ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album was made as a remedy against bleak landscapes and rampant bitterness. It belongs to those who crave shelter from cynicism and isolation. It is called TERRA (Earth), like the song which is its first track. The feeling of belonging together with all peoples, all of nature, ought to take over us not through thought or reasoning but through feeling - which comes by listening to harmonious melodies, the soothing ancient tenderness of a maternal voice, the depth of tone found in some strings, the joyful clarity of piano notes and the grounded pulse of Brazilian percussion.

The songs are in Portuguese, except for the Remembrance (Until the End of Time), the last track - an English version written in Hong Kong on the evening of the day the tsunami of 2011 hit Japan. I could only imagine the despair of the survivors but knew enough about death to know that only time and wisdom can mitigate the sense of separation. All other Portuguese lyrics have an English translation on a booklet that comes inside the CD. Graphic work was done by Norwegian designer and photographer, Silje England.

While the compositions are Brazilian in their cultural origin, their inspiration and sustenance was harvested in four of the six continents where I have lived in the past 45 years - an experience that makes me a Citizen of the Earth. The musicians who collaborated with me in this project - from all corners of the planet - were chosen not only for their knowledge of music theory, technical skills and great talent, but also because they shared in my vision of Earth and, in doing so, have the spiritual capability of dispensing my remedy.


Notas sobre o Album

Fiz este álbum para servir de remédio contra paisagens desoladas e a amargura destramelada. Ele pertence àqueles que anseiam por um espaço fechado ao cinismo e ao isolamento. O nome do album é TERRA, como a canção que é a sua primeira faixa. O sentimento de fazer parte do conjunto dos povos, de toda a natureza, deve se apossar de nossa alma, sem passar pelo pensamento ou raciocínio. Minha receita é ouvir melodias harmoniosas, a doçura suave de uma voz antiga de mãe, a profundidade do tom que mora em algumas cordas, a clareza alegre de notas de piano, o pulsar telúrico da percussão brasileira.

As músicas são em Português, exceto Remembrance (Até o Fim do Tempo), a última faixa. No dia em que o tsunami de 2011 atingiu o Japão, a letra em inglês foi feita e dedicada aos aos sobreviventes. A letra original está no disco sob o nome de Lembrança, em memória de meu irmão Renato Pires Machado.

As letras de todas as canções, e sua tradução para o Inglês, estão no libreto que vem com o CD, pojetado pela designer e fotógrafa norueguesa, Silje England.

A origem cultural das composições é brasileira, e a inspiração foi colhida nos quatro dos continentes da terra onde vivi nos últimos 45 anos - uma experiência que fez de mim Cidadã da Terra. Os músicos que colaboraram que tocam no disco - de todos os cantos do planeta - foram escolhidos não só pelos seus conhecimentos de teoria musical, suas habilidades técnicas e seu grande talento, mas também porque compartilham da minha visão da Terra, tendo a capacidade espiritual para distribuir o remédio receitado.
