Target audience for different genres !

  1. 1. Target Audience
  2. 2. Heavy Metal fans have developed a subculture of their own and most of them completely follow the symbols , styles and dressing style of heavy metal bands. For example , long & vibrant hair .These subcultures are now commonly known as “ Headbangers” & “ Metal Heads “. Fans affirm their membership in the subculture or scene by attending metal concerts, buying albums, in some cases growing their hair, and most recently, by contributing to metal websites.
  3. 3. AUDIENCE It could be said that due to the emergence of an intense , exclusionary strong masculine subculture heavy metal has outlasted many other rock genres.Though the metal fans are mostly young , white , male and blue-collars , however this genre is gaining popularity in other regions as well. Identification with the subculture is strengthened not only by the shared experience of concert-going and shared elements of fashion, but also by contributing to metal magazines and, more recently, websites
  4. 4. LYRICS & TUNE For certain artists and bands, visual imagery plays a large role in heavy metal. In addition to its sound and lyrics, a heavy metal band's "image" is expressed in album sleeve art, logos, stage sets, clothing, and music videos. Death is a predominant theme in heavy metal, routinely featuring in the lyrics of bands as otherwise widely different as Slayer and W.A.S.P.The more extreme forms of death metal and grind core tend to have aggressive and gory lyrics. King Diamond, known for writing conceptual lyrics about horror stories Deriving from the genre's roots in blues music, sex is another important topic— a thread running from Led Zeppelin's suggestive lyrics to the more explicit references of glam and nu metal bands. Romantic tragedy is a standard theme of gothic and doom metal, as well as of nu metal, where teenage angst is another central topic. Heavy metal songs often feature outlandish, fantasy- inspired lyrics, lending them an escapist quality. Iron Maiden's songs, for instance, are frequently inspired by mythology, fiction, and poetry, as in "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", based on the SamuelTaylor Coleridge poem.The thematic content of heavy metal has long been a target of criticism
  5. 5. Punk subculture emerged, expressing youthful rebellion and characterized by distinctive styles of clothing and adornment and a variety of anti- authoritarian ideologies.
  6. 6. Punk Rock is quite famous in western countries as it’s nature is loud and rough and suits to the night life of western countries but it is getting popular on a very fast rate in other regions as well ; in developing countries such as India.Teenagers find this genre amazingly interesting because of it’s colourful nature !
  7. 7. Punk rock vocals sometimes sound nasal , and lyrics are often shouted instead of sung in a conventional sense, particularly in hardcore styles The vocal approach is characterized by a lack of variety; shifts in pitch, volume, or intonational style are relatively infrequent. This kind of music style attracts a large crowd of audience , especially those youngsters who are into Rock Music !
  8. 8. As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country ;nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks. So-called "pure pop" music, such as power pop, features all these elements, using electric guitars, drums and bass for instrumentation; in the case of such music, the main goal is usually that of being pleasurable to listen to, rather than having much artistic depth. Pop music is generally thought of as a genre which is commercially recorded and desires to have a mass audience appeal.
  9. 9. Pop genre has developed overtime and with the passage of time many other genres such as jazz , Latin , dance and etc have been influencing this genre.This is the most faourite genre of people and attracts audience from every age group. People who are into music are mostly fond of pop music , doesn’t matter if they are teenagers or belong to the group of middle age and older people group.
  10. 10. Although pop music is often seen as oriented towards the singles charts it is not the sum of all chart music, which has always contained songs from a variety of sources, including classical, jazz, rock, and novelty songs, while pop music as a genre is usually seen as existing and developing separately .Thus "pop music" may be used to describe a distinct genre, aimed at a youth market, often characterized as a softer alternative to rock .
  11. 11. Classical music is an art music.This genre is all about literature and poetry therefore it attracts senior citizens mostly.Youngsters are not that much into this genre of music because they find it quite boring and not so cool !
  12. 12. Folk ( traditional ) music appeals to senior people mostly and to those who are quite interested in their and different cultures. Folk music varies from place to place but some songs falling in this genre got popularity on international level. For example . India’s Rajasthani Folk music is quite popular in other countries as well , such as Pakistan.
  13. 13. However , this genre is mostly followed by Christians because music is an essential part of their prayers . Moreover , Christianity is the mostly followed religion in this world. Gospel concerts are a great attraction for Christian youth as well !
  14. 14. People who really love music and can’t live without it have many options in music. Music attracts people from every age group and people love following new trends and some like being stereotype but it could be said that music is an addiction !
