Corin is a gathering knot of permutations—the sound of something meticulously ruined and renewed.

Composed and performed principally with just two synthesizers, Corin Ileto establishes a dialogue of mimicry with her machines that becomes near-cybernetic—an anomalous approach that has led to her sharing stages with luminaries like Fatima Al Qadiri and being nominating for FBi radio’s Producer of the Year.

In her new video for Void, classical pianist turned rising electro star Corin calls on her ongoing fascination with broken images of the future. A long time devotee to nightmarish fantasies, she described a recent mix for i-D as music for "a dystopian future, hell on earth." Continuing with her pet theme for the second track off her upcoming EP Virtuality, she called on video artist Tristan Jalleh to create a virtual world framed in a "recycled dystopian future."

It has become quickly apparent the two were a match made in heaven — or rather hell — and shared an interest in what Corin describes as "robotic dehumanisation." For anyone not caught up with their transhumanist theory, she explains it as "the increasing normalisation of our intimate connections with technology that begs us to question where we end and the machine begins."

The clip's dark fluorescent illuminations are presented as the perspective of a programer interacting with an artificial world of their own creation, where reality is malleable. Beyond being a stunning way to spend three minutes, it's also a meditation on personal social isolation and the possible consequences of investing our hopes in digital utopias.
