Orfeón Gagarin: Voces a 45

ORFEON GAGARIN is the Miguel A. Ruiz’s main project, a veteran electronic musician from Madrid (Spain).

Ruiz’s music has been the best-kept secret of Spanish underground electronics since the early eighties until now, although he´s not as well known internationally as other contemporary musicians (EsplendorGeométrico, Francisco López, or Diseño Corbusier, to name but a few).

In 1986 he released his first cassette on his own (now legendary) Toracic Tapes label. Since then he has remained active at the international network of independent electronic music and has collaborated with musicians from different countries such as Cisfinitum (Codachrom), Siegmar Fricke (Efficient Refineries) Dieter Mauson, Francisco López, Stefano Barban, etc.
He has composed many solo albums in all formats, especially on cassette, using several aliases: Funeral Souvenir, Exhaustor, Michel Des Airlines, Ventral Metaphor, apart from Orfeon Gagarin. His first vinyl LP was «Encuentros en la TerceraEdad» (1991) produced by the German electronics master AsmusTietchens on his label Hamburger Musikgesellschaft. In addition, he has published with other respected international labels like Discos Esplendor Geométrico, Old Europa Café, Aquarelist, Monochrome Vision, Menstrual Recordings, etc.

Fascinated by the sonic possibilities of analog and digital synthesizers and other studio techniques, Ruiz’s style is fantastic and surprising, with an imagination that can be considered as overwhelming. Science, technology, Soviet space race, Borges, surrealism, clinical pathologies, black humour or extra-planetary life…, whatever eccentricity has a place within the microcosm of this artist. He has a wide range of musical references: post-industrial music from the eighties recorded in home studios, German cosmic music from the seventies, pioneers of electro-acoustic music, Japanese techno pop, old and strange film soundtracks, retro-futurism, mutant pop, ambient, etc.
At present, Ruiz is experiencing one of the most active and best creative moments, performing more than ever and being discovered by a new generation of young Spanish electronic musicians who look for his works and admire him.
VOCES A 45 is his latest album, a vinyl LP format with 9 tracks recorded in 2018 at his own Toracic Studio. It´s the seventh work as Orfeon Gagarín. A limited edition of only 250 copies in white vinyl, co-produced by Geometrik & Munster records. There is a version that includes a CD-R with the album in digital format plus four exclusive extra tracks that are not in the vinyl!

Mi cuñao es catedrático, árbitro y experto en jihadismo
Desde que tiene Twitter y facebook sabe también de igualdad y feminismo

Mi cuñao se sabe todas las ciudades de Europa y a ver quién le replica
Chelsea, Everton, Schalke, Borussia, Galatasaray, Arsenal y Benfica

Mi cuñao igual sabe de toros que te explica la crisis del ladrillo
Da sentencias con autoridad mientras se zampa otro torreznillo

Cuñao, se te va de las manos
Cuñao, vas a acabar votando a Ciudadanos

Mi cuñao no habla, afirma con rotundidad dándote la chapa
La misma para opinar sobre países que no sabe situar en el mapa

Mi cuñao, y sólo él, sabe comprar el marisco barato
Nos da consejos de saber vivir con el palillo en la boca tol rato

Mi cuñado es Raulista, Mourinhista y además fue tuno
Y antes de Fernando Alonso ya le gustaba la Fórmula 1

Mi cuñao explica con claridad cómo el alcohol a él no le hace daño
Es un gran intelectual que lee la columna de Alfredo Relaño

Mi cuñao dice que le dejen: que en tres tardes arregla Cataluña.
Con un par de Seagrams- tónica es probable que lo haga sólo en una.

Mi cuñao es apolítico, dice que él quiere ser feliz
A veces dice que es de centro, pero es del centro de Valladolid
