Audio and video production became a main aspect of my work since I started my Masters of Music in Studio Jazz Writing (University of Miami). During my 5 years at the institution I was partially responsible for the University of Miami Jazz youtube channel.

Other highlight of my experience producing 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, my YOUTUBE CHANNEL is a major outlet of my work, having more than 100 videos produced by me.

AUDIO RECORDING, MIXING AND MASTERING

Since my undergraduate studies in Electroacoustic 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 home-studio and a mobile station used to record many of my projects. See examples bellow of two distinct projects completely recorded using my equipment.

Similarly to audio, video production became an integral part of my artistry. Today I have a home-studio and video equipment used to record most of my projects. Please visit my YOUTUBE CHANNEL to see a good sample of my work as a videographer.
