Alessio Santini works with sounds and images.

After playing guitars in obscure black and doom metal bands during nineties, and working on several electronic music IDM projects, he started a path of research on granular sound processing and audio-video interaction, from fifteen years now.

Kenter is an electric guitar + acoustic drums (both heavily manipulated), record.

Big, raw, digitally distorted guitars are processed, re-processed, then processed again, leading to massive noise, textured drones, and heavy riffs.

Drums are composed with micro-articulation by custom-made softwares, and often reprocessed via granulation technics, to keep the warmth and feel of a real drum set, but projecting it into humanly-unplayable and electroacoustic-like territories.

Kenter is also a post-song experiment: echoes of choruses and vocals make appearance all along the record.
