Detailed information:

Geometrik Records, in collaboration with the author, is pleased to offer a new edition of The Box of the Insomniac Songs, the most fascinating release of Spanish electronic music pioneer Suso Saiz.  It was originally released in a very limited self-edition that is sold out for ten years. Now it is offered with a totally different artwork, in an artisan-crafted 8 CDs box , limited and hand numbered, of delicately beautiful content, in the form of spectral and extensive soundscapes (in some approaching an hour of length). These are recordings made over ten years, between 1992 and 2006.

As Suso explains: "Much of the material that is in " The Box of The Insomniac Songs " arises from two needs: one, effectively was to get sleep for my insomnia problems and this caused automatisms and spontaneity at the time of recording. But without a doubt the need to experience new paths for me, is in each of the 8 discs that "The Box" contains ... There are eight hours of experimental homemade recordings, conceived at dawn and with references to particular myths like "2001: a Space Odyssey", Stanley Kubrick's movie. They helped me to wake up every morning with my brain cleaner "

No doubt The Box of The Insomniac Songs” is a landmark in the "ambient" music performed in Spain and at the level of the "classics" worldwide in this genre. Limited edition of 200 boxes made by hand one by one in special thick cardboard with fabric texture,  numbered and signed by Suso Sáiz !, including the 8 CDs and a triptych with the credits.

Having been at the forefront of Spain´s experimental music scene since the late 1970s, multi-instrumentalist Suso Sáiz formed the pivotal group Orquesta de las Nubes and studio project Música Esporádica, releasing a string of albums on  Madrid´s cult labels such as Grabaciones Accidentales and NO-CD Rekords. 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 Jorge Reyes, Steve Roach, Salif Keita, and Fennesz.  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. Suso Sáiz remains an exploratory musician in a musical universe that knows no boundaries. Last year the prestigious dutch label Music From Memory released a retrospective of works by Sáiz in double album & CD (Odisea. 2016), and recently their last work “Rainworks” (2017).
