Alessandro Cortini (IT)

Alessandro Cortini

Italian-born composer and performer Alessandro Cortini is a musical voyager. Having spent considerable time performing lead electronics in addition to revisiting his initial instrumental forays in guitar for Nine Inch Nails and How to Destroy Angels, as well as continuing a solo project under the banner SONOIO (an Italian echo from “sono io” translating to “it’s me”), Cortini released his first recordings under his given name with the Forse series of works created on the Buchla Easel for Important Records. In 2014, Cortini began an ongoing series called Sonno for Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions, a gorgeously “restrained yet oddly emotive” call-and-response with the Roland MC 202, playfully dancing out of the academically driven approaches that typically infiltrate the aesthetic of hardware enthusiasts. Under his Skarn alias (releases with front line techno-experimentalist Shifted’s Avian label) Cortini once again displays his strengths as an interdisciplinary and incredibly talented producer and composer. Further works under the guise of Slumberman find spirit-collaborations with Den Haag’s notorious Panzerkreuz series.

"The festival’s seventh year was its best yet… Every day of the week there was at least one—and often several—things to look forward to."

"The core notion of the festival … isn’t just to provide a good time, but to illustrate the fertile mix of art and technology intrinsic to current-day Boston."

"The sixth edition of Together ... was a reminder of how much Boston still has to offer for the tribes of dance music fans who live here ... Despite its size, Together pulled off an impressive range of sounds from across the electronic spectrum."
