i was organizing my records and i realized i owned so many of this dudes records. if you count the cds that i used to own and have sold i think ive given this dude more money than most of my favorite artists...

the 'field recordings' collection is really strong, i am listening to it right now and theres some dope jamzz

the fenn o'berg records rule.

also great:
Cloud with Keith Rowe, Toshimaru Nakamura and Oren Ambarchi (2005)

I remember really liking this:
Plus Forty Seven Degrees 56' 37" Minus Sixteen Degrees 51' 08" (1999)

been a while tho. I never listened to his solo records much. endless summer never clicked either. plays is cool.

xpost - oh yeah! field recordings is nice.

four years since i paid attention to a fennesz record /: though i do remember 'black sea' being ... i don't know, tonally more expansive and emotionally more affecting than other things i associate him with

would like to hear the one with rowe and nakamura and ambarchi. who is ambarchi?

voted 'plays' but ... you know

thomp, Friday, 4 May 2012 21:03 (1 year ago) Permalink

who is ambarchi?

notable exclusion from spin magazines 101 guitar gods list, has a very good new record out on touch atm

Lamp, Friday, 4 May 2012 21:06 (1 year ago) Permalink

how did i stop knowing about christian fennesz after 2005? besides black sea i guess.

i really want to hear Knoxville with David Daniell and Tony Buck (2010)

i love what he does in a group, as an improviser or whatever. i think i'd take group/live fennesz over his solo work every time.

endless summer is totally amazing

yo just a couple (Matt P), Friday, 4 May 2012 21:16 (1 year ago) Permalink

'a year in a minute' is one of my favorite things hes done but ive grown sort of cold to the rest of that album, i might dig it out tonight tho and see if i can figure out why

Lamp, Friday, 4 May 2012 21:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

Good poll. head goes "Live in Japan" but heart goes "Endless Summer". I hadn't heard it, only read about it, before I bought it. I found it in a record shop in Barcelona, we came back to the apartment from a pre Sonar event a little wasted and I put it on. Amazing stuff. Still think about it being one of the best music discoveries of my lifetime.

'a year in a minute' is what i was thinking of when i typed that! i'm being wowed by the seven stars 10" at the moment. missed u fennesz.

disk 2 of cloud is gorgeous.

the GRM experience Christian Fennesz, Vainio, Zanési) recording is not on this list, that one's real good too.

plays, then instrument, then endless summer, then black sea

The Knoxville record is tremendous. It has to be Endless Summer but this guy is goooood.

Badmotorfinger Debate Club (MFB), Saturday, 5 May 2012 07:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

Endless Summer is a bit front-loaded imo, but that 1st side has some of my fave CF stuff. Voted Live In Japan but this guy is so solid, Field Recordings and Venice and Plays and the harsher Mego stuff are all top notch. Never bothered to track down a lot of the collab stuff but maybe I should check out the Fenn O'Berg eh?

indeed

happy audio is nice

nakhchivan, Saturday, 5 May 2012 17:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

Don't know all of these (need to investigate Fenn O'Berg), but probably Venice of what I do know.

"Field Recordings" is his most consistent album, although "Live In Japan" probably captures the essence of Fennesz a little better.

I've only heard about half of these though.

'Field Recordings' for me, there's nothing else like it.

phuturephase, Sunday, 6 May 2012 11:14 (1 year ago) Permalink

Endless Summer was my window into ambient so that. Never heard the Field Recordings album. **Listening**

musicfanatic, Sunday, 6 May 2012 14:05 (1 year ago) Permalink

I've been wanting to hear that live Japan recording for years, almost a decade now, but never see it in any record stores. May have to breakdown and order it online.

musicfanatic, Sunday, 6 May 2012 14:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

Same for me. I think I listen to Endless Summer the most, although there are one or two weak tracks. I quite like Black Sea and Venice too. I remember really liking Return of Fenn o'Berg so I don't know why I haven't listened in years. I don't think I've heard Cloud! That's an exciting lineup.

EveningStar (Sund4r), Sunday, 6 May 2012 14:17 (1 year ago) Permalink

discovered him through venice, must have listened to it every day for months. would like to hear that knoxville record.

sonderangerbot, Sunday, 6 May 2012 14:59 (1 year ago) Permalink

4 weeks till poll closes, hmm maybe i'll throw in my 2c. bought endless summer and venice, really tried for a long time to get into them without much success. field recordings sounded pretty good last night though, especially the driving beat in instrument #1.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

Venice for me - the Sylvian track fits so oddly with the rest but gives it this whole old Europe tonality. Perfect album to cross the Bosphorus to.

I never managed to get into Black Sea, which always bored the hell out of me. Seven Stars is a winner though.

Oh no whoops, it's a new pressing of an old record. Anyone heard it? Brandlmayer and Dafeldecker were both involved in one of my favourite projects of the 00's, Autistic Daughters w/ Dean Roberts.

Black Sea only received one vote? Huh. I couldn't listen to it every day, but it is some of the most stunning headphone music on which I've ever laid ears... rewards patience and attentive listening.

in stereo is poorly rated, but it's one of the most unified-sounding 'collabs' of the fenn o'berg stuff.

been listening to it the last couple days.. first track (30+ minute collaboration) is real nice, roomy. the subsequent three tracks are each individual efforts and tie in nicely w/the general theme. sort of melancholy western (romance) music. affecting stuff.

Lowell N. Behold'n, Monday, 25 June 2012 16:45 (1 year ago) Permalink

everybody should hear Brandlmayer and Siewert's 'too beutiful to burn'. incredible stuff.
