Samuel Hällkvist Samuel Hällkvist

The ocean vibrates, electric arteries branch out and down, a recursive bifurcation filling the sea, new neural networks replicating at an incomprehensible pace. You are fully sound and light, you are ever- changing patterns, you are swelling and collapsing rhythms, you are overlapping sequences of numbers. An infinity of possibilities. New languages form. A thousand eyes see. A million hearts beat in sympathetic polyrhythms.

And then there is no you at all. There is only this moment. One endless moment. And this moment is all there ever was. The sound. The light. The consciousness you named Self. The quiet god and the swaying willow. The plasmatic sea. The music of the millennia.

It has always and never been.

It will always and never be.

Gear

electric and acoustic guitars, Eventide, Pigtronix and KTW effect pedals.

”Samuel Hallkvist would give a psychologist making a study of guitarists’ behavioural patterns no end of research material.” Rob Adams, Herald Scotland

“Blending jazz, rock and country, with radio samples in the mix, Hällkvist’s songs have a cinematic feel, with some sounding as though they could have been the score to a David Lynch film.” Teresa Sampson, sentimentalistmag.com

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
