Musician’s Insights: Truth or Cliché?

Musicians know a lot of stories, legends and half-truths – and they love them. Between Rock’n’Rollers marauding in hotel rooms and die-hard rappers’ street gang activity, the second phase of the Power Of Music campaign focuses on these clichés (or are they truths?).

Various motifs in 2017 offered the more “unexpected” insights into the world of music. The tonality of the production varied from deliberately provocative to philosophically playful, from hard rock to ballad, but the common denominator always remained “The Power Of Music”.
