Vague Imaginaires – L’Île Volante – CD – Versatile Records

“Anchored in the real world to better escape it.” Vague Imaginaires collaborates with marginalised individuals;

Ransom Note

Like some film directors, Vague Imaginaires (“Imaginary Wave”) will sometimes collaborate with non-professionals: homeless, psychiatric patients, social workers, refugees… the left-behinds. The melancholy within his music is “that of those who couldn’t leave for the stars or the islands, the great tragedy of the forgotten ones.”
His music is characterized by entanglement: double melodies interweaving, and synths fusing with non-musical sounds: “Crickets in a palm grove, rain on a barn, freshly cut pieces of wood clicking, spring water running on froth, birds in the meadow, coal clattering on a fire, thunder on the lake, soft waves on the beach. These enchanting sounds that make places what they are.”
Anchored in the real world to better escape it, his music comforts and reconciles us with it, transforming reality into “a new, voluptuous world, a graviton-less exoplanet, like flying in a dream. »

Comme certains réalisateurs de cinéma, Vague Imaginaires collabore à l’occasion avec des non-professionnels : sans-abris, patients d’HP, travailleurs sociaux, ouvriers, réfugiés… le ban de la société. La mélancolie qui habite sa musique « est celle de ceux qui n’ont pas pu partir pour les étoiles ou les îles, c’est la grande tragédie des oubliés. »
Ses compositions se caractérisent par les enchevêtrements : ceux des doubles mélodies, et ceux des synthés avec des sons non-musicaux : « Les criquets d’une palmeraie, la pluie sur la grange, l’entrechoc de bouts de bois fraîchement coupés – un peu de douceur après beaucoup de tronçonneuses – de l’eau de source qui coule sur la mousse, les oiseaux de la plaine, les cliquetis du charbon sur le feu, le tonnerre sur le lac, les vagues douces de la plage. Ces sons enchanteurs qui font de chaque lieu ce qu’il est. »
En s’ancrant dans le vrai pour mieux s’en échapper, il console et nous réconcilie avec la réalité, que sa musique transforme en « un monde nouveau, une exoplanète sans gravitons, un monde de volupté, comme quand on rêve qu’on vole. »

Caja Negra Mixtape for Tepeme Musica

“… made under the auspices of the old and eternal authority of Tonatiuh, who was present in picture in the form of a postcard that my sister brought me back from her trip to your land a while ago and which came out of a drawer like by magic.
It is a dream from the stars through the wind in the woods, descending from the mountain towards the frenzy of the living on earth; an ode to all the systems that feed on the sun.”

The music of Grenoble gardener Denis Morin aka Vague Imaginaires cross-pollinates modal synthetics, equatorial ambience, and drum circle minimalism into ecological fantasies of “natural forces and enchanted worlds.” Si así se describe su música, imagina su selección.

Denis, you left us speechless with your Caja Negra dreamlike delivery. What a ride 🦄🦄🦄

Artwork: in the w o n d e r of light

Symphony of the forest and breath of the ocean helped to remember how to come back to myself…A mystery revealed…Looking around and seeing the distance traveled, unbearably obvious why this necklace of events adorns my chest…And all that mind games only created unnecessary variations – apparently just for no reason, for illusional purpose, perhaps not to be bored…But was it? This is not that it all about…The most important thing – is that here and now, I am truly free…

Once having experienced these states, nostalgia periodically rolls over and the inner voice impatiently shouts:

-“I want this to happen again and again!” Do something!

Then you can feel some kind of heaviness or something…Don’t know how to describe…Oh yes! Like Sisyphus, he understands it for sure…At the peak of this experience, for some reason, a quote pops up – seems it was Nietzsche…Hmm…Or it was one of the Sufi masters…Ok, it’s not so important, the bottom line is that everything that we call matter – possesses memory and that’s why I am traveling in this forest, enjoying the atmosphere and exploring new round of spiral – much further than life itself…

Layer within a celestial unity the light was beyond and within its fragments, merging into each other in eternity and becoming new chapter of Amateur Exotic mixtales!
