Detailed information:

Recordings of the eruption of the Tajogaite volcano on the island of La Palma, made by Fabián Yanes, are the sound base used by Suso Saiz to create MADAY. This creative process was presented to the public in the Espacio La Granja in Santa Cruz de Tenerife for several days in March 2022.

“Before we could begin, physical contact with the volcano was necessary, and on March 18 (2022), we set foot on the island of La Palma. The devastating presence of an immense force engulfed me as I stepped onto a frozen river of lava, still warm and smoldering despite the eruption having ended months earlier. The profound beauty of the disaster of life buried under tons of ashes will always remain with me. On March 21,2022, the sessions began, and everything reverberated with the sounds of the Tajogaite volcano, filling every cornero of the theater-space La Granja in Santa Cruz de Tenerife. The venue was generously provided by the Government of the Canary Islands, who, along with the Fundación Autor (SGAE), were the sponsors for the event.

From the beginning, with the constant presence of the volcano´s sounds, I embarked on a search for timbre outside of conventional instruments, somethig I have pursued throughout my career. In Maday, this became a fundamental element, for which I had a multitude of instruments and sound objects designed and built by Javi Botanz. The experience concluded as an exciting and unforgettable week. However, the journey of Maday was not yet complete.

For almost a year, I continued to reflect on the volcano and the creation. I revisited all the recordings from the sessions of La Granja and used the concert recording from Friday, March 25, 2022, as a starting point. I reprocessed, edited, and remixed Maday, without adding a single sound. The piece was finally finished.

The result is the version included in this limited edition of 150 copies, accompanied by the incredible images created by Pedro Díaz Saiz. Using ashes from the volcano itself. At no point do my work of Pedro´s images have any representational intent. Tajogaite has inspired us, moved us, and provided its Sonic material as ashes. However, neither my work nor Pedro´s images represent the volcano. They are an offering of our love and respect for nature, and our commitment to Earth and its conservation” (SUSO SAIZ, Spring 2023)

Maday LP is an art edition of only 150 copies, hand signed and numbered by Suso Saiz himself. In addition to the vinyl, the thick cardboard folder includes a 20-page booklet of 30 x 30 cm, on special paper, with images by Pedro Díaz Saíz and texts by Suso explaining the work. MADAY is a deep love for nature and its sometimes violent creativity.

This LP will not have a normal distribution and will only be on sale in a few selected shops like Rotor Discos.
