Fennesz uses guitar and computer to create shimmering, swirling electronic sound of enormous range and complex musicality. \"Imagine the electric guitar severed from clich and all of its physical limitations, shaping a bold new musical language.\" - (City Newspaper, USA). 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. \'Cendre\', Christian Fennesz\'s latest collaboration with Ryuichi Sakamoto, has been nominated for an EMMA (Ethnic Multicultural Media Awards) Award in the Best World Music Category.
This download-only release accompanies the vinyl release \'Transition\' [Touch # TS04, 2007]. The piece based on 8 different guitar recordings made at Amann Studios, Vienna, between 2005-07. The acoustic guitar was recorded with an Oktava microphone. Other sounds were made using a Fender Stratocaster and a Vox ac15 amp.
