SUPPORT METALFEST -PSYCHOFIXATION-metal to the people sign now

Dear Republic Polytechnic events person-in-charge,

We are here to support an RP student, Cynthia (Cynner) aged 18, on her ambitions in organising an event, a MetalFestival, for the metal scene in Singapore.

It will not just be 'another metal gig', but more of a gig, PLUS a set-up so that people could rent a booth to sell metal band shirts, accessories, even their band CDs, and maybe Black Cotton Candy.

Profits could either go to a charitable organisation, or to the RP as a fund-raising event. Ultimately, it will be open to public, restricted to aged 13 and above, not restricted to RP students only.

We believe that this will make a difference to the metal scene, and make it shine like the tough material it is.

People who listens to metal are not 'bad' people, and we hereby sign to support her idea to make this event happen, we believe that good music is to be shared to the people.

Below is the extract of the proposal:

Construction of Metal Appreciation Community

Background

Metal music began as the work of the youth born after age of a highly developmental period for Western civilization era. In which it, having defeated fascism and nationalism and other old-world evolution-based systems of government, considered itself highly evolved in a human way of liberal democracy which benefited the individual more than any system previously on record.
During this era, society served citizens in their search for the most convenient lifestyle possible, and any questions or goals outside of this worldview were not considered.

Philosophy
Existentialist F.W Nietzsche once said: The awareness that life is finite and of functional, transactional maintenance; that we are both predator and prey, and that we have no control over our lives or death.

Nietzsche (and thinkers such as Arthur Schopenhauer before him) realized the belief that there is no value other than the physical interaction of the natural world.

Heavy metal, as the music most visibly fascinated with death and suffering addresses the sublimated issue of Nietzsche's theory in Western society, which has based its principles and individual social and values upon the polarity of "good" and "evil," is an identification with the enemy.

Music
Art does not exist simply within the minds of its creators. If a concept is applied to music, there is a corresponding concept in structure and the worldview of the artist that creates the frame of mind in which the artist creates music which sounds like his/her desired value system. Art is too complex to be created without any prior thought as to what it expresses; this concept is common in literature and visual art, but ignored in popular music (perhaps because in most popular music, the concept - and the music - reflect crassy materialism and futile mental imbalance and not much else).

At the end of an age of moral symbolism, metal is recreating the language of music to reflect heroic values. And while metal has evolved over several generations, several musical facets remain the same, suggesting a corresponding shared conceptual underlying.

This "design form" of metal differs from popular music in one simple way, but from this arise any number of techniques and attributes which allow composers to create in this method. Its primary distinguishing characteristic is that metal embraces structure more than any other form of popular music; while rock is notorious for its verse-chorus-verse structure and jazz emphasizes a looser version of the same allowing unfetter improvisation, metal emphasizes a motivating, melodic narrative structure in the same way that classical and baroque music do. Each piece may utilize other techniques, but what holds it together is a melodic progression between ideas that do not fit into simple verse-chorus descriptors.

Sub-Genres:
Black Metal
Classic Metal
Death Metal
Doom Metal
Folk Metal
Glam / Hair Metal
Gothic Metal
Grind Core
Industrial Metal
Neo-Classical Metal
Nu Metal
Power Metal
Progressive Metal
Speed Metal
Symphonic Metal
Thrash Metal
ABSOLUTELY NO METALCORE, Emo-Core, Hard-core
