Joaquim is a music producer, composer of more than 4 thousand samples that will be part of the next albums of the band, besides vocalist and guitarrist of the band. He is also the responsible for the administrative matters of the band. Joaquim is a musician since he was a kid. Over 20 years of a long career. After long and hard years working on this groundbreaking project, the first EP, "Silence Of The Pain" was released in 2014. Heard in more than 90 countries, the album reached very high levels of popularity on all major streaming platforms in the world! "Silence Of The Pain" was Top1 of the fourth largest player on web, Pleimo.com, for over than six months and was on Top Charts for over two years.
On Reverbnation, Under Control stayed on the charts for a long time and entered the ranking of the 40 best bands in the world.
Joaquim counted with the collaboration of great and renowned musicians to record his songs. All material was produced in Brazil and also has two singles, "Another Hard Dark End" and "News Of Tomorrow", which were not produced in the HQ of the band, due to health issues of the former bassist of the band. He is owner of the area where was built the HQ. Now, Under Control must find a new home.
The concept of "Project": Under Control, like any other band needs to produce music videos for its songs. Due to that, Joaquim decided to hire a partner, still in 2014, to produce a music video to the song "Window From The Sky". The partnership is now over but a great result was left for the future; A heap of ideas and characters, for the production of a series in animation that will be published in the networks of the band, or even an animated film. The idea is still at an embryonic stage but will certainly have a long life in a near future. However, music is our goal.
Our biggest concern is with the quality of our songs and in understanding how our music can be a source of inspiration for people all over the world.
