My body is my instrument : A self-observation study on the effect of physical activity for singers (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med föreliggande studie är att genom självobservation utforska på vilka sätt min sång kan förändras av regelbunden fysisk aktivitet. Processen har bestått av fysisk aktivitet fyra gånger i veckan på Lifestyle Fitness Arvika samt övningspass i sång två gånger i veckan på Musikhögskolan Ingesund. Studien utgår från det fenomenologiska perspektivet med inriktning mot livsvärldsperspektivet och kroppens fenomenologi som skapar möjligheten att fritt reflektera kring hur jag upplever, erfar och handlar i ett sammanhang. Datamaterialet består av loggboksanteckningar och videodokumentation. Resultatet presenteras i fem olika teman som beskriver vilka mönster som framkommer i självobservationen. Dessa teman är Kroppens stabilitet, röstens utveckling, sångprestationens disposition kontra fysisk aktivitet, rutinskapande och när inspiration och motivation träder fram. Resultatet visar på för- och nackdelar samt förutsättningar som fysisk aktivitet kan ha för sjungandet. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to explore through self-observation how my singing can be changed by regular physical activity. The process consisted of physical activity four times a week at Lifestyle Fitness Arvika as well as a practice session in singing twice a week at Ingesund Music School. The study is based on the phenomenological perspective focusing on the lifeworld and the phenomenology of the body, which creates the opportunity to freely reflect on how I experience, learn and act in a context. The data consists of logbook entries and video documentation. The result is presented in five different themes describing the patterns that emerge in self-observation. These themes are the body's stability, the voice's development, the song performance disposition versus physical activity, routines and when inspiration and motivation occur. The result shows the pros and cons as well as the effect that physical activity may have for singing.
