Learning and giving back

August was a very special month. To start with, we had the amazing orchestrator Tim Simonec come all the way to Brazil to teach us Musimagem folks some tricks.

Of course we treated Tim to some of the best food in Rio. He loved all of it—specially coconuts. From left to right—Victor Pozas, his now wife Nina, me, João Paulo Mendonça, Tim Simonec, his wife Janet and Léo from ProClass.

Needless to say we had an amazing time. Not only is Tim extremely knowledgeable but also does great impressions.

This month I also started working on a new telenovela, released the Megabricks 1-bit OST to a great reception, made several new tracks for yet unannounced projects... taught two game music lessons to a full class of new Musimagem recruits (and we're coming up with a chiptune-for-charity album shortly). I also had the pleasure to take masterclasses from the great composer Armando Lôbo this month.

I have to say things are pretty great!
