University of Batangas proudly launched the new official UB Jingle, “Rise and Stride”, as part of the 75th Founding Anniversary celebration. The festive “feels” of the new jingle is something that everyone, especially UBians of all ages can vibe into.
During one of the highlights of the 75 th founding Anniversary Celebration, the Virtual Cultural Show, a part of the new UB Jingle was presented to the UB Community. The UB Jazz Band took pride as they performed the new official UB jingle and the UB Dance Company grooved to the beat of the music.
Composed by Mr. Jaryl Renzo Decilos, the UBBC Junior Multimedia Designer, and an alumnus of The UB Chorale, shared that it took almost three months to produce the final output of the new UB Jingle. “If you’re going to look deeper into the meaning of the jingle, it tells a glimpse of UB’s humble beginnings and how it continues to achieve victories through time no matter what challenges the institution might face”, Decilos explained.
Moreover, the composer also added how he felt while doing the song and expressed his gratitude to the people who were with him throughout the process. “All throughout the process of making the song, from the conceptualization, to recording, up to the finalization of the output, I’ve always felt this kind of excitement. Aside from the fact that this song will represent UB’s momentous event, this is also the first song I composed that will be released. As an aspiring singer-songwriter, this is such an honor and a blessing for me. However, this is not just me that’s behind all of this. Big thanks to the UB Jazz Band for making a dream into a reality. And right now, I’m still amazed how the song evolved from the first time it was written compared to what it is now and how we are able to put all of the pieces together despite of our current situation”, Decilos shared.
In partnership with two radio stations, Air1 91.9 FM and 99.1 Spirit FM, the new jingle was officially launched through live simulcast last April 5, 2021, 2:00 PM. This was also the first time that the full version of the UB Jingle was heard ON AIR.
