I am a huge Fennesz fan. For me, the pure ingenious music is perhaps more meaningful that the Boards at times (but I do like the Boards a ton too).
He's just SO interesting. The music has a curiousity to it, a deep meaning that is twisting and changing constantly. His abrasive jarring tracks like "The Stone of Impermanence" are met with his funky, clunky tracks like "Before I Leave" and it's just so dramatically different.
He collaborated with Ryuichi Sakamoto on one of the best ambient albums I've heard, Cendre, and that alone is just gold.
I saw him live in San Francisco last year, on a rare tour of North America, and it was a great experience. I hope so much he comes back.
There isn't too much of a point to this thread, but I guess I'm sort of wondering if I'm alone here. I figured I might as well ask. Any huge Fennesz fans? Anyone know of a fan site?
