Pedro Carneiro Silva e Frederico Cavaliere
Água Verde is the first album featuring my own compositions and I was really glad to have the partnership of the clarinetist Frederico Cavaliere, a musician of great sensibility, in this project with me.
The songs were composed between 2012 and 2015 when I was living between Lisbon, London and Berlin and are about personal experiences and impressions lived during this period. Me and Frederico worked on the songs during 2015, giving them a very intimate approach.
The Album has 3 compositions from the project "O Trampolim de Oiticica" in which I tried new possibilities for musical composition.
"Tempo em Movimento" (Time in Motion) talks about time and anxiety. The composition process took over 2 months in which I disciplined myself to make only one bar per day. "A Ilha" (The Island) came from a random encounter in the city where I asked a person in the street, whom I did not know, to talk about a feeling she was experiencing. She spoke about isolation and in exchange I made this song. "Solidão"(Loneliness) addresses the difficulty of being alone. In this process I was isolated for 7 days in a remote village where I was not allowed to meet and see anyone.
The album was recorded in 2015 in Rio de Janeiro and released in 2017.
