Recording synthesisers inside the Great Pyramid in Egypt, composing a theme during a psychotropic trip in the desert of Joshua Tree, creating a track in Tokyo with a virtual singer, playing drums inside the volcanic caves of Lanzarote island or collaborating with a Maasai tribe on a jam techno session…
There are few artists who truly commit to their craft in the same way as Henry Saiz. His new album and film project is an ambitious adventure of epic proportions: creating and recording 10 tracks in 10 iconic destinations, in response to unique surroundings and indigenous cultures.
“The concept of this album is to materialise the essence of each place into a song. I’ve always been fascinated by how our environment can influence creative choice, I aim to explore how an artist can use everything around them as an inspiration to convert this energy into music.” – Henry Saiz
The Spanish DJ, producer and live artist started his fruitful career around 10 years ago, and has since released on some of the music scene’s most prestigious labels including Last Night On Earth, Suara and Bedrock, and played solo and with his band in some of the top clubs and festivals around the world. Saiz’s success lies in the passion he has for exploring beyond the usual approach to electronic music, combining pop elements such as vocals with acoustic instruments.
This, his third album will drop in 2017 on his own imprint Natura Sonaris, along with the accompanying film, which will be a combination of both documentary and fiction and a visual journey that will help listeners delve deeper into the meaning of the album.
To realise this exciting musical adventure and the logistics of transporting his team and equipment to some remote places, Henry invites his fans and anyone passionate about music to join the project through Kickstarter, offering rewards including the chance to have him DJ at their private party.
