More pa, Moira!

08/06/2018

Moira dela Torre is no one-hit wonder. After the phenomenal “Titibo-tibo,” she scored two more hits this year with “Malaya” and “Tagu-taguan.” Here’s some of her thoughts on creating music.

On composing: After any overflow of emotion, I take my phone out, write a phrase, and then work from there. I can’t really say which comes first—the melody or the lyrics because it really varies. But the more emotional, the easier to write.
On writer’s block: I read. I’m into novels and true stories, and also self-help books. Whenever I feel like I have nothing to give, I feed on the stories of great people I look up to—whether it be on paper or real life. And then I get back to writing again.
Favorite songs: Malaya,” was a season ender. I had spent years trying to piece things together myself and ended up more depressed than happy. “Malaya” was my freedom song—freedom from everything I can’t control and everyone I can’t have.
