My name is Gustavo, I am a musician, guitarist and composer.
I have been in music for 40 years and it has been very hard, the life of a musician is very difficult, I have not really been able to fulfill my dreams… it was very difficult to buy a good guitar, survive playing the guitar and teaching classes. My failures and shortcomings cost me a marriage, financially I have not been a good father, I have not been able to give my children the best… many frustrations and depression, but I cannot leave music, I have lost many things in my life and yet even In the worst moments my music is always there. I haven’t seen my family in 3 years and I still haven’t met my grandson. I feel so so so useless, I don’t know how to do things right, I’m happy when I compose for my mother, my daughters, my son and my grandson… but it’s a fantasy world, I don’t function well in the real world, I’m broken…
My passion is composing, I do not have a defined genre or style since I have influences from flamenco, tango, jazz, classical and others. My music is instrumental based on the guitar. I want to record my music, I want to be able to make a professional recording, a well-produced album. Being able to do this would be the summary of my entire life.
It seems very strange to me to be doing this but anyway, thank you very much for taking the time to read about me.
For my project I need a good microphone, headphones, laptop. I can record the guitar at home… but I can’t bring musicians to my small apartment. Rent studio for rehearsal and recording. Session musicians for violin, flute, percussion, bass. Costs of editing, mastering, design, production, registration of musical rights.
I’m embarrassed to write this… but I feel tired, exhausted, I want to do it while I still have energy left.
This project or dream has a total cost ranging from 6,500 to 7,500 dollars.
