About Fennesz

Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. His lush and luminant compositions are anything but sterile computer experiments. They resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. He lives and works in Vienna.

Fennesz is represented by Shakti (Music). For live bookings and general enquiries please contact Danilo Pellegrinelli:

He is published by Touch Music / Fairwood Music (UK) Ltd. designed by Philip Marshall.
