Mario Raposo - Alien Ritual
Born in S.Miguel, Azores, Mario is an eclectic and a self-taught musician. His taste and influences encompass Jazz, Classic music, New Age, Electronic and film score composers. Since the early nineties, Mario has been creating music for film scores, commercial documentaries, advertisements, TV generics and CDs. A true product of his times, Mario does not hesitate in injecting into tradicional forms a more modern language. He has experimented mostly with fusion, i.e.: jazz; traditional Portuguese and new age (especially on documentaries); electronic pop, dance; and orchestrations through the use of synths and sample libraries.
