Alessandro Cortini Debuts on Mute with ‘Volume Massimo’ LP
'Volume Massimo' LP lands on September 27.
Volume Massimo follows 2017’s Avanti and commences “directly from that point.” It combines Cortini’s “fondness for melody with the rigour of experimental practice.”
Beginning with “Amore Amaro,” the album is said to journey into a meditative process that gently twists time and memory in its wake with a deftly arranged ensemble of synthesizers saturated with sonic artefacts. Guitar motifs are used to punctuate the shimmering landscapes.
Outside of his solo material and as keyboard player for Nine Inch Nails, Cortini has worked with Merzbow and Lawrence English, and also releases as SONOIO.
