One of many collaborations between The Mars Volta guitarist, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, and Mexican singer, XimenaSariñana,
Ciencia de los Inutiles was released on February 2010 through the private record label of Rodriguez-Lopez.Rather than working
with members of The Mars Volta, Rodriguez-Lopez hired bassist Aaron Cruz Bravo to work with himand his girlfriend on this new
project. Ciencia de los Inutiles features an interesting transition in sound, incorporating amusical style that has never really
been explored by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez. The album has a very gentle folk sound that iscomprised of mostly acoustic
instruments, with very little electronic components.
