Jam Self

is Rodrigo José Guimarães Ferreira

Born in São Luís, a small Brazilian island where culture overflows, he had vast terrain to explore and lay the groundwork for his inspiration.

Self-taught, he always played with other bands, but he never had a group to play his songs exclusively. However, learning to play a few instruments gave him a chance to showcase his restrained artistry.

The expansive character of his work travels into unpredictable rhythms and melodies, allowing it to be free from stylistic classifications because each composition is a different path to follow.

Recorded 20 years ago, in total improvisation; with cassette tapes, double tape-deck (with karaoke function) and a common microphone, which served as a guide and metronome was the basis of the guitar.

With the theme recorded on an A-Tape, was just put it to listen while playing the bass; recording the two instruments mixed on a B-Tape. On a C-Tape is recorded what you hear from B-Tape while playing a guitar solo, for example. Then the drums and so on. No time for corrections.

This crude method of recording produces what would be heard in a jam session played live and this is what inspired the creation of the alias Jam Self.
