My musical works

Postby Highlander » 29 Jun 2013 21:30

I created this thread to show some of my musical works, if you are interested.
I play drums and keyboards. I've played drums in some punk-rock and thrash metal bands and also played keyboards in black metal bands. Heavy metal is my favorite style of music but i also like a lot of other styles of music such as New Age, Celtic, Medieval and Movie Soundtracks, among others. It is the latter which influenced me to play a lot of my songs on my solo project named Gustavo Vieira (which is my real name).
In this topic I will put music composed by me that have to do with the themes of dreams and spirituality, music that is based on these themes or that can be used to relax, meditate or perhaps induce a lucid dream or OBE or has nothing to do with these themes but i think it fits in here.

Gustavo Vieira - Celestial Mysteries (2002)

This is the 3rd set of songs i did in 2002. A colleague of mine lent me a book about life after death (called "Life After Life"). It contained reports of people who had experienced this and some more theories. As i read the book, music started to appear in my head like a soundtrack for the book. This album is based on this book and other parallel topics as dreams, spirits, past lifes, etc...
I'll put here the whole album. If you prefer the songs separately, tell me.
I don't know how to embed the video here or to have this linked, so, i'll just put here the link.

Songs:
01 - Past Lifes
02 - The Body and The Soul
03 - Premonitions
04 - Dreams
05 - Celestial Mysteries
 - Life after Death?
I (06) - Out-of-Body Experience
II (07) - Wandering Spirit
III (08) - The other side

01 - Past Lifes
It's about hypnotic regression, meditation or dreams that allows us to return to a past life. The song begins with futuristic instruments and develops to medieval instruments to imply the travelling to the past.

02 - The Body and The Soul
OBE. Out-of-Body Experience. The separation of the astral body from the physical body and its journey through the astral world.

03 - Premonitions
I love Vangelis. I love the melodies, the instruments, the feelings in his music. The sound I use in this song reminds me of Vangelis. It was on purpose. It is a kind of a tribute to my favorite musician.

04 - Dreams
Music about dreams. Lucid and non-lucid. A walk through dreamland.
The piano was played by my brother Ricardo.

05 - Celestial Mysteries
All these subjects are and will always be a mystery to us. Dreams, the soul, space, spirits, the mind...
The guitar solo was played by my brother Paulo.

- Life after Death?
3 tracks based on various reports from the book Life After Life:

I (06) - Out-of-Body Experience
When someone suffers an accident and is in a coma and the astral body begins to separate from the physical body.

II (07) - Wandering Spirit
The astral body travel to the physical and astral world.

III (08) - The other side
The other side. Is there another world? Is it what we call Heaven? Is it an astral world?
The guitar solos were played by my brother Paulo.

Nice! Some part's felt a little like Pink Floyd mixed with The Alan Parsons Project. I liked it.

My band and I are currently writing a Progressive Metal song about dreams, called "Alternate Universe." Haha, I see you already wrote an album about similar topics.
"I wandered home though the silent streets
And fell into a fitful sleep
Escape to realms beyond the night
Dream can't you show me the light? "

I'll have to check out your songs. I'm currently writing songs myself(I'm actually in need of a keyboardist for a few songs. and pretty much a full band for the rest :lol: ).
Roxas: Did you have fun chatting with the ghosts?
Sora: You shouldn't call them "ghosts". Sure something seemed a little off but I'm sure they're still my friends

One of my biggest influences is Vangelis. So, a few years ago i played this Vangelis music from the 1492 movie soundtrack. I love this song. Vangelis must have composed it in his dreams. It's more or less this kind of sound that I hear in some of my dreams, mostly when i'm flying.

Maybe you both should open a REVERBNATION account and then upload your music there for all to here. Its free and you can link your videos from you tube plus more. You can even create phone apps with their widgets. I'm using it under Peoplexray website.Been on there from 2009.

The Wanderer is the 2nd album from 2001. Because i like movie soundtracks a lot, I decided to create a soundtrack imagining a story set in medieval times. Therefore, these songs all have a medieval, celtic and orchestral touch.
It's like the soundtrack of a dream that anyone could have. I think that all our dreams are authentic films and could have a soundtrack to illustrate them.

Gustavo Vieira - The Wanderer (2001)

02- Landscapes
03- A city by the mountains
