There are few more potent examples of the power that music holds over our memories than hearing a song and being instantly transported back to a specific time or place.

But what if we could change the soundtrack retrospectively? If the scenes from our life played out on a big screen, how would we choose to score them? It's an idea that Italian multi-instrumentalist Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) found himself preoccupied with on his latest album 'Avanti'.

Prior to making the record, Cortini rediscovered an archive of home videos  made  by  his grandfather,  who  passed away a few years previously. Among the cache were several Super 8 films of family gatherings as well as hours of dinnertime conversations recorded on cassette for posterity. It was as if Cortini had unearthed a perfect fossil of his childhood. The films, however, were missing one crucial element - the sound. So Cortini decided he would restore the missing audio in his own way, by composing a musical accompaniment to the footage.
