Christian Fennesz is an Austrian electronic composer and guitarist born 1962 in Vienna. Fennesz, who works under his surname only, utilizes guitar and notebook computers to make multilayered compositions that blend melody and treated samples with techno-influenced production. He collaborates with other leading electro-musicians including Ryuichi Sakamoto, Jim O'Rourke and Sparklehorse. One recent project "Mahler Remixed" involved reinterpreting samples of Gustav Mahler's esteemed classical orchestral works, using electo-acoustic processing. Outstanding Fennesz albums include Endless Summer, Venice, Black Sea, Bécs and Agora.
