Looking For The Comfort Zone

Composed and performed by DD (Friday 30th October 2020) and Luis Rigou (circa 2015)

Released as a single, March 19th 2021

I made a parallel accompaniment for a discarded quena (south-american indian flute) performed years ago by my friend the great Luis Rigou.

Completely removed the old acoustic bacling tracks and made a “comfort” one (a tame groove of pizz strings samples and upright bass C minor pentatonic) and an uncomfortably one (C diminished performed on dystopian orchestral samples and a different flute performed on a different key)

Proto-chanson caverneuse et luisante, quasi-optimiste

A tribute to modern neoclassical piano players and their muffled sound and to French impressionist composers and their quirky little tweaks and turns on otherwise standard harmonies.”

Harmonically this is like Debussy Meet Folk. But the piano idea comes from Olafur Arnalds and Nils Frahn.

I played piano, upright bass, glockenspiel and some glass bowls and wine glasses… Composed and performed by Daniel Díaz in Paris, late May 2020.

Algorithmic Permutations in Black and White

Step 1: Define a scale of 8 notes (or sounds). Step 2: Create a melody with 4 notes from the scale resulting from Step 1. Step 3: Replace note 2 in the melodic sequence from Step 2 with an unused note (selected deterministically or randomly). Then do this for note 4, then for note 3, and then for note 1. Step 4: Reintroduce the first melody as counterpoint to the result of Step 3. This establishes a pair of notes at each point in time.

My scale is a 8 note diatonic that goes: C-D-E-F#-G#-A#-B-C 8va

My 4 note melody is C-E-C8-G#

3 different pianos (one muted and played with mallets) Orchestral samples and treatments.
