Sounds. Only sounds inhabit space.

Sometimes they meet each other, sometimes they are travelling alone through this space,

Slowly depicting the geography of the instrument producing them.

Since he started playing the double bass, Sebastien Beliah has always tried to invent his own music with his instrument. That’s why, besides his work in different jazz or improvised music ensembles, he always kept a place, alone with his instrument, where he can develop his personal ideas.

From there was born Nocturnes. Pieces with simple appearance and refined profils, in order to invite the listener to hear the infinite nook of the sound of the double bass.

Nocturnes is sold in a deluxe packaging made of refine paper and two inked-printed labels. The whole work has been handmade by Alicja Magiera and Robert Sawa in the printing factory Dom Słów in Lublin (Poland).
