Not at all. Let me explain how we arrived to the six topics. We wanted to give a complete global picture of what is going on, musically speaking, nowadays, and consequently, we launched an open call for musicians to submit tracks and clips to Norient. We received more than 1000 submissions from all over the planet. Afterwards, we did a huge excel sheet with tags such as “money, love, gun shots, war, bomb, etc.” The tags we worked with were found either in the title, heard in the lyrics or seen in the videos.
The six topics selected were the most repeated in our study. In fact, "loneliness" is the only topic we found in Europe and the US, the rest were worldwide. War, for example, was found in places where, of course, there's war; but also in places where there isn't, like the UK. Some people are fascinated by it, they use sounds of bombs in the base to make it stronger, for example. Thus, you see, it's the same subject with different motivations.
