Last year, DaHouse was celebrated as one of the most innovative audio production companies of the industry. With studios in both São Paulo and Berlin, the company now announces it's expansion and new crew members. Silvinho Erné, former head of production, joins Lucas Mayer and Cassiano Derenji as full-time Partner. The team also welcomes Larissa Miranda, former staff of LeCube animation studios and AWAKE production company, as Europe's Executive Producer. "Cassiano has been my friend since high school and our company is the result of friends coming together to experiment with new sounds and hanging out in the studio. There is no greater feeling than adding to this partnership a long time friend such as Silvinho. We used to jam together since the 90's and also played together in a band in the 2000", says Lucas Mayer as he welcomes his long time friend as a partner.
Silvinho has been a house name for over three years, being also director of production and Producer in Porto Alegre, pianist for the acoustic tour of ‘Reação em Cadeia’ in 2015 and also Co-producer and composer for the album Mind Catalog Vol.1: Concept do SevenLox, Guinea Bissau. During his time working for Dahouse, he was part of the company's main projects and campaigns such as The Uncensored Playlist, a project in which the goal was to share news through music, aiming for a population living in countries where news were censored. The campaign earned the Titanium Lion during the Cannes Lions Festival, first prize at the most prestigious advertising festival in Germany (ADC Festival), and also six gold awards, four silver awards and a Grand Prix.
The latest and celebrated DaHouse work is the recently released album ONZE (unreleased songs of Adoniran Barbosa), which showcases unpublished samba songs written by Adoniran Barbosa during the years 1961-1980 and interpreted by artists such as Elza Soares, Zeca Baleiro, Rubel and ÀVUÀ, among others. The album was entirely recorded during the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic and all musicians were recorded remotely. ONZE was produced by Lucas Mayer and co-produced by Silvinho Erné. "The sound mixing was also done by our long time friend Rodrigo Deltoro. He is one of DaHouse's sound engineers", explains Lucas Mayer. The executive production was signed by Deltoro and Cassiano Derenji.
To Derenji, the expansion of the team is part of the continuous effort to expand the production company. "Our goal is always to continue growing, to branch out, not necessarily financially, but mostly in service. Our aim is to expand and to enhance our reach in Europe's market. The year 2020 should have been a great year, but we are saving our strength for the next", says Derenji.
Larissa Miranda has worked for the Barry Company, Trator Films and also LeCube, an award winning animation studio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, catering to the international market. Upon her return to Brazil, Miranda returned to the production of live-action movies at the Awake Film, an arm of Ocean Film company. Miranda has over twelve years of experience in the entertainment sector, producing to different media outlets such as radio, broadcasting TV, Animation and Live-Action production companies. Now, the Brazilian producer's new mission is to venture out in the European market, opening up new opportunities within the European industry, mainly in Berlin, where DaHouse has been based for two years. She carries with her a long list of achievements with awards in festivals such as Cannes Lions, Clio, Ciclope, NY Festivals, CCSP, Promax, amongst others.
