Alessandro Cortini used to be known best as a member of Nine Inch Nails, but he’s made a name for himself as a solo electronic musician over the past decades. His work is melodic, rigorous, and he shapes his forms toward the experience of intensity and transformation. This video is for “Batticuore” from his upcoming record Volume Massimo (September 27 release).
While you’re waiting for that one to come out, enjoy his great 2017 album Risveglio. Avanti!
I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
