Electronic music producer and musician Alessandro Cortini returns to the Hall with the London premiere of  Nati Infiniti for an evening of innovative music and visuals.

Italian composer, musician and instrument builder Alessandro Cortini is one of the foremost figures in electronic music. Balancing dark ambience with pulsing rhythms, his music is perfectly textured and mesmeric.

A longstanding member of Nine Inch Nails and collaborator with Lawrence English, Daniel Avery and Merzbow, Cortini has been releasing his own music for the past decade on luminary labels such as Mute and Important Records. In 2021 Cortini custom designed a semi-modular synth called Strega (Italian for witch) which he used to create his album Scuro Chiaro described as 'pitched somewhere between purgatory and the planetarium’ by Pitchfork. 

His latest piece Nati Infiniti will be presented using the Strega.

Opening the show is Nairobi-born sound artist KMRU & visual artist Markus Heckmann presenting the new show Dissolution Grip.
