Amusia finds its roots in the pages of Oliver Sacks's Musicophilia, a book where the late neurologist descants several disorders and their connections to music. Asofy expands such concept exploring the implications on a social scale, questioning relationships and sensorial perceptions.
As a result, Amusia is a free broadening of the concept of amusicality in today's society, even touching the acceptation of lack of empathy. Lyrics are mostly borrowed from Joris-Karl Huysmans's À Rebours, as Tryfar says “Huysmans uses way more effective and peculiar words to express such feelings”.
