Story

Javier Ramon Brito is a Composer, Sound Healer and Recording Artist of Spiritual Healing Meditation Music. He describes himself as an intuitive musician. A firm believer in the healing power of music, he wonders not why musicians are often compared to medical doctors. “I am like a psychologist, because I work with people’s emotions and dreams”, he jokes. “Or like a kinesiologist, because I believe music can balance the meridians of the human body”, he adds.

What is music to you? What does it give you?

As Ludwig van Beethoven said, “Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy”. And to me, as to Pythagoras, music is not merely entertainment or amusement, but therapy for actuating the healing power that exists within us all: Life Energy.

What is your music dream?

To contribute beautiful music to the world.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

Two things. There is much disharmony in the world, and music is the highest expression of harmony, so I make music. There are many lies in the world, so I write books and articles to empower people.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

There are many. From classical to the Beatles, the Carpenters, Chicago, Jazz and pop music.

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

I like the classical masters (Beethoven, Mozart, Bach, Chopin, Schubert, Handel, Porpora and many others), New Age music, Celtic music, cinematic music, jazz music and pop music.

What inspires you to make music?

Metaphysics, spirituality, nature, love and joy.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

That music and sound, scientifically and intuitively used, can heal and align the frequencies in people’s bodies, minds and souls.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I rarely perform in public. I am a composer.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

I guess the models to distribute their music could be improved. In the old times the radio was the main way to showcase music. Now it is the internet, streaming sites and social networks. But there is a need for good music-specific social networks. That's why I searched and found Drooble.

What do you think of Drooble?

I am finding it very innovative and helpful. It would be nice if, in addition to its music reviews, it could also alow musicians to offer between them affordable mastering services, music video making, music conversion to different pitches (like 432 hz, 528 hz etc.) and all sorts of technical stuff for those who are not tech savvy.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Marketing. In today's world, in addition to their natural talents, composers and musicians have to be also sound engineers to properly record and master their pieces in different formats, video editor geeks to make nice music videos, and tech savvy webmasters to manage their websites, keeping up with boring, technical SEO stuff. Now the trend revolves around apps, but you have to be very tech savvy to develop one. As if that was not enough, on top of that musicians have to spend many hours per day in social networks in an effort to have an online presence or to engage in marketing strategies. It is very time consuming and it goes to the detriment of your creativity and productivity as an artist. Just imagine, if Beethoven, Bach, Mozart and all the great classical musicians had to be tweeting, checking Facebook, posting stuff on Instagram, making and editing videos for youtube, and so on everyday, they would not have produced as many beautiful compositions as they did, but merely 5% or 10% at the most of what they thankfully did for us.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I try to always support the musicians that play around in places that I visit, including parks, etc.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

A lot of technical qualities, as I explained above. Sound engineer, video maker and editor, webmaster, marketing strategist, etc.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

It would be unfair to name just a few. There are hundreds of very talented musicians out there. And Drooble is a wonderful place that allows people to discover them.
