My Choice Of Genre
I have chosen to do a song that fits into the
genre of ‘metalcore’. This is solely because it is
the genre which I most prefer, as the majority of
my favourite bands/artists fall under this genre.
As follows is a mind map I produced showing
certain sub-genres of types of music, i.e. Metal,
What is Genre?
Genre is important in the music industry as
everyone has varied tastes in music. In my Media
Studies project, I will need to pick a song belonging
to a particular genre of music and then produce the
video according to that genre's conventions and
target audience. A musical genre is a category
that identifies a piece of music whether it’s a song
or just an instrumental piece as belonging to a set
of ideas etc. Examples include "rock", “metal", etc.
Each have their own trends which evolve over time.
