Atmosphreq_Northwest Mise En Scéne_nore016_LoResArt

Philadelphia’s James Falconi returns to NOREMIXES as Atmosphreq with a sophomore release that builds upon the sonic palette of his 2015 self-titled debut. However, Northwest mise en Scéne feels less like a follow up and more like an accompaniment: the needed bookend to contain the composer’s strident soundscapes. The release is broken up by only 3 moments of silence, with each pairing of tracks evolving into opaque textures of phase shifts and disorienting rhythm throbbing.

The EP is released Friday, March 11th through all digital retailers and streaming sites, but you can preview and preorder the release direct from our Bandcamp page now and you’ll receive ‘Immutable’ instantly. Check it out below.

Atmosphreq has sent over hi-res scans of the photos from his limited edition self-titled Photo Box to share with everyone.  If you missed it when it was released earlier this year, definitely check it out in the store.  The hand developed original photos come with digital download codes.


Atmosphreq is the moniker of Philadelphia-based composer James Falconi. Though his career in music began with performance, playing and recording with various bands for nearly 10 years, his strength and main interest became composition. After a period of creating contemporary classical music for concert presentation, his main focus has become electro-acoustic music that is not intended for the concert hall, but various outlets including audio recordings, video, and installations. This self-titled release is his first as Atmosphreq.

Although music is what NOREMIXES does, and at its heart ‘Atmosphreq’ is a music release… James conceived the release as a multimedia project with original photography. Each track on the release is accompanied by a photograph that comments or relates to the music. NOREMIXES is pleased to offer a limited edition physical release consisting of five 4×6 photographs, hand-printed by the composer on high-quality gelatin silver paper (pictured above). Each box contains a download code and is hand-numbered.

The Atmosphreq ‘Black Box’ can be purchased directly from our site. Or on Bandcamp, where you will receive unlimited streaming of the release through the Bandcamp app as well. All orders will mail out Friday, April 3rd.
