Together, We Carry ON... MUSIC
As people listen to it, they can be affected. They respond.” – Ray Charles
Music is an integral part of our lives.
POP MUSIC and SONGS from each era represent and reflect the CULTURE, the CONTEXT and SOCIAL ASPECTS of the era. What impact does pop music have on different periods since the 60s? How does each era affect the songwriters, and how do the songs written subsequently exert its influence on the era?
In this series, we will look at HOW POP MUSIC EVOLVES over the years and highlight some of the key pop music phenomenon. Each session will be devoted to a decade starting from the 60s to 2010s. We will EXPLORE how different eras consume music differently (from AM radio to Streaming music platforms), the IMPACTS of various media and formats (from vinyl to MP3), and how technology EXPAND the reach of pop music to all parts of the world. Participants are encouraged to explore the impact of pop music to their own lives and their responses to it.
