Combining magic and retrofuturistic concepts, the Trapézia project launches the version of “Ever Dream” by Nightwish. The artist, who recently released her conceptual debut EP entitled ‘ECILA’, garners much praise from the critics. The song “Ever Dream” was released in 2002 as the lead single from the band’s fourth studio album, ‘Century Child’, which turns 20 in May.
“I really enjoy Nightwish’s songs, without using lyrical singing as they normally do when interpreting songs in this style, I like the challenge of giving a new look to the music, always trying to leave my identity in the interpretation. I really like singing ‘Ever Dream’ and ‘Nemo’ for example, even though some Nightwish fans don’t really like these songs because they don’t classify them as complex songs to perform”, comments Thaís Lyrica.
Currently Thais takes singing lessons with Alírio Netto (current vocalist of Shaman) and has developed her technique of contemporary belting. The idea in “Ever Dream” is to bring the voice as close to the speech as possible (this is the concept of the belting technique), and the big challenge in this song, as in “Nemo”, is the big jump of tonality change at the end. of the song and this makes the song interesting. “I was inspired by the way Floor Jansen sings ‘Ever Dream’, in the classic performance at Wacken 2013 and it’s a great reference for which way I want to go, Floor Jansen herself says that ‘Ever Dream’ is a high performance song when I live because of this vocal difficulty. Tarja Turunen’s interpretation follows the line of lyrical singing, which I love, but this time I set myself as a challenge to use everything I’ve learned about contemporary belting, I studied lyrical singing for a short period and, for me, it’s the most easy and within my comfort zone to sing ‘Ever Dream’ or any other song that follows this line. I really like to overcome my own barriers”, concludes Thaís Lyrica.
An authorial project of melodic metal, Trapézia was founded by artist Thaís Lyrica, who has been in contact with music from a very young age, influenced by her father, who was a musician. She began her singing studies at age 16, but she only started to dedicate herself to singing lessons in 2018. The universe of authorial music happened by chance in the life of Thais, who in 2019 after enrolling in an authorial music competition, in which she decided to participate, just a week before the closing of registrations – a moment in 2019 when she revealed her musical talent to everyone, including family members who, until then, did not know about her musical journey.
Trapézia brings the more artistic side of Thais, who has always been very shy and reserved and who found in her musical project a way to express herself and, to overcome great personal barriers that until then, seemed to be unattainable goals, Thaís Lyrica believes that dreams are possible, but dreaming is not enough! She considers herself a dreamer without limits, but you have to have a lot of determination for all these dreams to come true! Thais has a degree in Fashion Design and has an alternative fashion brand, with the same name as its musical project.
In her first musical work, the artist Thais Lyrica uses all her knowledge of fashion training to insert a retrofuturistic visual concept into her music. With the release of ‘ECILA’, the artist presents us with a fantastic world inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the work of Lewis Carroll, where every detail, from the letters to the costumes were designed and made by Thais. With an authentic and steampunk look, Trapézia takes you on a fantastic journey into the world of ECILA. “ECILA’ is the realization of a childhood dream and I really want to continue telling stories through my music”.
