Abraços KIKO

The perpetual search of a diverse and challenging musical way has to be inside of each one of us. The musician must inside balance of itself disturbing a beneficial arrogance leaves that safe to show it to its art and the constant doubt and of that this really condiz art with its personal yearnings. When this balance meets and they recognize it to the people and they approve, the satisfaction is full. One rewards for as much devotion to music. However, this sensation nor always is lasting and infinite.

Therefore, the search of diverse artistic ways must be always in first plan for a sincere musician with itself exactly and strong artistic desires. It was this search that Cuca Teixeira, Thiago Espirito Santo and I made in the writing of our new work, Neural Code.
Research, intermeshing, experimentation, diversion, mixtures, synergy, plethora of musical information. We place in eight bands our neural code, that is, our DNA brain-musical comedy. We look the satisfaction with what we have of safer in each one and with what we could search of more challenging - formulas of compass, styles, textures, timbres, rhythms, harmonias and melodies that had appeared by means of this cerebral intersecção of three people who possess a diverse musical description.

A thought leads to another one. An initial climate sediments a concept that serves of guide for an entire music.

If not to like resulted it, faces as an exercise and repeats the procedure. With certainty, good ideas will appear.
