Empty Spaces: Using Abandoned Buildings as Sources of Inspiration for Musical Composition
2015 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This thesis explores the transition from a visual to an audible field by means of songwriting. The research was motivated by a will to bring outside influences into the pop/rock medium. By making the visual field, here represented in form of abandoned places, the starting point for a songwriting process, the premises were different from what is normative within the genre. The premises for songwriting were also different from my earlier experiences within the field. The aims of the research are to explore what sorts of sounds and ideas photographs of abandoned buildings can inspire, and in what ways they can be used in pop/rock songs. The artistic outcomes of this research are eight pieces of music; four instrumental songs, and four pop/rock inspired songs. The method turned out to be applicable as an extended songwriting exercise as well as a songwriting method.
