‘I’m a strong believer that dissection and analysis of music or art does not - contrary to popular belief - diminish it or reduce its magic. As Beethoven said, "Don't only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets; art deserves that”. I hope readers of this piece of explanatory literature will find it exciting and interesting.’
You can read further into depth about the book with a exclusive interview between Rou and Rocksound, who are also running a competition to win a signed copy and t-shirt. You can check that out here.
