In his second solo album, the young 27 year old Paulistano, also part of the group 5 a Seco, takes his degree in film and his research as an actor to the last consequences to create a CD that should be heard as if you were watching a movie or a theatrical performance - a condition marked by an almost total interconnection between tracks.
Through constant unveiling of contrasting soundscapes, Para abrir os paladares, conceived by Vinicius Calderoni, and musical production by Tó Brandileone, is an invitation to dive into an erudite pop sound, very rich in timbers and textures, alternating consecrated instrumental formations with uncatalogued musical experiences: string quartet performing André Mehmari’s virtuous arrangement in Ponte Incerta Sobre Rio Selvagem to the edition of machinery and appliances noises that branded the percussion conduction of Aguarde sua Vez; From the horn section of a military band that appears in Juventude em Marcha to the duel waged between Lulinha Alencar’s accordion and Ricardo Herz’s violin in Impasse.
These sharp contrasts between sounds, far from creating a truncated or experimental CD are an expressive necessity imposed by the actual compositions. “We wanted to potentialize the dramatic strength of each song, it was hence natural that we took a direction where the surprises succeeded each other with velocity and the listener does not have the time to familiarize him or herself in a single soundstage. On the other hand, it is a song CD, and songs have a power of communication like very few other artistic expressions. I like to think, that therefore, the result of this CD is something amongst the Scandinavian pop and the Brazilian song – exploring everything that exists between both polarities” defines Calderoni.
