Detailed information:

Eduardo Polonio has been one of the key names of Spanish music since the late 1960s, especially as a pioneer in the field of electroacoustic music. He was a member, with Luis de Pablo and Horacio Vaggione, of Grupo Alea Electrónica Libre (1970-1972), the first Spanish group of live electronic music; and he was one of the main figures of Barcelona’s Laboratorio Phonos since 1976. He was also a founding member and president, between 1988 and 1994, of Spain’s Electroacoustic Music Association. In 1994 he received the Magisterium award at the Grand Prix International de Musique Électroacoustique in Bourges, France. He is responsible for an absolutely personal body of work, without any kind of stylistic debts, which has often gone beyond the recording tape in order to establish a dialogue with physical space and other artistic creations, as testified by his numerous collaborations with sculptors, video artists, painters, experimental cinema directors, stage designers, and his own work in the field of installation art.
 
Following our reissue of Polonio’s 1984 LP “Acaricia la mañana”, we present (as a co-release with Geometrik Records) “Bload Stations * Syntax Error” , his second solo album originally released by Discos Esplendor Geométrico (1987). It includes ten tracks composed between 1977 and 1985 and recorded at Laboratorio Phonos, Estudiomar and Laboratorio Alea using the Minimoog, Polymoog, EMS Synthi AKS synthesizers and the Yamaha CX5MII computer. The tracks were later mixed at the legendary Gabinete de Música Electroacústica de Cuenca.
 
The album was conceived as a sort of suite made up of mainly short music pieces from imaginary places. It begins with a hypnotic drone number, the longest track on the entire album, just over eight minutes of wonderful guitar arpeggios played by Jose Manuel Berenguer. As the album progresses, the dreamy atmospheres and surrounding environments point out the stops of the sound trip crafted by Polonio. Occasionally, the looped passages need no more than two minutes to draw an instant as hypnotic as attractive, and the sensations that the sounds generate wander between restlessness and pleasure. Irresistibly addictive.
 
“Syntax Error” is an astounding work that will give the listener a new perspective of the Spanish musical avant-garde in those years. On this record, Polonio delivers a coherent continuation of the ideas already sketched in his previous LP, both of them essential pieces of Spanish electronic music.
