It was in the cold morning of a sunny Thursday that met the dependencies of the ACIT, considered one of the biggest record companies of Brazil. Unlike the climate, the reception of the partner and producer Edison Campagna was warm. Wide smile and friendliness unmatched, Edi, as it is called by his friends, guided us through the corridor of checkerboard floor while talking, proud, on the trajectory of the company, which has more than 30 years in Porto Alegre and moved five to Caxias do Sul, RS, Brazil.
While cruising the heavy door Studio acoustics, we enter a true musical amusement park. EDI explained that we were lucky: “you came on the day that we take all the instruments of the cases to fan”. Between guitars, basses, guitars and violins, we were in search of equipment vintages, which make this unique Studio.
The first to be presented was a Rhodes electric piano manufactured in the 1960, whose keys have “felt” the weight of the fingers of César Camargo Mariano, one of the largest Brazilian pianists. “You see this mark here in the corner? He accidentally burned with cigarette! “, reveals, laughing.
Owner of a peculiar timbre, the model was quite used in the decades of 1960 and 1970, primarily by jazz musicians. But rock and roll also brings your sound in several successes, such as Get Back of The Beatles (with Billy Preston on piano), Riders On The Storm from The Doors and Sheep of Pink Floyd.
Citing the years 1970, the Studio offers models of German brand microphones Neumann, considered one of the best in the world in the field, and your fellow Sennheiserwith the MKH 416model, better known as “The Hollywood Mic”, for being a favorite in movies, trailers and commercials. Also we come across an effect processor Lexicon reverber manufactured in 1978, which was very popular at the time and let any sound with “pinch oitentista”.
And calling attention to your unconventional color, the legendary pink battery rested brilliant in the corner of the room with its original metal Made in Japan. The brand instrument TAMAGranstar model of 1986, was used on recordings by various artists, “including by the [American drummer] Marky Ramone [of the band the Ramones] when he was in Brazil”, said coach Rogerio Henquer audio.
The room is large and involves complete bands, orchestras and choirs. The ceiling height of over 5 meters high combined with the walls don’t allow better wood parallel capture of sound waves. “It’s a question of Physics”, smiled the engineer Edu rabbit. Of course, all of this structure is coupled with extensive knowledge of the professionals who work for years in the Studio and to modern software, as the production of audio system Pro Tools.
Any resemblance to the Abbey Road is not mere coincidence. Edi has recorded himself on the world’s most famous Studio, located in London, and was inspired by the proposal to merge the analog with digital. With that, you can offer a retro-sounding artists who choose this style, while the current resources allow a result of excellent quality.
At the end of the visit, the wife and partner/founder Ivete Campagna reported that the company emerged in the early 1980, realizing that local artists resorted to the Rio-São Paulo axis to record their work. Initially based in Porto Alegre, RS, the seal then realized your image as “the mark of the South” by launching big names in music, such as Dareen & Carlos Magrão, Gaucho’s frontier, Pedro Ortaça, Lima Family, Tequila Baby, among others.
The clock struck almost 1:00 in the afternoon. Our meeting lasted longer than expected, because the shared stories about each instrument made our minds fluctuate by the golden years, triggering a hot feeling of nostalgia. Pause for the last shot and we parted with the certainty that there are still professionals in the brazilian recording industry who consider music a work of art.
