Tower57

This month I moved to Rio and set up a new base studio here! Hectic doesn't begin to describe it. I've been busy arranging loads of music for two upcoming telenovelas and one that's already airing, Sete Vidas. Thanks go to my friends Victor Pozas, João Paulo Mendonça and Nani Palmeira who are having me onboard again!

I also started working on an amazing title with two great friends, Marco and Cyangmou. It's called Tower57 and it's going to be awesome. The images of the game speak for itself. Can't wait to really sink my teeth into this one!


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!

File / Export

First of all, Carveallion is set to be out in September. The first pre-orders are already coming. You can already hear a sampler of the soundtrack and pre-order yourself! 

Our in-house build is incredibly fun to play and a true period piece. This is the game I wish I had as a child... but alas, I was a SEGA kid and even if this game existed back then, I would be as unable to play it as I was unable to play Zelda, Mario and all the other Nintendo great games.

Also I released two little OSTs that have been sitting on the drawers for quite a long time now: Shoot Out! by Ratalaika Games and Circuit Defender by Supaplex Games, both headed by very good friends I made on the tubes.
