On 17th February, 2012, Christian Fennesz performed a live score to Edgar Honetschläger's independent Austrian film, 'Aun', based on the Claude Levi-Strauss, at the Museo Marini in Florence, Italy. This opulent boxset features documentary evidence of the spellbinding show in the form of two LPs and CD, featuring the one-man symphony orchestra rendering a hypnotic, convective and richly evocative soundtrack from his guitar and improvised electronic treatments. We shouldn't need to tell you, but it's really quite special and thoroughly recommended to fans of Fennesz's noisy romanticism.
