Musicology Activity (The Necks – The Boys)

As a musicological activity, I would like to discuss the style/genre the Necks fall within. This would be an open ended question that would hopefully fuel a discussion about what determines a style or genre.

We would also look at the role of improvisation within the music of the Necks, and how the The Necks have utilised this idea (of improvisation) which has deep seeded routes in Jazz music. Essentially, students would learn about the role of improvisation in Jazz and avant-garde traditions, and how The Necks have amalgamated attributes from both these musical traditions to form their own unique style.
