Chris Ianuzzi

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. 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 processed the sound through an ARP 2600. For a number of years Ianuzzi served as an Electronic Creative Associate with the legendary Suzanne Ciani and her electronic music boutique 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. Chris created an electronic songwriting and multimedia performance project called I, Synthesist. The first album, “Avalanche,” was released in 2004 and received a High Five in The German Alternative Charts and had songs in the top 10 of The French Alternative Charts. I, Synthesist was invited to play at the 2005 Wave Gotik Treffen festival in Leipzig, Germany and did a mini tour of Europe. Since then he has released 3 I, Synthesist albums and 2 EP’s. Chris recently made a departure from his songwriting project and returned to instrumental forms of electronic music featuring the MakeNoise modular and the B1 Brain interface in performance. Though he has become a bit more grounded since his childhood psychedelic musical awakening, Ianuzzi’s creativity remains a driving force. Using classic analog synthesizers in conjunction with the most current digital technologies, his goal is to create immersive performances.
