Homework for Week 3 Class discussion

Post by Admin on Mon Jan 11, 2016 12:59 pm

David Bowie – Pop Icon

“As was the case with Miles Davis in jazz, Bowie has come not just to represent his innovations but to symbolize modern rock as an idiom in which literacy, art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary can be rolled into one.” Rolling Stone magazine

Discussion for next week will revolve around Music and its place in our society, particularly looking at the life and music of David Bowie. So your homework is to read up a little on Bowie and his influence as well as talking about your preferred music and the place music occupies in our society.

John do you have an idea of websites to learn a little bit more about Bowie without asking Wikipédia?

Official website : http://www.davidbowie.com/
Fan sites: http://www.bowiewonderworld.com/
Respected newspapers: http://www.theguardian.com/music/davidbowie
In pics: http://www.theguardian.com/music/gallery/2016/jan/11/david-bowies-life-and-career-in-pictures

At the moment there are so many sites that are looking over his life and the effects he had on my generation.

When you look/read remember that the 70's were a very different time to now in the West.

There are a lot of documentaries out there too:

Though they are probably too long and boring for you youngsters to watch. Very Happy
