Alessio Capovilla (1985, Turin, italy ) is an Italian composer who works under the moniker of XIII. He is interested in the synthesis and sound modeling. The (im)perfect sound, the (not) punctual distortion or the (un)suitable atmosphere, are constantly researched by XIII through synthesis, computer music and field recording, crossing beats and genres towards something not easily definable.
In April 2015 he released his debut album on Italo-berlinese Gang Of Ducks records. He is currently working on his second studio album.
