IAMX chris bySarynChristina
Chris Corner aka IAMX is currently bridging the Corona-related tour break in two ways: On the one hand, he performs live acoustic streams, in which the next and last one will take place on 14th May at 8 p.m. German time, captures by multiple-camera perspectives via crowdcast. All info via bit.ly/iamx_crowdcast. He also holds so-called “mental health gatherings” every Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. German time - behind it there are live chats in which fans can interact with Chris and ask questions.

So far, the genre-busting sound world of IAMX - the solo project by Chris Corner, former mastermind of the SNEAKER PIMPS - consisted of electronic yet organic soundscapes, over which Corner’s highly emotional singing was enthroned, which ranged from deep darkness to the angelic Falsetto. With the new album ‘Echo Echo’, which will be released on March 13, Chris Corner has now turned all of this upside down.

‘Echo Echo’ is a selection of songs from the previous work of IAMX, which have now been rearranged, recorded and wrapped in a surprising acoustic sound. Chris Corner explains the idea for this approach as follows: “A thing I always intended to do is an acoustic album. All my songs start on the guitar or the piano and only later become the monsters you hear on the records. This is about stripping them back and laying bare the origins of the song writing.”

As a child, Chris Corner taught himself to play the guitar, emulating the musical heroes of his youth, including David Sylvian, Julian Bream and Simon & Garfunkel. Corner later became a multi-instrumentalist, singer and producer, who, as the co-founder of the Trip Hop pioneers SNEAKER PIMPS, has enjoyed worldwide commercial success. But Corner quickly shied away from the associated fame and, with his solo project IAMX and the eight albums released under this name so far, gained a new reputation as an elusive, wild, and above all completely independent artist. He also underpins this reputation in the video for the first pre-single ‘Surrender’: The artist can be seen in a performance of the song that is violently interrupted by two roller blading girls dressed in delicate lace, and then the situation ends in a sexually charged mess of chocolate cake, flour and colours.
