Q

What does it feel like to know you and your music are known internationally?

I am not so sure if my reach is that expansive. "Internationally" is such a big word. But it feels great to know that someone out there, albeit hundreds of miles away, is discovering my work.

Q

Hello Sir Clementine,

First of all, I have a question about your song "The saddest sound". I hope that I am not being too intrusive, but I would like to know who you are refering to as your
"first friend given fragile beauty". I guess it is a pet you had but ... what sort of pet ?

And my second question is : would you consider travelling to Europe and touring there ?
Ok, that's far away from the Philippines but Paris is worth visiting ! :)

Much love from a faithful French fan, who keeps listening to TWIYO regularly and always enjoying it thoroughly :)

Franny

Hi Franny, you are absolutely right with your guess! Doro is his name, my pet cat who died in my hands due to terminal illness. The vet and I decided to put him down while I wait and listen until his last heartbeat.

Touring Europe is in my dream bucket list, so I really hope to make this happen sometime in the near future. Perhaps after I release a new album. I would love to see Paris!

Your faith in my music kindles my drive to produce more! Thank you so much!

i am just intrigued with the diversified music you had for the past few years and also me as a new wave fan and a musician, had greatly appreciated your works as well. just want to ask what are your influences?


Dragonfly Collector responded on 04/01/2016
A

I have a wide range of influences. From The Beatles to The Smiths, Folk to New Wave/Guitar Pop/Jangle and Indie Pop to Alternative Rock. Most of them have British origin. I seldom repeat my work and it's naturally for me to be dynamic and to try something different each time.

Hello, amazing music, I love it very much! Do you know, if anywhere are tabs of your songs? Especially 'Darkness Is My Candle', I cannot find any tabs for this beautiful song(


Dragonfly Collector responded on 04/01/2016
A

Glad you do! No tabs are available for this album and most of the lead guitars recorded are contributed by amazing sessionists like Kakoy Legazpi and Jonathan Ong. But I do plan to post chords on my site for each song.

How's your love life?

My love life is like a red, red, rose. Withered and flat against the pages of my favorite poetry book.

Q

Do you conduct workshops? or something like that? hehe and
What can you say about OPM's state? thanks more power


Dragonfly Collector responded on 07/12/2015
A

Someday I plan to host a songwriting and artist development workshop. Next year perhaps. I cringe every time I encounter the word OPM and whatever it stands for. I really think the usage is obsolete and no longer applicable in the general Philippine music scene. As usual, the independent scene is thriving with quality songwriting, performance, style and sensibility that the commercial scene clearly is lacking.

Q

What are your thoughts about guitar icon Carlos Santana?


Dragonfly Collector responded on 07/12/2015
A

I can't say much about him aside from being one of the greatest guitarist out there. I don't normally listen to Latin and African rhythms.
