The Turin collective Project-TO, composed by Riccardo Mazza and Laura Pol, after exploring with the successful double debut album in 2016 "The White Side, The Black Side", the duality between a more open style with Big Beat sounds in the style of Chemical Brothers (The White Side) and a more techno-ambient mood (The Black Side). After declaring in 2017, with the album "Black Revised", that it belonged to the dark side by producing a dark tones vinyl album, electronic, with a huge use of synthesisers, now presents its third IRO work. IRO in Japanese means "colour" and the tracks making up the album, which are 6 as in every Project-TO release, a sort of symbolic number, introduce the vocal element through the Japanese language. After choosing the black and white of the previous albums, which are only instrumental, it is the voice that represents the chromatic turning point. The tempo is pulsating, always marked by a deep, hammering speaker, while the sounds are more experimental and evolve continuously, synthesising with voices to turn into a pure noise, of which stylistic references can be found in the latest works by Alva Noto, Bjork, Andy Stott and Beytone. Produced and recorded in Turin at Riccardo Mazza’s new Experimental Studios, one of the most technologically advanced studios in Europe for experimental and electronic music, IRO is inspired by haiku, a poetic composition that started in Japan in the seventeenth century. Among the reflections that Roland Barthes wrote in his book "The Empire of Signs", haiku is not a rich thought reduced to a short form, but a short event that suddenly finds its exact form; it has the purity, sphericity and emptiness of a musical note itself. Each track in the album is dedicated to a different haiku, where the theme of the seasons is characterised by at least one word representing them, from which research on the musicality of the verse starts. The pure essentiality of these poems, which express concepts and images referring to nature and semantic reversals giving rise to a leap in the imagination between apparently distant ideas and images, is also the inspiration behind the work of Laura Pol who, mixing photography and video, has created a language that is an integral part of the project for the new Live Audio-Visual Project-TO, just as in the two previous albums.
