FENNESZ

BRITTON POWELL

----------

Using a filtered and treated electric guitar as the starting point for his lush soundscapes, FENNESZ has created a personal and groundbreaking discourse throughout his career. Perhaps sculpting the last truly unique vision for the guitar, his luminant compositions are anything but sterile experiments. FENNESZ’s world of sound unfolds and resembles sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. In addition to his prolific output as a solo artist, and his ongoing investigation of the limits of noise, automatic composition, field music or contemporary classical, FENNESZ is also a frequent collaborator with other luminaries of the scene. These include artists such as Alva Noto, Oren Ambarchi, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keith Rowe, Peter Rehberg, David Sylvian, and Jim O’Rourke. 

BRITTON POWELL is an American composer and curator living in New York City. Through means of electronics, video, and acoustic instrumentation his work explores psycho-acoustic phenomena, minimalism, and traditions of ethnographic music. The composer's new work entitled "​If Anything Is​" explores themes of hyper-reality and ambient capitalism by means of mixed-media environment for sound and multichannel video. Powell’s music has appeared at venues around the world including Centre Pompidou (Paris), The Barbican Center (London), Today’s Art Festival (Den Haag), Ultima Festival (Oslo), Unsound Festival (Krakow), and The Guggenheim House (Japan). His work has been featured in The New Yorker, Washington Post, Bomb Magazine, and Wire Magazine among others. He has worked on recordings for Warp Records, Mexican Summer Records, Unseen Worlds, and Catch Wave Ltd. Powell works and collaborates with Jon Hassell, Lucy Railton, Huerco S, Matmos, and many others.
