Splintr.com started in August 2006 and is the first and original online independent music channel here in the Philippines. The main motivation for us has always been the creation of a venue for local independent artists; a place where independence, individuality, and talent can thrive.
We knew we had a simple yet groundbreaking idea of how to give these artists a means to showcase their talent… something that could be accessed on demand. We wanted to capture the top-notch performances of these bands and keep the footage somewhere accessible for all to see and enjoy at their own leisure. We started by recording gigs and events using a professional team with quality equipment. One idea led to another, and we decided to produce exclusive live studio recordings. This led to the creation of Splintr Sessions.
We’ve come a long way, from our first shoot with Pinoy Rock icons Razorback on their 16th anniversary show at Gweilo’s Libis, and the groundbreaking Alive 2007 concert in Music Museum that featured Razorback and Wolfgang, all the way to our work on Splintr Sessions, which was a groundbreaking idea at the time.
Splintr Sessions pioneered the idea of an internet-based music channel here in the Philippines. We set a benchmark with our high quality, exclusive content.
Aside from shedding some light on some of the best that the local independent music scene has to offer, we also feature quality music from around the world. We were even responsible for bringing bands like Nine Inch Nails and Deftones to Manila.
We do not plan on resting on our laurels. We will always strive to bring you the best content imaginable. The newly revamped Splintr.com showcases some of the changes that we made in order to give fans new and exciting features: from our new blog and new video content, to a new Playlist section where viewers can make a playlist using the videos on our website. We make it a point that you will always find something interesting and new every time you visit the site.
Splintr.com is the perfect example of TV programming on the web. This is the new way to enjoy your music. Tune in, turn on, and drop out. Join us in the revolution. It wouldn’t be possible without you, after all.
To the clever ones, thank you for supporting SPLINTR.COM, the independent music scene, and what all of us stand for. To the rest of you..eat your beets!
