Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. He’s known for his own particular musical world as well as his impeccable work in creating beautiful compositions for guitar. Somewhere between concrete music, classical and ambience sounds, he stretches musical resources and effects to create melodies and atmospheres that fuse classical and orchestral concepts with conceptual musical research and complex digital structures. Fennesz’s treatment of the laptop and guitar allow each to give up its identity to the other; exquisite guitar washes losing their specificity to the crackling textures of the laptop. Live guitar chords become loops on the laptop and he constantly shifts between contradictions and possibilities of each.
