Neumatorax S.XX was recorded in September 1988 by
Migueal A.Ruiz and it was issued as a yellow cassette
on his own label Toracic Tapes.
The re-issue Neumotorax S.XX was
originally intended as a limited edition of 137
on yellow discs.
Due to a pressing plant mistake 90 of the 137 yellow
discs were destroyed and had to be re-printed.
When we asked the pressing plant to have the cds
re-printed they told us that they had run out of
It had taken already ages to get to the agreement
to have the discs re-done so instead of waiting
for them to receive new yellow cd-r we decided to
go ahead with the printing on a different color
When we received the red cd-r there were 10 more
copies of what we expected : 100 instead of 90.
That brings us to the new total of 147 copies.
The pressing is now divided this way:
47 on yellow Cd-r
100 on red Cd-r

"Austere cosmic electronics from Spain: Orfeon Gagarin
leads our minds in a rigorous journey through dynamic
an abstract mosaics. It's a syntho-aural odissey dense
of surrealistic pathos. A thicket of neurotic sounds
in gradual progression. Yes, "Neumotorax S.XX" represents
the ruinous tiredness of our slippery and rarefied times."

Orfeon Gagarin - Neumotorax S.XX
Recupero a sorpresa dall'archivio storico di Orfeon
Gagarin (al secolo Miguel A. Ruiz) voluta dai promoter
della Menstrual cha hanno riversato le tracce originali
in cassetta in questa nuova edizione a tiratura limitata
jevel-CD. Concrete Music ? Avantgarde ? Dodecafonia
? Cubismo elettroacustico ? Concatenazioni urticanti
di musica e rumore ? Tutte e nessuna di queste definizioni
si prestano rendere senso compiuto all'arte di Orfeon
Gagarin tanta e' la complessita' degli allestimenti
sonori pensati per "Neumotorax S.XX". Scosse neuronali,
questo si', flash sinaptici e drones eruttivi che scavalcano
le zone piu' buie e recondite della psiche, terapie
del dolore che si fanno catarsi laddove e' possibile,
misteri ed incognite di una dimensione che non e' solo
quella sonora ma metafisica e surreale.
