Introspection is the examination of one's conscious thoughts & feelings. Introspection provides a privileged access to our own mental states, not mediated by other sources of knowledge, so that individual
experience of the mind is unique. Introspection can determine any number
of mental states: sensory, bodily, cognitive, emotional and
so forth. "Introspeccion" is also the name of the new album of Downbeat, the project from Argentina that mutates, changes with time, transforms itself with life, without limits and without borders. Get ready for some heavy experimental sounds!
