A music genre is a conventional category that identifies some pieces of music as belonging to a shared tradition or set of conventions. It is to be distinguished from musical form and musical style, although in practice these terms are sometimes used interchangeably. Academics have argued that categorizing music by genre is inaccurate and outdated. Music can be divided into different genres in many different ways; the artistic nature of music means that these classifications are subjective and controversial, some genres may overlap. There are varying academic definitions of the term genre itself. In his book Form in Tonal Music, Douglass M. Green distinguishes between form, he lists madrigal, canzona and dance as examples of genres from the Renaissance period. To further clarify the meaning of genre, Green writes, "Beethoven's Op. 61 and Mendelssohn's Op. 64 are identical in genre – both are violin concertos – but different in form. However, Mozart's Rondo for Piano, K. 511, the Agnus Dei from his Mass, K. 317 are quite different in genre but happen to be similar in form."
Some, like Peter van der Merwe, treat the terms genre and style as the same, saying that genre should be defined as pieces of music that share a certain style or "basic musical language." Others, such as Allan F. Moore, state that genre and style are two separate terms, that secondary characteristics such as subject matter can differentiate between genres. A music genre or subgenre may be defined by the musical techniques, the style, the cultural context, the content and spirit of the themes. Geographical origin is sometimes used to identify a music genre, though a single geographical category will include a wide variety of subgenres. Timothy Laurie argues that since the early 1980s, "genre has graduated from being a subset of popular music studies to being an ubiquitous framework for constituting and evaluating musical research objects". Among the criteria used to classify musical genres are the trichotomy of art and traditional musics. Alternatively, music can be divided on three variables: arousal and depth.
Arousal reflects the energy level of the music. These three variables help explain why many people like similar songs from different traditionally segregated genres. Musicologists have sometimes classified music according to a trichotomic distinction such as Philip Tagg's "axiomatic triangle consisting of'folk','art' and'popular' musics", he explains that each of these three is distinguishable from the others according to certain criteria. The term art music refers to classical traditions, including both contemporary and historical classical music forms. Art music exists in many parts of the world, it emphasizes formal styles that invite technical and detailed deconstruction and criticism, demand focused attention from the listener. In Western practice, art music is considered a written musical tradition, preserved in some form of music notation rather than being transmitted orally, by rote, or in recordings, as popular and traditional music are. Most western art music has been written down using the standard forms of music notation that evolved in Europe, beginning well before the Renaissance and reaching its maturity in the Romantic period.
The identity of a "work" or "piece" of art music is defined by the notated version rather than by a particular performance, is associated with the composer rather than the performer. This is so in the case of western classical music. Art music may include certain forms of jazz, though some feel that jazz is a form of popular music. Sacred Christian music forms an important part of the classical music tradition and repertoire, but can be considered to have an identity of its own; the term popular music refers to any musical style accessible to the general public and disseminated by the mass media. Musicologist and popular music specialist Philip Tagg defined the notion in the light of sociocultural and economical aspects: Popular music, unlike art music, is conceived for mass distribution to large and socioculturally heterogeneous groups of listeners and distributed in non-written form, only possible in an industrial monetary economy where it becomes a commodity and in capitalist societies, subject to the laws of'free' enterprise... it should ideally sell as much as possible.
Popular music is found on most commercial and public service radio stations, in most commercial music retailers and department stores, in movie and television soundtracks. It is noted on the Billboard charts and, in addition to singer-songwriters and composers, it involves music producers more than other genres do; the distinction between classical and popular music has sometimes been blurred in marginal areas such as minimalist music and light classics. Background music for films/movies draws on both traditions. In this respect, music is like fiction, which draws a distinction between literary fiction and popular fiction, not always precise. Country music known as country and western, hillbilly music, is a genre of popular music that originated in the southern United States in the early 1920s; the polka is a Czech dance and genre of dance music familiar throughout Europe and the Americas. Rock music is a broad genre of popular music that originated as "rock and roll" in the United States in the early 1950s, developed into a range of different styles in the 1960s and particular

Gustavo Adrián Cerati was an Argentine singer-songwriter and producer, considered one of the most important and influential figures of Ibero-American rock. Cerati along with his band Soda Stereo, were one of the most popular and influential Spanish-language rock and pop groups of the 1980s and ’90s. Cerati was the recipient of many awards throughout his career including various Grammys, MTV awards, as well as the MTV Legend Award with Soda Stereo, the first of its kind. Cerati died on 4 September 2014 at the age of 55, after suffering a stroke four years earlier in Caracas, Venezuela which resulted in a coma, when Cerati had gone out to party at the rock club Moulin Rouge, located on Francisco Solano López Avenue in the Sabana Grande area of Caracas. Cerati was born on 11 August 1959 in Argentina, he grew up in a middle class household. His father was an accountant and traveled abroad. From his early memories he had an idyllic love of the nature. Cerati’s first passion was art and in elementary school he drew comics and created his own comic book characters.
Cerati’s parents acquired a guitar for him when he was nine years old, at that point Cerati started to take music becoming a fanatic of rock and roll: Los que me pegaron en ese momento fueron Hendrix con "Purple Haze" y The Who con "Pictures of Lily". Durante semanas los escuché sin parar. Ahí se. By the age of 13, he formed a trio and started playing at house parties and in the local Catholic school, where he joined the choir. Cerati was a good student until his third year of junior high school when he met a fellow student who, like himself, was into rock and roll, He was more advanced in everything, he smoked marijuana and had many records. At that moment I started to separate myself from my classmates. I started listening to Progressive rock because this guy had everything, King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Soft Machine, Roxy Music... My dad used to travel abroad on business trips and he started bringing me records. In 1973 it was not easy to have imports. In Argentina the records came out a long time after....they came out.
My father brought me a Gibson. I went to meet him at the airport and it was unforgettable. After serving compulsory military service in 1979 Cerati entered the university to pursue a degree in marketing, something that he was not passionate about, his family supported him with his music, "Mi familia me vio tan enloquecido con la música, que pensaron que algo de éxito iba a tener". At the Universidad del Salvador, a Jesuit university in Buenos Aires, he met Héctor "Zeta" Bosio a marketing student; the two decided to form a band. They were fans of The Police, The Beatles, XTC, Elvis Costello and The Talking Heads. In 1982, after various lineup changes that included Richard Coleman, Daniel Melero, Andrés Calamaro as well as others and Cerati recruited Charly Alberti as their drummer, thus forming Soda Stereo. Soda Stereo released their debut LP Soda Stereo that same year. Nada Personal followed in 1985 giving Soda Stereo their first hit with "Cuando pase el temblor". Soda released Signos in 1986, Doble Vida in 1988, Canción Animal in 1990.
During the 1990s Soda Stereo released Dynamo in 1992, Sueño Stereo in 1995, their final album Comfort y Música Para Volar in 1997. In 1992 Cerati recorded Colores Santos with electronic musician Daniel Melero, a longtime Soda Stereo collaborator. 1993 saw the release of Cerati's first solo album Amor Amarillo, which included the participation of Zeta Bosio and Cerati's wife at the time, the Chilean singer and model Cecilia Amenábar who sang and appeared on the video for the lead single "Te llevo para que me lleves". In 1995 Gustavo Cerati teamed up with three Chilean musicians, Andrés Bucci, Guillermo Ugarte, Christian Powditch, to form Plan V. Plan V released two albums Plan V, Plan Black V Dog, a collaboration with the British electronic music group The Black Dog. In 1999 Cerati formed the electronic duo Ocio with longtime Soda Stereo collaborator and trumpeter, Flavio Etcheto, releasing Medida Universal. Around this time Cerati participated in the album Outlandos d'Americas: A Rock en Español Tribute to the Police collaborating with Andy Summers of The Police and Vinnie Colaiuta, on a cover of The Police's "Bring on the Night,".
Bocanada was regarded as Gustavo Cerati's proper debut as a solo artist. It was recorded in Estudio CasaSubmarina in Buenos Aires. Cerati used an MPC to record many of the tracks; the 48 piece orchestra in "Verbo Carne" was recorded in Abbey Road Studios in London. The album was mixed and mastered in London at Townhouse Studios. Bocanada' reached gold status in Argentina and received many accolades in the Argentinian and Latin American press; the album was universally praised for its grandeur and its beauty and is still considered by critics and
