Five years after Bécs and 2018’s EP Station One, Austrian Vienna-based composer and producer Fennesz announced the release of new full-length. Agora is out on March 29th via Touch. His words about it: “Its a simple story. i had temporarily lost a proper studio workspace and had to move all my gear back to a small bedroom in my flat where I recorded this album. It was all done on headphones, which was rather a frustrating situation at first but later on it felt like back in the day when I produced my first records in the 1990s. In the end it was inspiring. I used very minimal equipment; I didn’t even have the courage to plug in all the gear and instruments which were at my disposal. I just used what was to hand.”
“In My Room” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
