Abstract
Titel: Restricting, fortifying or liberating? - An interview study about expressing yourself in several musical style areas
The purpose of this study is to find out what it means to a musician to express him- or herself in several musical style areas. From a hermeneutical perspective, interviews have been made with four musicians, who have studied jazz or classical music at a academy of music. Common to these four musicians is a special interest in some kind of popular music which they now combines with jazz or classical music as their areas of musical specialty. The result of this study shows that the musicians' interest in popular music started out in their teens and that they later developed this in parallel with jazz or classical... (More)

Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka vad det innebär att som musiker uttrycka sig inom flera musikaliska stilområden. Utifrån ett hermeneutiskt perspektiv har intervjuer gjorts med fyra musiker som studerat jazz eller västerländsk konstmusik vid någon musikhögskola. Gemensamt för informanterna är ett utvecklat intresse för någon form av populärmusik vilka de med jazzen eller den västerländska konstmusiken kombinerar som sina musikaliska specialområden. Intervjustudiens resultat visar att musikernas intresse för populärmusiken odlats i tonåren och att de senare utvecklat detta parallellt med jazzen eller den västerländska konstmusiken, eftersom dessa områden inte visat sig vara tillräckliga för att tillfredsställa deras musikaliska...

Att uttrycka sig inom flera stilområden upplever informanterna som något berikande men upplever delvis
problem med att få tiden att räcka till för att fullt ut kunna utöva sina respektive stilområden. (Less)
