    Hemmabion fonogrambranchens fiende nummer ett2006Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 points / 15 hpStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Fonogrambranschen har aldrig mått sämre än idag, i alla fall inte under de senaste 17 åren och några av dessa faktorer som bidragit till nedgången finns presenterade i den här rapporten. Det vi kan se klart och tydligt är en koppling mellan den sjunkande fonogramförsäljningen och konsumentens ökande intresse för filmköp. Allt för låg kvalité på artister och album har lett till fonogrambranschens nedgång och den låga kvaliteten på fonogram gör att konsumenten tappar intresse för produkten och väljer att köpa en alternativ produkt.

    Musical Nation Bildung: The Twin Enterprises Concerts Norway and Concerts Sweden2018In: Aesthetics and Politics: A Nordic Perspective on How Cultural Policy Negotiates the Agency of Music and Arts / [ed] Ole Marius Hylland & Erling Bjurström, Cham: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, 1, p. 25-65Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    By exploring and comparing the history of the twin enterprises Concerts Norway and Concerts Sweden from the 1960s up till today, Bjurström and Hylland show how efforts to democratise and make high quality music accessible to more people were combined with ideas on the necessity to cultivate them, in line with the tradition of Bildung (cultivation, refinement or liberal education). As cultural policy initiatives the two enterprises are considered as ways of negotiating between aesthetics and politics, which result in valuations and assignments of different values to musical genres. The authors offer a thorough understanding of the factors that contributed to changing these valuations and assignments over time, as well as the overall policy and practices of the two musical cultural policy enterprises.

    Förhållandet idrott och musik, inte helt klarlagt: Anthony Bateman & John Bale (red) Sporting Sounds: Relationships Between Sport and Music 274 sidor, inb., ill. Abingdon, Oxon: Routledge 2009 ISBN 978-0-415-44367-82009In: Idrottsforum.org, ISSN 1652-7224, no 25 novemberArticle, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Idrott och musik kan förenas som kulturella uttryck, sida vid sida, i lokala, regionala, nationella eller globala kontexter, framsprungna ur behov av att skapa sammanhang mellan uttrycksformer, eller att förmedla känslor, eller att blott berätta om något som ska hända eller har hänt. Idrott och musik förenas också i modern arenasport där musiken har till uppgift att lägga band på åskådarnas otålighet vid avblåsningar, sidbyten, samt före och efter match. I till exempel konståkning är musiken en oskiljbar del av sporten. Tjänstgörande redaktör var spänd på vad den beställda recensionsboken Sporting Sounds skulle bjuda. Det var också den tilltänkte recensenten, idrotts- och kulturstudieforskaren David Cardell. Möjligen blev båda besvikna. Sporting Sounds (Routledge) är en antologi sammanställd av Anthony Bateman och John Bale, och som antologier plägar så spretar också denna i skilda riktningar, utan, menar vår recensent, den nödvändiga, handfasta sammanhållning och vägledning som man nog förväntar sig av dess redaktörer. Cardell har tagit det oväntade steget att i sin recension inkludera hela innehållsförteckningen, i förmodat syfte att visa på de svårigheter som boken erbjuder en recensent. Vi noterar till vår glädje att en av forumets medarbetare, Dan Porsfelt, bidrar med en förkortad version av den text han publicerade i dessa spalter i september 2005. Ytterligare en forumskribent, Henning Eichberg, medverkar med en text. Däremot letar vi förgäves efter en text av Mike Huggins och Keith Gregson, till exempel deras tidigare publicerade ”Northern Songs, Sporting Heroes and Regional Consciousness, c. 1800-c. 1880”.

    UUB 20:13 – A Contextual Analysis of a Lute Manuscript1990In: Svensk tidskrift för musikforskning, ISSN 0081-9816, Vol. 71, p. 122-122Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The paper studies the Uppsala University Li- brary Manuscript Imhs 20:13, a four-folio lute manuscript for a thirteen-course baroque lute containing two suites – in D sharp minor and G sharp major respectively – and an intabulation of an Affettuoso del Sig re Chelleri. The paper falls into four major parts.

    The first chapter presents the manuscript and summarizes what has been written about it in the literature preceding this paper, including RISM . The watermark is treated in order to confirm or rebut the RISM dating, as well the datings proposed by e.g. Sparr and Rudén.

    The second chapter treats the suites, and surveys their harmonic, melodic and rhythmic treatments as well as usage of ornament signs. A reference material of post-1720 lute composers is compared to the suites as to usage of ornament signs, handwriting, suite compiling and other stylistic traits. This is done in order to place the MS in its contextual scene concerning musical style, technical complexity and also hints at compositional affinities with some of the composers in the reference material.

    The third chapter describes the Affettuoso, the musical style of which differs to a large degree from that of the suites. The music per se is analysed concerning style, as was the case with the suites in chapter two. The composer Chelleri is presented in general, and his connection to Sweden in particular. The Affettuoso exists in nine versions in Sweden, all of which have been put in juxtaposition with the Imhs 20:13 version in order to place the MS in time and place. One of the concordances is associated with a specific person – Carl Leuhusen – whom is briefly accounted for. Invariances be- tween Imhs 20:13 and some of the concordances concerning musical realization suggest a dating for the former. The lack of preserved versions of the Affettuoso in countries other than Sweden suggests a Swedish origin for Imhs 20:13.

    The fourth chapter views all other Swedish lute MSS with 18th century dating, in order to detect similarities. A general search for mid- 18th century Swedish lutenists has revealed the names of three musicians: David Kellner, Carl Gustav von Düben and Christian Ludvig Kuhlau are described and examined as potential authors of 20:13.

    The muscial appendix includes a facsimile of UUB Imhs 20:13, a keyboard transcription of the said MS as well as edited versions of all the concordances of the Affettuoso.

    UUB 20:13 – A Contextual Analysis of a Lute Manuscript1991Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 40 credits / 60 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Of the various periods in the lute's history, that which is chronologically closest to us - the 18th century - is ironically the least familiar. The lute is strongly associated with Elisabethan England through well known composers such as John Dowland, and the 17th century French lutenists' influence on the style brise clavecin composers is similarly well documented. However, the generations of German lutenists working after c.1720 are largely unfamiliar today. One explanation is that by this time the lute had lost the preeminence which it had enjoyed in previous centuries, its position as the main chordal-, dynamically flexible instrument having been supplanted by the piano-forte. Also, writers such as Mattheson criticised the lute for being exceptionally hard to play and tune, as well as excessively expensive to maintain.2 Moreover, the gradual abandonment of the continuo concept deprived the lute of its accompanimental role.

    Thus, 18th century lutenists were writing for an increasingly obsolescent instrument. However, they were very productive and technically innovative, and the treasury of 18th century lute music constitutes a rich, interesting and idiomatic contribution to the repertory of the instrument. Few of the works were ever published, however, and the bulk of the repertory is preserved in MSS in various museums and libraries, which thus renders it inaccessible. The notation presents a further difficulty, since virtually all of this music was written in tablature - a notation which few scholars read.

    Although Sweden's contribution to the history of the lute was never major, a relatively large amount of lute music is preserved in Swedish libraries, museums and foundations. Most of these have been treated in a series of articles by Kenneth Sparr in the Swedish Guitar and Lute Society Journal,3 but there are no thorough studies of Swedish lute MSS, with the sole exception of Bengt Hambreaus' Codex Carminum Gallicorum,4 translated into French.

    Furthermore, articles on Swedish lute MSS in international languages are even less common, and consequently knowledge about the music concerned is inaccessible to the international audience of players and scholars.

    The aforementioned situations provided the author with ample justification for writing this paper.

    Kulning: A study of the physiological basis for long-distance sound propagation in Swedish cattle calls2018In: Proceedings of FONETIK 2016, KTH Royal Institute of TechnologyStockholm, Sweden8-10 June 2016 / [ed] Jens Edlund, Stockholm: Royal Institute of Technology , 2018, p. 25-30Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish cattle call song, kulning, is an example of very marked and far-reaching sound propagation of vocal communication. While earlier studies have investigated the acoustic characteristics of kulning, the present study focuses on its physiological basis from the point of view of vocal fold functionand supralaryngeal posture by applying electroglottography and stroboscopy to two types singing: falsetto (head voice)and kulning. It is shown that kulning, ascompared to falsetto, exhibits a better contact of the vocal folds and a longer glottal closure in the phonation cycle. Nasofiberendoscopy also showedmedial and anteroposterior narrowing of the laryngeal inlet and approximation of the false vocal folds in kulning.

    Art music as transnational practices2010In: 15th Nordic Migration Research Conference Global Challenges - Local Responses. The Book of programme and abstracts / [ed] Povrzanović Frykman, Maja, Malmö: Malmö University Electronic Publishing, www.mah.se/muep , 2010, p. 72-Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    It is common to map culture onto socially bounded entities such as ethnic groups and nation-states. This conception spills over to migrants and diasporas – the Gurungs have Gurung culture, the Greeks have Greek culture, the Kurdish diaspora has Kurdish culture. This paper looks at exactly the opposite. We will analyze art music as a unified transnational practice that, however, is maintained by a group of people that is fragmented both socially and – except for the common allegiance to their musical art – culturally. They speak different languages, have different religions, belong to different nations. The analysis draws upon two different traditions of transnationalism in art music: Western ”classical music” and Southasian shastriya sangit. Both are constituted within multiple fields interconnected by flows of both people and cultural goods, making up translocal opportunity structures. And moreover, these two cases give historical depth to our understanding of transnational practice: they were, so to say, transnational long before the era of the nation-state.

    Local cultural activism and the production of public meaning: a Kirtipur case study

    Ingemar Grandin, Linköpings universitet, Sweden

    This contribution studies Nepal’s democratic transition as it is articulated and interpreted in local cultural production. The town of Kirtipur is a good case of this. Cultural activism voicing both political and ethnic issues is a longstanding tradition here, and is tied in with other ways of creating public history. To give an example, the names of the four Kirtipur martyrs (shahid) of the Jana Andolan of 1990 are perpetuated not only in memorialising cultural programs but also in the very name of a successful local school.

    Kirtipur cultural activists have navigated through the sometimes turbulent years of post-pancayat Nepal, actively relating to events such as the Jana Andolans and their aftermaths, the Gyanendra era with its curfews, and the advent of the Maovadis. Commenting, arguing, and reflecting upon such events but also upon more general social and cultural conditions, they have performed from makeshift local stages such as a water tank or a crossroads as well as on more formal stages in Kathmandu. As they go by, they forge links and make alliances with people (songwriters, dance directors, in theatre) and organisations (cultural, educational, political) who operate on a translocal or national level. But still the Kirtipur scene remains very much a locally situated practice.

    Beside the ”live” cultural programs, the output of this practice includes media artifacts such as cassettes, cds, video-cds, and recordings and visualisations for broadcasting purposes. In both media artifacts and live programs, songs are the single most important component. New songs are continuously devised, but the Kirtipur cultural activists also draw upon an accumulated, large repertory from which items can be mobilised when the situation so calls for. 

    Grounded in in both historical and local/national contexts, my analysis of this cultural practice and these cultural products aim for the stories they tell about, and the meanings they give to, the sociopolitical conditions, developments and events of the recent decades. My contribution builds upon familiarity with cultural activism, in Kirtipur and on a more national (i.e. Kathmandu) level, and the empirical material has been collected in 2010 as well as intermittently throughout the transition period (and back into the late days of the pancayat era). The data include song texts as copied in notebooks, printed or the like; songs as sung at programs or demonstrated at home (and recorded by me) but also as preserved on local recordings or brought out on commercially available cassettes, cds and videos; programs as observed live and as seen on local recordings. In my study of the local production of public meaning here, not only texts, but also musical resources such as melodies and instruments and the non-verbal statements in dress and dance will be ”decoded”. And finally, not only the artifacts but also the practice of cultural activism itself (as observed and as inferred from interview data) will be ”read” as a running commentary on Nepal’s democratic transition. The very decision to stage a program or write a song at a particular moment can be understood as a statement on how that transition is seen to proceed.

    Music and media in local life: music practice in a Newar neighbourhood in Nepal2011 (ed. 2)Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This books presents the musical life of the Newar town of Kirtipur, Nepal. Newar musical traditions are prominent in the local musical life, and this heritage is presented in some detail in the book. Between the vivacious peaks of musical activity from the traditional ensembles, however, modern music from radios and cassette-players take over much of the town’s soundscape. So the role of the media in local musical life is the book’s second major theme. A third major theme is how the vibrant ethnic and political movements help shape the town’s musical activity.With their rich and complex civilization, the Newars have given the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal much of its unique culture and cultural heritage. Music and media in local life was first published in 1989, and is still today the only study of Newar musical life in a full book format. This is the second, updated edition of the book.

Söktrycket till olika musikgenrer och skolor analyseras och jazzinritningarna visar sig tillerkännas ett särskilt värde bland de aspirerade musikerna.

Mot slutet av kapitlet väcks frågan om musiklinjerna på folkhögskolorna är i färd att utvecklas mot en form av estetiska collegeutbildningar skiktade mellan högt och lågt, elit- och massutbildningar.

    Skolning i jazz: Värde, selektion och studiekarriär vid folkhögskolornas musiklinjer2014Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis examines the music careers to and from folk high school training programs through four empirical articles. Building on relational sociological theory and methods, predominantly the work of Pierre Bourdieu, the thesis first provides a cartographic analysis of the cultural hierarchies of folk high school music training within the Swedish educational landscape. The investigations show how music has grown to become the biggest thematic orientation among the specialized programs of the folk high schools. They also reveal how these programs can be positioned at an intermediary stage, while being differentiated between mass- and elite- schooling. Next, the thesis outlines detailed analyses of the recruitment base of the dominating music programs in jazz and the study careers of their participants. By means of relational statistical methods, we investigate the inclusion into and exclusion from elite educational programs in jazz, and uncover the force and composition of a specific form of music capital. Analysis from an in-depth ethnographic account of the gatekeeping procedures of jazz auditions allows for the discussion of several tensions between evaluation and value, rulefollowing and rule-transgression, as well as charismatic and institutional means of valuation.

    Abstract [en]

    This article examines music auditions in jazz education and the artistic valuation of music performances by gatekeepers working in two prestigious schools. Using the inherent insecurities of the entry-test situation as a site of ethnographic fieldwork, the article explores the whole chain of valuation needed in order to produce a hierarchical ordinal ranking of the candidates. By drawing attention to the distinction between what is being said and what is being done by the gatekeepers, a structural ambiguity is identified in the selection game: on the one hand, it is dependent on romantic notions of artistic uniqueness (originality, personality, authenticity) and on the other, it relies on the requirements of jurisdiction and equal assessment (numerical grading, standardized repertoire). The artistic doxa of jazz is constituted in opposition to two negative characters, either by framing the candidates as epigones – echoing the standard repertoire too closely – or framing them as heretics, considered as traitors to the local interpretation of the standard.

    Abstract [en]

    A common dream among the youth is to become a successful musician. By surveying young aspiring jazz musicians trying to enter a prestigious audition, this paper examines assets and attitudes involved in the formation of a music field. In the study we build on Bourdieusian sociological theory and method in order to map out a space of jazz applicants and characterize the group(s) seeking to enter. Our findings, based on a specific multiple correspondence analysis performed on 211 applicants, suggest that the space of jazz applicants is structured by three important factors: (i) the total volume of music capital, (ii) commitment to the (professional) field of practice and (iii) the familiarity acquired through previous music socialization and training. Using clustering techniques, we further distinguish four distinct groups among the applicants - the Insiders, Outsiders, Inheritors and Underdogs - and reveal the success rate of the groups. We find that the acquisition and enactment of a specific music capital is of particular importance for elite music admissions, while at the same time the sizeable number of musically affluent candidates turns the audition into an event underscored with considerable uncertainty.

    Abstract [sv]

    I denna utbildningssociologiska studie placeras folkhögskolorna in i det svenska utbildningslandskapet och presenteras som intermediära utbildningsinstitutioner vilka står i relation till studieprogram på gymnasieskolorna samt efterföljande studiealternativ på högskolorna. Först presenteras en kartläggning av volymtillströmningen till folkhögskolorna under den senaste femtonårsperioden, där vi visar att antalet deltagare på allmänna linjer har minskat, medan antalet deltagare på de särskilda linjerna inriktade på musik- och annan estetisk verksamhet har haft betydande volymökningar. Därefter används registerdata från SCB över folkhögskolekohorter mellan åren 2000 och 2002, för att analysera vilka sociala grupper det är som studerat på vilken typ av folkhögskoleutbildning. Resultaten visar att folkhögskolorna används av olika sociala grupper beroende på om man fokuserar på musiklinjer, estetlinjer och allmänna linjer. Ytterligare skillnader i rekryteringen framträder om man jämför olika profiler inom musikområdet. Ett särskilt fokus för analysen är rekryteringen till Skurups och Fridhems jazzlinjer, vilket vi tar som exempel på hur somliga folkhögskoleprogram utvecklats till elitlinjer.

    Från digitalt till analogt: En kvalitativ studie av överföringsprocesserna från MIDI till notskrift i symfonisk musik2009Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines how to translate digitally composed symphonic music to note script and how it gets readable and playable. With the help of professional musicians from the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, teachers from Kulturskolan in Norrköping as well as other musicians, I have learned how I can improve each individual stem in my composition. I also learned how to write for a real musician. My score have been analyzed by composers and a conductor which have given me a more in depth insight into composing symphonic music.

    The theory section describes important MIDI aspects, score preparation and note editing techniques. Thereafter is a section about the symphony orchestra and its instruments’ history and how the situation is today. Furthermore the work process of the conductor and the choral conductor are described as well as the interpretation of the musician. The theory section concludes with a survey on musical factors in relation to experienced emotions.

    The execution section describes how I first worked with the composition to adjust MIDI values in the sequencer program Nuendo 3, then how to write correct note script in the note script program Finale 2009. Thereafter the adjustments I needed to make after interviewing musicians as well as composers and a conductor are described and eventual problems that occurred meanwhile.

    The result section sums up the thoughts and suggestions made by the professional musicians, composers and conductor about the individual parts’ playability and readability. It turned out that the stems were written in the wrong time signature and had a few graphical flaws. The result of the survey on the digital composition experienced by the musicians as well as the composers is described. Most people experienced the piece as warlike.

    The discussion section and conclusion discuss what could have been done differently, what compromises had to be made and what were most difficult to execute. MIDI related issues are discussed that take place in composing digital music and during the translation to note script. Then my opinion regarding how well this method works in translating MIDI to note script is discussed as well as what I would do different in an upcoming project. Lastly I speak about suggested topics for future research.
