Phase 4: Preparing to Share: Emerging Ideas
The main point that I want to get across to my audience is the importance of preserving Dongjing Music, or even just preserving history itself. My audience will mainly consist of teenagers and young adults, because it is only through the youth that history can be saved. Elders do not have the same capability as youth do to spread ideas and revive them. However, even before going into my philosophy of why it is important to revive tradition, I will need to give readers background information of Dongjing Music. I think that I can get the message across by doing two things: Write an essay and write a song integrating Dongjing styles with western musical styles. The essay format will give the reader a very well formatted and clear statement of the importance of tradition preservation and the song-writing will show that I have fully understood the Dongjing techniques and is more of a side-project for fun.
