"Este disco recoge en un largo y profundo viaje sonoro de 71 minutos una selección de doce exquisitas y placenteras piezas compuestas enre los años 2008 y 2011 por el proyecto francés sito en un pueblecito cercano a Lille, al norte del país, Sonorefiction. Se desmarca, en su planteamiento y desarrollo, por el amor por la naturaleza, lo que se refleja en la inclusión de grabaciones de campo de ecosistemas campestres y marítimos, y por el hecho de hacer hincapié en el valor del silencio en el entorno. Un álbum de una musicalidad que se desplaza y danza sinuosamente entre la electroacústica y el dub, el minimalismo y los grandes espacios, las visiones microscópicas y los enfoques telescópicos, muy disfrutable como música de ambiente, invitando al periplo, a la observación, a la contemplación, pero altamente recomendable también como propuesta para una escucha atenta, dada su riqueza sonora y su gran desenvoltura en la capacidad compositiva. Un conjunto generoso, que respira y nos estimula a respirar hondamente, lo que agradecemos. En pocas palabras, esta obra nos aporta inmensidad a la vez que cercanía, y una plenitud ejemplar. Es éste el primer larga duración en soporte físico del autor, tras numerosos EP editados en netlabels (Monokrak y Sirona Records). El propio Sonorefiction, como alma curiosa, es el responsable de otro sello, nacido hace tan sólo unos meses: Bruits Netlabel, orientado hacia la música experimental." Sarah Vacher /LusciniaDiscos   . "Ce disque de 71 minutes propose un voyage profond à travers une sélection de 12 pièces exquises composées et enregistrées entre 2008 et 2011 par Sonorefiction, près de Lille, Nord de la France. Il se démarque par le thème de l'amour de la nature, à travers l'utilisation d'enregistrements sonores faits sur le terrain (en campagne, ou sur le littoral) et insiste sur la valeur du silence dans l'environnement. Un album empreint de musicalité et de rythmes dansants, qui ondule entre electro et dub, minimalisme et espaces ouverts, très agréable en musique de fond car invitant au voyage, à l'observation et à la contemplation, mais aussi méritant une écoute plus attentive et approfondie compte-tenu de sa richesse sonore et de ses compositions hardies. Un ensemble généreux qui nous incite à respirer profondément. Bref, cet album tout en intimité et en plénitude exemplaire nous apporte beaucoup. Il s'agit du premier album long de l'auteur, après plusieurs EPs sortis sur différents netlabels ( MonoKrak et SironaRecords). Telle une âme curieuse, Sonorefiction est aussi responsable de Bruitsnetlabel, né il y a quelques mois, orienté musique expérimentale."

"Sonorefiction from Lille [...] already had some releases on net labels and 'Mirages' is their first physical release. Its total electronic music and the first few pieces here reminded me of the classic Chain Reaction sound. Bouncing rhythms from machines, feeding through echo and delay machines with not strict dance music but its never far away. That's not the tone for the entire release however, since there is also pieces that are more ambient like including spacious synthesizers and field recordings of running water. Then is that curious piece of lounge music in 'Silver Lagoon' (their titles give away something, there is also 'Silent Watering'…). I thought this was a great release, highly varied (and that is what makes it original) electronic music of great quality. [...] I played this three times in a row while doing the accounting for last year. I wonder why nobody's ever heard of them? Surely there are adventurous labels out there who like a new name to dance-like tunes?" Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly # 818, 7/2/2012 "Mirages" de Sonorefiction [...] qui compte plusieurs albums sur netlabels, est un premier album sur CD. Musique électronique dont les premiers titres me rappellent les sons du classique Chain Reaction. Rythmes rebondissants de machines nourris d'échos et de delays, pas tout à fait de la musique de dancefloor, mais jamais très loin. Toutefois ce n'est pas la tonalité totale de l'album, car on y trouve également des morceaux qui sont plus ambiant incluants des synthétiseurs aériens et des field-recordings de ruisseaux par exemple. Puis il y a ce curieux morceau de musique lounge "Silver Lagoon" (ses titres sont évocateurs, comme "Silent Watering"). Je pense que c'est un grand album, très varié (et c'est ce qui le rend original) de musique électronique de grande qualité. [...]. Je l'ai écouté trois fois de suite en faisant ma comptabilité de l'année écoulée! Je me demande pourquoi personne n'a entendu parler de lui? Probablement qu'il y a des labels innovants qui aimeraient un nouveau nom en musique dansante?"


"Sonorefiction adapted a variety of folk pulses—Native American, Hindu, Latin—and assimilated them into Mirages without having them seem this least bit out of place among his own, homegrown beats. And he sculpted sonic textures that although airy are far from insubstantial.
With his first physical release, Sonorefiction from Lille, France, intends to take the listener on a journey “beyond the rational.” Rhythmic ambience might be the right prism through which to view its sound, lightly choreographed, ritual mind dances.
There is a locomotive and alpine motif that threads its way through the album. ”Keolis (Wind Heartbeat)” opens the album very organically, but even the by-rote and electronically programmed drumming—”À la Paresse” and ”Noma” are good examples—has a lively pliancy, like young, green branches. The rhythms and the ambiences are perfectly complementary, neither overtaking the other. It’s the whirling of the universe and the earth humming along. Both are subtle but distinct. “Pagura’s Home” draws deep, underwater breaths and is reminiscent of some of the classic moments of the second wave of ambient music, not unlike a warmer-climate Biosphere.
“Silent Watering” is an animated mash-up of field recording and deft drum’n bass, where a splashing, gurgling stream is converted into a beat. Directly after, “Silver Lagoon” comes literally crashing in, carrying an utterly mood-changing, funky bassline groove in on its curl. The ten-minute “Ayashuasca,” named after a psychoactive vine which grows in Peru brewed into tea and imbided by shamans, gives a mild and pleasant, bongo-beat buzz. The other lengthy track is dedicated to “weird fiction” pioneer H.P. Lovecraft. With its viscous, woozy atmosphere and tinny, strangulated vocal rant, it’s the bad trip on the album, a trip which fortunately ends with the exhilarating, head stuck out the window of a train rushing through the mountains “LoLib Dance,” not unreminiscent of Banco da Gaia’s “Last Train to Lhasa,” but less cluttered.
At seventy-one minutes, it is a generous, diverse offering. The mix of approaches works since there is a strong, unifying theme and intent."

"Noise, ambient, drone, field recordings, minimal ... or all what you need, SonoreFiction is an open minded artist with an open heart, who open his arms to you for you to open your soul!"   Arnaud Barbe SironaRecords 2012

"From noise to deep minimal techno, from ethnic to single-shot post-punk impro, from glitch to sky-gaze ethereal,  from experiment to minimal trance, these tracks are as varied than astonishing as many variations around "Eolis", an Aeolian harps ambient track.
These artists from different cultures and countries (England, Japan, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy, Australia, France ...) of musical styles and sound viewpoint far away each other, sent us their very own "Eolis" interpretation, and far from basic remixes, these tracks draw us into their personal worlds, rich, complex and loaded with real inner emotions."
[EolisFreeProject/VariousArtists/Mono97/2011]

Sonore Fiction "Musrhum Party" on lofi version, 60 tracks EP... Why lofi?
Low bit (short for low bitrate, also known as lobit) is a musical aesthetic characterized by lossy data compression artifacts caused by encoding songs at low bitrates. Artists making low-bit music believe that if a song is good, it can be appreciated at any bitrate or on any speakers. The low-bit style emerged as an avant-garde reaction to the perceived bitrate snobbery in the organized music piracy (on peer-to-peer networks) and net label scenes. It also shares a strong do-it-yourself ethic with punk ideology.
