“Lonesome Highway Superstar” Music Video
The innovative new music video for the song “Lonesome Highway Superstar” by New York-based electronic music pioneer Chris Ianuzzi was made using artificial intelligence. It pushes the boundaries of both space and technology. Chris’s wild, vast album “Maze,” which was released on April 8th, features the post-punk and synth pop-infused centerpiece “Lonesome Highway Superstar.” In his most recent music video, “March of Madness,” he also made use of artificial intelligence technologies. Additionally, the song “March of Madness” was made available in Dolby Atmos Spatial Audio along with the album.
The new “Lonesome Highway Superstar” video was produced on November 4, 2022, using Disco Diffusion and Stable Diffusion AI image production tools and methodologies in conjunction with Ethem Serkan Sökmen and lke Köse.
The song tells the story of a journey through life. It starts off as a dream. “I walk in my sleep, I walk to the promised land, and all the people I meet can’t help me understand why,” the song’s lyrics state. There is a feeling of desire and loneliness. When the chorus starts, it signals progress in the right direction. The middle of the song makes it evident that there is a person for whom “Our memories are less forgiving,” and we have a long way to go.
A darkly compelling song with industrial, art-pop, and Talking Heads-inspired vocals set against vintage synths is “Lonesome Highway Superstar.” One of Chris’s more boisterously pleasant compositions, Lonesome Highway Superstar moves across industrial and electronic-rock soundscapes with a variety of spoken-word and singing vocal directions. Particularly striking is the two-minute buildup of buzzing synth.
Additionally, this song, “Lonesome Highway Superstar,” was influenced by a composition he created titled “Dreamer.” He says “Dreamer” repeatedly throughout the song. To create the song what it is today, he entered the phase of change, maintaining certain elements and adding new ones. Additionally, there are lyrical allusions to the song “Glides On” from his Synthesist project’s debut album, Avalanche.
Chris’s first idea for a video was to be a “Road Warrior” style with a wrecked automobile driving down a desert highway. He felt it was time to look for something fresh after giving it some thought and watching what Serkan and Ilke achieved with AI to create “the March of Madness” video. “Let’s put the character in space and make the journey cosmic,” he reasoned. They left after he shared his opinions with them.
By making adventurous, blatantly non-popular music intended for attentive listeners, Chris Lanuzzi avoids the mainstream. Nevertheless, he enjoys himself indescribably while doing it. The music of early synthesizers, industrial, ambient, glitch, and techno can all be found in Chris Lanuzzi’s compositions, yet there is also something weird and novel in his work. ReGen Magazine claims that Lanuzzi’s music “makes the declaration that he’s here to delight in a new future.” Finally, this represents the apex of headphone music.
Fans of Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross, Aphex Twin, Amon Tobin, Oneohtrix Point Never, Gary Numan, or John Carpenter should definitely check out this music, “Lonesome Highway Superstar.”
