A space to Cultivate your Inner Garden
Since his undergraduate studiesManuel has been pursuing his dream of becoming a conductor, always advised by exceptional Maestros. Although the pandemic made him adjust his original plans, he has kept on refining his skills, and nowadays he is attending a very special program in Portugal: the Orquestra Costa Atlantica Conducting Academy.
Conducting has been the Polar Star for Manuel's musical aspirations.
In 2021 Manuel started exploring the new world of opportunities that the web3 could open to artists. Stepping away of his comfort zone, he started working in a composition for a collection of NFTs -Non Fungible Tokens- generated by new tech, and secured by Bitcoin. This team work with talented musicians and engineers has been a great experience, and Manuel looks forward to more adventures like this in the new Internet 3.0.
