4 hot questions with Richard Poon

MYXPH.com: As evident from your last live chat on the MYX Website, there's good word going around that your big band music is "infecting" the young market, your thoughts on this?

Richard Poon:
Happy ako kasi that was really the focus. The standards talaga is for the mature market but to be able to make a real ripple in the younger generation, napakasaya ko

MYXPH.com: So you feel that you're on a mission to introduce this music to the kids?

Richard Poon: I heard once a writer said that Michael Buble has blurred the generation music lines of the youth and I love that. Sana dito sa Pilipinas pag sinabi nila na standards isipin nila na si Richard Poon ang nag-introduce ng big band music sa mga bata, I would love that.

MYXPH.com: Sabi nila that the last Chinese artist to make it big here in the Philippines was Jose Mari Chan but we at MYXPH.com would like to think that there were foreign Chinese artists that bridged the gap. Would you say that the Filipinos' fascination with Chinese artists like F4 gave you an advantage?

Richard Poon: I really believe that before ako mag standards - nahilig na ang mga filipino market sa mga chinovelas and koreanovelas, so me coming out mas na-accept ako kasi mukha daw akong koreano even if I'm pure Chinese

MYXPH.com: Sinabi mo na single ka ngayon. Big band music is sexy music. It's elegant and romantic coming from your own words. If you're going to be attached anytime soon, magbabago ba yung music mo? Kasi iba pag may inspiration?

Richard Poon: Sa tingin ko magbabago pero I think it's for the better kasi when you're in love naha-heighten yung senses mo. So even musically - the words as a composer, may may emhhasis pati na din yung melodies
