Co-presented with Vancouver New Music

Opening Act: Alexi Baris

Vancouver-based composer Alexi Baris takes a diligent and painterly approach to sound design, magnifying tiny events and repurposing expansive gestures. An artist-in-residence at the Western Front in 2023, Baris’s methods are patient and deceptively rigorous, trading in sonics that are at once organized and organic.

Main Act: Alessandro Cortini

Best known as a member of Nine Inch Nails, Alessandro Cortini has quietly been carving a name for himself in the world of experimental electronic music. The producer, composer, and musician is known for his lush ambient music, full of smoky restraint. His latest record, SCURO CHIARO, is focused on a single instrument Cortini made himself — Strega, a semi-modular synth and effects box.

With this custom synth, he has opened up a new sonic world with “a focus on the infinite fluctuations of limited palettes, a fine way of hanging harmonic flesh on sinewy rhythms, and an urge to slowly explode minute pulses into capacious sound worlds.” (Pitchfork)

Cortini last performed in Vancouver in 2015. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see him live in the intimacy of the Telus Studio Theatre.
