OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN.

I can’t actually remember if I’ve seen Fennesz in concert or not, but given the Austrian’s status as a virtual legend of guitar-centered ambient music, prior experiences in a live setting are almost irrelevant. Him visiting North America will always be a momentous occasion worthy of hyperventilation, and that hyperventilation will always be remedied by naturally remembering Fennesz’s music, which has a special capacity to massage the pleasantly mystical parts of your inner self.

His latest album, Agora, came out on Touch back in March, and outside of that one dude with the back hair who was uncomfortably adjacent this past summer, I doubt 2019 offered anything more memorably fuzzy.

Fennesz will be joined on tour by NYC-based composer and producer, Britton Powell, whose new work If Anything Is reportedly “explores themes of hyper-reality and ambient capitalism by means of mixed-media environment for sound and multichannel video.” It sounds like a fitting complement…if anything is.
