Hi there, how are you doing?

More on that commented portfolio issue… :P Here we go with four tracks for a RPG videogame called HIVE. The first two are variations of the same theme, the one reserved for the “Rosebrooke” village; the later are short vignettes meant to be played when certain requirements are met, like “victory” or “death”. lol

I hope you like it. See ya!


Celebrating Death… In a Certain Way. :)

February 18, 2013 Leave a comment

Hi there, how are you all doing?

This week I want to share a song about death… But not necessarily in the dark sense of the word. After losing things in general during my lifetime–objects, places, people, love–I’m finally (at age of 32 lol) managing to realize (AND put into practice) a feeilng of… rebirth. I’m trying to see death as the end of a given cycle instead of just complaining about losing things… that actually were never mine since we don’t OWN things the way we may think we do.

‘Nuf said, here’s the song. :) I hope you like it.

See ya!

Carnaval. :)

Hi there, how are you doing?

Since we’re right in the middle of our Carnaval celebrations here in Brazil I just want to share my favorite samba-enredo (sambas composed for samba schools performances) ever: Foi um rio que passou em minha vida, by Paulinho da Viola. It was composed in 1969 but here we have a more recent video with Portela guys aside him. :)

See ya, have a nice week!

Commented Portfolio: A (Theatre) Play. (Tracks #6 & #7)

February 4, 2013 1 comment

Hi there, how have you been?

Getting on with our commented portfolio here we go with two tracks from a theatre play soundtrack.

In this work I needed something… fantastic, though concrete to some extent. In order to achieve that I decided to keep an acoustic, folk mood when it comes to instrumentation (nylon guitar, mandolin–both traditional Brazillian/Portuguese instruments) in one hand and a more vanguard harmony for the “surprising”, magic feeling in the other–se the major chord striking the final blow in “Não esperou o dia seguinte”.

Enjoy is, see ya next week!
