Music and the rest ... Stay! (and becomes signed)

Music and the rest disappears!

... or also not? And above all, what remains?

Carə readerə and listenə, It is true. We have come for sound days and maybe we also have enough but let's take a moment to analyze and understand why music has such a great, immense communicative, linguistic, educational and popular value and what we really want to treat now.

You know, the music is immediate, it comes right to allə. But how?

Short cognitivist explanation: music is language and therefore a form of communication thanks to which human beings come into contact with each other.

Language, through communication, therefore becomes a relationship, participation, exchange. Furthermore, it makes thought communicable.

Therefore, linguistic communication performs social, relational, referential functions. Lots of stuff!

So what happens when we listen to a song whose text particularly involves us? That those words take on meaning and become for us ways of living and perceiving the world.

According to the theoretical model of referentialism, things go more or less like this:

° I live an experience

° I translate it into thought

° which in turn is associated with words, symbols, sounds

° of which I later use to build statements by the way of experiences similar to mine

Since you stillə We live similar experiences, the words we hear inevitably activate our thoughts. In this way, language allows people to communicate. And so the music works!

Further expanding: what does women's music tell us? What images and meanings offer us?

Often, narratives imbued with polarizing visions, the evident masked sexism between sentimentalism and inappropriate irony, stereotypes and poetic legitimacy of gender violence all normalized and catchy.

And unfortunately, the music thus made retains a crucial role in supporting and legitimizing gender -based violence.

It is important to ask us what all this produces in us (and what has already produced, intergenerationally) at the level of growth and moral, personal, relational, cultural awareness.

The production of meaning is one of the functions of culture.

And therefore we want awareness and collective responsibility!

We want to create shared meanings and languages, a music that remains and genres learning, sensitivity, culture.
