EB Premiere: Alessandro Cortini – “Di Passaggio”

Major exclusive incoming! Nine Inch Nails‘ keyboardist and multi-instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini has teamed up with Dominick Fernow’s Hospital Productions label for a solo record called Sonno. Hear “Di Passaggio”, taken from the LP, exclusively on EB.

Dialing back the budget you’d associate with his day job, Cortini opts for a more primal, ambient sound, attributable to its genesis: Cortini apparently created the record on a Roland MC-202 in various hotel rooms while on tour with NIN. It follows on from last year’s solo experiments Forse 1 and Forse 2, released on Important Records, which were also built on a series of analogue sketches possessed of an eerie emotional charge. We’re hooked.


Alessandro Cortini’s Sonno will be released on June 23rd via Hospital Productions.
