Live in Japan
This release consists of one sublimely beautiful and haunting 43 minute long track, recorded live at the Shibuya Nest, Tokyo in February of 2003. The performance takes us from the bright codeine pop of "Endless Summer" to the haunting melancholy of "Venice", with familiar bits of coda and electronic soul hooks catching us as we stream through the lush, nearly symphonic drones and soundscapes which Fennesz has expertly composed to guide us through his musical legacy.
“Field Recordings” brings together a range of material Christian Fennesz has contributed to compilations, special projects and film soundtracks between the years 1995 and 2002. Also, for the first time on CD, it includes his debut 12" for Mego, the awesome “Instrument”, remastered, and a new track recorded specially for this release, “Good Man”. It is his first release since “Endless Summer” [Mego, 2001] and a prelude to his next studio album, which will be released on Touch in January 2003.
