Christian Fennesz (born 25 December 1962) is an Austrian guitarist active in electronic music, often credited on albumssimply as Fennesz. Fennesz uses guitar[1] and notebook computers to make multilayered compositions that blend melody and conventionalmusical instruments with harsh, irregular glitch-influenced sounds and washes of white noise. He lives and works in Vienna,Austria. Christian Fennesz’s trademark sound combines guitar playing with digital techniques like granular synthesis. This style hasbeen described as “Rock meets PowerBook”. His oeuvre is far broader though - he’s been at the forefront of digital music for many years now. Hotel Paral.lel won the PrixArs Electronica Award of Distinction for Digital Musics in 1999 along with Pita’s Seven Tons For Free. At the frontier of contemporary music is Fennesz: a meticulous laptop conceptualist who weaves tangible melodies andglowing guitars through dense, symphonic electronica. Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirlingelectronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. “Imagine the electric guitar severed from cliché and all of itsphysical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.” - (City Newspaper, USA). Christian Fennesz is known from his own particular musical world as well as his impeccable work in creating beautifulcompositions for guitar. « hide
