VINYL FORMAT. Alessandro Cortini, who spent many years as a member of Nine Inch Nails, recorded Forse using a Buchla Music Easel, of which only 13 are known to exist. Forse, meaning "maybe" in Italian, is a series of three releases spread out over CD, LP, and cassette, with each format containing unique material. Cortini says: "All pieces were written and preformed live on a Buchla Music Easel, in the span of one month. I found that the limited array of modules that the instrument offers sparked my creativity. Most pieces consist of a repeating chord progression, where the change happens at a spectral/dynamic level, as opposed to the harmonic/chordal one. I believe that the former are just as effective as the latter, in the sense that the sonic presentation (distortion, filtering, wave shaping) are just as expressive as a chord change or chord type, and often reinforce said chord progressions.
