Suso Saiz - Odisea
CD Album

Suso Saiz


Music From Memory

Released: 17th June 2016 | 22 track downtempo album

Double CD retrospective showcase of solo work from Spanish electronic music pioneer Suso Saiz.

Having been at the forefront of Spain's experimental music scene since the late 1970s, multi-instrumentalist Suso Saiz formed the pivotal group Orquesta de las Nubes and studio project Música Esporadica, releasing a string of albums on Madrid's now cult label Grabaciones Accidentales, which was also home to groups such as Finis Africae, Mecanica Popular, and Ishinohana. A prolific producer, he has recorded with Spain's most singular popular musicians as well as with a number of luminary electronic and world music artists such as Steve Roach, Jorge Reyes, and Salif Keita.

'Odisea' draws material from Suso's early solo works, including music from the rare cassette-only 'Confidencias' as well as pieces from his more recent compositions, soundtrack works and previously unreleased tracks. An artist dedicated to experimentation, Suso's sparse compositions manifest a solitary and stripped back approach to making music. Fascinated by the possibilities of new technology he experimented with guitar loops, synthesizers, and drum computers creating a unique form of musical hypnotism absorbed by avant-garde / minimalist and non-Western musical influences.

The most representative figure of Spain's now cult experimental scene, Suso Saiz remains an exploratory musician in a musical universe that knows no boundaries. 'Odisea' will be followed by a retrospective that will focus on Suso's collaborative work with Orquesta de las Nubes and Música Esporadica.
