This book published in 2003, is a collection of 60 pages with drawings of musicians and experiences related to musical activities. "Musica para ver" will be a treasure for any fan of the music. As Bernardo Rodriguez states in his introduction to the original edition: "What I have tried to do is present a book [that] with original drawings using paper, ink, with brush and pen without any other technical resource. The idea was not to create visual distraction just quick reading and expressionist exposure. The music is totally presented as such."

Indeed, he more than succeeds in presenting his appreciation for music, creating 60 illustrated pages with art and music that embrace not only local rock musicians Luis Alberto Spinetta and Charly Garcia but also Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Robert Smith (The Cure) and Louis Armstrong.
Other illustrations include Rubber Soul and the Yes Album covers.
This book is about drawings showing musical expression, gestures and experiences. Bernardo is an extraordinary artist. His beautifully crafted images of tango dancers and musicians capture the feeling and passion of the artists on stage. 
His works have been exhibited in museums and galleries around the world.
