I can write your full arrangement from zero or just write the brass or string sections. If you need a pop/rock keyboard track, I can also record them for you.
Brazilian musician, producer and arranger.
Focused in arrangement for rhythmic section, brass and string section, I have also been playing with several music groups over the last 10 years, which I have directed the most of them.
Also specialized in kids voice's recording due the music director job at several Walt Disney's brazilian productions, where I have worked with over 200 different voice actors/singers in more than 25 TV shows.

Interview with Felipe Sushi
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: It was my own project entitled "2+1". With just 21yrs, I decided to record 2 arrangements and 1 composition. In one of them, I wrote for voice, 3 saxophones, 2 trumpets, 1 trombone and full rhythmic section including 2 percussions. In other song, I wrote also for a full band plus clarinet, flugel, flute and trombone. Also, during the quarantine, I recorded with 45 different musicians, in the same video, a classic samba that was televised on CNN Brasil.
