Doublebass Player, Composer

About Me

“They are totally intelectual short stories because I was writing them on the basis of my literary experience and had not yet found the link between literature and life” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez I ‘m a bass-player/composer based in Copenhagen and I’ve been writing my own music since 2013 and released 3 albums with it: “Whatever It Is You’re Seeking, Won’t Come In The Form You’re Expecting” ; “Truth Has To Be Given In Riddles” and “Dancing Our Way To Death” (co-lead with my friend and guitarist Pedro Branco). And a new album “From Order to Chaos” is coming out this march on Clean Feed records. I also do freelance work. I studied at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (Holland) and I’m now doing my masters degree at the Rhythmic Music Conservatory, in Denmark. I’m really happy about the partnership I’ve been developing with Papélia-musica, D’Addario strings & Planet Waves. They’ve been a huge help, providing me with the best strings and cables. I like songs and I like improvised music. I like Charlie Haden and I like Arvo Part. I like to see love and beauty in things.
