This book brings together open and frank conversations around art and music from the first five years of the ongoing radio show, Rough Version, on cult online station NTS Radio.
Conceived and presented by writer and curator Francesca Gavin, the monthly show has captured the musical outputs and aural inspirations of some of the biggest and most interesting emerging names in contemporary art. Here music opens the door to each international artist’s practice, providing insight into who they are, what motivates them and what they love to listen to.
