About

Holy Similaun is Alberto Bertelli (b. 1996), an Italian musician and sound designer currently based in Treviso, Italy.

Its work sonically portrays a constant feeling of powerlessness, focusing on heavy cinematics, minimal-inspired compositions, physical modelling synthesis and non-linear time manipulations, bringing its unique perspective on internal-external human meltdowns.

After its Aphex Twin-approved debut album “En To Pan“, Holy Similaun goes further in its intimate and personal musical discourse with “Ansatz” to investigate uncertainty and the mutation of our “safe spaces”.

H—S also previously collaborated with Carhartt, Slam Jam and Spazio Maiocchi, on audiovisuals projects such as Zoë McPherson’s SFX “XquisiteForce.AV” at 2021’s CTM Festival and Rest Now!’s remake of Die Hard’s soundtrack and played alongside renowned contemporary artists like Abadir, Chevel, Dis Fig, Furtherset, Kangding Ray, Lotic, Mana, Maxwell Sterling, Plaid, Renick Bell, Shelley Parker, Soho Rezanejad & Varg2TM.
