Illusion of Time
Daniel Avery and Alessandro Cortini hinted at their collaborative potential when they released the limited edition 7” ‘Water’/‘Sun’ back in 2017 through Erol Alkan’s Phantasy imprint. The pair have been busy since then - Avery with promoting his wonderful second studio LP Song For Alpha, Cortini with a variety of projects including solo material and the group SONOIO. However, despite both having full schedules they have also found time to make good on the promise of that 2017 release, creating ten tracks together which are released here on the new LP Illusion Of Time.
Expanding on some 4 albums with Important Records (including 2 collaborations with stalwarts of modern electronic music Merzbow and Lawrence English), two with Hospital Productions and one with Point Of Departure - 2017’s Avanti - one of Bleep’s albums of that year: the prolific Alessandro Cortini returns to join Daniel Miller’s Mute Records with VOLUME MASSIMO. Here we see him deviate slightly from the industrial noise he’s previously honed to a fine art and venture towards a brighter cinematic sound full of saturated, processed synthesisers and undulating melodies. Some parallels can be drawn to recent work from Pye Corner Audio in the slowly unravelling melodies (Amore Amaro) drawing you ever closer. Or to seminal Boards Of Canada material, sleep deprived electronic excursions to a place not yet known.
