Wind Vessel

The free space between classic and jazz

A game with color

João Raineri is characterized by the unbroken will to first create and then destroy each of his compositions. In his music every band member has the power to rule. The Brazilian drummer strives to make live music pleasant and uncomfortable at the same time, completely ignoring expectations. In his eyes, beauty and ugliness are no different. His music can be described in many ways, inspiration from everywhere, following the rules, breaking the rules … all just hollow words!

“I love to transform stories to music. My job is to turn letters into musical notes. Experimentation is more important than perfection.”

The band Wind Vessel is the canvas on which the drummer and composer João Raineri lives out his enthusiasm for risk and experimentation. He paints fine lines, pours everything over, tears the picture and sews it back together, or not.
