Brutus Begins is a project by psych-folk artist Ricardo Temporao. The Hamilton based musician resamples and processes elements of nature, acoustic instruments and synthesizers to create a sonic landscape that blurs the lines between the real and the reconstructed.   The songwriting and storytelling remain the heart of a world that mirrors our own - commenting on our vices, ambitions and ultimately our evolution. 

Brutus Begins released "Uncanny Valley" to critical praise. It's been described as "...a juggernaut of a debut", "phenomenal", "as addicting and inviting as a soma hit" and " of the most compelling and high quality debuts we've heard in a decade".


Currently Ricardo and his team are in production for his next release.
