My first musical instrument was a synthesizer, that is if one excludes a small wooden box metalophone.
Right on the first day exploring the synth (a  korg MS20) i was thrilled knowing that i could input and process an external signal. I still remember grabbing a cassette by Klaus Schulze, Moondawn, in fact; i started filtering the sound that went from the tape-deck to the MS20 (sort of like a DJ, making his living with someone else's music, right?)
Nothing worth talking about came out of it, but still, that moment of the first electronic experiment was also the first time i lost the instructions manual out of sight.
That moment precisely defines my composing method: NO manual.

NØ manual

A toaster?  A microwave? A car? No... it's super synth !KORGMS20

p.mir , produce r !
I'm proud of having produced the first independently released CD in portugal, and doing it with the artist in a tiny studio in a small portuguese town. No booth, no auto-locators, smpte, nothing... not even air conditioning!
I remember the vocals were recorded with a Shure SM58 that didn't have the grilled protective ball.
Every sound less than 3 inches from the mic would make explosive sounds that would submerge even the most dynamic kick. Solution: vocals were recorded with the singer holding a protective cloth (from the type we find in hi-fi speakers) in front of him.
No one could spot the singers face but the vocals were recorded.
The CD was released as the #1 CD, ever, in Portugal.
It'll always be.

p.mir w/band!

I started infinite-e back in 1993. Having met the singer Alexandrina while she was recording with a folk band. The voice was perfect for my prospective band.

Something between...

...medieval and techno

Jingles were the test. Later in that year we made a first EP. «Nostalgia».
We gave nearly 500 copies at local radio-stations in Portugal. Traveled 3000 miles without ever crossing the border just for the EP's promotion.
Talk about promotion!
 
We achieved airplay all over the country, and of course, concerts were showing up.
The next year a CD: Alexandrina's Teknodance Logiktrance.
Major hit. 9 eurodance songs in english, one in arab!
Concerts all around.
Then, in 1996 the first label interested in our music. A small backyard label releases the first infinite-e CD, featuring Alexandrina. You can find the cover for that album in this site!     
That was «Grab Me» and there's even a bootleg EP that features an heavily bashed ARP Odyssey !
 
A rare infinite-e sticker. Download it !
p.Mir ! the arts
Cinema.
Personal favourites:
Blade Runner, Betty Blue 37: 2 le matin, Brainstorm, L'ete meurtrier, Det Sjunde inseglet, Metropolis & Contact.
Then comes photography. A bunch of Canon cameras, a collection of lenses, a 6x6 Voigtlander IIIe... and i'm done.
Sold some photos to lisbon newspapers, working as a freelancer, and then...
...Video
i learned to comprehend it @ IADE, with Roberto Lestinge.
It made definite changes in me, even musically.
I can't make a record without including picture-dependent themes.
A lot of my music needs image in order to be clearly understood.
Even the videos i produce are sort of a remastering of my own music.
Therefore, sinthesizers and videocameras are tools for one single artform.
 
Painting.
New earthlings.

Electronic. The most abstract artform produced by the most abstract instruments. Multi-use multi-media.
The computer, my converging musical instrument is also good to write this text.
It would never occur to me to write with a guitar.
Abstract and unexpected. A load of transistors and condensers, and who knows what else, is capable of music making.
The ideal music.
It'll be reproduced all over the world by other loads of transistors and condensers and who knows what else.
THE electronic music: Krafwerk, Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno, Biosphere,
whatever will be, will be.......
