Interested by the possible dialogues between popular and concert music, Gabriel is a composer that works with instrumental and electronic medias on questions of intertextuality and metaphors as creative forces, such as the musical modeling of poetic images evoked in a popular song. He is especially driven by ideals of reconstruction and recomposition, deformation and juxtaposition of these materials inspired by other creations.

He studied composition with Paulo Guicheney at the Universidade Federal de Goiás (Brasil), and obtained his master's degree from the CNSMD de Lyon (France), where he studied with Michele Tadini and attended the classes of Martin Matalon and François Roux.  He is currently a DMA candidate in composition at the University of Texas at Austin under the guidance of Januibe Tejera. He received the Funarte composition prize at the Biennial of Contemporary Brazilian Music,the Rainwater Innovation Grant, and was a finalist at Prix CIME/ICEM.

His music has been played by performers such as the Orchestra of the National Opera of Lyon, HANATSUmiroir, Line Upon Line Percussion, Soundmap Ensemble, Atelier xx-21, Olivier Stankiewicz, Alice Belugou, and at places and festivals such as MA/IN Festival (IT), ICMC (KR),

Ars Electronica Forum Wallis (SWI), SEAMUS (US), Lontano (BR), Plurisons (BR), CNMAT (US), Empreintes (FR), Electric LaTex (US).​ Gabriel also works in the production of new music, being one of the founders of the Música Íntima concert series in the city of Goiânia, whose productions since 2014 include the festival Goiânia Música Hoje, more than 20 concerts with local musicians and with groups such as Proxima Centauri (France), duo DOM, Quarteto Brasília Sax, and Ensemble Synthesis (Portugal), and also the release of five albums and three films.
