It doesn't say.

We don’t mourn artists because we knew them. We mourn them because they helped us know ourselves.

From Publishers Weekly, 2 March 2020 (Vol. 267 No. 09):

.

This Is What It Sounds Like: A Legendary Record Producer-Turned-Brain Scientist Explores Why We Fall in Love with Music

.
by Susan Rogers and Ogi Ogas

.
U.S. publisher: Norton, fall 2022

.
Rogers, a brain scientist and producer for Prince and others, teams up with Ogas, a computational neuroscientist, to go beyond the familiar concepts of scales, key signatures, and chord progressions to explore a set of overlooked and underappreciated aspects of music.

.

Publisher's website: https://wwnorton.com/

From https://www.bardonchinese...522920.pdf :

.

A legendary record producer for Prince, among others, and brain scientist will write the first trade book about listening to music that goes beyond the familiar concepts of scales, key signatures, and chord progressions to explore a set of overlooked and underappreciated (yet easily grasped) aspects of music that can help readers get more out of their relationship with music. In this book, Susan Rogers argues that even if you don’t know an A sharp from a B flat, you can still be an indispensable part of music as long as you go about listening in the right way. . . for you.
