My life is all about the passion of improvisation, from the early days...

Improvising is not acting randomly, it's composing in real time, knowing the rules and experimenting new ways beyond the scope of what you learned by practicing.

Ask me what is my job? I'm puzzled. I've never been able to choose between these 3 playgrounds that are Music, Software and Photography.

I take them all.

They seem to be divergent, I made them complementary!

Intuition and  creativity are the common threads that I cherish and keenly twine up to learn and improve my skills every day.

But..why Rixar?

Well... "x" in Portuguese is pronounced like "ch" in French, so it's my way to shorten my first name, besides, it's a wink to the time I lived in Brazil and to my Brazilian friends.



Being a multi-instrumentalist, please, don't ask me what instrument I prefer,

neither which one is easier to play...

I'd play all of them if I could in my lifetime, they require total dedication when the sky is your limit!

Guitar, Trumpet, Flugelhorn
