“Project Electrico is no longer about a ‘sound’ we are going for, but a spirit. Project Electrico is a reflection of all the people, places and life events that have molded the art.” – Ronan Chris Murphy
Kathleen is with me at the new studio in the mountains and we are working on some of the more moody / ambient tracks from Project Electrico. In some ways this feels a little funny after working on some of the high energy world party tracks, but PE has evolved into its own beast. It started with KB and I taking some of the pop tunes that she had written with Arthur and adding a bit of world music twist to them, but as the project as evolved, in scope and time and geography the project has taken on its own spirit. During the making of this music we have met and collaborated with so many amazing people. We have had crazy lives filled with tragedy and bliss since we started recording and it is all getting reflected in the music.
