Abençoada Orixás’ Index

These are some tracks I’ve been working on using Brazilian tv shows, soap operas and other cultural references taken from online videos and field recording.  The audio was then registered with tape recorders and mixed with scratched vinyl loops plugged into different pedals. I also used simple beats from an old school sequencer, recorded vocals with headphones turned microphones and contact mics.

The process to produce the tracks came after images I’ve composed using evangelical propaganda art references, mixed to soap opera scenes and notions of the heavy  consumption of cheap plastic goods in Brazil in contrast to the current trends of going sustainable or trying to bring down environmental footprint.

The idea is to produce short tracks in the pop music fashion ruminating all sorts of Brazilian mainstream cultural references.
