Listen To New Track ‘VERDE’

The latest from forthcoming album SCURO CHIARO, out 11th June 2021 on vinyl, CD and digitally.

Listen to ‘VERDE’, the latest track to be taken from Alessandro Cortini ‘s forthcoming new album, SCURO CHIARO – out on 11 June 2021 on vinyl, CD and digitally.

The new track, a slow-building crescendo of cascading synths that find a kinship between the pensive qualities of ambient music and strident harmonisation, is the latest taste of his forthcoming album, SCURO CHIARO, the follow up to VOLUME MASSIMO (2019, his first for Mute).

Listen to ‘VERDE’, the latest track to be taken from Alessandro Cortini ‘s forthcoming new album, SCURO CHIARO – out on 11 June 2021 on vinyl, CD and digitally: https://youtu.be/FwaxQho_65g

The new track, a slow-building crescendo of cascading synths that find a kinship between the pensive qualities of ambient music and strident harmonisation, is the latest taste of his forthcoming album, SCURO CHIARO, the follow up to VOLUME MASSIMO (2019, his first for Mute).

The making of SCURO CHIARO, much like its predecessor, allowed Cortini to embrace a freedom of expression. “I really enjoyed the fact that Volume Massimo became a series of rough colours that I added to in order to specify a more definite image, or a more definite painting in a way,” says Cortini. “It’s something that I hadn’t done before as a lot of my recordings are live recordings. With SCURO CHIARO I went back to this process. A lot of the compositions that I included are compositions that I listened to, worked with, massaged, and shaped the corners for them to fit in this specific puzzle—but there was less dissection, less hair and make-up than on the previous album.” The artwork for SCURO CHIARO, shot by Emilie Elizabeth, is an extension of the thematic bridge between the two works.

Cortini’s recently collaborated with electronic musical instrument manufacturer Make Noise to create a bespoke instrument and effects unit, Strega. “Strega is a successful attempt to condense my sonic aesthetic into a music making box,” Cortini says. “Throughout the time that I finished the record I was receiving prototypes, and their work was integrated on the record.”

The beauty of SCURO CHIARO lies in its contradictions. The abrasive elements that cycle in and out of focus across the album all find resolution in the warm ambiences that crackle and hiss into life in the background of every track.
