I am a professional Brazilian Drummer / Percussionist / Body Percussionist / Producer and Mixer based in Sao Paulo Brazil. I own a Recording / Mixing Studio where I produced / recorded over 30 records and mixed about 8 records so far. Analog and Digital I have no fear to drive equipment over the top and no rules for what can be done.
Can provide a wide array of audio services but specialties are remote drum/percussion recording and mixing.
I have an extensive international carrier that includes playing in over 21 countries and at festivals such as Coachella (US), Montreal jazz Festival ( CA ), Roskilde ( DEN ), Womad ( UK ) and many many more.
Also have a big research in brazilian rhythms and percussion, with an enormous collection of instruments.
Use a hybrid setup for mixing that includes a Midas Venice F32, Neve, Distressor, DBX, Purple, RNC, API 2500, and many other hardware compressors, and hardware effects such as Roland Space Echo, Moog Delay, Custom Tube Spring Reverb, Delta Labs Effectron, Line 6 Echo Pro, and many more.
