Conceived between 2018 and 2020, Sintesi is a new point of departure for Alessandro from his previous works with other projects and collaborations, in Italy and abroad. Alessandro has performed, recorded and produced every track, using an electronic gear with some acoustic elements such as a few drums (his main instrument), processed concrete sounds and his own voice on the song "Lifetime", along with an accurate work of sound design and sound processing. The result is a melancholic and introspective album surrounded by a detailed and evocative scenario, with rhythms that sometimes flow free and sometimes stumble, as it happens in real life.
The set is tighlty connected with visual arts through a background projection of the visuals made by artist Luigi Honorat, Fabio Volpi and Elisabetta Cardella.
The performance has been hosted by Dancity Foligno, Europavox Wien, Expandend Visions Macerata, Botanique Bologna amongst others.
