Christian Fennesz (born 25 December 1962) is an Austrian guitarist active in electronic music, often credited on recordings simply as Fennesz.
Fennesz uses guitar and notebook computers to make multilayered compositions that blend melody and treated samples with glitch-influenced sounds and washes of white noise.[1][2] He lives and works in Vienna, Austria.

Endless Summer is an album by Austrian electronic music producer Fennesz, released on 3 July 2001 by Mego. It was reissued in 2006 with two bonus tracks and new cover art. Like most of Fennesz’s other works, it focuses heavily on digitally manipulated electric guitar sounds, but with a much stronger emphasis on melodies and pop-like composition than on his previous releases. Endless Summer shares its title with a 1974 Beach Boys compilation album. It was named the 41st best album of the decade by Resident Advisor, 14th by Tiny Mix Tapes, and 26th by Pitchfork Media.

NEW VERSION WITH ARTWORK BY TINA FRANK BASED ON THE ORIGINAL 2001 MEGO RELEASE! Endless Summer, originally released in 2001 by Mego, was a breakthrough album for Christian Fennesz. The album which brought his name and music towards the first steps of mainstream recognition. Following on from the more experimental Hotel Paral.lell and the Beach Boys homaged Plays single, Endless Summer brought the guitars more to the front, the electronics shimmered more, and the melodies shined more brightly. It went on to be a classic of its time, topping many end of year polls. In 2006 a new featuring new artwork (the sunset cover) edition was released, newly mixed by Fennesz resulting in a more open sounding version of the tracks, especially the marimba driven Caecilia, the hypnotic Before I Leave, and the towering Happy Audio. In addition to the original 8 tracks, it contained 2 extra titles: Badminton Girl, originally released in 2001 as part of the Split #15 12 with Main on Fat Cat Records (12FAT045), now out of print and Endless, previously unreleased. This new edition in 2010 features the same audio as the 2006 album, but with the original artwork from 2001. It is released to celebrate the forthcoming 10th Anniversary double gatefold vinyl and poster edition, which will contain all the bonus tracks which appear on the Japanese CD version.
