What am I up to NOW?

Thanks for stopping by !If you are new here, here is a bit about myself:

Originally from Brazil, I'm a composer, arranger, producer, singer, and instrumentalist living in the US since 1997. Hailing from a family of professional musicians, I never worked a job outside the music industry in my life. Right now I live in Chicago with my fantastic spouse and our adorable toddler. My interests are broad and my hobby is learning. I'm passionate music as a tool for connection, empowerment, social change, and communication. Hoping you'll find some inspiration around here.

Currently working on a seriously huge score.  A wind ensemble piece for the University of Maryland.  A really big undertaking and challenge that I feel super excited about: .:

The rite of spring is a ballet composed by Igor Stravinsky and first performed in 1913. It is a story based on a pagan ritual in which a young maiden girl is sacrificed to the god of spring. In the 1913 ballet, she dances herself to death. However, MULTIVERSE, Another Rite of Spring explores a version of the story in an alternate dimension, where a similar ritual takes place simultaneously but with different outcomes and perspectives.   Experienced and seen through the eyes of the sacrificed maiden, who lives in a completely different reality than her other counterpart. Who is this girl? Where is she? Will she dance herself to death? The answers to these questions are all in the music: MULTIVERSE: Another Rite of Spring will premiere in November 2023. Stay tuned! 

 Thanks for stopping by !
