What type of music do
you listen too?
• This is the first question I have asked my
audience. I wanted to know what type of
music my audience like. Looking at this
there is a lot of different genres, but a
few people have said "punk and rock"
this helps me as my music artist does
this type of music genre, which means
that these people would be interested in
• Indie music is also seen as alternative
which means that they might also like my
What makes you listen to
that genre of music?
• For this question I had gotten mixed results. One person said the
"lyrics and the beat", the lyrics could be because they can relate
to some of the lyrics. The beat could be drums, guitar or other
instruments that creates that beat. One person has said it "helps
with their mental health" and this is important as I want to talk
about this in my documentary and a lot of young people would be
able to relate to this comment. Another person has said the
vocals, and this could be from a mix of different artists. One
person said "best music" which means that they listen to that type
of music because they enjoy it. Someone said "depends on their
mood" which means when they are in a good mood it would mean
that they would listen to music that would make them feel good.
When they are sad, they would listen to music with deep lyrics or
with a sadder tune or voice.
What music genre of music
do you dislike?
• One person said mumble rap. This is helpful as my music artist
does not rap which means that this person would like different
music genres and could be pop punk.
• One person have said country music, and this
is understandable as my age group wouldn't listen to that type
• Two people have said MC which can be hip hop in the modern
age. This means they could like other type of music such as
rock, indie, pop, pop punk and other music.
What are your faviourite
• This question was essential for me to ask as it gives me
information about what artists and bands people listen too. I
have gotten a lot of different artists and bands that do different
genres and overall different to each other. I have also gotten
artists that started music ages ago and people in my
generation and age bracket might not know much about unless
they were grew up with that type of music, or they might have
heard of them.
• This tells me that they are more aware of music from ages ago
rather than music that has been around for the past 5 years
and now. This means that my audience could be aware of the
punk genre as well as the genres they listen too. This does not
necessary mean that they don't know any artists or bands that
have been formed in recent years.
• I have also noticed that there is a lot of artists and bands that
more than one person have said. This could mean that artist
are band is commonly known with people in this age bracket,
and the genre of that music as well.
What are your opinions on
• I have gotten different types of answers which helps me as it gives
me a wider understanding of what their opinions are. Two people
have said that "they can help the audience connect with the artist
more". I totally agree as it means that we see the artist in a
different perspective and outside of the music world. This is what I
want to show through my documentary.
• Two people have said that they haven't see one before which
could mean the artists, they listen too hasn’t made a documentary.
Another reason could be they only want to listen to the music, and
they might not want to get to know the artist more.
• One person have said that they "quiet like them" which means that
they could have watched some based off the artists and bands
they listen too.
Would you ever watch a
• These answers tells me that my audience would only watch a
music documentary if it is about someone they listen too or who
they know, and this is from the majority of people's answers. 33%
of people have said they wouldn't watch a music documentary, and
this could be because they just want to listen to the music and not
know the artist more. Another reason could be because there is not
a music documentary that would interest them. For the people who
have said "yes" this could mean that they also only watch them if it
is on someone they listen too, or they could listen to them because
they like to find out information about the artists and bands overall.
How this research has
helped me understand my
• This information has helped me
understand what genre, bands and
artists my audience listens too. I have
seen that some people either listen to the
same bands, artists and genres. I have
also learnt that some of my audience
listen to punk and rock which is helpful
as this is the type of genre my music
