Gran Finale



In the beginning there was nothing
From nothing the everything exploded
Displacement of waves
Navigation, however
Cosmo, aspiration
With wings took ​​the heavens
Pursued the king of stars
Behind, the bread and the circus
And the islanders
Ahead
anthropophagically
The sun swallows him
And, in the end,
Smiling ...

Cantor Convidado/Featuring: Fábio Alves

The boy, the kite and the rainbow

On a beach not far away, a boy tilts his kite
He ran from one side to another, trying to keep the kite on foot
Around him, distant people, a world with no color
There were buildings on one side and, on the other, the ocean
All gray
Against Blue
When among the clouds was made something
Kite turned aim
Then he saw the colors, tearing the sky in a tone of love
He looked at the kite and realized
That it was tilting backwards.

A gift in this Solstice: AK1


The forces of the Solstice can be felt everywhere. The Wheel of the Year has turned once more ... and with that comes the certainty that we are all connected to a Higher Power, called Nature. While we have just channeled for the computer keyboard the second volume of the series The Song of the Spheres, we offer a gift to all our friends and collaborators. The soundtrack of the upcoming book, the continuation of the story: AK1.


Thales, the "bearer of the flame of courage," was only 12 when Bétula, the Lady of Icy Lands, urged him for a mission ... finding and learn to play with a harp made ​​of light, seven musical notes of the Song of the Spheres. A Holy song, capable of arousing men to their dormant state and selfishness and thus rebalance the forces of nature on Earth.


He knows he does not have much time to complete his mission. Hatred spreads around the globe like a virus, bringing all sorts of impure desires.Thales deceiving knows that the humans to spread that hatred is the mission of Kroll, the terrible monster of Silence. Like Thales, Kroll knows that every living being has within himself a musical note which vibrates, sonorous. This note is the sum of the frequency of vibration of all molecules in our bodies. Kroll also knows that all living beings, when their notes join in harmony, they do sound a song that is able to ascend to higher dimensions.Therefore, it is called The Song of the Spheres.



Launched in 2008, the first volume of the book, along with the soundtrack, revealed Thales's desire to fulfill its mission . His strength, courage and determination to face the dangers that challenged him. In AK1, Thales will face the worst enemy with which they could be faced: his own inclination to evil.


Accept this gift ... download the songs, share with your friends and family. The second volume of The Song of the Spheres will be released soon. But if you have not read the first volume, accept our offer as a gift this Solstice. The download, in PDF, is free. And it can be shared with everyone!

LDTS - The Singles - Remix at the aim of randomness

From Top:

"A cold wind blows from the North this spring without flowers in the Southern Hemisphere, while a placid silence settles around. Past, present and future merge as Time dissolves. The target ,mobile, is based on instinct. Breathes fear  and exhales courage. Intuition attentive, reaction holds. Dreary feeling that nurtures the soul. While the heart does the samba in the random compass of life.

Is the aim!"

From Low:

The track LDTS - The Singles was released in 2008, in an EP of remixes of the debut album of HI-BRAZIL, Let's do the Samba!. More than 32,000 people have watched the video for the original song that gives name to the album, which can be watched on the channel that the trio of artists holds on YouTube. And which now, in 2011, will host a visual version of this remix.

Don't Give Up! Poetry




One year ago, we asked to a beautiful friend from Northlands to listen to the first mix of Don't Give Up!. It was October, 13, 2010. She listened to. And surprised us with a generous and tender gift. Words spoken not by the lips of a woman, not written by the hands of a poetess, but words dictated by the pulsating love inside the heart of an ancient soul...and we'd like to share them with you. Thank you, word rider...for still being a light bearer. Our hearts are one.

Don't Give Up!







When Justice comes from Nature
The plot

A faint cold still hangs over the island of Guaiaó this spring. It was right here, in this small island to the South of the Atlantic, that the settlers came to the lands known by the Indians, ancient inhabitants of these lands, as Enguaguaçu. That, in Tupi-Guarani, means Great Bay. Received by the natives with awe and curiosity, they responded with gunfire to any attempt of approaching. The reports of the historians are clear to narrate the slaughter that ensued from there.

The genocide did not spare the children or the elderly. It was necessary to establish there, in those lands "wild" and populated by "pagans", the first village of the conquered country. To draw away their wealth and send back portions to the colonialist crown. And the green of the forest was dyed red ...

The same red which tinged the trunk of Brazil Wood, wood so valuable to the trade that they were not slow to cut down forests. Miles and miles of virgin forest were destroyed in the name of the economic growth of the colony. After all, it was necessary to expand the cities ... and ensure the continued extraction of wealth. And the green of the forest was dyed brown …

The same brown that now paints the land infertile and the rivers of the metropolis. Aquatic beds that once sustained fish, but which pollution turned into mud and sewage. Today flooded with putrid waste from residents, who work tirelessly to maintain economic growth of the cities, extracting oil from the depths of the earth, so the settler receives the portions due to him. And the sand was dyed black …


The music

In June 2010, we had programmed some rhythmic bases on tribal divisions with 100 BPM, with a focus on the human heartbeat. Maurício asked Andrew to sing what could come to his mind. Diving in the first layers of percussion, the lyrics and melody came out of his mouth in a single take, recorded in one of the few cold nights of winter here in Southern Hemisphere.

In the arrangement, we agreed to use the instruments and voices tuned based on the Pythagorean musical scale, with the note A = 432 Hz, instead of the usual 440 Hz. The message of the lyrics, we realized during editing, is divided in four different views (voices).
The first of these voices is that of Justice itself, that brings freedom to the enslaved peoples in the form of revenge. Not the vengeance of men, offered under the weight of their laws and judgments. But the rematch, the turnaround practiced by natural laws, theologically symbolized by the Divine Justice, which represents the reaction for every action, the unspeakable consequences of our actions.

She (the Justice) brings fire in her hands, symbolizing the flame of consciousness. The awareness that will make itself known - whether by love, either by pain. Whether because we accept our fate, either because we suffer trying to change it. Only the conscience offers salvation.

The second "voice" is the speech of the conquered peoples. Suffering while waiting for a solution to their destination. But they remain hopeful and are able to redeem their ancestor contact with the Sacred Feminine in the form of Justice, making rise, thus, this power over them. They are the "little ones".

The third is the voice of the shaman, the wise one who, if not reached the ultimate state of enlightenment, yet is able to establish a bridge between the divine and the profane. He emerges as the messenger, who has visions, glimpses of what lies ahead. It is he who sees the flame of consciousness transforming the oppressor, consuming his soul so he can realize his faults and has the opportunity to correct them, transforming this way, himself and the environment.

The fourth and last is exactly the voice of the one who oppresses, of the one who commits injustice against their brethren. And which inevitably will see arises in the horizon the sign of the consequences of his ambition, of his desperate struggle for power. Power over the other because he is unable to maintain control over himself. This character is revealed by the irregular verb conjugation of a few phrases of the lyrics, which identifies him as a "foreigner" who does not speak the language or not knows the the habits of the people which he subjugates.

What is positively astonishing - and there lies the role of lyricism in the lyrics - is that, even knowing that, under the sword of Justice, he will have to abandon the old rules and choices that caused unnecessary pain and suffering in their fellow men, he is able to recognize the flame of consciousness brought by the hand of the vengeful aspect of Justice. And at the end, he gives himself, lets himself be consumed by the fire of virtue, to be born into a new stage in the evolutionary scale. And he understands that only by accepting the inevitability of "death" is that we are reborn into the consciousness of eternity.

"Of course, the lyrics here does not deal with physical death itself, but the" death", the end of the molds, shapes, aspects of our personalities that we do not need or do not want more. And, to be surrounded by the "upper lights," as the song says, we must face this "death" not as the loss of something vital, but as the transformation of an old form to a whole new one. A revival! "explains Andrew.

"To achieve this revitalization, we need to never give up our ideals. And combat the injustice with force within us so that she no longer to exist outside of us. Only the honor of a pure intention, the most beautiful of jewelry, will be able to undo the knots that bind men in their folly, "said Maurício.


The video

Every creative process depends on a number of factors. Internal, such as mood, intent, goal, desire; and external, such as criticism, suggestions, experiences. We, of HI-BRAZIL, we respect each of these signals as contributors of the artistic process. And we blend them to the mass with which we shape, with great care, our small digital "sculptures".

In the case of the Don't Give Up! project, it was no different. With the fluidity of a river that slips through the rocks of a mountain, each piece of the puzzle was coming together with the subtlety of a lotus in bloom. Nothing was imposed, nothing was measured. Everything just flowed, how it would have be.

Excerpts from television reports, documentaries and even video games are responsible for the narrative. Mixed with images captured by the cameras and iPhones of André and Guacymar, they form the intricate plot and undeniable which the music deals with. "Demystifying the doubt, " as Guacymar prefers to say.

"The music was ready a year ago. She waited for the right moment to be revealed, went through a maturation time till it reached the dimension of the images. And the result is an overwhelming encounter between past and future. Shaping the present ..." he concluded.

She will come...



It's Spring. The dry and warm air this Winter gave way to showers of hail covering the ground of the city with a white carpet of ice. After Epilogue announcing last spring, and Prologue, days before the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we're very pleased to share with you now, the initial moment of this new season.


Our adventure started four years ago, when the project The Song of the Spheres was born. Also in Spring, details about the story began to show up. And it tells about Thales, a boy who has a mission to find seven very special musical notes, which are hidden in different places on the Planet. With them, he can make the music of the Universe sound on Earth, by adjusting in this way, the natural forces that act upon us.


From the beginning, we knew that support Thales in his journey would not be easy. But our soul seemed prepared for the task. Furthermore, our intention was transformed. And so we begin to create the fantastic world of Bétula, Argon, Melíade and many other magical characters that accompany the boy on his mission.  The story was unfolding in a spontaneous, unplanned way. Then came the first notes on the keyboard ... the first song, the first arrangement ... the voices of the choir ...


As a result we had in 2009 the first volume of the saga, The Bard and the Ice Queen, and 14 songs written and produced for the soundtrack that accompanies the work. The songs are as addenda, appendices that complement the story. It is as if parts of the saga were told without the use of words, using only the physical resources of sound frequencies.


Four summers have passed and today we are completing the writing of the second volume of the story and producing new songs. Much has happened and much is yet to come. Change is inevitable. However, we still believe that there is time to reflect on what remains for the future.

We want the future as envisioned and written by someone in the apocalyptic texts of "sacred" books, where there's no salvation for anything? Or we want the future as well as Thales, giving us to dangerous missions to save life on Earth? How far does our desire for comfort?

Wait! We will soon have big news about this work.


Warmest greetings,



Maurício & André.

The portals between worlds are open. It's time to release Prólogo (Prologue)

Hello, friends!

The portals between worlds are open. It is Samhain night in the Southern Hemisphere, when the veil between the worlds rises to celebrate the death along with our ancestors, reminding us always that it is from death that life comes. And it is Beltane in the northern hemisphere, when the gates are opened to commemorate the union between God and Goddess, male and female, the creation of life in its fullness. 

In festive mood, we present to you the new video from HI-BRAZIL: Prologue. 








For the day comes when the desert sands
shall fill thy holy places
New faiths shall make a mock of all thy
holies, and centurion shall call unto centurion across
thy fortress walls...
(Harmachis)





Synopsis:


In a desert, two friends gather to revere Nature. They scratch symbols on sandy soil and greet the spirits of the place. The landscape is lush, though it seems bleak. Nomads, they know some mysteries about life that there is born and dies every day.


Thousands of miles away, several colleagues gather to explore nature. They draw graphics on work boards and greet the bankers of the site. The atmosphere is stifling, though it seems comfortable. Sedentary, they know many mysteries about the money that there is counted and recounted every day.



Background:




 

Duality. If it could be expressed in one word, that word would be chosen by HI-BRAZIL to set the video for Prologue. Made specially for the release of the second volume of the saga The Song of the Spheres, the music will be part of the soundtrack of the work that is being created by the two artists.


"It may seem paradoxical to choose the word duality to express the prologue of a story," says Maurício Businari. "But it's exactly upon the balance of opposing forces that this work is based." 


When darkness and light are in balance, says Maurício, Nature shows itself creative, inspiring. But when something happens that endangers the harmony between them, the result is chaotic and destructive.


"Imagine you are among friends and is approached by strangers. They force you to drink a strange potion that turns you into a zombie. You then proceeds to do all the wants of strangers, forgetting forever your origins," says Maurício.


"It's like the story of Aladdin," added André Luiz Salibi. "Where the genie is imprisoned in a lamp by a black magician, that casts over him a curse. And he is forced to satisfy the desires of any person to possess it."

According to André, for the ancient people of the desert, the desires are flames that, lit by passions purely selfish, can cause terrible disasters. "In this video, we try to illustrate this issue, using excerpts from old films, produced in the 1950s, that are under Public Domain Licenses. They are interesting pictures, stories that intersect themselves and eventually go parallel, towards an unclear outcome."

Epilogue, the first video released by the duo to announce the second volume of The Song of the Spheres, refers to this outcome. Like Prolog, it can be seen on channel HI-BRAZIL on Youtube:

Project The Song of the Spheres

The project The Song of the Spheres was born of the HI-BRAZIL's need to create, through art, a record about the striking changes that are being operated in the terrestrial environment as a result of human selfishness. "And it is also as a survival manual," says Maurice. "A guide, a map to help us in finding the lost child within us."


The book tells the story of Thales, a boy born and raised in a large city on Earth, and his extraordinary adventure around the globe in search of the seven notes of the Song of the Spheres. This song is powerful, it is the union of the vibrations of the atoms of all living beings. And it is this song who keeps life in balance. But men, with their factories and cities, are reducing very quickly the frequency range of this music.

At the request of Bétula, The Lady of The Icy Lands and connoisseur of ancient mysteries, Thales agrees to participate in the long and perilous journey in search of musical notes with which he can make sound again, with a harp whose strings are made of light, the Song of the Spheres .


"The book was born because of that desire that we both had to go around, leaving the past behind, venturing ourselves into risky missions to save the Earth," concludes Andrew.


The saga is divided into two volumes. The first, The Bard and the Queen of Ice, is originally written in Portuguese and is available for download at the duo's site, along with the soundtrack, also created and produced by HI-BRAZIL:

The second volume of the series is being produced and will be released in December this year (2010).

The beginning can be the end... it's all a matter of points

Greetings


Hello, friends! What was one, then two and after that, three, became two again. And in its dual expression of Nature! Two lives in cohesion, souls going to the core. "Down the staircase, I found gravity's warmth", says Maurício Businari, from HI-BRAZIL. "It is the kind of thing you discover when you start to dig deep the dry sands of a desert. You can find a skull, a scorpion or even a beautiful and rare flower. If you find the second, you have protein. The third one, connection with Nature and, the first one, a good snare".

Maurício says that this kind of experience is like "those moments when you are in the middle of a fucking nightmare and feels that you are alone, even surrounded by thousands of people, no one will see you or help you, because they can't listen to what you are saying. You just try to shake your arms and hands, scream at them, but their ears just can't receive the frequencies...That's why - maybe - the third vertice of the triangle supposed for an instance to be itself the point in the middle. So this geometric figure has been changed and first of all it assumed a form of a line between two points, but now it is proved to be a circle". 

Greenvange

HI-BRAZIL is now going to re-set their clocks to the moon and is receiving showers of inspirational sonorous and pictorial artistic references. The Brazilian duo is now working on the second book of the saga The Song of the Spheres. "While most of turtles insist to keep their swollen bodies into their shells, a bunch of butterflies fly straight to the light of the sun...In their aerial march, they touch with gentleness the ionosphere around the cities. 

What an harp have in common with the arid scenario of a desert? Thales, our young and courageous hero, is going to discover it. And you will, too, soon. "That's why we are working too in a videoclip for the second soundtrack album, that will be released later this year, altogether with the book", Explains André Luiz Salibi, beginning his speech and conducting this post to its end. "All stories are sectioned by acts, by moments. We released Epílogo first. So we will be - in the next days - ready to release another important part of it".

"In the next days", says André...So, keep tuned! This will be around you soon!

Dr Remy: new collaborative remix with HI-BRAZIL, lubzi and David Bradley

Hi, friends! If you missed DrRemy's Collaboration Weekly Music Celebration, it's time to try it. Below is a transcription of what DrRemy wrote about this set in her BLOG. Enjoy!

(...)

This music set is a collaboration with @sciencebase, David Bradley, @Lubzi and @Businari, Mauricio.

I opened the set with (@sciencebase) David’s Here Comes the Sun mixed with (@Businari) Businari’s Baal from Hi-Brazil Soundtrack from the epic book The Song of the Spheres, Vol.1, The Bard and the Queen Of Ice. http://homepage.mac.com/hibrazil/bardo1_index.html (details of the Legend)
This represents sunrise on our planet earth, Gaia.

Next I mixed rectus limbus from Businari’s Hi-Brazil Let’s Do the Samba: http://homepage.mac.com/hibrazil/ldts_index.html (for details) as this represents the sunrise has now warmed our earth.

I picked Babak and transition to (@Lubzi) Lubzi’s Braham. This represents that we, as human race, have set up way of life that resonates our higher self. According to Lubzi’s Braham: is Braham Lincoln, as is also Abraham, the ‘father’ of the Jews and Arabs: The Wise Father as is Abraham Lincoln: The Government of the People.

I like the fact that Lubzi’s piece represents both the Arabs and the Jews as one, connecting by Abraham. It is wise of her to do so in this fashion of music and speech combined.

Again from David’s Sunrise to warm the earth by Businari’s pieces and closing with Lubzi’s Braham as Abraham to Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address.

What talented friends I have. Thank you David, Mauricio and Lubzi….. You have honored me much!

(...)



We'd like to thank DrRemy (@DrRemy on Twitter), @lubzi and David Bradley (aka @sciencebase) for such love and energy!
