I've been working on the music for "Feminine", a choreography by Paulo Ribeiro, since the beggining of May, but the most intense period was the second half of June. By the 6th of July the music was ready, featuring my wife Cathrin Loerke singing and the voice of Richard Zenith reading some texts that the portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa originnaly wrote in english. Richard is one of the great specialists on Pessoa's work and the texts i used were selected by him. Cathrin, apart from the singing, did all the graphic design work for "Feminine". The music has a flavour of the 70's rock, as requested by Paulo Ribeiro, and all instruments are played by myself. There is a very nice guitar solo "Santana style" that i realy enjoy! The cherry on the icecream is the song "Oh long before" (Cathrin singing) - couldn't it be a hit?
