Leo Alves Vieira:
Hi, i'm a brazilian composer and instrumentalist. These are few of my electroacoustic, acousmatic or whatever label you can put on it, tracks. All i can say is that they were made very truthfully, with much feeling. The sound material come from acoustic sources (Guitar, Clarinet in Bb) or they are made by computer synthesis softwares
