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. For more information, please visit:
