"Albery Albuquerque Gives a Voice to the Amazon"

If you thought singing animals were reserved for animated Disney movies, think again. Albery Albuquerque and his son Thiago study animal sounds of Northern Brazil and compose music in the voices of their subjects. It’s a serious academic endeavor. “With music, we are opening a giant door into the world of science,” explains Albery.

Albery’s research is in the field of transmorphic music, sounds derived through and beyond the forms that we perceive. Anything that can be measured in some way has a corresponding sound and can be expressed as music. Albery names architectural music, geometric music, cosmic music, and biologic music as examples. Within the category of biologic music, you can use patterns in nature or animal sounds as the base for musical expression. Albery works primarily with animal sounds to compose what is known among experts in his areas as Universal Transmorphic Music of Language.

The name sounds like the subject of a sci-fi movie, I know. And while Albery may personally believe in a number of unearthly phenomena, he conducts his research using strict scientific method. In fact, he holds a number of honorary degrees from universities across Brazil for his pioneering methods and has been invited to international conferences to present his work. - Sound and Colours


In the Alive Music of the Forest, Albery Albuquerque studied and transformed the sonorous spontaneous languages vocalized by the animals of the Amazonian forest, in latest musical schools - new musical genus, new forms of composition, counterpoint, harmonization, translation and adaptation - in this way the languages of the animals, had started to be culture, therefore the musician acquires the capacity to develop musical creative reasoning, from the related languages, originating an innovative and revolutionary work of creativity scientific music. Beyond innovative and educative, that this kind of music suggests, as much for preservation of Amazon nature, it is also a new form of ecological conscience that preserves with deep responsibility the universal nature and ecological patrimony (languages vocalized for the animals) through music, therefore the main direction of this method, he is in learning the forms of creation of the nature, and not in plagiarizing them. Being thus, we can compose, for example, a True Uirapuru (new musical sort) without plagiarizing or changing the language vocalized for the related bird. There are composers and musicians, who had plagiarized the vocalizations of the animals, that is, they had repeated the animal vocalization, and as Jean Jakes Rosseaux said: “it is a great nonsense to plagiarize the vocalizations of the animals, therefore it does not have human creativity in this act”. However, in 2000, Albery Albuquerque presents one another view in this area and discovers a revolutionary and latest musical way. In contrast to other musicians who only knew to plagiarize the vocalizations of the animals, or to coerce the animals so that they vocalized in writing studios, Albery Albuquerque discovered a musical infinite school, from the studies made for it, on the musical elements and the sonorous effect that constitute the language vocalized by diverse species of animals of the Amazon and the world, being this fact cited in the French magazine “Jazz Man” nº 115 joillet/aout 2005. It is important to stand out that until year 2000, it does not have any discographic description from any artist, on this subject, that is, doesn’t had in the market, for example, the musical sort of the True Uirapuru, the Mill Parrot of the Rouxinol do Rio Negro, the Spotted Jaguar etc, before year 2000. The millenarian coffer of contained creative revolutionary wisdom, for example, only in the vocalizations exercised for the species of Uirapurus-True, as well as also the pureness the beauty, the simplicity, the slightness and the musical originality of extracted, had taken in them to transform its form of vocalized sonorous expression, that is, its vocalized language communicative, in musical sort and consequently in an unusual musical culture, that is, the True Uirapuru, one of the biggest symbols of the Amazônia, becomes musical culture. Our interest in them is to reason musically, with the vocalized communicative language, in the animals, “to compose vocalizations”, without plagiarizing them, and also without deturpar its languages, thus with if can compose one bossa new, without plagiarizing, for example, Tom Jobim, João Gilberto, or any another one, however, without also misrepresenting bossa nova. The organization of the contained sonorous codes in the vocalizations of the animals, through systems, concepts and rules, lead in them a priori to create new musical schools. It observes for example, that the species of the Rouxinol bird of the Rio Negro (or any another species of animal), is in the truth a revolutionary musical school, therefore the related species for not having nor a commitment with the art and the culture human being, express in its vocalizations, a pure “musicality”, without accents of jazz or any another sort or musical school human being, becoming thus a new musical school. However this new and infinite musical language, that is a gigantic kaleidoscope, can be formatted, for all the types of market, being able to want, to use it knot Jazz, in the Rock, or other musical sorts. In addition, this kind of essentially ecological and environmentalist music for being brings in itself, beneficial effect to the mind to the body and the spirit of the man. Valley to point out that some international vehicles of national communication and when discovering the wealth and the potential of this new musical language, had produced and sets of documents special, on the work of Albery Albuquerque as the case of London BBC, Austria Culture Radio , a RFO – the Caiena Television, the Vatican Radio, the Internacional Magazine Geo Mirador nº 241 (internet), Jazz Man Magazine nº 115 joillet/aout 2005, and the Revista PZZ — Arte, Política e Cultura, produzida no Pará. The work of Albery Albuquerque, has not only called attention of professionals of the area of music and the communication, as well as of on scientists the zoology area (ornithologists, entomologists, etc.), as it is the case of the famous



Albery de Albuquerque Júnior has 52 years old is gradueted in Licenciatura Plena with Qualification in Music for the Universidade Do Estado do Pará (UEPA). He is professor, musician, researcher, composer, guitar player and lecturer. Amongst other studies developed for the related musician-researcher, we can detach the study of “Advanced Music”, that it is summarized in a world-wide unusual revolutionary method of musical wisdom. The method of the related research, developed his studies, on possible phenomena of comment, allows amongst other things, extracting the sounds (music) contained in objects, the movements of the things, or of any measurable times, as well as of languages also vocalized for species of animals of the Amazon and the world. With effect, through this method created by Albery Albuquerque and Thiago Albuquerque, it was possible to introduce extremely creative artistic and scientific processes and renews the universe of music, what it takes its apprentice to acquire a form of sensitivity wisdom and extraordinary musical conscience, which we call of Trans-Generality Conscience. Some kinds of the presented musical orders in this method: • Quantum music (Atomic) • Bionuclear music • Biomusic • Geometric music (plain, analytical and space Geometry) • Cosmic music • Architectural music, etc. These latest methods give birth to the Alive Music of the Forest that is a branch of the Biomusic.
