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, Shay 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.

Mise_en_scene is Shay Nassi from the city of Tel-Aviv in Israel.

Shay (1977) began to study the art of sound engineering at Jordan Valley College in the north of Israel, where he gained a degree in Practical Sound Engineering. The skills obtained there are clearly visible in the quality and acoustic depth of his production and sound design.

Mise_en_scene's sound is characterized with a style owing as much to the delicate material treatments of minimalism and the lower case movement as it does to the more pensive side of noise, which is marked by a great sense of spatial control, instrumental delicacy and arrangement-related sensibility.
