Cortini Waves Etapp
Alessandro Cortini arrival in the US in 1998 to pursue his musical career ultimately jolted him into the canon of this uniquely American voice and mode of expression. Cortini’s love of the Buchla Music Easel is just one of the megaphones to his ever expanding yet distinctive voice. Born out of his experimentations in creative limitation in direct relation to decisive expression, and subsequently written and performed live on the Easel in a month the Forse series blossomed during the period spent writing and recording the instrumental record Ghosts IIV with Nine Inch Nails, and finally bore fruit as a trilogy of double LPs released by Important Records. Alessandro has 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“) though his recent masterful outputs with the Buchla system and beyond has truly stamped his musical articulation in a class all his own, with a growing familiarity and recognizability to his emotional voice in his albeit diverse exercises with his varying „bandmates“ as he himself so endearingly calls his rotating cast of gear he employs in each different project. Live this Friday night.
