Being someone who was born in Brazil, lives in Portugal, and holds a Spanish nationality, is perhaps what sparked my interest in cross-cultural artistic expression. In between these worlds I acquired broad experience in music, dance, video and ethnomusicology.
I graduated Berklee College of Music with a Profissional Music degree in guitar. I then enrolled in the master’s in Multimedia centered on Sound Design and Interactive Music. Using my musical background together with new found programming skills I developed various installations that enabled the public to help me create and perform music in real time. My Master’s thesis is about the implementation of interactive music systems in nightclubs.
On July 2012 I released my first music Album entitled “Take You To The Party”. The songs describe chronologically several moments in a girl’s night out. It doesn’t have a specific influence–most songs were uniquely witten in different countries during my travels. It includes a medley of singers whom I collaborated with and sounds ranging from lively acoustic instruments to dark electronic synths.
Now I’m getting a PhD at UTAustin that focuses on using body movements, that is dance, to control musical elements. This project goes under the name of Dance Jockey. On a daily basis, I create interactive art installations and performances that enable people to contribute and modify the art piece itself. They always have a strong sonic component and combine technologies to help create new modes of expression.
