I started in music very young, at nine I won my first electric guitar and the interest in Rock and some “different” sounds that later would discover to be coming from synthesizers has begun. I grew up strongly influenced by the International and Brazilian rock scene from the 80’s and 70’s, which led me to be a worshiper of distorted sounds produced by guitars, basses and synthesizers and all the range of textures that distortion can provide to any sound.

During my teenager phase, I studied music theory, after this period I became self-taught. I have always been interested in composition and arrangement, so I’ve worked as a guitar player and as a sequencer programmer for some of the underground bands of Rio rock scene, always focused in writing and extracting weird guitar textures sounds, in particular with a band called Sukhoi, where I could experience a much better projection after the link from a song on a TV show.

My Interest in mathematics and science led me into the path of engineering sciences, which was reflected in passion for sound engineering. By the end of the 90’s, when the technology became accessible, I started up my first home studio, producing music for the publishing and internet market as well as some work as a composer for new artists from small labels.

In the early 2000s I started to be absorbed by electronic music and other genres, spot on: D&B, hip hop, reggae, R&B and also experimental electroacoustic music field, which I had the opportunity to develop a collaborative work in regards of creating an unconventional musical writing for weird sounds produced by electric guitar.

In the ides of 2012, I co-founded with my very good buddy Alex Dub, the AFC project.

Currently, in the electronic music universe, I am strongly interested in any kind of music /sub-genres that use massive sampling techniques, synthesizers and distortion. I am also very keen to Indie Rock and Metal, a special highlight for sounds that use the Djent guitar technique.

A long time ago…

Diverted from this original route …

On this planet a “ship” came from a galaxy far, far away.

His only “passenger” was “incorporated” by a family of humans …

But the “extraterrestrial” never felt part of anything!

He listened to different things, spoke of things few understood…

There seemed to be no belonging!

He was always an outsider!

Until one day an old acoustic guitar with tuning problems appeared in this earthling home.

The “Extraterrestrial” began to handle this instrument and in a short time were inseparable friends.

By having to tune differently and more low frequency …

He began to pay attention to the bass lines.

One day his Terrain father gave him as a prize for passing in a contest for an important high school, a Bass…

And this Extraterrestrial won a friend and a name Alex Dub …

From that moment…

He made more friends, began to belong to something bigger (music) played in bands of rock, reggae, ska, accompanied the poet Chacal in the Sequelândia Digital Orchestra with friends Jj Aquino, Dj Mohammed Malok, co-founder of 2B and since 2012 have created together with his friend and brother Alex Rosa the Addictive Fuzz Conspiration …

Always trying to make your Bass sound different, strange, heavy and strong.
