Listen to the new song from Bruno Duprat – Quero Ir Não Sei (Want to Go Don’t Know)
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I was born in Boston, MA and went to Brazil when I was a child. I started studying classical guitar at 8 years old; then at 14 I started learning the electric-bass and studied voice; at 15 I started playing the piano; and at 17 I became a professional musician and started teaching music.
I took part in a band for 6 years as a pianist, bassist, and lead vocals. The band was called Lick, we recorded an original album and went to Vienna to gig it. I Went back to Brazil and started working with music production at Banda Sonora Artistic Productions which lasted three years.
I Made some scoring for animation in festivals, dubbing for cartoons, and also TV video commercials. I did lots of gigs in Brazil. Now I’m living in Boston, MA and working at Bristol Studios. I’m also working on my compositions.
What do you have coming up? What are some of the new projects we can expect to see?
I’m finishing this new project, the name is Quero Ir, Nao Sei (Want to go, Don’t Know). With just a few phrases for lyrics so the idea roots in the listener’s mind. With 11:30 minutes of length divided in three parts, the first part is Salludo al Sol.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
Salludo al Sol is the opening part of the piece called Quero Ir, Nao Sei (Want to go, Don’t Know). The idea is to make people think about how life came to earth and it is so sensitive to it’s own ways of living. This part has no lyrics to demonstrate the impact of the second part.
How does your music separate yourself from other artists and bands out there?
I have a great momentum to make people’s conscience about their existence grow. I’m a multi-instrumentalist.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
The biggest set back was the death of my grandfather Rogério Duprat. He really taught me most of what I know and was always a master, such as in music as in life. The bounce back was actually studying his life and his own paths.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
Artists need to have their feet on the ground at any time of their careers to have any kind of success and their minds on the stars.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Study the most you can and don’t let no one tell you what to do with your music. Also avoid doing drugs.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
For me, to play my music is the best thing, to offer what I really can in music, but technology today doesn’t let us musicians stay out of the websites that connect the world.
