Sallaberry's Songs & Comments

 

Introduction/Curiosities: the process of composing my music is quite unusual, once I start recording the drums (usually the drums are the last instrument to be recorded), defining the musical form, and then contacting other musicians (sending the drum tracks that I recorded) to give continuity of the composition process. I often record a melodic idea (singing), to be used by another instrument, as saxophone, keyboard or guitar. I started this kind of music production in 1999, when I called it by E-REC.

By E-REC, I contacted friends around the world, inviting them to be in my production. This way of making music is totally innovative, and based on it I recorded eight albums.

 

 

Songs & comments

 

1. New Samba (3:17)

Sallaberry / Flávio Medeiros

Sallaberry – Drums and percussion

Mamoru Morishita – Guitar

Flávio Medeiros – Keyboards

Jorge Pescara – Bass

Mixed by Guilherme Canaes

 

When we were finishing this song, I invited Mamoru to play on it. Could be good…and it was good! So, guitar and keyboard recorded the same melody, and the song sounds full-bodied. It is a  happy samba and great melody!

 

 

 2. Cumbica (4:01)

Sallaberry / Maurício Marques

Sallaberry – Drums, samples and percussion

Fúlvio Oliveira – Guitar

Maurício Marques – Keyboards

Adriano Paternostro – Bass

Mixed by Cássio Martim

 

I really love this song! To open this song, I included some audio samples (planes, airport sounds, peoples talking), once Cumbica is the name of São Paulo airport (I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil). When I composed this song (2008),  I was thinking about the feeling of moving from Brazil to live in another country. Coincidentally many years later (2014) I lived this experience, moving from Brazil to live in the United States. Really nice song, and amazing musicians playing the very nice vibe!

 

 

 3. Dança das Águas (6:12) 

Sallaberry / Luciano Magno / Fábio Valois

Sallaberry – Drums, voices and percussion

Mixed by Cássio Martim

 

Once I start the songs recording the drums, on Dança das Águas (Water Dance) I recorded many different percussion instruments, as shakers, hand claps and…´plastic bags´! Then I recorded many voices, and the song was on the right way! This song has a lot of influence of African music – once the influence of Africa is very strong in Brazilian music. Luciano Magno and Fabio Valois help me to produce this great song!

When we started the project regarding Sallaberry and Friends Collection, to be released in Japan, I thought that I could improve the song even more, and then I recorded some new parts of the drum tracks. Now it sounds great!

Frevo is a dance and musical style originating from Recife (city in  North/Northeast region of Brazil), traditionally associated with Brazilian Carnival. The word frevo is said to come from frever, a variant of the Portuguese word ferver (to boil). It is said that the sound of the frevo will make listeners and dancers feel as if they are boiling on the ground. The word frevo is used for both the frevo music and the frevo dance.

In Ferve o Frevo song I recorded with my partner Sandro Haick – as a duo - …and he was great again!

Immersive Audio Engine and Design (3D) By Alex Sobral

 

 

When I was finishing the recording session of Rhythm Of The Spirits, I met my old friend Alex Sobral. Alex is a  Audio Designer, with strong background in Surround Sound technologies as specialist, and Flat and 360VR Videos and Immersive Audio as well. Alex suggested me to include in Rhythm Of The Spirits cd one version of the Rhythm Of The Spirits song, applying the audio 3D features on the song. After some hard work, the results of 3D audio were great, and then I included the song - now 3D!-  named Rhythm Of The Spirits II (the version of Rhythm Of The Spirits, in 3D formart). Please listen this song through headphones.
