Music and representation

  1. 1. Music and Representation
  2. 2. Representation deals with the way in which people and places are portrayed in the media. The music industry is all about: IMAGE and ASSOCIATION Magazine photo-shoots and interviews with artists are carefully managed to portray the artist in a way that would appeal to the readers.
  3. 3. The clothes the artists wear, their facial expression, the positioning of the lead singer centrally, the use of pull quotes, the body posture all contribute to the look, style and representation of the band or artist
  4. 4. This look or representation has to do with the artist’s image; the style or genre of their music, but also the readership of the magazine. Two different representations of Dizzee Rascal; can you suggest reasons for the differing representations?
  5. 5. Activity Production Task 21 Analyse the front cover of an existing magazine using technical language; make some comments on the representation of the artist on the front cover; suggest why this representation would appeal to the Magazine’s target audience
  6. 6. Activity Production Task 21 Analyse the front cover of an existing magazine using technical language; make some comments on the representation of the artist on the front cover; suggest why this representation would appeal to the Magazine’s target audience
