((Fennesz)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Vienna's finest experimental electronic noisemaker, Christian Fennesz, creates entirely unique sounds of processed music. His highly acclaimed album Endless Summer was an interpretation of (and homage to) the Beach Boys. He fed their songs through the Mac processor, Fennesz-style, and came up with mystifying sonic reconstructions.

This isn't your daddy's Brian Wilson. Fennesz tends to program dark, dense compositions using a slew of strings and off-kilter percussion. He heavily distorts his computer instruments of choice creating a moody, and vaguely melodic, atmosphere that's entirely too complex to grasp on the first listen. He deconstructs and alters sound, stripping away the whole to reveal the beauty of its parts. Fennesz isn't always an easy listen but it's always a gratifying one.
