Methods for Making More Music : An observation of composition in jazz music (English)
Abstract [sv]

Detta är en studie i lärandeprocesser. Syftet med denna studie är att studera olika metodiska och tekniska infallsvinklar för komposition och hur dessa kan bidra till att väcka inspirationen och kreativiteten hos en kompositör och/eller arrangör. I studien har min avsikt varit att under en termin skriva 3-4 låtar för en fast sättning och studera min arbetsprocess och mina vägar till inspiration under komponerandet. Jag har analyserat vilka kompositionsmetoder jag använder mig av samt försökt utröna om detta kan vara ett sätt att motverka inspirationsbrist och öka kreativiteten hos mig som kompositör. Observationen har i huvudsak dokumenterats med loggbok som hjälpmedel. Studien har gjorts utifrån ett fenomenologiskt perspektiv, och resultatet av mina observationer har analyserats med fenomenologi som grund. Det har under min studie framkommit att jag kombinerar många olika metoder i mitt kompositionsarbete som fasta teman för varje stycke, tidigare erfarenheter av komposition och arrangering, olika klangfärger och intuition. 

Abstract [en]

This is a study about learning processes. The purpose of this study is to study various methodological and technical approaches to composition and how they can help to bring the inspiration and creativity of a composer and/or arranger. In this study I intended to compose and arrange 3-4 songs for a music ensemble, using this as a study of my composition process. I have analyzed my composing methods, and also attempted to determine if this might be a way to avoid an absence of inspiration and increase creativity for composers. This observation has mainly been documented using the logbook. This study is carried out with a phenomenological perspective, and the result of my observations is analyzed with phenomenology as the basis. The study demonstrates that I use various methods combined in my composing work, such as a principal focus for every piece, my experience in composing and music arranging, different tone-colours and intuition.
