As a musician, he is using mainly diverted machines, lo-fi field recordings, feedbacks, in the spirit of experimental music (Graham Lambkin, Andrea Neumann, Kevin Drumm, Jason Lescalleet) influenced by doom, video editing techniques and older masters in the likes of Alvin Lucier, Parmegiani or Bellini. In 2016 he has participated in the writing, performing and sound making of collaborative / shared authorship pieces: Murder Dance (last dates: Cork, Helsinki), future friend/ships (last dates: Hamburg, New York), Turbulence (last dates:Oslo, Berlin) and Zombies (last dates: Dublin, San Francisco)
Traveller and dreamer. Plays cello and pocket trumpet and is part of the label Creative Sources Recordings. Son of violinist and improviser Ernesto Rodrigues. Has been following a professional career in music since 1997 and performs in concerts and workshops around Europe. His work relates the classical movements with contemporary music - through the free jazz and develops a non conventional language resorting to preparations and textural forms on his both instruments. He felt stagnant in Lisbon and in March 2016 moved to Berlin in order to develop his own cello technical and find interesting musicians to work with.
He has been playing the violin for 30 years and in that time has played all genres of music ranging from contemporary music to free jazz and improvised music, live and in the studio. His main interest shifted towards contemporary improvised and composed music. The relationship with his instruments is focused in sonic and textural elements. Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning. Active in different settings on the Portuguese scene for free improvised music, both as a collaborator and in leading his own groups. Music for Dance, Cinema, Video and Performance. Has created the record label Creative Sources Recordings in 1999, which mainly concentrates on releasing experimental and electro-acoustic music.
