Marisa Mountain gave us the album in July doors, full of new songs that speak to its universe and function as an escape from the chaos in which we are currently inserted, from pandemic and closure. But the intimate experience with the singer did not stop there. On October 22, Globoplay released the special Doors and windows, which tells details about the album and the artist’s creative process.
Produced by the program team conversation with bial, the project is part of Conversa.doc – the nucleus of documentaries from Pedro Bial’s program, who has already mentioned names like Arnaldo Antunes (Arnold, Sixty) and Erasmo Carlos (Erasmus 80) – and the concept was conceived by director Gian Carlo Bellotti.
Doors and windows immerses the viewer in Marisa’s reality for about an hour and twenty minutes. She sings alone, sometimes accompanied only by her guitar or piano, and remembers artists and references that marked her trajectory, rediscovering affective and musical memories. The location of the documentary, an abandoned palace in the Alto da Boa Vista neighborhood, in Rio de Janeiro, makes everything more sentimental and playful. The environment was decorated with extensive vegetation – a metaphor to show that life resists confinement – and paintings by artist Marcela Cantuária (creator of the visual concept of doors).
Marisa, who defines herself as “singer” (singer and composer), tells how names like Rita Lee and Dona Ivone Lara, great women of music, were important in her artistic development – Beautiful boy, for example, was one of the first melodies that he challenged on the guitar. She also mentions Tim Maia’s soul music, Cassiano’s compositions, Moraes Moreira and Novos Baianos’ harmony and even Portela’s rhythm as points that are not left out of her creations and are present in many of the hits played in his career, both solo and with the Tribalistas group.
when singing Calm, to improve, How much time e doors, tracks from the new album, the artist is alongside names such as Pretinho da Serrinha, Dadi Carvalho and Davi Moraes. The film also features moments from interviews previously granted by Marisa to Pedro Bial and Ricardo Calil, and scenes from the recording of the CD in the studio.
Each moment of the documentary is ideal for understanding the construction of Marisa’s career and the path traced to the doors, which, despite the timing of its release, turns out to be much more about hopes for a new future than about today and the past. It ends with totally yours on the piano, bringing us the certainty that, with each new release, she continues to present us with pure poetry and is one of the greatest singers and songwriters in Brazil.
