Alessandro Cortini

Forse 3


IMPREC418   2LP


We've got a limited stock of semi-transparent purple vinyl (identical to the purple vinyl from the first pressing)

Forse 3 is the final release in Alessandro Cortini's Forse Trilogy. Like parts 1 and 2, Forse 3 has a distinct sound and feeling. 

To celebrate the completion of the Forse trilogy a deluxe, limited edition 3 t-shirt box set is available 

Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels) recorded Forse using a Buchla Music Easel; of which only 13 are known to exist. Forse, meaning "maybe" In Italian, is a series of 3 double LP releases.
"All pieces were written and performed live on a Buchla Music Easel, in the span of one month. I found that the limited array of modules that the instrument offers sparked my creativity.
Most pieces consist of a repeating chord progression, where the real change happens at a spectral/dynamic level, as opposed to the harmonic/chordal one. I believe that the former are just as effective as the latter, in the sense that the sonic presentation (distortion , filtering, wave shaping, etc) are just as expressive as a chord change or chord type, and often reinforce said chord progressions.
Of all the years with Nine Inch Nails the period spent writing and recording the instrumental record Ghosts I-IV is probably the one which changed my approach to music making the most. After that record I started getting more into instrumental composition, although I tried to approach it in a different way. While we had a vast array of tools and instruments at our disposal then, I decided to approach my pieces limiting myself to one instrument only, as I found myself being more decisive when faced with a limited creative environment.
