Renowned pianist and composer Javier Rodriguez, in collaboration with Stewart Gilchrist, the East London School of Yoga, and Charlotte Hastings of Sounds Alchemical, unveiled his brilliant album "Morpheus."
This groundbreaking project, released on June 5th, 2023, offers an immersive musical journey that, by exploring innovative ways for storytelling, sound, and consciousness to intertwine, focuses on addressing insomnia and promoting deep relaxation.
Insomnia is one of the most prevalent health issues of our era. “Morpheus” seeks to harness the power of music as a therapeutic tool for combating insomnia and facilitating restorative sleep while captivating the listeners with beautiful arrangements and brilliant songwriting. The nine tracks of the album incorporate an array of sonic techniques meticulously crafted to induce relaxation and a sense of tranquility among the listeners.

As the listeners immerse themselves in the sounds of “Morpheus,” subtle shifts in heart and brain wave states occur, facilitating relaxation and paving the way for restful sleep. Javier Rodriguez’s “Morpheus” is proof of the transformative power of music, and offers a respite from the stresses of modern life and guides listeners toward a state of deep rest and rejuvenation.
