Kroppen och övandet: En observationsstudie om en slagverkares övningsprocess och användande av kroppsliga resurser

Body and practice : An observational study of a percussionist’s process in musical practice and usage of bodily resources (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka på vilket sätt en slagverkare använder kroppen som semiotisk resurs samt hur övningsprocessen under en begränsad period är utformad. För att undersöka detta har jag under en femveckorsperiod övat på ett marimbastycke 20 minuter om dagen fem dagar i veckan och dokumenterat detta genom videoobservationer och loggboksskrivande. I analysen utgår jag ifrån ett designteoretiskt perspektiv. I resultatet redovisas att kroppen används både som uttrycksmedel men även som ett substitut för metronomen. Under övningspassen ligger ett stort fokus på tempo och stycket övas i uppdelade avsnitt och sällan som helhet. I diskussionen debatteras mitt användande av kroppen som semiotisk resurs utifrån ett designteoretiskt perspektiv. Vidare diskuteras i förhållande till relevant litteratur och forskning huruvida min övningsstrategi är fördelaktig för min progression. 

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how a percussionist uses her body as a semiotic resource and how the process of practising during a limited period is designed. In order to realize this I have self-monitored my 20 minute long practice sessions five days a week during a five-week period. This process has been documented by a video recording device and by writing a log after each session. In the analysis I use design theory as a theoretical perspective. The results show that my body is used both as an expressive tool as well as substitute for the metronome. During the practice sessions, tempo appears to be the main focus, and the musical piece is played in separate movements and rarely played from beginning to end. In the last chapter usage of the body as a semiotic resource is discussed from a design theoretical perspective. Lastly the use and quality of my practice strategy is discussed in relation to relevant literature and research.
