    Alessandro commented on Instagram that both records released today will get vinyl releases next year.

    Really loving Spettri -- definitely my favorite of all the stuff he's released over the past year or so!

    Illusion of Time, Movimento, Memorie, and Emosfere all haven't really been to my tastes, but we've been absolutely spoiled with his work recently, so I'm not complaining!

    (Still excitedly awaiting the Forse CD box set though...)

    I liked Volume Massimo. And I'm a huge Sonoio fan. I prefer Alessandro when he's doing a more pop/song structure. I'd take an instrumental Sonoio style album. Avanti was good too. But I dunno, the stuff that kinda repeats and builds up until it ends, I guess I really gotta be in THAT mood for it. Sonoio/Volume Massimo shows he knows how to make a song with a more pop structure. I dig that stuff more. Just me.

    I feel very similarly! Though I really love a lot of his more ambient stuff too -- for instance, the Forse series is great, but some of his less structured/more drone-y works don't do much for me. It can be pretty hit-or-miss on a personal level, but his eclectic output showcases just how talented a musician he really is.

    Ah yes, that's also one of my favorites.

    Hearing Alessandro talk on the R+R HOF stream made me realise that I haven't listened to any of his records since the days of Sonoio's Red and Blue albums. Any suggestions for where to jump into his more recent releases please?

    Same here and I rest my head in shame. What's a good approach or just go through it step by step?

    Not sure if you've heard the last Sonoio album yet, but I'd start there. After that, I'd say listen to Avanti and Volume Massimo.

    Does anyone have any context for these two recent releases? Or listened to them? Points of reference to other work? Today is an overwhelming day for new music!

    According to Alessandro himself 'a little different than usual'. Maybe we'll find out what that means. But until now I was too busy listening to Mank... First Friday Problems... :-(

    Liking these new albums overall, though the individual tracks can be pretty hit-or-miss. Definitely kinda different from most of what he's put out in the past -- I'd say it's pretty reminiscent of Skarn in its pulsing beats, but significantly more melodic (thankfully; I haven't really been able to get into Skarn).

    You should certainly at least stream it a bit on Bandcamp whenever you get the chance!

    Update: "Rmito" is gorgeous. Definite standout so far ("Mirto" my second-favorite).

    I haven't been keeping up with all of his instrumental releases lately so I listened to Rmito after you mentioned it and it is more engaging to me than some of his other instrumentals. I was really thrown when half way into it he played the synth line from the exit of Thanks for Calling for a bar, but I'm not against him merging some of his identity from Sonoio into these.

    Oh, whoa, at 3:52? I was definitely thrown by it on my first listen, but I didn't place it as the outro to Thanks For Calling -- good ear!!

    ...does anyone on here have the Blue/Red demos? Or, does anyone know if there is a site that still hosts them for download?

    Cortini is so great. I just came here to say that. He's one of my very favorite artists now. His music just moves me so much more than most modular/synth music does.

    I have one of these on pre-order. I'm new to the modular synth game, but goddamn, I can't wait to make noise with this thing.
