I've always wanted to be a musician, and one day I woke up and realized I already was one! I studied classic guitar when I was a teenager, studied the pandeiro with 3 generations of teachers, and picked up keys and electric guitar along the way. Since 2014 I've been producing my own songs, experimenting, learning, and making a lot of mistakes, mostly driven by self-imposed arbitrary deadlines and the urge to create and share what's inside of me.
In 2019 I was able to finish 50/90 successfully for the first time, mostly by producing songs on the Teenage Engineering OP-Z, a synthesizer-sequencer-sampler that's the size of a remote control. This year I'll probably use it again for most of my compositions.
The name Elesimo means 11th in a made up language. I play in a one-person band called "The Fishermen & the Priestess".
