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!

Collaboration Nov 6 2009 Final by DrRemy


Epílogo: @DrRemy new neuromix available

Hello, friends. The last HI-BRAZIL music video, Epílogo, called the attention of DJ @DrRemy, that made a good remix of it with the Shakira's "Loba" latest song.

"This #WeeklyMusicCelebration remix set is a collaboration from a Brazilian music producer, Mauricio Businari (also known as @Businari on twitter). His piece calls HI BRAZIL - Epilogo (Epilogue). I started Businari's piece of our set with a Hand of Maiden with her breathe and pulses (as a form of heart beats) which represent Femininity's Nature and Temperament. I remix the set with a Bass Guitar and various drums (using in ritual drum circle and spiritual dance through out our planet) as keeper of the temporal or timing to the music. The down beat is at 129 beats per minute (BPM) for the purpose to organically invoke the body movement ~ dancing ~ in keeping it light with a touch of amusement and joy", as she explains in her BLOG.

HI BRAZIL Epilogue: Earth is A Sacred Femininity: Understanding as Pulse of The Universe, Galaxies and Beyond by DjDocREMY

Enjoy it!


Epilogue: collaboration of artists from various countries announces second volume of The Song of the Spheres

New video from HI-BRAZIL counts with the participation of 51 artists from 15 countries

"On a mountain, a strong wind begins to blow, announcing major changes. The body trembles, the mouth opens wide and the words start a panoramic flying over the waters of the unconsciousness. Images appear in heaven, They are spread in shades of white and blue while the message is ongoing. incisor, as an infallible arrow that made its plumb in patches of sun that the darkest clouds let go through ...".

This is the argument of Epilogue, the new HI-BRAZIL video. Produced for the release of the second volume of the saga A Song of the Spheres, the video consists of images from Nature, captured by the trio of artists and collaborators who also use Creative Commons licenses to release their work. The 666 rmx guys, that are helping again HI-BRAZIL staff to bring Epílogo (Epilogue) to you, used images of 51 artists from 15 countries, including Brazil, United States, South Korea, Iceland and Japan.

The second volume of the epic, Urda, the Elder from the Sands of Time, will be launched in 2010. For the soundtrack, there will be new collaborations, which will make
Thales's journey in search of the seven notes of the Song of the Spheres even more sensational. May Kroll does not see that ... otherwise, the Earth would be able to resist to his thirst for destruction?

If you have not read or heard The Song of the Spheres, both the book and the full album with the soundtrack are available for download at HI-BRAZIL site. The downloads are free and you can share all files with anyone you want. On the site, you can also print and assemble the album cover, if you desire. Just click on the icons.

Epílogo (Epilogue)

Wind, whirlwind, hurricane
Magma, lava, volcano's ashes
Rain, waterfall, floods
The whole Earth shakes in upheaval

Sugar cane, gold, mining, extraction
Dead forests, drought in whole ground
Will bring forth the nation's hunger
Disintegrating life in profusion

Sound the trumpets of emotion
Fear in sight, do risk your reason
Your way out is to open your heart
Make sound the notes of the song

Words come out of the mouth toward
Mob, uncontrollable confusion
And comes a woman over the dragon
Bringing the freedom in her hands

Epílogo (Epilogue): The new HI-BRAZIL single will be released in a few days

This picture, by Tor Even Mathiessen, was published under a Creative Commons license

The Earth's climate is changing. Our impact on the environment is indisputable: global warming and global dimming, Codex Alimentarius, genetic manipulation, genocide. Kroll, the terrible monster of silence, will be victorious in his mission to convince humans to silence the Song of the Spheres? To destroy all forms of life on the planet? Thales will be able to find the seven notes of the song? Will he be able to make it sound again, reversing the evil that Kroll spread over this world? Four notes have been found. Other three are still missing. Thales does not think about quitting, but he does not know the adventures that await him in the rescue of the remaining notes will be even more dangerous ...

The second volume of The Song of the Spheres - Urda, the elder from Sands of Time is already being realized by the staff of HI-BRAZIL, as well as the soundtrack. The first part of the epic, The Bard and the Ice Queen is available for download at the site of the trio, who currently works at a special surprise in celebration of the Spring/Autumn Equinox. This is Epílogo (Epilogue), the first single from The Song of the Spheres. The video, with 5 minutes, includes excerpts from films produced by artists around the world, who kindly gave their works to the collective collaboration, under Creative Commons licenses. Stay tuned, because in a few days we will post here on the blog a link to Epílogo (Epilogue).


HI-BRAZIL music videos: 15.000 views on Youtube

Click to access HI-BRAZIL channel on Youtube

Hi, pals! It's a pleasure to announce that HI-BRAZIL videos on Youtube are reaching the mark of 15.000 views. Let's do the Samba!, the first hit of the trio's debut album, was watched by more of 6.500 Youtubers. Released in November 2007, the video, directed by the creative staff of 666 rmx, is an anathema to the abundant fertility of nature. Mainly in Brazilian land - where, according to the registrar Pero Vaz de Caminha, who sent the letter to the king of Portugal announced the discovery of Brazil in 1500 -, "planting here, everything flows". The digital album is also a critical to the civilization in which the colonizer, believing in the illusion of having spaces of ground on Earth, dominates in a predatory way those who were in that place first. And, just like the nature around, assimilate its culture and trivializes it, until the colonized ones will admire only another culture that, until then, seemed to be alien for them.

"The music was composed in 2004," explains Mauricio Businari, from HI-BRAZIL. "I used GarageBand on my G3. ... A blue dalmation... I was pissed of at that moment of my life, very shocked by the course of world politics and its consequences on Brazil. At the same time, following a dive in search of true inner stimuli leaving my soul "connected." It was a movement in and out, almost at the same time. The time interval between them was very short".

Hence came the idea of producing an album that was a criticism of the colonial system imposed to the "Third World" nations by "the First World" ones. The album would receive the title "1822", the year of the independence of Brazil, and would be launched under the nickname of DOT, a music research project that was developed with Mauricio's partner, André Luiz Salibi. The work, however, would be postponed until 2007 when, after a strong flu that left Mauricio very sick, he decided it was time to release emotions and reduce the difference between internal and external pressures of himself. "When Gargântula was recorded, in June of 2007, was winter in my country. I was in so much fever, and the beats resound in my head and I felt more and more confident, until the words started to jump out of my throat like little spiders, you know? And, from that point, I knew what I had to do. In August, the album was ready".

The idea to launch the debut album via Creative Commons came after Businari's experimental work on CC Mixter, a portal designed for a community interested in exchanging musical sounds. And creating new music with banks of sounds exchanged between users. "Months before, I was finishing a remix for Natchoongi, which participated in the Salman Ahmad remixes contest. In that site, all the work was registered with Creative Commons licenses. And then I began to ask one thousand things to Google and the opportunity was lit like a lamp. In less than six months, the music Gargântula has been downloaded more than six thousand times. Right now, we have ten thousand downloads of that song. The staff of Nine Inch Nails, for example, was only doing it this year ...", remember the musician.


With the arrival of Guacymar Mazzariello, the duo HI-BRAZIL, became a triangle. And the chance came for enchant the guys 666rmx to take care of all HI-BRAZIL video production. For the joy of the trio, the nice guys of 666rmx accepted the challenge. "I watched the first video produced by HI-BRAZIL for the tune Gargântula. When I saw that sea lion dancing, the Betty Boop character, and the story being retelled, reissued in pieces to be transformed in another statment, the arrangement, the voice of Businari, I said: Stop editing right now. This work is done, there is no more to do. We have to release it! From that moment on, I was becoming a member of HI-BRAZIL, and started to discuss ideas about the production of Let's do the Samba! video".

Salibi tells that the whole creative process around the video was based on randomness. As a storm of ideas, words were introduced to Google in search of the images that best represented them. "For two or three days, we keep searching and saving images collected in the net. It was very funny, because we have being used Cool Iris, a plugin for browsers, which is an image viewer, to search pictures in a random way. We found many things! And the puzzle get solved", he says.

All images, without exception, received small "touches" of HI-BRAZIL visual arts, led by André and Guacymar. As the very first video, starred by Betty Boop (Gargântula), in Let's do the Samba!, the characters sometimes dance in still images, in extracts of old films, and in Flash animations made by 666rmx. The comcept parameters followed the techniques of collage and animation for web. There is none central character in this story told in this unusual way, where all characters have their identity preserved with the use of eye stripes. On a planet called Earth, the ship of HI-BRAZIL is fuming, throwing bananas over human heads.

Carmen Miranda

Carmen Miranda, whose centenary of birth is celebrated this year, is on Let's do The Samba! video, appearing as some kind of "guest artistst". A HI-BRAZIL's tribute to the diva that, according to some musical historians, would have created the Tropicalism, an important brazilian musical movement. "This is our tribute to her. On our site, there is a release in the form of a story that better explains her involvement in the plot," warns Businari. "His final appearance is surprising and show how we feel about her, and her contribution to our culture and our expression of art".
