Yaroslavl - February 11, Saturday, Yaroslavl Art Nuseum (Volzhskaya nab., 23, phone: +7 (4852) 72-91-35, e-mail: llg[at]mail[dot]ru).


Miguel Angel Ruiz, from Madrid, is one of the main reference names of the Spanish experimental electronic music during the 80s, together with artists such as Esplendor Geometrico, Macromassa, Francisco Lopez, Avant Dernieres Pensees, Comando Bruno, Diseno Corbusier, etc. Times, by the way, that should be recovered for all the good stuff that was recorded during those years by the artists mentioned before and by many others. And times when, without any minimal recording infrastructure as regards labels, record companies and distribution, only saved by the arousal of small companies such as Discos Esplendor Geometrico or Linea Alternativa, many of the artists resorted to the autoedition using cassettes and creating labels such as I.E.P., Necronomicon, Proceso Uvegraf, Auxilio De Cientos, Clonaciones Petunio. This was precisely the case of Miguel A. Ruiz, who created in 1986 his own tape label called Toracic Tapes. Since then, through this and other domestic, European and American labels, he has published an extensive catalogue of recordings using different monikers depending on each project: Orfeon Gagarin (the most famous), Ventral Metaphor, Funeral Souvenir, besides the many works edited under his own name or as Exhaustor in the late 90s.

M.A. Ruiz started to work on first pieces at his home studio in 1982, focused on the abstract and pseudocosmic electronic music with his new Korg MS-20. In 1986 he inaugurates the catalogue of Toracic Tapes with the legendary first cassette of Orfeon Gagarin, an eclectic combination that goes from environmental sounds to industrial noise, including cut-up exercises and some ethnic contrast. From there, Miguel A. Ruiz's production is non-stop, he realised between 1986 and 1992 more than a dozen cassette recordings either signing as Orfeon Gagarin or with his real name. Works such as "KEDR" (1987), "Batan Bruits" (1987), "La Noche del Anhidrido" (1987), "El Niсo Carburador" (1989), "Biscuit Circuit" (1991) or "Vasarely" (1991) are considered today worthy of worship by the Spanish electronic experimentation panorama.

In 1991 a tape sent to Asmus Tietchens finally gave birth to his first magnificent LP "Encuentros en la Tercera Edad", published by Hamburger Musikgesellschaft. Already in 1994 appears Orfeon Gagarin's compilation CD "Contestacion Capilar" and two years later with the name Exhaustor, he presents a new sonorous facet orientated towards the most rhythmic and ruthless techno, whose presentation was "Coaxial" CD.

Miguel A. Ruiz has also collaborated actively with Luis Mesa (three tapes between 1986 and 1989 under the name Tecnica Material), with Siegmar Fricke (Efficient Refineries, with several works published from 1995 to 2003), Francisco Lopez, Dieter Mauson, etc. Next to Hector Hernandez he published in 1989 the tape "Han llegado los robots", born as a hypothetic soundtrack and whose source of reference is the book by Rolf Strehl "Die Roboter sind unter uns" from the end of the 50s. This album was remastered and re-released on CD in 2005 by Miguel's own new label Batan Bruits.

During the shows there will be a sale of Miguel's new album «Grosor» released by Russian label Monochrome Vision as well as his other albums and other releases of Monochrome Vision and ZHELEZOBETON.
