Music Vs Crime
The workshop aims to explore the relationship between music, young people, criminal activity, and violence.
Dubbed as 'violent' and 'dangerous', the sound of the younger generation is often blamed for the recent rise in violent crime. Many blame the culture of hatred around the music young people listen to, which glorifies violence and loathing of authority (especially the police but including parents), exalts trashy materialism and raves about drugs.
The workshop identifies related behaviours and trends used in the majority of contemporary music, providing participants with a well-defined understanding of the perceptions that surround modern-day artists when creating music pieces for the public.
