Daisuke Miyatani lives on the Awaji Island in Japan and usually works in a bookshop. Maybe that is where he finds the rest and silence to create his fragile compositions. Or it is his Japanese cultural background that leads to the calm, haiku-like miniatures. Daisuke establishes a reduced and minimal approach mostly based on guitars, accompanied by xylophones and other instruments. The album is a fruitful interplay between constant atmospheres and point-like acoustic notes. Most of the songs include field recordings which are rather subtle, underlying. All the electronic elements still have an analog character, fitting with the dominating acoustic instruments. 'Diario' establishes a warm and calm atmosphere and yet avoiding to be a trivial album. The CD comes in a matt Digipack with detailed collage-artwork.
