what's music authenticity?


The easiest way to explain it is music that is "real" or "genuine". Think Britney Spears vs. Jimi Hendrix. It's somewhat explained in the first question of the survey.

I got bored after trying to figure out what the first question meant.

I think music authenticity is dumb/fake so I couldn't answer half the questions...
Quote by alkalineweeman
If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

Thanks for the replies thus far guys. I know some of the wording is bloated and academic, but it's basic stuff when you get past the language.

I'm with this guy. So on the questions that asked which were the most authentic, I just picked the ones I liked the most. Except the rap ones, I just guessed cause I really have no clue.

i took it, interesting survey I thought it was pretty good except the part about the genres, IMO genre has nothing to do with authenticity (which is what I put in the "Other" box)
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!

You really need to work on phrasing your thoughts better.

I believe by authenticity, you mean music that is made with dedication and passion. I can't think of any examples of when music isn't made with dedication and passion when it's intended for a mass audience.

This survey is poorly conceived and I didn't bother finishing it.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Indeed. This survey closely follows the sociological definition of musical authenticity, which at its core is very vague. Authenticity is highly subjective, therefore no solid definition was provided. The purpose of this survey was to observe trends and assumptions with regard to musical authenticity, nothing more. Thanks for bashing it though, very intellectual of you.

It's for a final paper in a Sociology of Popular Music course. Once again, I'm going to look at the trends presented and make overall implications on the subject.

Don't lump Mos Def in there with those two jokers. Go look at some of Mos Def's lyrics. Upon closer inspection you will see that his music is authentic.

That would only be true if you were a musical elitist beforehand. If you enjoy the occasional pop song every once and a while then I wouldn't call you an elitist.

Musical Authenticity? I don't think such a thing exists. There is good and bad music, but all of it is real and it doesn't matter where it comes from to me.
#28
I don't think you can judge authenticity when music is genres like that...
isn't that whole point of a genres to catagorize certain types of music?
i put other and indie
