Miguel A. Ruiz is a veteran experimental/electronic musician from Madrid, Spain that has worked under numerous monikers since early eighties as Técnica Material, Orfeón Gargarín, Codachrom, Dekatron II, Michel Des Airlines, Funeral Souvenir, some are still active today.

Entering the world of Ruiz is a wonder to the mind and ears, each project yields authentic masterpieces of experimental electronic music. Climatery was originally recorded in the summer of 1986 and was published by the Madrid label Proceso Uvegraf and later again by Esplendor´s Geométrico label (EGK 017).

Its Ethnic Industrial sound of mantric loops and futuristic soundtracks draw similarities to Muslimgauze, O Yuki Conjugate, Cabaret Voltaire, and the avantgarde world rhythms of Jon Hassell. 

"Six long environmental themes with ethnic and exotic touches, within a repetitive minimalism and layers of Korg Polysix synthesizer, combined with loops created with a sampler. Sequenced tribal rhythms, leathery and dragging, remind us of the origins of Techno and Industrial music. To the mix we only need to add the connective tissue of experimentation and the avant-garde, which make each theme acquire its own distinctive body" - La muerta tenía un blog

Climatery is undoubtedly one of the most inspired works recorded by Miguel A. Ruiz during the first years of his long career and under his given name, as he also published as Orfeón Gagarin, Ventral Metaphor, Funeral Souvenir,etc. It was originally released on cassette on the Proceso Uvegraf label in 1986, and a year later it was reissued by EGK, the Esplendor Geométrico label, in the same format. Climatery shows a facet of Ruiz away from Industrial music and rough experimentation, closer to the electronics usually labeled as "ambient", creating suggestive atmospheres where it incorporates sonorities of ethnic and tribal music to the sounds of synthesizer (Korg Polysix especially). A sound trip through exotic landscapes, based on various repetitive rhythmic structures and loops.
Miguel A. Ruiz is a pioneer of underground Hispanic electronics and one of its survivors. He is currently very active, even keeping his old label Toracic Tapes, which was a benchmark from Batán (Madrid) within the international network of electronic music cassette stamps, usually based on the exchange, and which reached its maximum splendor during the eighties.” - Andrés Noarbe Rotor Discos
