BETWEEN ACOUSTIC AND ELECTRONIC.
BETWEEN IMAGE AND SOUND.
BETWEEN MACHINE AND HUMAN.
BETWEEN MUSICIAN AND AUDIENCE.
Motivated by a boundary breaking approach and a fluidity between acoustic, electronic and visual elements, Diogo brings a revigorizing new light into the adventurous music scene. With the electronic aparatus breathing alongside its acoustic counterpart, and the exploration from the depths of the piano to the sounds hidden in the data of our everyday life computers, a cocktail tasting as his very own electroacoustic post rock style is shared with the audience.
The unexpected musical outcomes of the young portuguese artist, derived from the mesmerizing soundscapes and the experimental nature of his music, don't cease to impress and arise the curiosity of a public with a wide variety of interests, either through his solo productions or by way of the duo with percussionist Daniel Bolba.
Next to his performances, Diogo is interested in pushing forward the way new technologies can be used for musical purposes. Such is done via the use of body motion sensors to strictly connect the musician's gesture to electronic sound manipulation.
As winner of the "Young Creators" prize, awarded by the Portuguese National Centre of Culture, he’s currently preparing “Adventurous music with piano and electronics” - an immersive performance, crossing piano, electronics and visuals in real time.
