Christian Fennesz, hailed as the last of the romantics of experimental electronic music because of the intimate landscapes and sublime inner worlds that he is able to conjure through his music, returns here to present his latest album Agora, in collaboration with Lillevan on visuals. A new statement on what atmospheric music can sound like today, realized, as he tells us himself, after the loss of his proper recording studio, inside the small bedroom of his apartment, with just headphones and minimal equipment at hand.
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. Christian Fennesz is published by Touch Music. He lives and works in Vienna.
