Hi-Brazil Gargântula's debut videoclip

It's done now! The videoclip for Gargântula is ready to be experienced. The collage art was made using frames of an old north-american animation, about an old colonialist message. And it seems to be like: "We will catch you by the fear". So, thanks to "pixelization" of the modern culture, we could modify this statement. We would like to thank Ms. Betty Boop and Mr. Bimbo for the excellent acting and comprehension. And the graceful spirit of the Internet who made this frame- and millions of another frames - free and shared for all through Creative Commons licenses.

New videoclip for Gargântula

Olá, guys! HI-BRAZIL is working now at the video release from the tune Gargântula, from their debut album, Let's do the Samba!. The track was recorded at the beginning of the winter in south hemisphere (june), and released at august, reaching 4.097 downloads in 20 days at internet archive. And the counter is growing fast!

"The frighten overlaying vocals were recorded in one single take. The lyrics start to pull out of my throat like little spiders or something, while the pulsing beats of the drums keep boombing inside my head", says Maurício. "I was thinking that day about this tendency of most of humans to minimize important questions like global warm, extreme poverty or large consume of dangerous medicine and modified food...and, by other side, give larger importance to the celebrity news or police and terrorism stuff. That's why this minimal-samba-trance-calypso came out, to talk about the inner power we have to cure ourselves and overcome all this fear, sickness and madness caused by modern civilization".

Let's do the Samba!

This is the cover from the single Let's do the Samba, debut album from Hi-Brazil. About the art, Mauricio Businari Says: "Living in a warm and hot brazilian island, with a strong sun over our heads, lead us to pour over the emotion of this contact, putting a watermelon pending on the neck or bananas over the head...".

The title-song is composed of elemental samples, loops and effects, waves of sounds collected by internet - like the birds that suddenly appears in the melody, composing an whistling ambient and creating a rhythm scene to the simple and repeating lyric composed and singed with some kind of strange jeer by Businari.

"I Composed this song in 2004, to be included as part of the DOT Project, which me and my partner, André Luiz Salibi, were working on. We collected sounds from Internet, via Google, and mixed up them at our portable studio (an Imac G3, 600 MHz, 1 GB SDRAM), using Garageband and Cubase as creating tools. With the cool tool, we could capture audio from most various sources, as universities, organizations and government project sites, and collect - in about six months - hundreds of WAVs and MP3s from most various sounds that run in waves around the Globe, starting with variations from whale's vocalic songs, till clicks and blips captured by scientists from the sound produced in the core of the Earth. About 14 songs were composed, but an error while making file's backup has deleted for ever the memories of this experience and made the same to the possibility of play some of more complexes of them again. But many funny stuff are prevailed to the pixels disappearing and this is one of them.
