and radio.

"Yung pagka-nakakarinig ka nga yung mga covers na lang, tapos revivals and all of that, ang feeling mo parang naghihingalo," he honestly expressed. "Mahirap mamatay ang OPM kasi ang dami-daming banda diyan na gumagawa ng kanta. Ang daming grupo ang gumagawa ng kanta, hindi lang naririnig ng tao. So hindi mo masasabing namatay ang OPM. In a way, parang [ang] namatay [ay] yung radyo.

In addition, he also discussed to us his view on how television affects the present music industry, "Kasi dati, kung may kantang ginagawa, mga awitin, natutugtog sa radyo tapos umaabot sa iba't ibang lugar, umaabot sa mga probinsya dahil may kanya-kanyang silang mga radyo doon. Eh ngayon, nag-take over na yung television. So kung gumawa ka ng kanta, hindi importante yung kanta, [ang] importante ay yung video na kasama nun. So medyo limited na kaagad yung mga lumalabas na kanta na maririnig ng tao."

"So medyo "naghihingalo" in that sense kasi yung mga gumagawa parin ng mga awitin, yung mga songwriters, nandiyan parin [pero] hindi lang nakakalabas sa medium."

Do you agree with him? What do you think is the state of OPM? COMMENT BELOW!

    Dapat ihiwalay ng MYX ang ABS-CBN pagdating sa music, music channel eto eh, kung more on looks, cheesy, weepie, etc. and ch.2 dapat hindi ganun ang MYX, at kung nasa underground "daw" yung creative/composers ayon sa kanila e di patugtugin, wla naman sgurong mlaking gastos kung mgkaroon ng MYX Undergrond na more/less 2hrs, at dapat tanggalin ang "genre barrier" dahil kung maganda ang music kahit anong genre pa yan papakinggan yan.

    Actually you can't blame Filipinos that supports foreign music more because it's obvious that we cannot match their quality in terms of music (àbrutally frankly), If you compare it.
    1. International Solo Artists vs. OPM Solo Artists:
    >>>International Artist (has originality, identity, passion to music, and compositions. Broad in term of music/genre, balance between compositions and remakes)
    >>>OPM solo artist (Full of covers/remake/revivals, No identity, All of them ar

    There's no problem watching/ listening to Foreign music coz they're one of our OPM artists influences but lets not forget our own Artists / Bands I'm so sad when BAMBOO band disbanded, but we still have great OPM bands Urbandub, Slapshock, Parokya, Kamikazee, Chicosci and a lot more! OPM RULES! ROCK ON!

    for me i think hindi naghihingalo ang OPM. 'Coz we still have lots of artists and who still can do great OPM songs. composers who can compose songs with sense something meaningful... Marami lang talaga sigurong Pinoy ang mas tumatangkilik sa Foreign music Bakit? syempre IMPORTED. we Pinoys have a habit na sa lahat nang bagay pag imported tinatangkilik natin and that includes music whether we understand it or not.

    to be honest, maraming music lovers ang na didisappoint sa OPM ngayon.. gagawa ng album puro COVER? tapos yung iba isang studio album lima kanta? mag EFFORT para tangkilikin! I Do Believe may pag asang mabuhay ang OPM eh.. I Salute all the artists na nag eeffort like QUEST, GLOC9, SPONGECOLA, PAROKYA, KAMIKAZEE, KYLA, JEN MERCADO..
