During my Masters of Music in Studio Jazz Writing I worked at the University of Miami studio, recording and filming weekly for students and the University youtube channel. Since then, audio and video productions are an important part of my work.

A highlight of my experience was side to jazz producer Larry Rosen, assisting him on the post-production of "Jazz and the Philharmonic" CD/DVD, broadcasted nationally by PBS.

Today I produce, record and film multiple projects in New York City.

 

AUDIO RECORDING, MIXING AND MASTERING

Since my undergraduate studies in composition at UNICAMP (Campinas University, Brazil), audio production became an integral part of my artistry.

During my five years at University of Miami I won 4 graduate student downbeat awards as a recording engineer; recording, mixing and mastering a variety of projects and ensembles. Highlights of my experience during that period at Frost School of Music are the big band and orchestral recordings sessions, as well as the Jazz Forums, recording visiting artists such as Terence Blanchard and Dave Holland. In Miami I also did live mixing assistance during major concerts by the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra with artists such as film composer James Newton Howard, singer Bobby McFerrin, vocal group Take 6 and pianist Chick Corea.

Today I have a mobile recording station. See examples bellow of two distinct projects completely recorded using my equipment.
