Historical Figure Comes To Life
Andrea Pizzo And The Purple Mice
Uniquely historical context once again lights up the unrivaled and thoughtful sound of Andrea Pizzo and The Purple Mice, as their latest double-single release ADA presents the musings of a lesser-discussed yet hugely impactful historical figure.
Dedicated to mathematician and scholar Ada Byron, the project celebrates someone understood to have been the first programmer of human history, and makes fine use of vocals from Silvia Criscenzo to draw the listener in to this story.
ADA is fantastic, increasingly uplifting, gripping and enlightening, and the perfect title-track for this short yet striking release.
Second in line comes the fairly self-explanatory The Boys From Silicon Valley. Here we get a more electronic-rock ambiance of soaring synths and guitars, before that now familiar voice emerges for another almost freestyle-like progression and story that’s both informative and motivationally passionate.
The lyrics of both songs included in ADA were inspired by thoughts and quotes from the brightest minds of Silicon Valley, as well as linked to the ideas of philosopher Ayn Rand, “for whom human ingenuity and commitment are fundamental elements , necessary for the achievement of individual happiness.”
