Fennesz / Sakamoto

The River to River Festival is going on in NYC right now and they have cool free events almost everyday. Last week, we went to see Christian Fennesz and Ryuichi Sakamoto at the World Financial Center.

The stage the World Financial Center was a great building, you can see the water right outside, too:

Their music was very experimental, ambient, soothing, and it was great to see them play live for sure.
