Forse 3 is the final release in Alessandro Cortini's Forse Trilogy. Like parts 1
and 2, Forse 3 has a distinct sound and feeling. Edition of 500. Alessandro
Cortini (Nine Inch Nails, How To Destroy Angels) 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 double LP releases. ''All pieces were written
and performed 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 real 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, etc.) are just as expressive as a
chord change or chord type, and often reinforce said chord progressions. Of all
the years with Nine Inch Nails, the period spent writing and recording the
instrumental record Ghosts I-IV is probably the one which changed my approach to
music-making the most. After that record I started getting more into instrumental
composition, although I tried to approach it in a different way. While we had a
vast array of tools and instruments at our disposal then, I decided to approach my
pieces limiting myself to one instrument only, as I found myself being more decisive
when faced with a limited creative environment.''

We try to be as accurate as possible, but we use a service to get images for the vinyl records we sell. Sometimes, this leads to the image showing a special colored vinyl edition of a record when we only have the standard black vinyl version.
