'Songs from Hurt is a troubling masterpiece. You will never listen to Songs from Hurt leisurely. It is art that makes you think, that makes you uncomfortable. It is also very moving, and that's where Iolini's talent lies. The relationship between word and sound, narrative and treatment, may bring forth references to musique concrete, but this album is more about documentaries and storytelling than about the music avant-garde.' ~ François Couture,
All Music Guide. Read full review.

'Iolini represents a new breed of electro-acoustic composer who puts his heart as well as his intellect into his work, and composes from a broad cultural perspective.' ~ Bill Tilland BBC Experimental Music Review. Read review

Country: UK
Released: 2005
Genre: Experimental, Art Rock, Radio Art, Documentary, Electronic

Worldwide release of Iolini's second solo album on British avant-garde music label ReR Megacorp.
"Robert transcends the divisions between music, documentary and radio art. The bulk of this CD is built around the extraordinary testimonies of aboriginal teenagers, prisoners and witnesses of a world in which the interviewees are continually told that they are surplus to requirements. All are set in musical frames - using both instrumental and environmental materials. The result is constantly gripping, scary and convincing. Truly remarkable and highly recommended. Sometimes a description can't do a record justice, you just have to hear it. Full texts and pictures". ~ Chris Cutler ReR Megacorp

Worldwide release of Iolini's first solo album on British avant-garde music label ReR Megacorp.

"Some will remember Iolini's two great small ensemble compositions from an earlier quarterly. This collection concentrates more on his (prize-winning) tape works and includes the great Hong Kong changeover cityscape 'City In Between', extracts from works about Israeli whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu and Edwin Armstrong (inventor of FM modulation) as well as other radio works and three chamber pieces based on African rhythms. Enormous variety". Chris Cutler ReR Megacorp
