Calmpositions Album Cover.jpg

Calmpositions is Yako 440's sophomore album, which accompanies

a book by the same title. Both the album and book are curated from

daily practices of making music loops and sketches in lined composition notebooks. Energetically calming, these works are a meditative pursuit rather than one that requires an audience. Thanks for taking the time to look and listen...

This video is a prayer for nonviolence and spiritual unification.

The beat is an unreleased live looping J Dilla cover. 1 Life, 1 Love.

Debut solo album Solo Fidelity was recorded, produced, and performed at the Home Creator Lab
