Redundancy and Entropy Within Music.

Redundancy = something that is predictable/conventional within a message. It is usually something you should expect from a message or convention
Entropy = This is when something completely unpredictable is conveyed from a message / convention. If something is entropic, it contains unexpected elements.


In regards to my music video, 'Stronger - Kanye West' this video contains both aspects of entropy and redundancy. In terms of redundancy, the music video is redundant as the video ties in with the lyrics and dialogue from West.

 However the visuals individually are unexpected, and wouldn't be predicted as the mise en scene is mostly futuristic.


The video then moves on to a more redundant scene for videos of this genre, of West rapping into the camera, with a conventional background.

Synaesthesia Idea's

 We played our song to our audience, in a class activity and gave everyone a piece of sugar paper. Here, they wrote down what came into their minds when the song was played, thus resulting in giving us as a group plenty of idea's for the music video

Having just completed the pitch, me and my group think the pitch went really well, with most of our idea's being accepted. The feedback from peers was good, and we hope to incorporate these idea's into our work.

Myself and Beth knew it was vital to provide evidence of asking the artist to use the music for our video.
