Thiago dos Santos on SoundBetter

I play with several musicians and groups in São Paulo's underground music scene, always exploring differents sounds, styles and concepts.

In my studies and performances with the acoustic and eletric bass, I search for the beauty and clarity of the sound, exploring what the instrument can offer in its various forms and possibilities ( with bow or pizzicato on the acoustic bass, or pick, slap and other tecnhiques on the eletric). I'm always searching for the best way to use my instruments and recording equipments.
The track I've uploaded are composed by parts of three different songs. The first is Le Voyage Après la Mort from The Death Particle, a client from Soundbetter. The bass starts aswering the piano's phrases, without losing the conection with the drum. The second song is Notícias do Fim do Mundo, from Nã, a band from São Paulo that I am the bass player. You can hear that the bass, the guitar and the drum form a kind of conversation under one little theme. Then, the bass splits in two lines, one low, one higher, creating another melodic voices under the principal voice. The last example is Triz, from the same band Nã. Here two bass lines were recorded in the entire track. One gives the pulse with pizzicato, the other walk together with the voice with a timbre more like to a cello, in the middle range of the instrument. The three examples show how the bass can give more life to the music, without losing it's properly characterisct of being the foundation of the songs.
(Both bands you find on Spotify!)

    Third time working with Thiago, and he's delivered great sounding bass lines each time. He's able to get a feel for the track and really add to the foundations of it, both bow and pizzicato style. Highly recommended.
