    Fennesz: As former member of the Austrian experimental rock band Maische, Fennesz is well known for performing at various festivals (Phonotaktik, Hyperstrings, Sonar, Ars Electronica, club transmediale and others). It can be said that he is appraised as a doyen of electronic music. On a regular basis he works with the big names of contemporary electronic music. With artist Gina Czarnecki he collaborated on a video installation. From time to time he also leaves the drone and wall of guitar sounds behind, which are often attributed to him, to convert his dissonant workings e.g. with Ryuichi Sakamoto’s piano play into the field of melody. Fennesz releases on Touch Music. After Venice (2004, Touch Music) his latest record Black Sea (2009, Touch Music) came out. Over time he worked with Keith Rowe, Sparklehorse and David Sylvian and was member of the trio Fenn O’Berg.
