I was born in a small town in the north of Portugal called Montalegre but I went to Lisbon at an early age to study Jazz Guitar at Hot Club of Portugal. Now I live in Braga where I work from home as an Audio Engineer. I have also taken the Bachelor of Professional Studies in Music Production at Berklee College of Music.
One of the great things about having a home studio is regardless of age, a musician can still continue to write and explore new ways of creating music. Having just gone to my 40 year high school class reunion, one of the very first questions was, "Are you still writing and playing music" and much to my pleasure I was able to answer yes to both. My hopes are that with Falcon, that I can challenge myself to even further explore the potential of songwriting using such cutting edge software as this. Thank you to Pro Tools Expert and UVI for this opportunity. Enclosed is a picture of me reciting the lyrics to a new song I had written for my class reunion. It was received with a huge round of applause which was all the motivation I needed to assure that I should continue with my passion and dream, thank you.
I have been working as a sound engineer for over 25 years in the Jazz, Classical and Ethno World direction, based in Munich/Germany. I am a specialist for pure acoustic recordings. My clients f.e. are Prof. Peter-Michael Hamel - one of the famous german contemporary classical composers, the well-known world music band Embryo, the Japanese Schumann pianist Akemi Murakami.
I started to work with Pro Tools from version 7 on (today ProTools 12.5). Depending on the material, my mixing tools are analog gear, hardware inserts. For mobile recording my mixing work is complete "in the box".
