Introducing Diary: unleashing unfinished melodies and memories

Dedicated to the art of preserving unfinished and unreleased works from the studio, Diary embarks on a sonic journey where fragments of memories come alive, the machines breathe, dream, love, and drag listeners along the captivating path of artistic creation.

Unleashing the unfinished: a gateway to the creative process
Diary is more than just a sub label; it is a project that peels back the layers of the creative process, offering a unique perspective into the minds of musicians and their artistic endeavors. This subdivision aims to celebrate the raw beauty of unfinished works, showcasing the moments where inspiration strikes, melodies are born, and emotions run wild.

Breathing life into unreleased creations
In the world of Diary, forgotten melodies find their voice, and dormant compositions see the light of day. This remarkable endeavor cherishes the magic that happens in the studio, where musicians embark on a journey of musical exploration and experimentation. From the earliest recordings to the latest studio sessions, every fragment is woven together into a rich tapestry of musical ingenuity.

Embracing memories and emotions
Diary delves into the very essence of human expression, capturing emotions that often lay hidden within unfinished works. Listeners will find themselves transported through a sonic landscape that resonates with the universal human experience - memories of love, joy, heartache, and everything in between. These unreleased gems embody the authenticity and vulnerability of artistic expression in its purest form.

Release #4 by bahia mansa.

Bahía Mansa is a solo music project that creates hazy evocative electronic soundscapes. Through the use of soft, expansive drones and haunting pads, Bahía Mansa creates atmospheres that intermingle dreams and reality, and invite listeners to inhabit an intimate sky.

Born in the 1980s, Chilean musician made the decision to pursue a solo career in 2020. He cited his trips to the sea, his affinity for analog photography, and his concern for environmental issues as sources of inspiration. Since then, he has released several records in different formats that evoke a sense of warm nostalgia while simultaneously raising awareness about ecological matters. These works have been produced in collaboration with various esteemed labels, including Fallow Recordings, Colony Collapse, Golden Ratio Frequencies, Florina Cassettes, and Histamine Tapes, among others.
