Transcript of Copy of Jeff Buckley 'Grace' - Cams Hill School

1991 Nevermind Nirvana 1990's Rock and Pop Other music on the scene Music in Wider Context Context The Musical Terminology Jeff Buckley Grace The Music Video Structure For people who listened to guitar based music, Nirvana was a major player. One of Nirvana's most famous albums... Nevermind is the second album, by the American band, released September 24th 1991. It is a punk/grunge album, full of distorted guitars and hard-hitting songs. It changed rock music in America quickly. Nevermind was to be the first of many of this type of band. Very influential in the 1990's! Groups that also had a major impact Soundgarden Pearl Jam These bands from the north west of the U.S came with their own 'brand' of wall-of-sound music with powerful guitars. Fresh wave of new music Popular bands That were going out the door U2 Metallica R.E.M Pink Floyd Hip Hop to Rap Hip Hop was changing from the cleaner music of M.C Hammer to the more 'gangsta' rap of Snoop Doggie Dogg. It became harder and more political! Many albums were censored or had stickers with warnings or explicit content. In the U.K at the time, dance music dominated the charts, along with American Grunge. Manufactured pop music written specifically for short-term success singers, (by the 'pop music production line' songwriters) was out near the top of the charts. Changes 1994+ By 1994, the world was ready for another change. In the U.S it came in the form of pop-punk band Greenday. It was an uncompromising energy reminiscent of punk music, but made user friendly. In the U.K , Britpop was the revival,
with bands such as Oasis, Pulp, Blur and Suede at the centre. Other important bands included Rage against the Machine, Radiohead and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The Artist and the Industry What we hear is mainly determined by what artists and their producers think we want to hear. This comes from the time of Mozart and Handel, composers needed patrons to commission what they would like to hear. Record companies employ people so that they can find new talent and play 'what people want'. The artist needs to be of a certain genre, so people know what they are getting (e.g. Jazz, Pop, Funk, Blues). This means that they can market properly, by selling it to the right audience. Marketing has had a significant impact on the way music is written, recorded (as well as packaged and distributed) and even listened to. Nowadays, downloadable music has made all genres much easier to get to. You can listen to your iPod or download it from Facebook. In the 1990's, it was important to get your song played on MTV to create public interest, then to up sales of CD's. Record companies would ensure that albums contained songs that could be released as singles (each single would also have a video).
