Chris Bozzone is a Philadelphia-based soundtrack composer, songwriter and filmmaker. His latest works include the 2018 released scores for Thomas Ligotti's The Bungalow House, a vinyl-and-cassette release and for H.P. Lovecraft's The Hound as a vinyl only release from Cadabra Records. Chris's score for Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart will also be released by Cadabra at the very end of this year. In 2019, his soundtrack for Thomas De Quincey's Suspiria de Profundis: Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow will be released on vinyl along with several other to be announced record releases.
In 2015, Chris co-directed and scored a short film, "Mirrors," which was selected by filmmaker David Lynch to screen in conjunction with a Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts exhibit of Lynch's visual art.
He has played on live bills with artists such as James Blackshaw, Sir Richard Bishop and the late Jack Rose. For about 10 years, Chris was a disc jockey for WPRB in Princeton, New Jersey, where he co-hosted a long-running show with Brian Farmer. Notable guests included Simon Finn, Christina Carter, and Six Organs of Admittance.
"Chris Bozzone has an artistic vision, which brings together cosmic exploration and the literary gothic, as in the beautiful corrupted by decay... his albums move through contemplation, nature exploration, and hallucinogenic tapestries to portentous terror. At the edge of his music is a fear and sadness that our reality is fragile and that we cannot understand what lies beyond ."
"... Bozzone shadows his words with malign electronics and wheezing-drones, as if slowly prising open the portal to an abyss."
Louis Pattison, Wire magazine, August 2018
"A truly gifted songwriter whose talent for sculpting gorgeous melodies is only equaled by the imaginative set of arrangements he uses to perfect them."
“With his fourth release, Horizons of Death, Chris brings light from the edges with a whole new approach to his instrumentation and songwriting. The vibe is still morose and chilling, but the flourishes of strings and brass convey that Chris has finally hit upon something truly exceptional.”
"You know, if a music mag like, say, I don't know, Pitchfork really cared about music as much as they do style and trend, they would of already heard of and written about Chris Bozzone. He deserves that kind of visibility..."
