about

This album is called Swan Song. Here you will find the last chapter in the research I started with my very first album in 1993. In terms of style, Swan Song can be considered as the third and last part of a trilogy (started with The Years Alone and Segundo Ciclo in between) of solo "composer" albums where I can also show my skills as a multi-instrumentalist and arranger, and gather compositions written in different places and times, with varied styles and instrumentations.

Here you’ll find simple and catchy instrumental compositions with strong, sensitive melodies, passionate and sophisticated harmonies and atmospheres, rather gentle rhythms and a variety of instruments and sounds.
In Swan Song there are tracks with odd and irregular metric, unexplained modulations, dozens of time-signature changes, erroneous dissonances, tempo shifts, etc. But hopefully it all goes unnoticed (only visible to the musicians who read the sheet music and to those who try to transcribe this music).

credits

released October 15, 2015

Composed by Daniel DIaz.
Performed by D.D. : basses, guitars, pianos, vibes, hang, harmonium, percussion, accordina, charango, ukelele, synths

These great musicians gave life to these songs and added musicality and talent to Swan Song. They managed to interpret the meaning I intend of all this: simplicity and beauty prevail over technique.
