the imaginary soundscapes is the electronic meeting of stéphane rives who uses re-worked samples from hiw own discography mixed with recordings from his daily life and sound environment, a process that builds on "islet of memories", a project he began in 2010, and frédéric nogray (his solo disc "wuritagu" is still available from us) who returns to his early research on feedback, here caused and moderated in real time with three effects pedals, oscillating between minimalism and psychedelia.

"field factory" is a wonderful ever evolving post-industrial drone that will keep you awake during its 20 minutes...


released July 21, 2014

stéphane rives (mixing and editing of recordings from his daily life and sound environment, sometimes using samples of his own discography)
