People 140 Add to collection

Composer and music producer from DaHouse Audio splits his time between São Paulo and Berlin and has a good portion of love for both

The Essential List: Lucas Mayer
Lucas Mayer is a Brazilian composer and music producer who runs DaHouse Audio in São Paulo and Berlin. He's been producing advertising and feature film soundtracks for 15 years, travelled around the world recording albums on the streets, which has been documented in his project 'Le Tour Du Monde' and screened on Discovery Channel Latin America. Amidst all of this, he produced ‘The Uncensored Playlist’, a campaign for Reporters Without Borders that won heavily at the LIAs, picked up Titanium and six more awards at the Cannes Lions, Gold and Grand Prix at Clio Festival, El Ojo de Iberoamérica, D&AD Impact, and more.
