The popular music movement has originated in Turkey during 1950s with the name of “Arrangement Era” producing music in western format. Over time, the progressing movement has accumulated both European and American musical language and novelties and Turkish music elements. However, the fact that this music that can appear in various patterns such as “pop” or “rock” or “original music”, is described as a significant genre by musicologists and musicians, has initiated a weak research effort in the academic environment regarding the music produced in these genres in recent years.
This study will be a general review on whether the works made in today’s world that fall within the definition of “pop music” can or cannot be approached together with the subject of “concept” that has been used for decades in other branches of art as well as in fields that are closely related to art such as architecture and design.
Apart from the written references, the work includes a survey of statistics, interviews with the producers of accessible musicians, and a section on examining the selected samples.
