The attraction "roller coasters", known as "American mountains" or "Russian Mountains", is called" in the world. This is an allegory of show business:, from extreme to extreme, up and down, so that it turns inside out. World-class instrumentalists don't have "Hollywood clips" that are expensive and meaningless. A simple 'shot on iPhone' video is enough for them, but one that will take your breath away. Because virtuoso music is the top, and pop and hype are the bottom. Two extremes, top and bottom, as in the "roller coaster".

“When one listens to the powerful guitar playing of Roman Miroschnichenko, it is easy to be reminded of Al DiMeola and John McLaughlin during his Mahavishnu days, but it soon becomes apparent that Miroschnichenko has his own sound within fusion, setting the standard for XXI century fusion guitar.” - Scott Yanow noted.
