Influences: Ricardo Donoso

On the eve of a new album.

Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Ricardo Donoso is a musician whom has drawn great influence from the musical culture amidst which he was raised. Now based in Boston he has worked tirelessly as an independent producer and recording artist having released music on the likes of Hospital Records, Digitalis, Further Records and Denovali. His own musical tastes are broad and far reaching, this has helped him to formulate a distinctive style, a gracious blend of both light and dark - a meeting of worlds and frequencies. 

This month marks the release of a new album on Denovali from the burgeoning producer. "Calibrate" sees him push beyond the stereotypical confine of his comfort zone, challenging an experimental array of new material and sounds. 

We invited him to guide us through his own musical experience and listening preferences.

Mr.Bungle - Carry Stress In The Jaw

The gateway drug for me. This record “Disco Volante” opened the floodgates for me as a teenager and i still consider it my favorite record due to the impact it’s had. This tune is what brought me in - Jazz, Death Metal, extreme technical proficiency, humor and insane arrangements. This is what set me down the track of always looking for what else could you do with music?
