More Info

"LTD box set 500 copies (gatefold 2LP, CD of the album, DVD, 12 p. photo book) Christian Fennesz is an Austrian electronic musician, active since the late nineties, and influenced by artists like the Fripp & Eno of the 1970s and guitar-synth pioneer Chuck Hammer.

Fennesz uses guitar and laptops "to make multilayered compositions that blend melody and conventional musical instruments with harsh, irregular glitch-influenced sounds and washes of white noise." Over the years, Fennesz has played and collaborated with a number of artists including Mike Patton, Jim O'Rourke, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keith Rowe, Peter Rehberg, Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse) and David Sylvain.

In 2012 Fennesz also wrote the OST to the independent Austrian film, Aun, directed by Edgar Honetschlger, and based on the writings of Claude Levi-Strauss.

On this double LP Fennesz can be heard performing to a live audience at a concert held at the Museo Marini in Florence, Italy in February 2012.

The deluxe box set version includes, in addition to the 2LP, a CD of the performance, a 12 page photographic book, and a DVD featuring a 1927 silent film by German filmmaker Walter Ruttmann Berlin called Die Sinfonie der Grostadt (Symphony of a Great City)." [label info]
