• Composer • Orchestrator • Arranger • Conductor • Specializing in Soundtracks
Hello, I'm Lucas Narciso, 26 years old. Composer and music producer, I started learning music when I was six years old and in the process I've learned to play flute, piano and acoustic guitar. I have a bachelor's degree as conductor since 2019 and I've been acting exclusively as music producer and arranger since then.
My job can help anyone who needs a song to be composed, edited and mixed and doens't matter if it's gonna be played live or if it's to record in a studio or even if it's for a movie or tv show.
It's more than eight years acting as a composer, arranger, conductor and alsomusic teacher. Actually, I work with my fiancé at our home studio with tools of composition and music production like:
- Sibelius: compose and arrange music in general | profissional sheet edition
- Studio One: production and music recording | mixing and master
- VSTs: Spitfire Orchestra, Swan Solo Bundle, Ample GUitar Collection, Arturia, SSD 5 are one of the virtual instruments I most use to produce songs of all genres and styles.
My fiancé, Pâmella Christina, 24 years old, is a singer and composer, with bachelor's
degree as a singer since 2020. Play instruments like flute, keyboard and electric guitar. Pâmella is a fundamental member for our job, acting like a singer to our songs.

Interview with Lucas Narciso
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: All projects delight me, and I am proud from the first to the last, even though I look back and see that I can still improve a lot, each project I did brought me to where I am today and also bring me the satisfaction of having met my expectations. of every client I've worked with.
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: In the soundtrack of a game, a short film, song for a book and in the ghost production of some artists in Brazil.
Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?
A: Yes, Maestro Daniel Paulo, one of my teachers and inspiration.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: Deliver quality music, with arrangements and production made with care and attention to every detail of the production.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Definitely the possibility to express feelings, images and even situations through music.
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: Thinking that it's all very practical. A 10-second song can be as complex and time-consuming to produce as a symphony.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: The need that this client has, what is the style reference, the deadline and the details involving rights to use and distribute the songs.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: A composition service, whether it's a pop song or an orchestral piece, demands a lot of creativity added to the composer's experience and musical knowledge, so understand that this service can take an hour or a month, so that you can get the most out of the ideas of this composer, so don't rush or put value in the service of a composer, only he knows how exhausting and laborious it can be to make a song.
Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?
A: My computer, a piano, an audio interface, a microphone and a reference earphone.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I first studied flute at the age of 6, and played as a hobby and other instruments such as guitar and piano. During adolescence I had a very technological phase linked to computers and sound equipment, which was fundamental for the work I do today. At the age of 18, I returned to work with an orchestra, this time as a conductor and music educator, as well as an orchestrator and arranger. I graduated in conducting in 2019 and since then I've been working with music production with my fiancée who has a bachelor's degree in singing.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: A hybrid of pop music, very present in my adolescence, traditional Christian music present throughout my life, classical music (romantic and contemporary) present in my training as a musician since my childhood and the soundtrack present at all times of my life.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: There is no specific artist, but I work always aiming to grow in my area (soundtrack) and be able to reach the big TV and cinema productions.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Always have a good arrangement in hand, this is essential so that in the final stages of production you will not suffer from correcting gaps and excesses during editing.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: There is no distinction, I do from pop music to orchestral music, although I always choose to work with acoustic instruments (although vst), rather than synthesized instruments.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: I work with all stages of the production of a song, from composition and arrangement to finalization, whether it's pop, soundtrack or classical, but my favorite part is orchestrating, a role I've played for over 8 years with a lot of love and affection.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: The influences from the soundtracks of movies, cartoons and games are very present in my music, whether it's an orchestral piece or a pop song. In addition to the influence of romantic and 20th century composers, present in my training as a conductor and also in my daily life, when listening to music.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My workflow starts with sibelius, a notation software I've been using for over 8 years, with the composition and arrangement of the music, thus generating a demo file with noteperformer and some other plugins. The second stage is done in Studio One, configuring the execution of virtual instruments of the most varied types for a realistic and humanized sound. The third stage, still in Studio One, consists of mixing and mastering with the instruments already rendered. There is still a fourth step, related to registration and documentation of the service done and later the publication of the songs or platforms when necessary.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: My home studio has a desktop computer with I7, 2 SSDs, 32gb of Ram and other components running a Hackintosh Mojave. In addition, I have a digital piano, guitar and flute, as well as microphones, audio interface, monitors and professional headphones so that I can meet the demand.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Maurice Ravel, Debussy, John Powell, Michael Giacchino, Alan Silvestre, John Williams and many others.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: The main focus of my work is the composition of musical themes and songs ranging from movies and videos, advertising campaigns and even songs for books.
