Alessandro Cortini Announces New Solo Album, ‘Risveglio’


Alessandro Cortini has announced a new album,, Risveglio, which is due in late July.

In the meantime, we’ve got a preview of the new album below:

The upcoming album explores a different side of the Roland TB-303:

“The 303 can be such a haunting instrument, used in a certain way,” notes Cortini, “and I felt it completely fit the mood of the previous work I have done on the 202, especially when given a specific location in space.”

“It’s such a living instrument,” adds Cortini.

La Sveglia is from the Hospital Productions record Risveglio, out July 27 2015.

  1. Cool thnxs you guys missed last album forse 3 glad to hear a new one is coming soon. I found out about him through here and love his work under his own name.

  2. Aargh, it’s a 303 and delay – now look @ that waveform – another overcompressed and limited lifeless mess. Just go on and tell ppl how much better your analog squeezed to death mess sounds, I am sure the masses will fall for it.

    1. This mass did. He loves working with minimal amount of equipment to produce desired result. Granted he has buchla gear out of reach of most for the forse albums but he produces stuff that is very minimalistic and seems attainable to those without that gear. He inspires me to make the ms20 sound much more then what it is.

    2. I don’t always listen to music, but when I do, I analyze the waveform first to make sure I take the joy out of listening to music.

    3. I believe what you are seeing is the lovely saturation/overdrive going on here. Cortini is not a guy you can blame for terrible modern producing techniques. In fact, quite the opposite.

    1. Funny that you forgot to mention that you “like the music” in your previous two posts where you were just being a negative nelly. Your comments are sort of like walking into a party and dropping a nasty smelling fart for everyone to enjoy. Thanks for your contribution.

    2. with all due respect, I find your comments odd. Cortini doesn’t immediately come to mind regarding the loudness war. I hope you’re just having a bad day, and that it gets better.

  3. It sounds absolutely lovely, lush as fuck. The TB 303 is an instument, nothin more, as always it’s about how one uses one’s tools to make what is desired, and remember; we don’t have to listen to it….

  4. He played some of this two weekends ago at NMASS here in Austin. I did not get a good look at his rig, but I do not think he was using a TB303 (I think He used his custom SuONIO system). As for “loudness”, it was like he was a highly skilled chef adding truffles to his dishes: he didn’t just slather it on everywhere indiscriminately – he’d wait for just the proper moment, it usually wasn’t where you thought it would be, but suddenly your testicles and your back teeth and room itself would be shaking with some very low frequencies at very high amplitudes and I’d be unconsciously grinning like back in college when that tab of blotter I took an hour ago suddenly made its presence known.

    BTW, Cortini was preceded by Surachai and followed by Richard Devine. What’s that? You weren’t there? Alas, my friend, I don’t want to sound like a big dick, but – I feel sorry for you.
