Alessandro Cortini wrenches human emotion out of synthesized noise. Using walls of analogue equipment to create an immersive ambient sound that’s both hopeful and ominous, his industrial compositions rise, crash, and subside.

Italian-based electronic composer and producer Alessandro Cortini, known for genre-spanning work in Nine Inch Nails, SONOIO and Modwheelmod, as well as for off-the-beaten-path solo projects such as blindoldfreak and Skarn.
