Crónica is delighted to present a new release from Shay Nassi’s project Mise_en_scene, after the previous 443 and Leftovers (Reworked). Nassi hails from Tel Aviv, where he began studying sound engineering, obtaining a degree in Practical Sound Engineering. He subsequently put those skills to good use producing music where he delicately integrates elements of minimalism and noise.
Primary Fields is a series of works based on the same single field recording in different variations. In each of the six pieces in this release, Nassi presents the recording in a different context, developing new sonic results and allowing various interpretations. The composition process started from the preparation and editing of the field recordings, while ideas were sketched and patches were programmed in a modular synth. The field recordings were then played through the patch and manipulated towards the creation of new layers and loops, with each of the pieces in Primary Fields resulting from recordings of these performances.
