I believe music has power.
The power to change, the power to move, the power to take someone out of his ordinary life and to give this person a new perspective of life. That's why I do music: to move people.
Not necessarily on dancing terms, but on the way to change their state of mind.
I am a Berlin-based pianist and composer, originally from Brazil - and I like to say this because Berlin changed my life.
I play simple melodies with a lot of heart and here I learned that heart and understanding need to come first.
The World is already a far too complicated place so we need to be able to understand and respect each other.
In every sense. This is a non-binary world, a non-binary society and we should actively fight for that, for the respect and understand between people. Rainbow flag here.
I was lucky that my track Sunday 23 appeared on the Project 12 series by Deutsche Grammophon.
About creating 'Sunday 23' he says: “I wrote this on a Sunday morning, on the 23rd of March – when autumn was appearing in São Paulo. Autumn there means spring in the northern hemisphere. There was this feeling of “every end is a beginning, too” – you know that feeling that lets you realize life as a cycle!?” Echoing neo-classical and film soundtracks, the music created by this Brazilian composer and pianist uses harmony progressions, ambient soundscapes and confrontational feelings to shift through styles in a fluid, emotional way. Sunday 23 is available on all the streaming services.
