With a guitar and computer Fennesz creates shimmering, swirling electronic sounds of enormous range and complex musicality to shape a bold new musical language. His lush and luminant compositions resemble sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece.
Britton Powell opens the night with selected pieces from his forthcoming work, If Anything Is.
