Spotify algorithmic curated playlists.

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

I love algorithms, and algorithms love me?
Spotify (or, better said, its algorithms) are starting to take me serious (thanks to my fans really) and some days ago it created the “This Is Daniel Diaz” playlist, but more interesting is the new “Daniel Diaz Radio” where they put together a playlist with some of my tracks and other songs that the algorithm considers related to me. Some artists I know and cherish, some gems completely unknown (to me), I’m discovering great things there, so far amazing job.

Daniel Diaz Radio:

New collaboration based on J. L. Borges’ “The Library of Babel.”

Posted by admin under DedeLand Music News, music (No Respond)

I collaborated with how the night came from  Japan on this lovely project about Jorge Luis Borges’ story ‘The Library of Babel”. I performed my Indian Harmonium on track #6.

 


This E.P. explores the world of Borges’ incredible short story “The Library of Babel.” Based on the hexagonal structure of the library cells, each track emerges in some loose way out the number six, be it track length (6m66s), six instruments playing simultaneously, six note arpeggios, six note (diminished) scales, chords containing six notes, 6/8 rhythms, and so forth.

Some of the music finished up becoming darker than originally envisaged as the more disorienting aspects of Borges’ world took hold. There was, however, still opportunity to be playful in the midst of the library.

All tracks programmed by how the night came.

The themes for tracks 2 and 4 were originally composed on classical guitar by s h.

The Indian harmonium featured in the second half of track 6 was composed and played by Daniel Diaz.

This EP is a free download (name your price from 0$)
