Avalanche

by I, Synthesist

A real surprise in these times in which we experience a revival of synthpop and new wave. Refreshing retro project? Contradictio in terminis? Maybe, but it is a fact that he leaves traces of the pioneers and manages to sound refreshing at the same time.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
syn*the*sist
one who combines diverse conceptions into a coherent whole

Like a slowly building front of snow on a mountainside, this album has rolled and rolled all over the globe, sweeping people one by one, ganining an unbelievable success for this talented new indie artist. No major label, no industry of professional PR, marketing and promotion, nothing. He represents with all its glory the power of music-good music, excellent music.

There's a hit song here, and you'll know it when you hear it. There are remix-ready tracks poised to explode on international dance floors. There are words; Ianuzzi's command of the medium gives life and sound to the twitchy introspection that hovers behind post-millennial shoulders. And there's a lot more where that came from; proof that Chris Ianuzzi knows what he's doing-he knows he's going to keep Synthesizing-which, really, is what music and culture are all about.

New Yorker I, Synthesist has made a fine 100% pure classy incredible
brilliant electro-pop album that will be a classic in the years to
come. For the very first time a true original and innovating artist
made me say something like this!
[CD Review by Donovan Tate]


I just saw "I, Synthesist" last night with "The Cruxshadows" at a local venue. Prior to last night I didn't have a clue as to who "I, Synthesist" was and thought "Oh, just another opening act filler." Boy was I wrong. From the moment this one man band appeared on stage my ear was magically drawn into the beats, synths, and vocals emanating from the sound system. After the set, I didn't have to be told twice and immediately bought this album. I love it and if you like New Wave and modern day Synth Pop you'll love it as well. I'm amazed that I didn't hear more about Chris Ianuzzi before. All in all if you're looking for a nice, well crafted, and catchy electronic

I, Synthesist (aka Chris Ianuzzi) harkens back to the more classic
synthpop songs of yore by legends such as Thomas Dolby, Gary Numan,
Kraftwerk and OMD. But to avoid sounding derivative, he utilizes
synths, samples and effects more in tune with today's Synthpop
contemporaries and illustrates an incredible amount of pop potential.
[Industrial Nation]


Genius stuff! I referred to it as, upon first hearing it, "electro
stomp-ass Gary Numan". A big fan, I saw him live recently and of course
could not stand still. The beautiful electronic soundscape as well as
the enchanting images displayed during the show transformed a New
Jersey dancefloor and two rum-and-cokes into a very cool fantasy world.

Fantastic debut!
I have seen I,Synthesist live several times and based on those shows I purchased "Avalanche".

The CD is fantastic from start through finish and I have found it a favorite for my car stereo. My favorite tracks so far are "Avalanche", "Images" "The Lost Parade", "Aerial Dreams", "Red Clouds" and "Captain, My Captain".

I highly recommend this CD and if you get a chance to see I, Synthesist perform do not pass up the opportunity. The songs are great live and cool visuals are used to enhance the show even more.

Intense and Beautiful
A rare combination of great song writing and juicy electronics laced with fun, spacey, imaginative lyrics. Great buy for anyone growing tired of the same old sounds present in modern synth/electropop; your ears will find this refreshing. It's also a pleasing mix of dance-y and mellow songs. My favorite tracks: Aerial Dreams, Avalanche and Red Clouds.
