Gatefold double LP version on 180 gram vinyl. Christian Fennesz is an Austrian electronic musician active since the late '90s and influenced by artists like Fripp and Eno and guitar-synth pioneer, Chuck Hammer. Fennesz uses guitar and laptops to created "multilayered compositions that blend melody and conventional musical instruments with harsh, irregular glitch-influenced sounds and washes of white noise." Over the years, Fennesz has played and collaborated with a number of artists, including Mike Patton, Jim O'Rourke, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keith Rowe, Peter Rehberg, Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse), and David Sylvian. In 2012 Fennesz also wrote the original soundtrack to the independent Austrian film, Aun, directed by Edgar Honetschläger, and based on the writings of Claude Levi-Strauss. On this double LP Fennesz can be heard performing in front of a live audience at the beautiful Marino Marini Museum (located in a medieval church) in Florence, Italy in February of 2012, backed by the images of the 1927 silent film by German filmmaker Walter Ruttmann Berlin called Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (Symphony of a Great City).
