Transformation is at the core of Chris Corner’s music and outlook. Ever since leaving wildly successful 1990’s trip-hop group Sneaker Pimps, Corner’s process of becoming IAMX beginning in 2004 has been theatrical, transcendent, and communal. Androgynous and visceral, IAMX has metamorphosed from small-town blue-collar kid to international pop star in the 1990’s to creator of raw art that disrupts gender and genre in the 2000’s. Fueling electronic experimentation with punk energy and confessional lyricism, Corner’s goth and industrial sound, fashion, performances, videos, and persona are larger than life, iconoclastic, and shockingly intimate.
In addition to his success as a songwriter, producer, and touring artist, IAMX is one of the most licensed musicians on ABC TV’s runaway hit show, How To Get Away with Murder. By the end of 2017, IAMX had synced 16 of his songs to its soundtrack, becoming one of the most recognizable composers on television thanks to the show’s creator Pete Nowalk, being a superfan of IAMX. Another superfan turned collaborator is postmodern tattoo and makeup powerhouse, kindred spirit Kat Von D, who sings on four songs on AINL and shares IAMX’s avant-garde fashion and design sense, epic stage theatricality, and gender-bending proclivities. IAMX’s provocative aesthetics are not limited to his music and fashion. As a video artist, he crafts IAMX’s stunning live visuals and most of their music videos, as well as videos for other acts, most notably his close friend Gary Numan.
A fourth Sneaker Pimps album with a working title of 'SP4' was recorded but never released. Some of the songs were used on the first two IAMX albums.
He left Sneaker Pimps in 2003 to concentrate on his IAMX project. He released his debut solo album, "Kiss + Swallow" in 2004 and the follow-up "The Alternative" in 2006. He moved from London to Berlin in 2006, where he is still residing.
Both 'Kiss + Swallow' and 'The Alternative' were re-released in 2008 with bonus tracks.
The third album "Kingdom Of Welcome Addiction" was released in May 2009, preceeded by the download-only single "Think Of England". He also collaborated with Imogen Heap on the song 'My Secret Friend' as well as directing the promo video for it.
In 2011, the fourth album "Volatile Times" was released. This was preceeded by the single 'Ghosts of Utopia', which had its radio premiere in the Czech Republic on January 23, his 37th birthday. It was later made available for purchase via iTunes and iamx.eu and the promo video was again directed by him.
2012 saw the start of a crowd-funded project via the website Pledgemusic and the target was reached in less than an hour. Among the items on offer was the fifth studio album "The Unified Field". The release of this was preceded by a single 'The Unified Field' and the album was finally released in 2013.
