Text by Youngbloods:

"Blooming from the shadows comes Crépuscule, the forthcoming full-length album by ambient artists Nick Schofield and Stefan Christoff, collaboratively creating as Rêves sonores. Tracked and spliced ​​together over a number of recording sessions, Crépuscule is a collaged tone poem depicting a night wandering through Montreal's fabled Jardin du Crépuscule (Twilight Garden) in Mile End. Schofield and Christoff's collection of works find movement in the night, reconstructing improvisations into eleven illuminating classically tinged compositions.

As a concept, Rêves sonores centers around the basic premise of a moderated musical dialogue; it provides a platform for inspired improvisation to interact with contemporary classical compositions, all of which are reinforced with experimental electronic techniques.

Their first collaboration, titled Rêves sonores à Montréal (2015), saw Schofield reworking a set of Christoff's impressionistic solo piano recordings, using basic tools of musique concrete and synthesis to fundamentally reframe the emotive characteristics of his partner's work. The result, as described by Tiny Mixtapes, was “a collection of tender ambient vignettes.”

Schofield and Christoff theorized the next phase of their Rêves sonores project and how their efforts could scale into something more communal. They began to experiment with incorporating collaborators in concert, featuring guest improvisers like Joseph Shabason, Thanya Iyer, Mika Posen, and Adam Kinner.

Continuing to pursue the ensemble angle, the conception of Crép schedule began with a recording session in New York in 2015. Schofield spent a day documenting Devin Brahja Waldman improvising on saxophone and Christoff on a Steinway grand piano. The most compelling loops from this session were then brought to violinist Ari Swan who provided gestural melodies sweeping across Christoff and Waldman's freeform meditations. In turn, Schofield took these materials to the Banff Center for the Arts and Creativity in Alberta, where he began his in-depth production, recording vintage synthesizers and collaging The album's final stage was handled back home in Montreal where Schofield studied every moment of Crépuscule, deftly editing the instruments to create the semblance of an orchestrated ensemble performing in unison. artist Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem In My Heart) at Hotel2Tango studio. Schofield and Mo umneh strived to convey a mix of lucidity and reverie, a play of shadows, a trick of light --perfectly capturing the eccentric sculptures of the Twilight Garden.

Alight announces Crépuscule's introduction as an orchestra warming up prepares an audience for a symphony performance. Blurred colors of brass reverse themselves through a thin pool of sustained strings. , momentarily coming up for air before quietly decaying into Mondial, Schofield's grandiose “anthem for the Earth.”

The sculptures of the twilight garden have now come to life. Soliloquy and Seers Theme plunge further down the path of the Twilight Garden, surveying its shadowy corners with smoky saxophone and playful midnight blue piano phrases creeping up and down Christoff's keys. As darkness deepens, Crépuscule catalyzes a wider scope of ruminative visuals. Euphoria Phase dances atop elongated synthesized spirits while Svalsbard, evokes icy soundscapes through arctic field recordings provided by sound artist Nick Kuepfer.

Crépuscule's third act captures the witching hours through the twilight garden. Echoes of the album's rich tonal backbone fade into the accented minimalism of Spirodon; kinetic motifs introduced through esoteric chords, string, and saxophone dim behind the plucking of Christoff's introspective piano. pieces, Hearken and the aptly titled Lucidity, inspire movement into clarity, re-opening the garden's gates to this time ascend alongside its conclusive Reprise.

Crépuscule seeks to find an intersection in the unconscious where imagination, intrigue, and expression co-exist. Through the process of assembling and broadening artistic company comes creative configuration, a place where Rêves sonores assumes its true form.
