Abstract:
Chris Babida is a renowned musician, composer, arranger, music producer & music director who has been making tremendous contribution to the music industry in Hong Kong and Taiwan in the last 30 years. Born in Hong Kong in 1950 with a Filipino father and a Chinese mother, Babida has encountered all sorts of music from an early age: Jazz, night-club soft music, rock & roll, pop, classical and Chinese. Because of this unique multi-cultural background, and with a gifted musicianship, fast learning skill and hard work, Babida may have been regarded as an almighty composer who is able to cope with all sorts of stylistic, technical demands in the commercial-music field. This paper examine selected works taken from various compact discs of his such as "Stay away from Love", "Magic Power", "Beijing Pop", "Chris", etc, with the focus on the melody contour, melody style, relation between melody and harmony, relation between melody and timbre. This paper aims at revealing Babida's composition effort in accommodating the listener's musical expectation, and at arousing interests in the study of Hong Kong popular music.
