Cortini, who started out as a rock guitarist, joined Nine Inch Nails in 2005, but today he is also known for the haunting synthesizer music he creates under his own name. Notable for its restraint, his work draws from the cosmic yearning of ’70s Berlin, the stillness of ambient, and the deep focus of drone. But more than any single style, what distinguishes it is its sonic character: distant, muted, at once futuristic and ancient. Cortini has spent years figuring out how to coax those qualities out of his machines. The melancholy splendor of his sound will come to a head on SCURO CHIARO, which revels in moody, shimmering tones that live up to the meaning of the title: “dark light.”
