Framing 8 == John Butcher tenor & soprano saxophone, feedback tenor on #2 and #6 == Werner Dafeldecker double bass, computer, acoustic guitar == Christian Fennesz computer, acoustic guitar, synthesizer == Michael Moser cello, computer == Burkhard Stangl acoustic & electric guitar, electronics == == == The predominantly Viennese quartet Polwechsel have exhaustively explored the grey areas between composition and improvisation, electronic and acoustic, jazz and classical for much of the past decade. Austrian Christian Fennesz, while initially a guitarist, is primarily known for his abrasive yet melodic laptop explorations on labels such as Mego and Touch. Wrapped Islands documents the much-anticipated first meeting of these two driving forces of contemporary music. == == == Bassist Werner Dafeldecker and cellist Michael Moser co-founded Polwechsel in 1993. The microscopic textures they explored were quite unusual at the time, and proved to be very influential on later waves of 'lower-case' and 'microsound' musicians. They released their self-titled debut disc on Georg GrŠwe's influential Random Acoustics label in 1995 (later reissued on hat ART). John Butcher has been a crucial part of the band on Polwechsel 2 (hat ART), Polwechsel 3 (Durian), and Wrapped Islands. == == Christian Fennesz is possibly the most prominent of the current onslaught of laptop musicians. He burst onto the scene in 1995, with Instrument, a record of deconstructed guitar compositions, and has since explored various combinations of guitar and laptop, melody and distortion, improvisation and postproduction on projects such as Hotel ParaI.lel, Plays, and Endless Summer (all on Mego). HeÕs also an integral member of the all-star electronic orchestra MIMEO and the laptop trio Fennoberg. == == ==
