Coming out
Posted on May 20 2013

No matter where I go in the world, many questions are put to me during my master classes and after concerts. Often incisive, these questions probe my vision of composition, my approach to sound, my ideas concerning technique, and indeed the very future of the guitar. However, there is one question that I swear is asked of me more often than all others put together - a genuine FAQ - and this is it: How do you pronounce your name? 

Existential, n’est-ce pas? Nevertheless, after a prolonged and cruel silence, I am resolved at last to Come Out. How do you pronounce my name? Here we go: 

With Roland, my first name, one does NOT pronounce the final "d" (i.e. ROW-LAHN). Conversely, the final "s" in Dyens IS pronounced (i.e. DEE-AHNZ). No need to feel complicated or embarrassed just because Paris, for instance, is pronounced PA-REE. Oui, French is a marvellous and romantic language, but logical? Not so much.

So... too difficult? too much to contemplate? I think not. Click here and repeat after me. A little practice is required. C'est tout. 

Whew. It's important that things be clear between us, don’t you think?


Warmly to all (my non-francophone friends in particular),

Rolan(d) DyenS
