"...the imagination is unleashed by constraints. You break out of the box by stepping into shackles."
― Jonah Lehrer, Imagine: How Creativity Works
In July 2014 Roller made it to the EBU European Jazz Competition finals in Rotterdam. One week before the competition James (sax) broke a bone in his right hand which left us unable to play our regular set. Instead of forfeiting the competition we decided to throw ourselves into 4 days of writing/rehearsing in which we came up with half an hour of new material which James could perform with one hand. The resulting music still prominently features the saxophone but with a greater emphasis on electronics, looping and ambient effects. Hope you enjoy this slightly broken Roller set!
