Abstract [en]

This study set out to explore different ways to structure the dramaturgy within jazz music, using different levels of musical intensity over time. The author claims that there is a specific model, or method, which is used quite commonly in many types of jazz music, as well as in other genres. This model can be described as the level of intensity starting at a relatively low point, then increasing until it reaches a high point near the end of a certain timeframe, to finally round off with a quick downturn of the intensity level. For example, in jazz music this model could often be applied to a single solo, or an entire tune. The objective for this project was to see if it would be possible to find other such models for the dramaturgic structure, and to explore how these could possibly be applied.    The process of this study, was to first theorize a set of ideas for alternatives to the model described above. These ideas were then tested in a context, with the musicians from the author’s jazz quartet, which also was the band performing at the author’s graduation concert. After analyzing recordings of the ideas that were tested by the jazz quartet, the author extracted a few methods and principles out of them. He used what he came up with in this phase, as integral components when composing new musical material to perform with his quartet at the graduation concert.    There were some difficulties in drawing conclusions from the results of this study, due to its exploring nature and the vastness of the subject. Despite that, clear signs of potential regarding some of the alternative models for dramaturgic structure was shown. Arguments were made that the study produced some useful results within the scope of survey.
