五幻想, pronounced "Go Gensou" or 'Five Illusions' in english is the debut work of Anthony Bisset. The album is a compendium of electronic improvisations extracted in real-time from infinitely varying electric currents emanated by modular synthesizers built by the artist under deep lunar influence.
All tracks (except #4) were improvised live without the use of computers. Post production merged field recordings from his extensive travels to create a multi-dimensional yet continuous atmospheric journey; taking flight, circumnavigating the elements and finally landing undamaged in the forest.
