About Alessandro Cortini

Alessandro Cortini is an Italian musician, producer and composer, known for participating in various industrial and alternative projects, most notably Nine Inch Nails. As a solo artist he has released haunting instrumental music and has collaborated with electronic artists such as Daniel Avery and Lawrence English. Cortini is also the frontman for the LA-based alternative electronic project SONOIO.

One of the foremost figures of contemporary electronic music, Cortini has been releasing a steady stream of his own music on luminary labels (including Mute and Important Records) for the past decade. Balancing dark ambience with smoky, pulsing rhythms, his compositions are perfectly restrained, textured and mesmeric.

In 2021, in collaboration with boutique synth builders Make Noise, Cortini released his own, custom designed, semi-modular synth, Strega (Italian for ‘witch’). That same year, he used Strega to build his latest full length, Scuro Chiaro (Mute), which Pitchfork described as “pitched somewhere between purgatory and the planetarium... consistently managing to thrill and surprise”.

Throughout his rise to fame, Cortini has collaborated with the likes of Lawrence English, Daniel Avery and Merzbow (to name a few).


Support comes from Brighton-based electronic producer MATTHS.

The Radiophonic Workshop collaborator MATTHS (Matt Hodson) presents dark, brooding and extreme techno productions that boast brutality within the breadth of the production aesthetic. His first release (on FatCat Records’ sub-label FCR in 2019) presented two stunning, atmospheric soundscapes ‘Velocet’ and ‘Loop’, which immediately captivate.

Recent MATTHS performances include opening for Wire; supporting Alex Banks, Lonelady, Ulrich Schnauss and Rival Consoles.

"Worth comparing to Jon Hopkins or even Max Richter's more up front work, the Brutalist electronics have a crunching, percussive feel... with MATTHS displaying an astute awareness of the way blocks of sound can interlink." Clash Magazine
