Chris Ianuzzi mixes electronica with post-punk on “Edge of the Earth”

Video continues in the award winning visuals established in “Lonesome Highway Superstar”

NYC Composer Chris Ianuzzi has been in a constant state of rapid evolution with his completely original synth-heavy electronica and post-punk hybrid sound. Unafraid to take bold creative risks, Ianuzzi has leaned into sonic experimentation while embracing new technologies such as artificial intelligence and Dolby Atmos production. His efforts are clearly paying off. His AI music video for “Lonesome Highway Superstar” has taken home several awards (Winner in Japan indies Music Festival – Best Electronica, Winner of Best Music Video in Movie Play International, Winner of Best Music Video  in Filmnest International), and by the looks of his immersive new visual for “Edge of the Earth”, more accolades are incoming.

Chris Ianuzzi’s music is at once apocalyptic and devilishly fun, recklessly leaning into the untethered and unknown. His artistic expressions are challenging and tend to divide public opinion, which is what makes them so potent for those that ‘get the message’.

The video was made in collaboration with Chris’s long-time creative team, Serkan and İlke.

“The visuals were designed using Stable Diffusion and Deforum AI SD Animation Pipeline. These groundbreaking tools help us shape an array of mind-bending visuals that truly elevate this musical piece. Our digital canvas has been brought to life with a variety of AI renders from Deforum, each skillfully layered together using After Effects.”

Chris expands on the song’s themes and ethos: “The song and video are inspired by the state of our planet with regards to the political as well as the natural  atmospheric conditions that we are living in.  It all looks like the apocalypse, almost biblical at times. It’s difficult not to feel this when watching the news.

“Although it is a very serious stream of events, I try to ad some humor ” Wonder Woman, Superman, Hercules cant make a stand. I’m falling. On a positive look —“I’ll meet you on the other side”

“The video//song move through different human conditions, dancing as there is nothing left to do. Singing but no one knows what song to sing. We are all hoping for the best result. The video has a visual display of synthesizers and technical objects, this can be looked at as a personal  take as well as my own image.”

The video was released on July 18th.

“The Lemons in the Edge of The Earth cover were made because I was playing with ideas with the the program Dall-e. Someone walked by and said “You should try adding Lemmings” I thought she said “Lemons” -whoops. I really liked the result. We had to put lemons in the video too.”

Artist Biography:
New York’s Composer/Songwriter Chris Ianuzzi makes a fantasy world of music and visuals that is highly recommend instead of blowing your money on either therapy or narcotics!  

Ianuzzi’s interest in electronic music never waned after the sound of a Moog synthesizer at a music store triggered an earlier childhood hallucinogenic memory first experienced during a dental procedure.

Chris Ianuzzi

Highlights from his formal music training include a performance for the American Society for University Composers (in which he played a piano using a chisel, rubber wedge and an ARP 2600).

For a number of years Ianuzzi served as an Electronic Creative associate with the legendary Suzanne Ciani and her Electronic Music booutique for Sound Design and Scoring. Chris’ early years also included work with Vangelis and ex-Tangerine Dream member Peter Baumann as well as work on Billboard chart-topping projects such as “AEIOU” by Freeze and “Way of Life” by The Puppets. During this time, Ianuzzi developed his song writing skills. Ianuzzi also recorded two albums with the band Sluka (Meldac Records) while touring Japan and Europe.

He then returned to New York and scored for visual works in all media. This work included composing orchestral music for the HBO “Earth to Moon” series and creating sound design and musical composition for large interactive environments.

Though he has become a bit more grounded since his childhood psychedelic musical awakening, Ianuzzi’s creativity remains a driving force. Chris Ianuzzi released a 3-track EP ‘Olga in a Black Hole’ on 03/09/2020 to critical acclaim. He followed this release up by collaborating with New York-based creatives D. Carlton Bright and Max Rosenthal to create an original music video for “Hello”, a track featured on the EP and also planned for inclusion on upcoming full-length album ‘Planetaria’ out 06/15/2020 on all platforms.
