Seven Stars

Always lovely to get some vinyl from Touch and this I believe is their first 10" record, perfectly suited to contain these four tracks from the esteemed Christian Fennesz. Here he's operating with acoustic and electric guitars, bass, synths and of course computers. Opener '...view item »

Mahler Remix

Mahler Remix: in which erstwhile electro-acoustic guitarist Fennesz builds a performance mostly out of samples from the symphonies of Gustav Mahler. Billowing orchestral clouds come in and out of view, along with granulated tones and mangled shards of guitar. A hazy freefall into classical music history...view item »


Christian "Fennesz" Fennesz isn't a lad who rushes himself. The last time he put out a full-length album was 2008 so you can bet he's put some thought and effort into the seven tracks here. I'm on my third go through it and still struggling to find words to describe the sumptuous listening experience this album provides. There's something quite ...view item »

Fennesz: Venice (10th Anniversary Edition)

Fennesz continued his glitch 'n' fuzz operations on 'Venice', zapping listeners with more white noise and temperamental synth melody. The record was made out in the waterlogged city itself, and while it dabbles in some of the same pop disciplines as its predecessor, 'Endless Summer', it feels more like an experimental soundscape, the soundtrack ...view item »

King Midas Sound / Fennesz
Edition 1

Real heavyweight collaboration right here! King Midas Sound, Kevin Martin’s vehicle for enormous bass and dark soulful songs, join up with none other than Fennesz, the wizard of electronically processed guitar haze. The resultant Edition 1 is a suitably weighty and textured trip, ...view item »

17.02.12 - Box Set

The date 17.02.12 was the date that the people of Florence got to see Fennesz perform live. Now you too can experience the electroacoustic laptop / guitar wizard working his magic, with this box-set. As well as the performance on CD and 2 LPs, the box also contains a photo booklet and a DVD with Walter Ruttman...view item »

King Midas Sound / Fennesz
Edition 1 (Instrumentals)

King Midas Sound and Fennesz delighted many fans of experimental music with their recent surprise collaboration on Edition 1. Now we have the instrumental versions. It seems almost a shame to strip away the wonderful vocals of Kiki Hitomi and Roger Robinson, but this do...view item »

Fennesz / OZmotic

Fennesz of course is a cherished artist in electronic/ experimental music. OZmotic is a name that’s new to me but appears to be the duo of Stanislao Lesnoj (Soprano sax, visual, electronics) and SmZ (drums, objects and electronics). Together they join Fen...view item »

Sparklehorse & Fennesz
In the Fishtank

You wouldn't expect Sparklehorse and Fennesz to bump into each other that often, but one bump has turned out to be significant and has grinded out the latest In The Fishtank which I didn't even realise was still a going concern. It generally amounts to a gorgeous and relaxing listen, with Mark Linkous's stargazing country guitar plucking often gent...view item »


Anything Fennesz has created in the last 5 years or so I love. In my opinion, the more melodic he becomes, the more accessible his electronic innovations move me. It seems after working with Ryuichi Sakamoto, his gift for melody has increased exponentially, but this may have nothing to do with Sakamoto, so ...view item »

Fa 2012

Here’s a rare sight. It’s a Fennesz 12”! I don’t think I’ve seen one of those before. ‘Fa 2012’ is a remix of ‘Fa’ which was the debut track on 1997’s ‘Hotel Paral.lel’. 15...view item »


Okay, I’ve never seen the film which this Fennesz CD is the soundtrack to which leaves me with a slight handicap in being able to appreciate the intentions of this music, but the stills in the booklet are absolutely beautif...view item »

Cedric Stevens / Leyland Kirby / Motion Sickness Of Time Travel / Fennesz
The Syncopated Elevators Legacy

First up, the item description for this might be a bit confusing/misleading so let me tell you before I really get started that this is a Cedric Stevens record, with a remix disc featuring reworks from the other artists mentioned and more, not some kind of split or collaboration....view item »

Fennesz + Sakamoto

This is the third full on collaboration between these two heavyweights of your neo-classical ambient genre or whatever you want to call it. It came about when Sakamoto played an improvised piano piece in a different key to open up each show of some world tour or other. He then sent the ta...view item »

Jasper TX, Fennesz, Various
Musique Pour Statues Menhirs

OK here's a belting 2 CD on France's very own Arbouse Records. There's been some top releases on the label and this one seems to be about the best I've heard so far. Musique Pour Statues Menhirs is a 2 disc beast featuring exclusive (oh yes I said exclusive) tracks by Fennesz, Rafael Anton Irisarri, parlous, Serafine Steer, Benoit Pioulard, Astrid,...view item »

Afternoon Tea

Originally released in the year 2000 (wasn't that the future?) I have to confess I missed the first edition of 'Afternoon Tea' that was released through Ritornell. Now Oren Ambarchi's Black Truffle label have reissued the disc with a new master, new artwork by Stephen O'Malley and extra tracks. Now on paper, the quintet of Ambarchi/ Fennesz/...view item »

Fennesz / Daniell / Buck

I really like Christian Fennesz. Tony Buck's in The Necks who I really like too. I don't think I've got an opinion on David Daniell (I'm pretty sure I've heard something of his before but memory is a fickle mistress) but since the other two obviously really like him then I do too. I guess you might be thinking that I'm gonna like this. Well it h...view item »

Live In Japan

The eagerly awaited FENNESZ live in Japan LP on Autofact is finally with us and it begins with heavy malfunctioning dub machinations submerged in hiss and fuzz. Like Chain Reaction / Rhythm & Sound forced through a big glitch machine and then submerged in the ocean. The track...view item »

Fennesz, Phillip Jeck, Various
Spire Live – Fundamentalis

Spire Live: Fundamentalis (Autofact/Touch) As a couple of customers have already added some very glowing recommendations to this much anticipated document, not to mention the very informative press notes from Touch, it doesn't leave me with much room to big this up enough. As I attended the fuseleeds06 leg of this project, missed out on the York ...view item »

Endless Summer

Apparently this is an electronic classic spouts Phil so that makes it 3rd hand info at least. It's by FENNESZ called Endless Summer. It's been reviewed before so I don't think my melody driven heads going to help things. I kind of sounds like its being fast forwarded all the time. Pahhh my ignorance. If you like interesting, unique sound...view item »

Fennesz/ Sakamoto

The second Fennesz Sakamoto collaboration 'Cendre' is out now on Touch. You probably know what to expect here. The Japanese piano master Ryuchi Sakamoto tinkles on the old ivories to produce ultra chilled bliss while Mr Fennesz pulls out his electronic boxes and field recordings. This reminds me of a Harold Budd and Brian Eno album I was listening ...view item »

Fennesz, Matmos, Various

Another compilation on Fat Cat this time it features DAT Politics, Kid 606, Fennesz, Matmos, David Grubbs. Com.A and loads of others. Its a compilation of those split series 12"'s so if  you want them all on CD here's your chance. It's called Split Series 9-16...view item »
