I come from Belo Horizonte (Brazil) and have been living in Malmö (Sweden) since 2011. From early on I have been interested in and involved with different kinds of music, having played with rock bands (Nono Osso), chamber music groups (flute and guitar Duo Tramanduá, flute quartet Pé di Sí, woodwind quintet Capixaba), orchestras (Orquestra Sinfonica do Espírito Santo), and soundpainting ensembles (The Swedish Soundpainting Orchestra, International Soundpainting Think Tank Ensemble, Soundpainting BH). Teaching, performing, and researching have been deeply interrelated in my career. Since 2011 I’ve been exploring artistically and academically the affordances of soundpainting as compositional and performative medium through which artistic awareness can be raised as different forms of artistic expression become weaved together in performance.
