Thiago Nassif: EPICAC Tropical Banda + 1000 DJ Atabak


Rio-based singer and composer Thiago Nassif is of the exciting, progressive new generation of Brazilian songwriters.

EPICAC Tropical Banda is a performing group formed by Pedro Maia, Andre Sztutman, Victor Sardenberg, Lucas Rehnman and myself. The lectures are from the short story “EPICAC”, from the book Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut. It was the first story to feature the fictional EPICAC computer later used in Vonnegut’s novel Player Piano in 1952. It was published on 25 November 1950, for Collier’s Weekly, and reprinted in the February 1983 PC Magazine.

The story was read in portuguese by Victoria Vic, in kayowá (indigenous people of Brazil) reading and translation by Kunha Poty Rajegua and Ava Rendyju, in castellano by Alicia Martin and in Catalan by Cristina Talló i Chicón.

The show was recorded and edited in Asuncion by Pedro Maia at the studios : Guarani Soul , Entranhas and Lobo Recording (recording and final audio export by Nico Melgarejo)

Special thanks for helping with the show playlist and recordings to : BAdLovEkillS, Alicia Martins, Juvenal Hermes da Silva, Rossandra Cabreira, Pedro Palomino, Dahia Valenzuela Granada and Gustavito.
