Music-y Things



GIGSchedNov

 Presenting my November to very early December gig schedule!!!!!!

It’s quite packed, I do realize, but sometimes we just have to hustleeee! Doing a couple of solo gigs this weekend (Saturday) and the next week, so hopefully you’d be able to catch me in one of my sets.

I want to promote my Nov 22 gig at LUNA COFFEE, BGC area because:

A) It’s happening this Saturday

B) It’s free

C) The #CityStories website will be launching

D) There will be an open mic jam after

I’ll be playing a one-hour set at around 9PM, and I’ll be doing lots of original songs I’ve never ever released online yet, so it’s going to be fun!!! Please do come if you can!!

I am GREATLY excited to release my “new” original song sometime next week (hopefully, if editing goes well!) It’s a live performance video I shot with my friends from Shutterpanda and BoxArt, of a song I wrote that largely speaks of our generation’s pop culture. Please watch out for it, but in the meantime, here’s a screenshot of what that performance will look like. Rooftop seshhhhh! AGHHH!!!!

 

BulletReeseJensen-Nov25

I’m doing this 50 minute solo gig with two awesome singer-songwriter friends this November 25 (Tues) at Route 196!

I’ve been a fan of Bullet Dumas since 2011, and if you’ve never heard any of his stuff, it’s high time you should. Trust me on this. Jensen Gomez is a new friend, but he has been playing in the airwaves for quite some time (I’m sure you’ve already heard his LSS-inducing stuff)! I hope you can come out to support us – it’s going to be an all-original set so if you can’t catch the gig I’m doing on the 22nd, this is a much better alternative haha!

How does one exactly go from idolizing Ebe Dancel to opening for Ebe Dancel in a span of a lifetime? I’m not sure how I got here, but I am beyond grateful. Please go. If the words “EBE DANCEL and THE MUSIC OF SUGARFREE” isn’t enough of a reason for you to go, then well, I have nothing for you haha.  My incredible singer-songwriter friend Jireh Calo is opening the show with me, so let’s goooooo!!!!! I’m nervous like F, and the pressure is mounting like a cat in heat (uh, bad comparison) but it’s going to be AWESOME.

Reese & Vica will be launching its second EP, Those Who Wander, this December 6 (next next Saturday), 8PM at Green Sun, Pasong Tamo Extension! Vica and I have been constantly talking about our concept and the nitty gritty design details of it all. It’s been 4 years  since we last released our first EP (Crossing Neverland), and we really want to make it something special and worth the purchase. I’m designing all the graphics + other bonus fun stuff related to the EP, so it’s a huge project for the both of us!

We’re producing ultra limited physical copies and we’re selling them on the night itself! Come early so you can secure your own tangible EP :D I guarantee it’s going to be so much better than the digital copy version haha!

That’s it for the music related stuff. I hope to see you in one of my / our shows (hihi) <3






The Next Time



Haiku Write

Shortest of the short update: I wrote my most popular haiku to date down on my new, pastel memo cube. If you’re curious and interested in reading my other haikus, go do a search on Twitter – type in ” @reeseypeasy haiku” & be sure to press the “all” tab. :) Or better yet, just order a Today’s Haiku zine from me. 100 pesos each, I ship worldwide! I’m running out of Volume 1 and about to move on to Volume 2, so email me if you want a copy :)

This website is about to undergo a clean-up of some sort, layout wise. Think of it as Reeseypeasy.com, volume 3. I’ve been having readability issues for so long due to the small, thin web font I’m using against the subtle, dotted background. It has made me grow less enthusiastic to post lengthy content because seeing the body text strains my eyes. I’m sure they’ve been straining yours too! So yup, I’ve redesigned a much simpler layout for the site, and I can’t wait for everything to be coded by one of my best(est) friends in the world, Sev.

Okay I’m done! <3 Hope you’re all doing well!

 

 


















The Gathering Season: Solo Exhibit by Reese Lansangan (Oct 4)



IG-Heima-ReeseLansangan-Poster

First of all, allow me to squeal for a moment.

THE GATHERING SEASON

I am so excited to announce that I’ll be holding my VERY FIRST SOLO EXHIBIT of mixed-media collages THIS WEEKEND!!! Saturday, October 4, 6PM onwards, at HEIMA BRIXTON, Kapitolyo, Pasig City!

Click here for the event page so you can JOIN it and invite yourselves!

The exhibit revolves mainly around the idea of collecting things / keeping personal collections. Here’s a blurb I wrote about the show:

“The Gathering Season” is an assemblage of mixed media pieces – “portraits” that reveal the faces of people through the things they choose to collect. Reese’s subjects range from casual collectors with passing fancies, to hardcore loyalists with unshakeable obsessiveness cultivated since childhood. 

Beyond examining our culture of consumption, the exhibit hopes to paint individual pictures of the people behind the objects – through their histories, habits, and motivations. Reese urges the public to reconsider their ideas of obsession and attachment, and offers a rationale: that beyond the itch to keep seemingly trivial things, is just the insatiable need to latch feeling and memory onto things that will outlive us. 

Yup.

Important points about my solo exhibit:

1) It is FREE. I am inviting EVERYONE to come drop by and say hi, or at least check out the work briefly! Everyone, as in youngins and parents and grandparents! Strangers and friends, readers and listeners, everyone! I’d love to meet you all! This event means so much to me because it’s the first time I’ll ever be showing my collages in a gallery set-up with FOOD and actual VIEWERS and stuff, so I’d love it if you’d be able to come out and support me! You’re not required to buy artwork to come! Just come!

2) I will be performing my original songs on my exhibit opening! Whether you’re a reader or a listener of my music, I hope it would help in convincing you to come if I told you that there will be lots of musical performances during the opening night. Good friends such as Rizza Cabrera + Seed Bunye and April Hernandez of The Sun Manager are both performing! I’m a huge fan of these girls so I know you’ll enjoy them just as much as I do. I’ll be performing my original songs at around 8:30 pm, I believe, so please come by if you want to hear free music as well as see ~art~! Other musical performances by MOONWLK and Zeon Gomez.

3) Bring your friends and anyone who might enjoy an absolutely fun night of art, music,  food, and beautiful things! IF you haven’t heard of Heima yet, it is a home and lifestyle store that is beautifully curated and all sorts of lovely. It is my honor to be showing my first collage show in their space. I’ve been a long-time admirer of their work and it’s so surreal that this is finally happening for me.

4) Use #thegatheringseason hashtag – if you’re posting about the event and if you feel like adding a hashtag, please use this so I can check your posts out! Tag me as well – I go by @reeseypeasy

I’ve prepared hard for this exhibit and to be honest, I am so nervous. I’m not sure who will come, how many will come, who will be interested in my work, that, and if people will actually like them – so many concerns and worries! But I’m throwing that all aside and am committed to just enjoy the night with all my family and friends who support me and what I do!
