ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dlaivison began his studies e developed his musical talent yet as a child through piano classes. Disciplined and perfectionist, because of his parents’ influence, from early age he developed the bias of musical composition in a natural and intuitive way, as well as many times through his dreams. He grew a refined taste over classical music, new age, going through the strands of progressive rock to electropop, but always searched to maintain a modern and timeless characteristic. Dlaivison from this point already begun to build his musical identity. Always fond of technology, in his personal studies and in his personal profile, great artists who emerged with the differential of new musical technology, as sound synthesizers, since the 80s already were a part of his influences and inspirations. The idea of using technological resources becomes only a way to stand the thought about an idea and make tangible the sonority of his inspirations in the form of music. Today his musical identity as an artist reveals another’s thoughts, and confirms his timeless way to compose. His music brings back the most pure pattern of sounds and instruments through technology.

"Sign of Us" is the debut album by Brazilian electronic artist, Dlaivison (Ribamares Silva), and what an impressive first album it is! Strongly influenced by Vangelis and Jean Michel Jarre, the album has a very powerful and dynamic sound that often goes beyond what we usually call “new age” music. With strong bass and drums creating propulsive rhythms on several of the ten tracks, I would think much of this music would appeal to a younger audience as well as those of us who are a bit more (ahem!) “seasoned.” A few tracks lean toward the ambient and space music categories, but overall, this is an amazing and varied musical journey. From the liner notes of the CD, Dlaivison says: “Music has the sublime power to create a parallel universe, allowing experiences on many different levels, be it physical, mental, and even transcendental ones. Sign of Us was composed with the idea of inviting the listener to participate in this experience, to reflect on that connection and transcend to a new world.”

Dlaivison started piano lessons at the age of 8, but was always drawn to electronic music because it helped him understand what he wanted to do with his life. His goal was to be a piano/synthesizer player or a technologist (electronic engineer, computer scientist) and, at least for now, he is doing both with a full-time job as an electronic engineer for a US-based company in Brazil. The album was recorded in Dlaivison’s home studio over a two-year period and was then mastered by Felipe Fantoni at NaTrilha Produces studios.

"Sign of Us" begins with “Dreams,” an invitation to a journey of reflection on what we perceive as reality and how we shape it. A variety of electronic sounds dance around a driving beat and draw us into the music. “The Wind’s Valse” is a musical comparison of wind and human breathing, and the strength and lightness of both. “‘Belle’” is an homage to all women and to the female universe.” Flute, keyboards and a gentle rhythm gracefully suggest feminine characteristics in a very beautiful way. “Calyx” is a favorite. The driving beat sends the magical melody joyfully soaring in a celebration of mankind’s total connection to the Universe. Love it! “Heroes” is dedicated to those who inspire us to be better people - to all of the everyday heroes. The first part of the piece is very ambient, but builds to include more orchestral sounds as well as a strong drum beat - another favorite. “Amazon” reflects on the connection between man and nature by using a fusion of electronic, human, and nature sounds. It’s quite an interesting combination and it’s easy to let your focus drift between the various elements of the piece. “The Journey” is the closing track, but at a bit over eight minutes, it is a musical journey of its own. Peaceful and soothing, it has a driving beat behind the ethereal voices and compelling melodies.

Dlaivison brings a new and original voice to contemporary music - something that is always welcome! Expect to hear a lot more about this exceptional album! Highly recommended!

Review from Journeyscapes Radio
Sign of Us is the debut album from Brazilian-based electronic music composer Dlaivison Ribarmares Silva. Introduced to the world of music at a young age, Dlaivison took piano lessons as a child while acquiring a refined taste for classical, new age, progressive rock and electro-pop over the years. Inspired by a theme of “signatures” or “signs” which are said to be universally present among everything, each song title includes a glyph-like symbol next to them, while the album’s liner notes detail brief explanations for each composition and the universal concepts for their inspiration. Comprised of ten tracks spanning just under an hour, Sign of Us was recorded on an array of electronic music equipment and features guest drummer, Arthur Rezende, on one composition. Throughout the album, I’m frequently and pleasantly reminded of both Jean-Michel Jarre and the early 1990’s German “ambient-techno” artist Cosmic Baby, while additionally, the music’s often whimsically classical nuances recall a bit of Danny Elfman.

The opening piece, “Dreams”, is a highly energetic space-trance number characterized by bubbly synths and digital effects, which immediately bring-to-mind that of a retro-futuristic cosmic disco-hall full of bouncing laser lights. Slowing things down a notch is “The Wind’s Valse”, an enchantingly surreal and chimerical piece that makes me think of a carnival procession – its breezy, waltzing motion deftly mimicking the capricious nature of the wind. Following next in a similar mode is “Belle”, a bewitching piece with a renascence flair that weaves flute, strings and harpsichord among a lush electronica soundscape. “Calyx” revs up the energy again with more Jarre-esque chord progressions and a dance-techno rhythm, as its dreamy piano riff recalls a bit of Robert Miles. Also notable is “Angels” – the album’s euphoric peak, which boasts a colorfully cheerful dance arrangement that incorporates more vintage aspects of HI-NRG and Eurobeat.

Refreshingly engaging and innovative, Sign of Us draws its stylistic influences from many decades and divisions of electronic music, resulting in an album that will likely appeal to numerous listeners ranging from fans of melodic trance, to electronic space, to fantasy/sci-fi soundtrack music. An enjoyably welcome debut, I can’t wait to see what’s hopefully next on the horizon for this emerging artist!
