Juan Manuel Cidrón, from Almeria (Andalusia), is a prominent Spanish synth-player who began playing in 1985. A veteran of analog electronic sounds, his early influences were the Berlin School of the '70s (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, etc.) and American minimal music. Cidrón has released nine albums on his own label (Extraradio) with a very limited distribution. As a child, Cidrón fell in love with a radio that had flashing lights, as well as with the music that was broadcast through it. With the little money he had in his youth, he would spend it all on records and analog machines. His music is a celebration of life -- the immensity of his electronic keyboards offers listeners the immensity of the desert, snow, wind... records like Tau or Sonido Para Acciones belong to the imaginarium of Spanish electronic music and also to the imaginarium of lovers of sonic poetry and soaring music. This vinyl edition is special -- it is a return to analog, to which Cidrón is devout, and to which he will continue to be loyal. In this way, it is a classic, as is his continuous pledge to the quality that is the resounding conjunction between natural and artificial pulsation. The result is uniquely his: a material body that approaches the dream-world. Limited edition of 500 copies with printed inner sleeve.
