Brutus Begins is a solo project by Ricardo Temporao, a Portuguese-Canadian musician writer, and director currently based in Toronto. Elements of folk are resampled and synthesized, blurring the lines between what is real and reconstructed and challenging notions of what is natural.
With influences from Leonard Cohen to Tame Impala and Shuggie Otis to T-Rex, Brutus Begins lives on the edge of a sonic “uncanny valley”. The buttons, knobs and wires twist and bleed into something almost human. Where the copper pierces the flesh is where Brutus Begins.
The first album by Brutus Begins, “Uncanny Valley” will be released in 2016.
