Chris Marianetti co-founded Found Sound Nation (FSN), a team of composers and music producers who work with youth and communities to create original music projects. From New York to New Orleans to Zimbabwe to India, FSN partners with local youth, social organizations, music festivals, and artists across all disciplines to create a musical nation that transcends geographical, linguistic, and political borders. The work of FSN uses the expressive power of music, audio, and video production to give voice to underrepresented communities, unlock the creative potential of at-risk youth, and build bridges between communities separated by cultures, economic disparities, and geography.
