Unusual combinations that make pleasing sounds. Unusual combinations that make a tasty snack. The Combi World’s Biggest POPulation Song was an event that focused on the unusual and unexpected. It’s all about a humble biscuit, a snack, which became a music sensation. With creativity, uniqueness and imagination, the Combi music was born.
No need to buy expensive instruments to create fun party music, it is a matter of being creative with almost anything you have . . . even just your body. That concept was presented by Rebisco in a presscon held recently at URBN Bar & Kitchen in Bonifacio Global City last September 10. The launch of the Combi World’s Biggest POPulation Song! — made utilizing the multitude of video sound clips submitted and matched with a video that fully highlighted how unusual combinations can give an amazing result. Am I confusing you? Ok, let’s rewind to June 5.
Fans of Rebisco’s Combi crackers were invited to participate in the Combi World’s Biggest POPulation Song. From June 5 to July 25, 2015, people were encouraged to send in video sound clips that matched the weekly themes. These clips were intended to be used in an extraordinary song in which all clips would be combined! For each time period, the best clips were selected and rewarded with cool Humlan headphones from notable audio specialist Urbanears. In just over a month, more than 500 video sound clips had been received, comprising a wide range of interesting and creative sound bites from sources ranging from household items to animals and even body parts!
Back to September 10, the grand combi music was revealed and performed in a culminating event that included unusual fun games plus music by the Buganda Drumbeaters and popular electronica maven Kat DJ. Alodia Gosengfiao, a fixture in the local cosplay scene who is also known to effortlessly create quirky and eye-catching combinations of her own, was the host of the night.
The guests had loads of fun making noises with their bodies or guessing sound bytes as host Alodia facilitated the games. Just like Rebisco Combi, in which crackers, wafers and filling or cookies, wafers and filling are combined for a snack that is great-tasting, the event proves how unusual things can be combined for an amazing result.
