Alexandre Kassin, Moreno Veloso, and Domenico Lancelotti form a music trio, which can very well have already been called an organization, if it weren’t for the actual fact that they, in rather unorthodox style, focus on every individual group member rather than the group like a device. Thus, in the release from the trio’s 1st Compact disc in 2001, with Moreno Veloso as vocalist, they known as themselves Moreno+2. In 2003, it had been Domenico’s consider stand in the limelight, as well as the trio known as itself Domenico+2. Subsequently, using their third Compact disc launch in 2006, the trio used the name Kassin+2. Whatever they contact themselves, Kassin, Domenico, and Moreno attended to be observed among the hippest & most innovative songwriting teams from the so-called contemporary MPB from Rio de Janeiro. Numerous variants, their music is dependant on the mixture of bossa nova and MPB with contemporary pop and electronica. From the three, Moreno Veloso (who obviously is the child from the very much celebrated Brazilian music story Caetano Veloso) offers proved to are a symbol of a far more “severe” and organic sort of music, while Domenico comes with an aptitude for irony and a clear interest for going after experimental seems. Kassin+2 lies someplace in between both on that level. The Moreno+2 record was dominated by Moreno’s classical guitar and sensitive yet dramatic tone of voice. Traditional and acoustic MPB was blended, or clashed in the event that you will, with theremin, digital percussion, and sound files from a portable gaming, with an frequently surprisingly captivating impact because of this. The Compact disc premiered by David Byrne’s Luaka Bop. For the Domenico+2 record, the original MPB took a lot more of the back seat with regards to contemporary electronica and a higher amount of experimentalism. The record also offered short performances by illustrious performers such as for example Caetano Veloso, Marisa Monte, Gilberto Gil, and Bebel Gilberto. After that, in 2006, with Kassin as frontman, the record Futurismo premiered (for unclear motives in three different variations, with japan release being the very best and most intensive one). Kassin, Domenico, and Moreno also toured with vocalist Adriana Calcanhotto, after that contacting themselves Adriana Calcanhotto+3, and Kassin is becoming among Brazil’s most praised manufacturers, working with many of the country’s most renowned artists.
