From the outset, Ada is a laid-back and relaxed song that Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice have performed perfectly. In this post, I will share with you all of the best aspects of Ada and explain why you need to add it to your music library, playlist it and follow Andrea Pizzo on Spotify. I will also say where and how I believe the entire production can be improved.
Who Are Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice?
Andrea Pizzo was born in Albenga (SV) in\ 1977. Apart from his music, Andrea also enjoys science-fiction films. However, music is by far his biggest passion. Andrea Pizzo currently works as a software engineer, and he graduated from University in Genova with a Degree in Physics.
Ada by Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice
Raffaella Turbino wrote Ada and The Boys From Silicon Valley lyrics. However, the music was composed by Andrea Pizzo, Riccardo Morello and Roberto Tiranti.
In Ada, we see the band’s central theme, science. This fascination with all things scientific runs through the band’s repertoire, and Ada is no different.
Ada Byron, the Countess of Lovelace, was a brilliant mathematician and scholar. She was considered to be the first computer programmer in history. Therefore, she has made an incredible impact on science as we know it today. However, she was relatively unknown, and her contribution to science has been largely unsung until now.
Who Sings on the Song Ada?
The singer of the opening lines is the tenor voice of Andrea Pizzo. Silvia Criscenzo comes in after the first chorus. Both singers are highly talented. After the instrumental section, both singers can be heard together. Their voices complement each other perfectly.
The first singer Silvia reminded me of when I heard her voice was Kate Bush. She has the same frequency range and sings at a similar pitch. The genre of the music is also similar to what you would expect from Kate Bush.
Instrumentation of Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice
As a guitarist myself, I appreciate the use of chorus effects on the electric guitar. I also believe that the guitar and bass guitar complement each other perfectly.
It is also great to be able to pick out each instrument individually. I can clearly hear the bass guitar, electric guitar, drums, keyboards and vocals.
Where Would the Title Track Fit Into Your Daily Life?
You would listen to this kind of song at the end of the day. The general ethos of the entire production is one of relaxation. However, the subject is more meaningful. Therefore, the tune is contradictory to the lyrics. It doesn’t matter. Ada is still a song that I would listen to in order to relax and unwind at the end of the day.
Differences to The Boys From Silicon Valley
The Boys From Silicon Valley by Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice is much more upbeat. You have this laid-back and relaxed mood with Ada, and suddenly, a more upbeat and energetic song immediately follows. I am not sure that that is the best choice. However, it is what it is. It’s a great production. That is the main criticism of the production that I have.
Who Does The Boys From Silicon Valley Sound Like?
In the first few bars, I am reminded of Chris De Burgh. However, the song itself, on further listening, is much more psychedelic than that. There are some 1970s influences in The Boys From Silicon Valley. These are present in the keyboards used and their interaction with the overall tune and the guitars.
What About the Other Instruments on The Boys From Silicon Valley?
I especially love the bass guitar parts on The Boys From Silicon Valley. This is a fantastic performance, and the bassist should be very proud of his performance on this song.
What Genres Can I Hear On The Entire Production by Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice
There are various genres that I can pick out from the entire production of Ada and The Boys From Silicon Valley.
Firstly, let’s take a look at Ada. The band consider this to be indie-pop. However, I can hear rock music elements in both songs.
In The Boys of Silicon Valley, I hear elements of disco and influences of classic rock. Bands like The Doors and Led Zeppelin can be identified in The Boys of Silicon Valley.
Andrea Pizzo and the Purple Mice have created an excellent work they should be very proud of.
