“Imagine the electric guitar severed from cliché and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.”
(City Newspaper, USA)
Christian Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. Fennesz’s guitar and laptop live set demonstrate why he remains one of the most engaging musicians using electronics.
Five years later after his last record, Christian Fennesz will make the Schullian garden vibrate with the vortex electronic sound of his new record, Agorà. His treatment of the laptop and guitar allow each to give up its identity to the other, exquisite guitar washes loosing 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.
