Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. “Imagine the electric guitar severed from cliché and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.” – (City Newspaper, USA). His lush and luminant compositions are anything but sterile computer experiments. They resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. In addition to his stunning catalogue of individual works, he has collaborated with many stalwarts of experimental and indie music including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Matmos, and Sparklehorse to name just a few.

 

His latest album Bécs, the spiritual followup to his landmark Endless Summer, is a true return to form for Fennesz and a vow to audiences everywhere of the veteran’s potential.
