Mastery Rap: Helping Audiences Realize They Aren’t Alone

May 21, 2020 by CM1 Student Vansh C.

Back to all projects

Driving Question: How can I use music to have a powerful impact on a multicultural audience, making them realise they are not alone in the mental challenges they often face.

Project Description: Through my mastery project, I wanted to evoke emotions that have rarely been evoked in a listener through a song, to make them realise that they are not alone in the problem they face.

After listening to a song, the listener should think something like, “Wow, I never thought someone else would be going through the exact same thing” or “I can’t believe that someone else found this problem and I have been experiencing all my life but never recognized as a problem.” It’s a mix between a call for action and recognition.

If one person tells me they were in a tough spot in their lives and that my music helped them get through that, I know I’ll have accomplished something.
