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.

”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
