New York-based artist, composer, and producer Chris Ianuzzi releases “So Far So Near,” a track from his forthcoming full-length album, releasing via Satellite Symphonics.
With his unique sound, a blend of IDM, industrial, ambient, glitch, and techno, Chris’ music is singular and unparalleled.
Chris’ resume includes a performance at the American Society of University Composers, Clio awards for commercials, touring Japan and Europe with Sluka, providing music for The Crime and Investigation Channel, performing at Leipzig’s The Wave Gotik Treffen Festival, and two workshops with the Brain Interface at Moogfest
Piqued when he heard the sound of a Moog synthesizer at a music store, Chris followed by immersing himself in electronic music, leading to serving as Electronic Creative associate for Suzanne Ciani, as well as working with Vangelis and ex-Tangerine Dream member Peter Baumann and Billboard charting projects like Freeze’s “AEIOU” and The Puppets’ “Way of Life.”
After returning to New York, he scored HBO’s Earth to Moon series, while his 2020 EP, Olga in a Black Hole, received vast attention, followed by collaborating with D. Carlton Bright and Max Rosenthal on the music video for “Hello.”
“So Far So Near – Side 1” opens on dark industrial synths riding a syncopated rhythm, followed by wickedly hallucinatory vocals, imbuing the lyrics with maniacal tones as if from some Neronian nightmare. Glitching sounds, along with percolating vibrations give the tune ominous textures, producing sonic membranes of pressure, throbs, and chill.
“So Far So Near – Side 2” seamlessly continues the eccentric soundscape, injecting the composition with eerie mechanized flavors, shimmering and flickering with dripping timbres.
Like the soundtrack to a futuristic remake of Frankenstein, “So Far So Near” reverberates with susceptibility, fervor, and shadowy urgency.
