“The main melody on “self assessment.” is extracted from a solo I played in a live session. Cutting and manipulating a solo which was spontaneous and in most cases would have lived solely in that live session felt like I was going through my performance with a fine-tooth comb. It felt like a self assessment. It has ended up being one of my favourite tracks, simply because the foundation of the track is improvised, and so it feels more genuine to me. I feel like I can hear how I felt when I first played it.”jüle.
