Jeff Sampson and Kecap Tuyul: Nocturnes

Nocturnes – music of the night, be it the chronological time between sundown and dawn or the psychological machinations of a working mind. The night music on this album was realized through the long distance work of Kecap Tuyul (France) and Jeff Sampson (USA). Despite being the products of different cultures, the two artists have an affinity for sound and emotion. There’s a cohesion in these pieces that speaks of two minds acting as one.

Jeff Sampson: Energy of the Universe

You’ve worked hard. The project is done. The meetings are over. The endurance “race” is complete.

You’re finally able to take time for yourself.

You fall into your comfy chair.

You unroll that yoga mat, eager to get the tension out of your muscles.

You crawl into bed, hoping you can fall asleep quickly enough to avoid reliving the day you’ve had.

And you’d like some support, with soothing the memory beast, with calming the inner turmoil, with helping the adrenaline seep back to wait for a time it’s really needed.

Go ahead. Push play.

“Smile, breathe, and go slowly.” – Thich Nhat Hanh
