Product Notes

Blind Divine Painter/Graphic Artist/Composer/Sound Designer Daniel Martin Diaz and his muse, Vocalist/Writer/Designer Paula Catherine Valencia, are Tucson, Arizona's Blind Divine. ------------------------------------------ The music of Blind Divine is best described as "art music." These prolific and experienced artists have embraced a creative style that is as unconventional as it is carefully crafted, allowing subtle nuances to collide with deliberate profoundness. Their "musical paintings" may be a thirty second interlude designed to lure the listener into an otherworldly dreamscape, where floating rhythms, ethereal vocals, haunting piano, or effected guitars become a palette of many hues, a sonic texture that conjures a visual aesthetic. While others embrace a mix of moody beats and emotional vocals, where the "art music" becomes the theme of an enigmatic dream that is as strange as it is inescapably familiar in a delicate and abstract world, imbuing an ultra awareness of emotion, love, hate, fear, pain, life, death, elation, or faith, and inviting the imagination to ruminate. "It's about the process of discovering the beauty in the layers of sound," explains Paula. "When I write lyrics and melodies to Daniel's pieces I'm careful to record every note I sing. I capture how the song makes me feel at that moment. There is an unveiling that takes place, it's truly magical." For Daniel, "trying the create a visual picture, a mood, a moment in time without thinking about it too much is a challenge. I like to keep the instrumentation classic and organic. I play everything live and avoid sequencing." The first album, the 2005 release, 'Devouring The Beautiful,' was a definitive moment and a liberating experience, one that has brought forth a transfiguration of spontaneity and creation. After spending the majority of the summer in the studio, Blind Divine has two new CD releases, 'Desire to Destroy,' mastered by the first Grammy Award winning mastering engineer, Gavin Lurssen, and 'Music for Unmade Movies Vol. 1.' ------------------------------------------ The music of Blind Divine has been licensed by the following clients: MTV, VH1, A&E, Discovery Channel, History Channel, Biography Channel, Disney Channel, Sony Pictures, CMTV, Soap Network, Weather Channel, Travel Channel, Style Network, Comedy Central, Noggin, Logo, E!, WETV, Animal Planet, National Geographic, The Learning Channel, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Bravo, Spike TV, Discovery Health Channel, Big Fish Entertainment, Venture Three, DRATFCB, Net Pickle, Inc., YES Network, and Lakeshore Records. Feature Films: Taking Lives (DVD) Angelina Jolie, Ethan Hawke, Kiefer Sutherland, Gena Rowlands. ------------------------------------------ Paula and Daniel have become producers of more than just music, they have become a production team, which have collaborated on the design and installation of the new Historic Hotel Congress "Procenium" stage, the album cover and entire CD artwork for "Payable On Death" by Atlantic Records band P.O.D., which sold over 500,000 copies, and the book design and layout for Daniel's art books, "Triginta Uno Dies, Thirty-One Drawings In Thirty-One Days" and "Mysterium Fidei," published by La Luz de Jesus Press and Last Gasp.
