avatar for Alessandro Cortini

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 (debut released on front line techno-experimentalist Shifted's Avian label in late 2014) 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 prominent techno/electronic label CLR and Den Haag's notorious Panzerkreuz series.
