TRIZ is a duo recently formed by Beatriz Pessoa and Pedro Branco. Influenced by Brazilian music and the new indie pop, this is a musical project that seeks to unite the acoustic universe with the electronic domain, exploring Pessoa’s voice with Pedro Branco’s guitar and synthesizers. TRIZ also marks the beginning of Beatriz Pessoa’s new recording work, an album that will be produced by the singer-songwriter Marcelo Camelo.
