Comprei um ano atrás por €250. Nunca cheguei a usá-las. Mudei para o estrangeiro e não consegui levá-las. São em excelente estado.

I had my last shows for the year this past week with my two favorite groups Bomba Suicida and O’QueStrada. First was with Tânia Carvalho at Lux. I was excited to test out their new Void sound system. The Airmotion speakers they installed are really beautiful. The show went well, but in the end I felt like the weird room anomalies made it difficult to accertain the quality of the speakers themselves.
The second concert was with O’QueStrada in a big square in the middle of Lisbon called Terreiros do Paço. For the last month the city has been closing traffic in this area and having concerts in the afternoon on Sundays. The guys from O’QueStrada aren’t really accustomed to this kind of outdoor show on a high stage, but it went great and I was really happy to have it as my last show of the year. Probably the most satisfying moment was being able to really project Pablo’s voice on one of their new songs and hear it slap back from the buildings around. The sunset made a nice backdrop.
Happy New Year!
O segundo espectáculo era com os O’QueStrada no Terreiro Do Paço num palco no meio da praça. Os músicos não são muito acostumados aos palcos grandes, mas correu bem e eu estava feliz com o meu último concerto do ano. Provavelmente o momento mais divertido foi durante um novo tema em que o Pablo subiu ao centro do palco e podia se ouvir a sua voz reflectir dos prédios a volta.
Bom Ano Novo para todos!
Surprise! I have a band!
Yeah, me too. All of a sudden on my birthday I got an email from SXSW inviting us to play. At first it was mainly a ruse to get a free wristband, but now that we’ve finished some recordings I’ve decided to sell the songs in an attempt to raise money to fly us to Austin. Please check it out here.
Surpresa! Tenho uma banda!
Sim, eu também. De repente, no dia do meu aniversário, recebi um mail do festival SXSW a convidar-nos tocar. O meu objectivo do início era só ganhar um passe para o festival, mas agora acabámos umas gravações decidi vendé-las para tentarmos comprar voos ao Texas. Podes ver aqui.
This last weekend I installed and operated sound for a really nice, really short dance piece called Ricardo by Tânia Carvalho at Bomba Suicida. I wish I had taken some pictures because some of the lighting effects were great.
On a completely different subject, I am on the verge of finishing some recordings of about eight songs I started a year ago. I didn’t do anything with them for a long time, but now I have decided to finish them before the end of the year. Then what will I do with them??
I put myself in this odd position every few years. I finish songs, record them, and then….nothing. I’ve never had a band for long enough time to really warrant using them as promotional material. This time I thought, “Ok, no more getting lost in the old material pile, I’m going to sell them as digital downloads, and instead of promoting a band, I’ll promote my future song writing. If people want to hear more music from me, they’ll contribute to the cause!” Then, a respected and good-looking friend of mine said, “oh, that’s all?” So, What do you think?
