‘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.

‘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
