Music and sustainability
Music is an integral part of everyday life. Everyone listens to music every day. That is, music, a song, works with familiar means and does not require a separate explanation, but acts through itself.

Personal experiences using the example
of 2 music projects
Music is indispensable in daily life. Everyone hears music every day. That means music, a song, works with well-known familiar means and needs no separate explanation, but works by itself.
Music can be independently controlled e.g. of the “product” and “subject of sale” are used and heard everywhere, in the car, leisure and work. This means that music supplements the spoken word or a written presentation and can consolidate long-term positive feelings.
Catchy melodies are sung along inside. A text with a positive attunement statement can be affirmative. Headline and key statements complement the concept of the company or organization.
