Electronic music produced by Aldo Brizzi with live vocals expanded beyond melancholy female voice by Reis.
It developes into a wide range of electronic or electronic-influenced music and combines elements of trip hop, IDM, and classical into world music rhythms such as bossa nova and axé music. Tempo varies from quite slow in downtempo to very fast in breakcore-derived and drum’n bass (a sort of bass without drums) styles. Drum sequences tend to be complex.
Melodies and harmonies create a rich and tense sound that emphasizes the erotic, mystic and poetic themes of the lyrics and their realities, stranger than dreams.
Reis live presence is etheral and hypnotic. She sings lyrics in English, Portugues, Italian, French, with the charme of her typical Brazilian voice.
