Zerothreetwo Conversations: Interviews with the Creative Class

The goal of the podcast is to talk to the creative class, see how they live, and how they do their work. There is so much to learn from listening to creative people who have spent time in the trenches. We want to unveil the mystery that goes into creative work. This is particularly important for creatives who are starting out, I’m hoping this podcast can give people a peek inside the curtain.

Performing Like a Cyborg with Luigi Balazo of Sepia Times and The Sellout Club

Connecting with current artists is a by-product of producing Zerothreetwo Conversations. It’s refreshing to hear the perspective of artists who are currently playing. I don’t want to fall into the trap of featuring people who are my contemporaries. The ability to learn from the new crop of musicians and artists is valuable.

With that in mind, that’s how I approached this interview with Luigi Miguel Balazo. Luigi is half of the music group called Sepia Times, and is currently promoting his new music project called The Sellout Club. Amongst musical circles, they’ve been making waves and I jumped at the opportunity to talk music with him.

From Conducting a Jeepney to Tattooing Celebrities with Boots Brandon Pajaganas of Redeemed Tattoo

I first met Boots Brandon Pajaganas years ago. He used to invite our band, Rescue a Hero, to play music for skate events. Back in the day, I remember talking to Boots about his experience skating around Cebu. It’s been a while since I last saw Boots, but I was updated on his goingons through Facebook and Instagram.

In the past four years, Boots made a name for himself as a tattoo artist. I remember seeing posts of him winning tattoo competitions, getting tons of clients, and finally tattooing celebrities like Angelica Panganiban and Kitchie Nadal.

On Writing Songs on Stage with Vincent Eco

The first time I really got a chance to see Vincent Eco play live was during a Listening Room performance hosted 22 Tango Records. The experience was surreal. I couldn’t help myself and talked to the person beside me, “It’s so good… But so fucking depressing!” And I mean that in the most positive way possible. Good music along with good art has the ability to make you feel.

Funeral for a Prince with Mark Deutsch of Happy Garaje

If you aren’t familiar with Happy Garaje, they are a design/illustration studio comprised of husband and wife team, Mark Deutsch and Johanna Velasco. It was founded in 2009 and also includes associate artist Karina Cuizon who joined in 2015. They’ve received numerous awards and distinctions, notably the Gold Award from The Society of Illustrators in Los Angeles, inclusion in the list of 200 Best Illustrators Worldwide for the years 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 put together by the advertising index Luerzer’s Archive in Europe; and their work has been featured in notable publications such as Communication Arts, Semi-Permanent, Australia, BluPrint magazine, among others.

Urbandub’s First Gig in Manila with Alex “Phatboy” Lim

This episode was a real treat for me. From my perspective, Urbandub came out of nowhere. I went to college in Manila and lived in a dormitory. The dorm organized lots of parties. To me, it looked like they just showed up one day and performed one heckuva rock show. From then on, I was hooked. I watched them almost every time they played in my college.

A Life in the Business of Music with Alex “Phatboy” Lim

For now, I wanted to examine what happened in the past. After all, the past is what you learn today to benefit the future. With that in mind, I invited Alex “Phatboy” Lim to guest in the podcast. Having real experience managing a band and organizing concerts, he has plenty of stories to share.
