During the pandemic times in Belgium I have started a beautiful collaboration with Brazilian multi-instrumentalist and composer Otacílio Melgaço. We have started an online collaboration with a perfect timing during the-sitting-at-home months, significant for these pandemic times.
Together we are creating compositions through a process of alternating the initiator.
One sends a composition and the other joins, a very inspiring way of working that is really triggering the imagination and places the second composer in a very interesting position to start composing from. Sometimes slightly out of your comfort zone, at least pushing you to find new materials and compositional tools.
Here's a small extract of our first work, Hundert Wasser is a composition initiated by Otacílio.
