-The Imaginary Soundscapes is the electronic version of a meeting between:
* Stéphane Rives, who uses re-worked samples from his discography mixed with recordings from his daily life and sound environment, a process that builds on Islets of Memories, a project he began in early 2010,
* and Frédéric Nogray, who returns to his early research on feedback, here caused and moderated in real time with three effects pedals, oscillating between minimalism and psychedelia.

A Way Out by Knowing Smile is an imaginary soundscape, a trip in two parts. The first part, as well as some of the sounds featured in the second part, come from a live improvisation performed by the duo at Walimat Wardeh, Beirut, in June 2010, as part of Serge Yared’s Greedy Ears series. Fadi Tabbal recorded the session. The rest of the material on part 2 was recorded during practice sessions leading up to the Greedy Ears performance.
This CD was recomposed and mixed by Frédéric Nogray at Studio No*Mad, from November 2010 through February 2011, in Paris, Athens, Cairo and Istanbul. Mastered by The Imaginary Soundscapes and Fadi Tabbal at Tunefork Studios, Beirut.

The cover picture, "In the Cell of the Star", is part of the "Andara Paintings" series by Frédéric Nogray.
