Hello dear friends. You may not know but I’ve started a series of interviews with other musicians on this website. It’s called Diogo Interviews. They come from one musician to another.
I’ve already posted the first interview (with Metaphorest) and soon I’ll be posting a new one with musician Phildel (pictured on the left).
A big shout out to my friends Peter French for helping with the construction of this new interview and Pedro Mendes from whom I stole the whole interview idea!!!
Stay tuned! Love.
I have been working on another song, entitled Man on a Journey.
This is one of the first songs I started working on for my debut album. I maintained the melody/harmony but did change most of its rhythmic structure, so it does sound a bit different. It is going to be the 2nd mammoth of the album in terms of lenght (around 10 minutes), with all the other songs being about 5 minutes long.
Hello dear friends. I’ve been working on my song Conquering Sea. It has changed immensely over time. It’s funny how sometimes compositions can go from a soundscape to a totally different one.
This is going to be a mammoth song, around 10 minutes long.
It’s in B flat minor and it starts very slow and sparse, with huge harmonic intervals of 10ths on the left hand providing the bass, and short trills providing the melody on the right hand. After this 2 minute intro comes a beautiful melodic section that continues as a prelude to the verses and where the voice/lyrics kick in. The verses have a nice rhythmic section with trills yet again, but this time around the first and second beat are tied together, giving them a nice rhythm. More on this song soon. Peace and Love.
Hello dear friends,
This is a sample of a song composed by me last year, entitled When Nightfall Steps In.
This is only the instrumental. The final version for the album will, of course, have my vocals as well.
I decided to include in this video a small excerpt of the lyrics I wrote for the song.
Both the music and lyrics are by me, so you are in no circumstances allowed to use them at all.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more news!
Dear friends, there’s a new section on my website called “Diogo Interviews“. As the name suggests it’s me doing a series of interviews to other musicians. These won’t be just your regular interview, as they come from one musician to another.
The first one features the artist METAPHOREST: “I don’t remember ever not singing really - I took up guitar at around age 12″.
