    Listener Preferences in Streamed Music2022Inngår i: Journal of The Audio Engineering Society, ISSN 1549-4950, Vol. 70, nr 3, s. 156-176Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    A cross-disciplinary study between the two research areas of Audio Technology and Music Education was performed to assess how different aspects of education and experience may influence the experience of music listening given a typical streaming service-Spotify.(1) The point of departure is that streamed media facilitates a plenitude of versions of the same song. The paper focuses on the differences that these different songs yield from various mastering processes and production choices motivated by the end distribution media and user settings in the playback system that aim to alter the sound. These variations may all lead to differences in musical dynamics and timbre. A listening test was conducted to examine listeners’ preferences, the assessed audio quality, and subjects’ reports on how the music content affected them when given the possibility to compare versions in a controlled environment. The test subjects (n = 76) represented populations with various educational backgrounds and experience within music and audio technology. Among the results, it was found that education and experience in some cases do affect preferences.

    Playing Words, Speaking Music: An Autoethnographic Study on Intertextual Approach to Classical Composition2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This master thesis is an autoethnographic study, wherein the author presents and analyzes her approach to composition practice through intertextuality. Drawing on previous research in literary and musical studies, she aims to identify and/or define the types of intertextuality that she uses in her compositional practice, and their interaction within compositions. She also investigates, in which ways different musical and literary texts can mutually influence and enhance each other, as well as how these forms of intertextuality function in specific performance settings. Finally, the author contemplates on the question how intertextual elements might mediate in translating the author’s intentions to the audience, at least from the perspective of the composer. After a quick overview of ten of Astar’s musical works, making use of intertextuality as a composition strategy, the study focuses on a detailed analysis of two pieces, Escape and The Checkered Flag Villanelle, that rely upon contrasting ways of building cross-textual relationships. The analysis utilizes, among others, the topologies found in the works by Genette, Burkholder and Kawamoto. The author also makes an attempt at extending the existing terminology by suggesting such new terms as concept borrowing, interpermeating intertextuality, imposed intertextuality, transverbal prosodization and some other. This terminology is applied in the work to describe the types of cross-textual strategies used in Astar’s classical compositions that do not appear to be covered by any of the aforementioned topologies. The work also offers a first-person perspective at a close collaboration of a composer and a poet, where the result is a variety of artistic works, all of which employ multi-layered intertextuality and an intermedial approach.

    Orkestrering i fokus: En studie i orkestreringstekniker och arrangering2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Syftet med detta examensarbete är att fördjupa mig i hur Ravel har orkestrerat sitt verk Bolero och tillämpa hans orkestreringstekniker i egna kompositioner och orkestreringar. Orkestreringen i Bolero har alltid tilltalat mig och orkestrering som hantverk är en viktig kunskap för en kompositör att bemästra. För att bli bättre inom hantverket orkestrering och bygga ut min verktygslåda med orkestreringstekniker valdes just detta verk av Ravel.

    För att uppnå syftet har orkestreringen i Bolero analyserats, varje repetitionssiffra för sig och delats upp i tre olika musikaliska beståndsdelar, melodi, rytm och den harmoniska bakgrunden. För att undersöka om det var möjligt att tillämpa Ravels orkestreringstekniker av Bolero i mina egna kompositioner och orkestreringar så arrangerade jag två pianosatser som jag tidigare komponerat. Arrangemanget är i stil med Bolero och använder sig av samma instrumentering, orkestrering och tekniker som Ravel gör i sitt verk Bolero. Studien resulterade i fem orkestreringstekniker, större kunskap inom hantverket orkestrering och ett arrangemang för orkester av två egen skrivna pianosatser.

    Mixing for in-ear monitors: understanding the work of monitor mixing engineers2022Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The monitor mixing engineer is a key function in a public music performance when in-ear monitoring (IEM) is utilized. This paper aims to expand our knowledge about monitor mixing in general and IEM mixing in particular by investigating monitor mixing engineers’ reasoning, decisions and actions. Four experienced monitor mixing engineers were interviewed on monitor mixing in general, IEM mixing and hearing health. Among the results are found that the engineers seek to create a fruitful working relationship with the performers. The engineers also describe what creates a functional mix and they show a high awareness of their responsibility for the comfort and well-being of the artist, both in a psychological sense as well as in providing sound levels that are not harmful.

    Historically Authentic Truths (the HAT trick): Facts, fancies and footnotes2021Inngår i: Music and Heritage: New Perspectives on Place-making and Sonic Identity / [ed] Liam Maloney; John Schofield, Taylor & Francis, 2021, 1, s. 183-193Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Footnotes, a composition written between 1983 and 1985 by a composer allegedly named William Brooks, was recorded between 2011 and 2018 by guitarist Stefan Östersjö and sound engineer Jez Wells, with the help of William Brooks, musicologist. It became evident to the three collaborators that the overall project required the construction of a set of different identities for each participant: guitar, guitarist; score, composer; hardware, engineer. This chapter traces the construction of, distinction between and eventual representation of those identities. It considers the extent to which a single entity – personality, place, artifact or historical event – can be regarded as a collection of irreconcilable differences, whether those differences can be constituted as a series of masks or persona and whether anything can truly be said to reside behind those masks.

    Ethics in Movement: Shaping and Being Shaped in Human-Drone Interaction2020Inngår i: CHI‘20: Proceedings ofthe 2020 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2020, artikkel-id 549Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    How is ethics shaped by the particularities of a design? Through a detailed video analysis, we explore how ethicality is shaped in interaction between a choreographer, a performer and a choir of five drones, performing together on the opera stage. We pinpoint how movements enabled by the human-drone assemblage may limit or liberate artistic expressions vis-à-vis the norms of operatic performance. From a somaesthetics perspective on ethics, we show how the process of crafting rich experiences together with drones can deepen sensory appreciation skills, leading to an increased understanding of underlying somatic drivers and imposed norms. Somatic awareness thereby enables a richer repertoire of movements, expanding the ability to freely choose how to act, and cultivating empathy towards others. This shifts our understanding of ethics in HCI as solely about abstract rules or policies 'out there' to also concern the specifics of how technology informs or dictates movement and experience.

    Röst och mimesis i kompositionsprocessen: Att söka sin inre röst i komponerandet av noterad musik2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In this bachelor thesis in the field of artistic research, the author’s aim was to gain practical and experience-based knowledge on how to access their inner voice in the process of composing notated contemporary music. The theoretical framework was obtained from theories on compositional craft, composers’ voice and a concept from the rhetoric, mimesis, was used as a model for the approach to creating composition exercises. The procedure of the bachelor thesis started with semi-structured interviews with four professional composers, who were asked about their compositional processes. Based on the results of the interviews, a composition exercise, called mimesis-exercise, was created for each of the interviewee, and then performed by the author. After each mimesis-exercise was finished, a reflective evaluation on the process was written. 

    A summary of each interview is presented in the implementation and detailed descriptions on how the compositional process was conducted for each of the four mimesis-exercises are presented in the results part. The artistic production of the bachelor thesis consists of five new pieces, each composed for one of the ensembles: SATB-choir, string ensemble, organ (two pieces), and solo trombone. The four research questions were answered through a thematic analysis and reflective texts.  

    The conclusions made during the process of the bachelor thesis was that the author experienced an enhanced understanding and connection to both the compositional process and the sounding material produced. The experience of composing, both the pieces which was part of the project, but especially those composed close after the thesis’s end, was more emotional and personal than the author experienced before the start of the bachelor thesis. The author reflected on how her development and discovering of her compositional voice was made through the procedure of the mimesis-exercises. The conclusive texts of the bachelor thesis add accounts for experience-based and personal perspectives to previous research on composer’s voice.

    Lost in interpretation: Re-mixing the master-apprentice relation in the music conservatoire2021Inngår i: Seismograf, ISSN 2245-4705, Vol. 26Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This polyphonic audio paper addresses the relation between master and apprentice in the music conservatoire, and gives voice to the central human and non-human agents in this context. We aim to explore the power structures that constitute a structural framework for these relations, with regard to the agency with which students shape their individual interpretations, and therefore also to the role of imitation in instrumental music teaching. Master classes have arguably been seen as the pinnacle of the master–apprentice tradition, and have had a central role within higher education in Western classical music. It has regularly been claimed that such classes are effective for student development (see Hanken, 2008; 2011; Hanken and Long, 2012; Hanken, 2015; 2016; 2017) although, until recently, research on master classes has been quite sparse (see Hanken, 2008; 2011).

    Results from a qualitative study of teaching and learning of musical interpretation in a master class setting—first articulated in the form of an ethnodrama (Holmgren, 2018; 2020; Nguyễn and Östersjö, 2020; Saldaña, 1998; 2003; 2005; 2011; Salvatore, 2018), written by Holmgren—constitutes the point of departure for the audio paper. Our staging of Holmgren’s ethnodrama as a Hörspiel constitutes an artistic research process, through dramatical and musical composition (Olofsson, 2018). The research process originated in sound, as well as in questions related to musical performance; ultimately, through the many layers of analysis and artistic production, the final outcomes are again manifest in sound. Originating in music education research, the study seeks a better understanding of how the dynamics between teacher, student and music institution can be better utilised in curriculum development. Hence, the audio paper, and the Hörspiel that it contains, constitutes a central result of the study (see further Holmgren, 2020) in artistic form as a sonic and multivocal artefact. We ultimately propose that the future for instrumental teaching in the conservatoire lies in the creation of situations that allow for sharing experiences of performative knowledge. Hereby, teacher and student can work together towards the goal of fostering an individual musician’s voice (Gorton and Östersjö, 2019), highlighting the importance of personal autonomy, situatedness, and an analytical awareness of institutional and societal power structures. Hence, the study points to perspectives that may contribute to curriculum development in higher music education, specifically with regard to instrumental music teaching.

    Cerro Rico: the co-production of a discursive voice in chamber music2020Inngår i: Music + Practice, E-ISSN 1893-9562, Vol. 7Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Centred around a video essay, this exposition aims to develop an understanding of subjectivity within a collaborative chamber music context. Drawing on the theory of situated cognition (see for example Brown, Collins, & Duguid, 1989) and the concept of subjective ‘voice’ in performance (Cumming, 2000), the presentation develops the model proposed by Gorton and Östersjö (2016 and 2019) in which a ‘discursive voice’ may emerge from the process of composer–performer collaboration.

    These ideas are explored through a study of the early rehearsals of David Gorton's composition ‘Cerro Rico’, for soprano violin and charango. This is a very slow piece, and while the two instrumentalists both operate at this extreme of the tempo spectrum, they do so guided by different conceptions, one metronomic and the other taxonomic, of how this should be notated; the charango player works with a very slow metronome mark of quaver = 15 while the violinist plays mostly in large note-values: breves, longs, and dotted longs. From these opposed positions, the performers find a shared understanding of time.

    Through an appraisal of video footage taken from the first rehearsals of ‘Cerro Rico’, it is argued that the malleable character of coordination, shaping, and timing that is afforded in performance by the extreme slowness of the piece creates the conditions for the emergence of a discursive voice, compounded from the contributions of the two performers and the composer. The ‘collaboration’ between composer and performers can be conceived as being situated within this discursive voice, manifested as a sense of shared ownership of the materials.

    Pop vs rock: A comparison study of managing sessions in the recording studio and the influences of genre2021Inngår i: Journal of Music, Technology and Education, ISSN 1752-7066, E-ISSN 1752-7074, Vol. 13, nr 2-3, s. 141-161Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examined the recording session management approaches of two music producers, Phil Harding and Greg Haver, to ascertain if and how their different approaches impact the outcomes of music production projects. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with each producer to gain insight into their approaches generally, and also, as a point of comparison, their work on the educational Gus Dudgeon Foundation/Joint Audio Media Education Support (GDF/JAMES) summer recording sessions specifically. Thematic analyses of the interviews revealed that the producers’ respective approaches are influenced by the genres in which each predominantly works. Harding, a pop producer, is very systematic. Haver, who is better known for his work in rock, uses an organic approach. Consequently, there were some clear differences in their decision making and organizational strategies at the GDF/JAMES sessions. The producers used different criteria to choose a project/artist. Each used distinctive approaches in pre-production (i.e. work on song arrangements and other technical musical decisions), production (recording) and mixing. Still, both produced pop recordings that largely conform to pop norms. Both recordings have similar pop arrangements and meet commercial standards. Findings provide new understanding of session management techniques that can benefit both music production education and practitioners.

    Global Hyperorgan: a platform for telematic musicking and research2021Inngår i: NIME 2021, The International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression (NIME) , 2021Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The Global Hyperorgan is an intercontinental, creative space for acoustic musicking. Existing pipe organs around the world are networked for real-time, geographicallydistant performance, with performers utilizing instruments and other input devices to collaborate musically through the voices of the pipes in each location. A pilot study was carried out in January 2021, connecting two large pipe organs in Piteå, Sweden, and Amsterdam, the Netherlands. A quartet of performers tested the Global Hyperorgan’s capacities for telematic musicking through a series of pieces. The concept of modularity is useful when considering the artistic challenges and possibilities of the Global Hyperorgan. We observe how the modular system utilized in the pilot study afforded multiple experiences of shared instrumentality from which new, synthetic voices emerge. As a long-term technological, artistic and social research project, the Global Hyperorgan offers a platform for exploring technology, agency, voice, and intersubjectivity in hyper-acoustic telematic musicking.

    Companion Species Television: dog and human experiences of DOGTV2021Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Donna Haraway writes in her essay The Companion Species Manifesto – from her own experience with domestic dogs – that “they are not here just to think with” but also someone to live with, and she defines them as companion species and “partners in crime of human evolution” (Haraway, 2003, p. 5). Humans live with dogs, and in Sweden one of seven households are estimated to have a dog in the home environment (Novus, 2017). This study, with an interdisciplinary approach, takes the meaning of Haraway ́s concept of “significant others” – namely a partner in an intimate relation and in this case also different kin - in consideration and will try to understand the concept in relation to media studies.The focus is on studying humans and domestic dogs as partners of crime in the experience of programs on the website DogTV (DogTV, 2021). DogTV have programs directed to dogs and with the help of a team of scientists on animal behavior they present sounds to dogs for stimulation, relaxation and exposure of doorbells and car rides. The site also has audiovisual programs directed to dog people. 

    Different scholars have been concerned with animals and media with the aim of trying to break the anthropocentric approach in media studies. (Almiron, Cole & Freeman, 2016) The emerging research field of critical animal and media studies are mainly concerned with the oppression of domestic animals in for example the food industry: how domestic species are represented in media: how the subject can be theorized: and the responsibility and advocacy for animals in relation to different media (Merskin, 2016: Nibert, 2016: Dunayer, 2016: Freeman: 2016). Previous studies have also been concerned with representations of mostly wild animals in audiovisual media, and how language defines meaning also from an anthropomorphic perspective (Ganetz, 2012: Malmoud 2012: Chris 2006). Studies of dogs and media have been oriented around the representation of the “good dog” as in the films of Lassie: the representation of the violent critter as in the movie Cujo based on a novel by writer Stephen King: representations in reality tv shows of dangerous dogs: and the interaction between dogs and humans in a British tv program which also shows one of the human characters journey to become “more dog”, namely more joyful and less repressed by human social conventions (Cudworth & Jensen, 2016).  

    The division between human-animal is something that has been taken for granted for centuries are something deeply rooted in western thought based on religious and Aristotelian philosophy. This thought is based on how humans are unique to animals, in their consciousness and intrinsic value. Humans is understood to have a more symbolic language, uses tools and in a religious sense is seen as God ́s creation. I recent years these questions have started to be problematized, because of animal behavioral science shows that animals have capacities and performances that previously only has been attributed to humans. In a basic sense the question about if animals have feelings have led to the exploitation of animals in for example the food industry and have also fostered a view of animals as a creature with less value, in the same sense that slaves were looked upon in the American society. Creatures with lower value because they were seen av more primitive, less intelligent, and not capable of sensing feelings as “the white man” (Strindlund, 2014). 

    In the figure of the cyborg Donna Haraway problematize the boundaries that are set between man-women, human-animal, and humans- machine. She conceptualizes the human-animal boundaries by using the figure of companion species, but when it comes to living together, to evolve together and to have “embodied cross-species sociality” both figures can be useful to understand the relationship between animal-human from a critical perspective and to start thinking of new ontologies in current life worlds. “These figures are hardly polar opposites. Cyborgs and companion species each brings together the human and non-human, the organic and the technological, carbon and silicon, freedom and structure, history and myth, the rich and the poor, the state and the subject, diversity and depletion, modernity and postmodernity, and nature and culture in unexpected ways” (Haraway 2003:4) 

    Haraway writes “bestiality has a new status in marriage exchange” (Haraway 2008), and our domestic dogs now have the same care as humans in animal hospitals and the relationship between human-dogs are sometimes seen as more authentic emotionally than with humans. Dog owners are calling themselves for example “pup mom” or “dog mom”, with connotations that the bondbetween dog and human are almost seen as thatequivalent to the bond between a mother and a child. InHaraway’s view humans and animals are historicallylinked in dynamic relationships rather than just in term ofhow humans domesticate animals, and in this sense onecan start to think about animals less in terms of blood butmore in terms of kinship or affinity in what she calls“significant otherness” (Haraway 2003:7) For example,on the web page Barkpost a list of how to tell if your dogis your significant other is presented: you go to bed at thesame time, share common interests, you trust each other,you greet each other with affection and walk side by side (Fantegrossi, 2015). It is almost like a relationship with a dog is more affectionate than the relationship with another human. 

    According to Haraway one must though accept dogs with their otherness, and “that all ethical relating within or between species is knit from the silk-strong thread of ongoing alertness to otherness-in-relation” (Haraway 2003:50). The relationship between dogs and humans are a language game, and the relationships is based on language that is not restricted to vocal language. The focus not only on verbal language opens us to be alert to the otherness in the relationship and to study other forms of language of communication: for example, head gestures, nose movements, posture, and sounds. Many domestic dogs are often part of a family and home environment and in that sense also part of media experiences. Humans have dogs lying beside them when they watch their favorite tv series. Dogs barks to sounds on television, such as doorbells ringing and animal sounds, or interrupts the media experience of human when they come to make contact. The two species are part of a material-semiotic relationship, where one need not to be a human to contribute to the semiotic production. The home is supposed to be a place where one finds refuge, rest and satisfaction, seclusion of the world and an environment free of noise of the outside world (LaBelle, 2019). 

    “/.../ research in the meaning of home “repeatedly throws up the same basic terms; privacy, security, family, intimacy, comfort and control” (Morley 2000:24) 

    The home is, however, not only a physical place but also a place where the local meet the global and were media of various kinds gets distant events into the home via sounds and visual representation (Morley, 2000). TV audiences in a home or domestic context has been a concern for David Morley who in his work Family Television presented a study of how TV materials were interpreted within families and how TV is used in different families and forming gender roles (Morley, 1986). But what about if one introduces dogs as a member of the family as a material-semiotic actor that is engaged in entertainment on TV? Dogs in a home environment can be studied as pet that form “embodied cross-species sociality” with humans in relation to media experiences, in media that both meet the needs of the human and the dog. The consumption of television is often now understood as in flux, for example mobile technologies have changes our sense of locality and movement. Home can also be problematized in relation to homelessness, exile, and rootlessness. Humans have a way of consuming television that blurs the boundaries between home and the outside, where one can use TV in different settings and information flows on a global scale (Morley, 2000:9). Dogs on the other hand does not have the sense that things happen far way but are more concerned about the local environment. The concept of companion species can thus also be a way to think about the dimension of the global-local in a domestic media environment based on television. 

    Outline of a study The focus of this study is to understand how humans and domestic dogs experience DogTV in a home environment via sound as companion species. The current theories of media and the home environment are mainly anthropocentric, and the idea of this study is to problematize domestic dogs in relation to the theoretical understanding of the home environment and media experiences, and to outline an interdisciplinary method for conducting research on media experiences 

    DogTV claims to have growing audience (30million) worldwide and communicates thatthey have a desire to better understand whatdogs watch, but the channel also haveprograms for dog people. (DogTV, 2021)Given that many dogs are home alone when the humans are at work etc., there are studies within DCI (Dog-Computer-Interaction), a sub-field of ACI (Animal-Computer-Interaction), that are interested in finding solutions for entertaining dogs when the humans are not at home and the dog is at risk of being under-stimulated and under-exercised (Miklosi, 2014: Hirskyj- Douglas, Reed & Cassidy 2017). The interest in this study of companion species is instead the interaction between dogs and humans in in experiencing DogTV in “embodied cross- species sociality” and not to understand how dogs interact and responds to media content as in DCI. The aim of the study is to incorporate dogs in media experience and to understand 1) What are the sounds designed for dogs and 2) how do humans understand the interaction of their dog with DogTV?. 

    To try to understand these questions as a first step sounds are of interests, and in analyzing sounds one can use knowledge from the field of soundscape studies. A soundscape consists of objects heard and not objects seen. The concept was introduced by Raymond Schafer to better understand the sounds of an acoustic environment, improve humans hearing capabilities and to fight noise pollution in modern society. According to Schafer sounds can be understood in three dimensions: audience, environment and the sound event that consists of three main features of keynote, sound signal and soundmark (Schafer, 1993). The keynote is background sounds that one is not always is aware of which are created by nature like wind, water, birds, insects, and animals. In urban environments traffic has become a background sound and a keynote. Sound signals consists of foreground sounds that we are more conscious about as humans, such as bells, whistles, horns, and sirens. The soundmark is a sound that refer to a community sound which is unique or possesses qualities which make it specially regarded or noticed by the people in that community, such as Big Ben in London and the Islamic muezzin. To try to understand the experience of dog and human interaction one must take in consideration that dogs have greater sound sensitivity and can hear lower intensity sounds. Dogs have a sensitivity rate between 67-45.000 hz as compared to 64- 23.000 Hz for humans (Strain, 2016). So, one way of trying to understand the experience of DogTV with this in consideration is to analyze the sound features developed by Schafer in different programs on DogTV, such as keynotes, sound signals and soundmarks and try to understand the soundscapes for dogs that are communicated. Another question is what type of sounds the human experience that dogs listen to with interests seen in for example gestures and sounds. To understand the second question, the aim is to conduct interviews with dog people that have watched DogTV with their furry friends, concentrating on the themes like embodied cross-species sociality, the otherness of the dog, the dog as a materialist-semiotic actor in media experience.

    Swedish Sápmi News, Environment and Sense of Place2021Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Those who are affected by changes in the environment often live in remote areas from the political center, which is often inhabited by indigenous people. Indigenous people have another sense of place and nature in relation to modern societies that focus on scientific knowledge and large-scale technological and economic systems. Modern societies also have an understanding of nature as separated from humans (Roosvall & Tegelberg, 2015). The deep knowledge of nature and the sense of place are among indigenous people inherited through generations and are lived experiences through a close connection to nature with strong ties to territories and natural resources. Northern parts of Sweden are inhabited by the Sápmi people, and their land use transcend the borders of nation-states, like Norway, Finland and Russia., Their cultures and locations are developed around a lifestyle based on fishing and reindeer herding, even thou Sápmi identity is not homogenous but rather multifaceted.(Markelin & Husband, 2013). Indigenous peoples are often “used” in mainstream media reporting to highlight the urgency of environmental change, while their political perspectives are largely ignored (Roosvall & Tegelberg, 2015). Other research has showed the centrality of national public service broadcast in providing the political and infrastructural context of indigenous media (Markelin & Husband, 2013). Swedish public service has a liability under law to cover perspectives of national and ethnical minorities in their own language, and the Sápmi people are one of these minorities. (Regeringsbeslut, Ku2019/02007/MD). Indigenous media are important in the political terrain, and public broadcast service is a forum for the Sápmi population when it comes to expressing political demands and identity. This study is focusing on Sápmi television news - Oddasat - broadcasted in Swedish public broadcast (SVT) from the Sápmi unit in Giron/Kiruna. The interest is to look at how indigenous Sápmi news in Sweden represents senses of place, place attachment and environmental change. In this perspective theories of senses of place are of interest, for example place attachment among indigenous people which can be understood as a very intimate relationship and a multidimensional phenomenon (Gaster, 1961). To understand sense of place different dimensions are addressed; language, relations, attitudes and world views that attaches people and place; socio-cultural and political dimensions; affective and behavioral components (Studley, 2012). Place attachment is integral to sense of place and literature emphasises place attachment in a context of group identities bound to a specific form of landscape or idealized ones; the link to local wisdom; cultural or environmental threats to identity and deterritorialization (Studley, 2012).  Preliminary results indicate that national boundaries are not basis of sense of place and attachment, but instead the Sápmi culture, education and the conservation of the cultural heritage spanning several countries is crucial. Environmental changes and threats are understood through the lens of indigenous inherited wisdom and deep knowledge of nature. The consequences of environmental change on the migrating reindeers is linked to the Sapmi nomadic understanding of nature.

    Dialogue Lost? Teaching Musical Interpretation of Western Classical Music in Higher Education2022Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this thesis is to contribute to a better understanding of musical interpretation in teaching and learning Western classical music from both a teacher’s and student’s perspective within the context of piano main instrument teaching in higher music education in Sweden. The following research questions were formulated to fulfil this aim: first, how do teachers and students understand musical interpretation as educational content?; second, how do teachers and students understand teaching and learning of musical interpretation?; third and finally, how could verbal and musical dialogues be used for improving teaching and learning of musical interpretation?

    The thesis employs an overarching hermeneutical framework and consists of three movements. Multiple forms of empirical material were created and collected to understand the complex phenomenon: semi-structured interviews (with and without stimulus) with teachers, students, and master class teacher; video and audio recordings of master class lessons and workshops; annotated scores; audio-recorded student performances and written instructions, written responses, and reflective one-minute papers. The empirical material was hermeneutically analysed and presented using poetical condensations, haiku formed poems, (auto)ethnodrama, and collaboratively negotiated student narratives.

    The results outline that musical interpretation is neither verbalised nor negotiated. Furthermore, the students are held responsible for developing or already having the skills and capacities required for autonomy and a personal, authentic artistic voice, described as the desired learning outcome. That the students find their education backwards-looking and not preparing for a professional career in music could at least partly be due to the instrumental lessons being mainly devoted to demonstration and imitation without argumentative support. Moreover, as the teachers’ capacity to verbalise and engage in dialogical practices seems to be situationally bound and requiring questions, the possibilities to, on an organisational level, empower students to initiate and enter such dialogues should be further studied.

    The created dialogical pedagogical situations, opening for musical and verbal collaboration, helped establish a shared understanding of musical interpretation and highlighted the difference between students’ intentions and performances. These situations offered collaborative explorations of what musical interpretation is, might be, and could be. I suggest that musical interpretation, including its philosophical and ethical aspects, is lifted as a general subject at a programme level, thus securing that it is dealt with adequately, not merely relying on individual teachers. Finally, methodological considerations and suggestions for further research are put forward.

    Empowering Piano Students of Western Classical Music: Challenging Teaching and Learning of Musical Interpretation in Higher Education2022Inngår i: Music Education Research, ISSN 1461-3808, E-ISSN 1469-9893, Vol. 24, nr 5, s. 574-587Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study aimed to empower piano students and explore their understandings of how teaching and learning of musical interpretation of Western classical music could be developed to foster autonomy and a personal, authentic artistic voice. Two research questions were formulated: How have students experienced teaching and learning of musical interpretation? How do students envision a meaningful organisation of such teaching and learning? The empirical material, created during a participatory action research project with 4 piano students within an artistic bachelor program, was hermeneutically analysed, and narratives were created and twice negotiated with the students. Their education was described as backwards-looking and not preparing for autonomous learning and musicianship. In contrast, a meaningful organisation was envisioned as collaborative, dialogical, characterised by openness, humility, honesty, and mutual understanding where musical interpretation is viewed as a complex, ongoing, open-ended process, allowing for multiple, incompatible views, breaking from the master–apprentice model and the current restrictive ideology.

    Spectromorphological Reductions: Exploring and developing approaches for sound-based notation of live electronics2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 poäng / 30 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In this master’s thesis, a sound-based notation system is explored and developed in the composition and performance of a musical work for live electronics. My approach builds on existing systems for electroacoustic music analysis, most notably Dennis Smalley’s (1997) theory of spectromorphology and the symbolic language of Lasse Thoresen & Andreas Hedman (2007) based on Pierre Schaeffer’s typo-morphology, as well as Mattias Sköld’s (2023) adaptation of this system for composition and transcription (Sound Notation). 

    By separating the compositional processes from the interpretational process in the creation of a mixed work for live electronics and acoustic instruments, the notation could be explored as an isolated activity in the writing of sound objects, later realized in a studio environment in the form playable instrument patches. This resulted in two performances of the piece Sonic Mechanics (2022) where the author performed the electronics part together with musicians from the ensembles Norrbotten NEO in Piteå (Sweden) and Ensemble mise-en in NYC (USA). 

    The thesis shows how symbolic notation does not need to be dismissed in live electronic performance, but that a sound-based score can complement the compositional and interpretational processes of instrument design and improvisation. The project thus demonstrates the plausibility of composing electronic music using a reduced sound- based notation system (spectromorphological reduction) and provides an example of how a sound-based score can be executed by an electronic performer, as well as investigating the affordances that this approach has for both the compositional and interpretational process. For composition, the affordances of sound-based notation are that it becomes a technology for thinking about sound and musical structures themselves, without interaction with audio technology. For performance, this approach enables different interpretations for other electronic instruments and setups.

    "Det finns ej make!": Om Emil Sjögren och orgeln2022Inngår i: Emil Sjögren – en vägvisare / [ed] Anders Edling, Erik Wallrup, Möklinta: Gidlunds förlag, 2022, s. 77-101Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The chapter offers a broad picture of the composer Emil Sjögren’s  (1853–1918) lifelong relationship with the organ. It argues that the organ was Sjögren’s main instrument as a performer, although his output of organ music as a composer is relatively small. Sjögren had studied in Berlin with Carl August Haupt (organ) and Friedrich Kiel (composition and counterpoint) and was a noted interpreter of J.S. Bach’s works. In later years, however, his fame as an organist rested exclusively on his improvisations in connection with church services, which were regarded as unique and attracted large audiences. The article includes separate sections on the Stockholm organs from various epochs that Sjögren played, as well as discussions on his main organ compositions, including the three preludes and fugues and Legender, perhaps the first collection of organ pieces in all keys. His influence on the following "Stockholm school" of organist-composers is also briefly outlined.

    På väg mot en perfekt symbios?: Om gregoriansk sång och svenskspråkig sjungen tidegärd under 1900-talet2021Inngår i: Årsbok för svenskt gudstjänstliv, ISSN 0280-9133, Vol. 96, s. 53-96Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The study dels with different approaches to the use of Gregorian chant with Swedish texts in the Divine Office, from the 1920s onward, with particular focus on psalmody. In 1924, the clergymen Arthur Adell and Knut Peters published Evangelisk tidegärd, the first modern Swedish-language service order for the Office using exclusively Gregorian melodies. The official Vesperale and Psalterium of 1925, using mainly Gregorian melodies, was severely criticized by Peters, who, together with Adell, sought to establish principles for the use of Swedish texts to Gregorian psalmody.

    How such principles ought to be formulated and applied was discussed intermittently in the following decades. While all prticipants in these debates agreed that using Gregorian chant to Swedish texts entailed special difficulties, opinions on how to handle these problems varied widely, and, especially from the 1980s, it was questioned whether the Swedish language was at all suitable for Gregorian chant. The Laurentius Petri Society, founded by Adell and Peters, maintained that original Gregorian melodies could – and should – be used, whereas the Roman-Catholic diocese in Sweden advocated a modified psalmody, albeit still based on the traditional psalm tones. These differences, reflected in the respective editions, still perist as different ideals and principles, although a converging tendency may be observed in recent years.

    Becoming a pianist-composer: An exploration of performance interpretation through improvisation and composition2023Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master of Fine Arts (Two Years)), 80 poäng / 120 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis defines some of the traditional use of composition and improvisation during the 18th and 19th centuries and the view of performance interpretation by some of the most considerable pianist composers of that time and scholars of our time. The purpose of my artistic research is to adapt those traditions today with a modern approach. Thus, it is an extension of the romantic piano traditions.

    The methods used for this research are based on two concepts. The first aims to explore the possibilities within improvisation by using the score to improvise over. The second aims to use composition as a tool to build and relate to the process of how improvisation and interpretation functions - thus gaining a greater understanding of the pianist-composers of the 18th and 19th centuries. The overall aim is to develop my individual pianistic voice. Mental training and visualization are a key to achieving this. Improvisations over my own compositions have been important when exploring possibilities for developing the imaginative and creative processes as an improviser. The traits of inspiration that comes from the standard repertoire into my own music have been an interesting study case.

    The scope of this thesis spans from collected books, articles, and essays etc. of eyewitnesses of among others the great romantic pianist-composers and scholars of our time who shed light on the presented subjects of the thesis. 

    The artistic results of this thesis can be divided into two groups. The first group concerns the use of music theory, systematized schemes, tools for composition, improvisation, and the skills of performance interpretation. The second group are strongly linked to my religious beliefs, strong imagination, creativeness, and complex emotional processes that results in outward personal expressions when performing, creating, or being exposed to music. 

    How would a modern 18th and 19th pianist-composer adapt to and sound in today’s music societies and what practices would follow? How would our music society look today and what would our generation of piano students know with the adaptation of serious study and understanding of the fundamental building blocks of improvisation and composition? How would the music genres develop if piano students started to make music instead of only interpreting it?

    To Understand the Text of a Foreign Art Song: Comparing performances on three levels of preparation to understand two art songs' texts in French and English2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis is an autobiographical study of a classical singing student who wished to investigate the connection between understanding the meaning of the text in an art song and her musical/dramatic interpretation of it. Classical singing students study songs and arias in French, German, Italian and other European languages on a regular basis, but they do not necessarily speak or understand all of them. How can a singer relate to the text of the songs they are performing if they do not know the language of them? In this study I learned two art songs, one in French and one in English, divided the textual studies into three 'levels of understanding', made recordings for each level, compared the results and reflected upon my interpretations of each song. The purpose was partly to develop my own general understanding between text and interpretation as an artist, and partly as a showcase for other singing students how important it is to translate and by extension relate to the texts of all the songs we are singing, not only the ones in our mother tongue or fluent languages.

    Context-Aware Intelligent Mixing Systems2021Inngår i: Journal of The Audio Engineering Society, ISSN 1549-4950, Vol. 69, nr 3, s. 128-141Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Intelligent Mixing Systems (IMS) are rapidly becoming integrated into music mixing and production workflows. The intelligences of a human mixer and IMS can be distinguished by their abilities to comprehend, assess, and appreciate context. Humans will factor context into decisions, particularly concerning the use and application of technologies. The utility of an IMS depends on both its affordances and the situation in which it is to be used. The appropriate use for conventional purposes, or its utility for misappropriation, is determined by the context. This study considers how context impacts mixing decisions and the use of technology, focusing on how the mixer’s understanding of context can inform the use of IMS, and how the use of IMS can aid in informing a mixer of different contexts.

    Club Inégales, Curation, and Processes of Public Musicology2023Inngår i: The Routledge Companion to Applied Musicology / [ed] Chris Dromey, Taylor and Francis , 2023, 1, s. 98-107Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter offers a cultural and contextual overview of a series of events curated at London's Club Inegales in 2019. It offers applied definitions of public engagement, accessibility, and public musicology in the context of curating such events, with a specific focus on artist-audience interaction through pre-concert panel discussions and artist question-and-answer sessions. The chapter then outlines the nature of the events and their aims, before reflecting on their creation and reception. Beyond chronicling the processes of creating such a series, it also comments on the connections, real and latent, between contemporary music-making and musicology. Although the reach and cultural capital of musical events such as “Women's Voices” tend to be proportional to their size, all such events have the power to challenge and influence musical practice from the perspective of musicians and concertgoers alike. Musicology is an active, applied practice through which to reflect, advocate, and enact change in the music industries and in society at large.

    Music speaks: The role of emotional expression in music for sci-fi fantasy films2022Inngår i: Intersemiotic Perspectives on Emotions: Translating across Signs, Bodies and Values / [ed] Susan Petrilli, Meng Ji, Taylor and Francis , 2022, 1, s. 332-348Kapittel i bok, del av antologi (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores how music expresses emotions by illustrating how music is able to translate the content of texts, narratives and cultures. In particular, in order to demonstrate how music can express emotion, it situates how music means and how it might “speak” to its listener (Albright 2009). If meaning is “emergent” (Cook 2001) in the experience of the sound, then what supplementary role does music play within expressing emotions within the context of film? Music is used in a variety of ways in film, often to speak on behalf of a character or culture, when words are not sufficient. It is a vital component of the film media, and is often accredited as contributing the emotional heart to the film. Whereas language in film can be dubbed or subtitled, the music remains, projecting its message across cultural boundaries. If music is able to express emotion, then it has an emotive response and significant impact on the narrative of a film and its spectator. Can music make us “shiver when listening to Vivaldi’s Winter concerto from the Four Seasons?" (Chanan, in Minors 2013). In illustrating music’s emotional capacity, this chapter takes a model of expressive potential from popular music studies (Moore 2016), which charts the four relational dimensions (intimate space, private space, social space, public space) which enable the listener to interpret meaning from nonverbal gestures. Two main examples drawn from Sci fi/fantasy films show how music contributes to the expression of emotions. Two contemporary fantasy movies with newly composed music are: The Shape of Water (2017) with music by Alexandre Desplat and Arrival (2016) with music by Jóhann Jóhannsson.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on the concepts that have driven the development of Artistic Research in the Nordic countries. Acknowledging, like other regional perspectives, that there are many differences between countries and programmes within them, the chapter aims to bring out key issues informing Artistic Research. In particular, it sheds light on the disposition to include the quality of the arts practice as one criterion in research assessment to meet a “dual requirement.” The chapter also reflects on the various relations of artists with the arts and science worlds and with an institutionalized academy. It concludes that the next challenge in the Nordic countries is a consideration of how art, and artistic research outcomes, might have social and political impact.

    Walking in the footprints of giants: A study about the art of vocal improvising and phrasing in jazz music2022Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    With the knowledge from my past experiences of education in music and professional experience of performing jazz vocally, I have always been interested in how I can challenge my role as a vocalist in a jazz ensemble. When studying singing at Complete Vocal Institute in Copenhagen, I gained large perceptions regarding my voice and my creative flow within the music. These new perspectives made me discover what I was capable of achieving with my voice, which I rarely see jazz vocalists do. I find it interesting to analyse what other jazz musicians do when they create, to be perceived as free and undemanding but still very advanced musically and captivating for the listeners.

    Another reason why I wanted to shed some light on this topic is that I often hear other jazz students question whether we who are born in Scandinavia really are able to reach the same level of expression and improvisational flow as American jazz musicians.These doubts trigger me, and make me want to prove that everyone can accomplish any kind of expression if we only have the right tools for it. And there is still this thought in my mind when I see musicians such as saxophonists, guitarists, and pianists, among others, get inspired by each other and try other people’s ideas, why I almost never see the same playfulness and thirst for musical knowledge in singers? I wonder in my mind: Why?

    Dreaming of new musical interaction–the interactive music in the project Dream2024Inngår i: International Journal of Performance Arts and Digital Media, ISSN 1479-4713, E-ISSN 2040-0934Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Dream was an online live performance in early 2021 and was a collaboration between several partners, among them Royal Shakespeare Company, the Philharmonia Orchestra, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Manchester International Festival and EPIC Games. The stated goal of Dream was to explore new ways of interacting with audiences while bridging the disciplines of theatre, music, video games and other forms of digital media. The musical goals were to enable a high level of musical interactivity while at the same time coupling that with the use of high-quality recorded orchestral music. This article is not a study of the Dream project as a whole, but focuses on the interactive music that was generated in realtime by the actors and powered by Reactional Music. Apart from briefly discussing the technology itself, this article will describe and analyse some of the working processes involved in composing interactive music, as well as discuss some of the future implications of the use of technology from the video game industry in new areas such as live performances and audience interaction. The aim of this is to see if it’s possible to envision what kind of new artistic output that can come from these new technological environments.

    Building Timbre Discrimination and Critical Listening Skills in Classical and CCM Singing Students2022Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Singing teachers often recommend critical listening activities to their students, both to expose them to great performances by various singing artists and thereby set standards and provide references to evaluate their own work in practice sessions, singing lessons, and performances. However, inexperienced students often admit that they do not truly understand what they are supposed to be listening for in these recordings, falling back on pre-existing aesthetic preferences to judge the quality of the performances rather than considering and detecting perceptual information that can be connected to the physiological, acoustical, and musical characteristics of the performers and their artistic interpretations. Using the principles of “technical ear training” from sound engineering education (e.g. Corey & Benson, 2016, p. 3) that seek to strengthen critical listening skills, two university singing programs (Coastal Carolina Univerisity/USA and Musikhögskolan i Piteå/Sweden) adopted a listening activity to improve timbre discrimination skills in classical and CCM singing students. 

    In a procedure developed with project advisor, M. Nyssim Lefford, Ph.D, M.S. (specialist in music production, music cognition, and auditory perception), each subject selected a short excerpt from a recording of a favorite singing artist with a similar voice type to their own and uploaded it into a program that allows the application of frequency filters. The excerpt was first played in its original form, followed by a series of repetitions using different combinations of filters applied to various frequency bands selected by the researchers to isolate important perceptual features of the singer’s voice and interpretational choices. This procedure was repeated two subsequent times with new student-selected recordings. Students wrote reflections after each session guided by general questions from the researchers. Results will be discussed and compared between the two subject groups along with implications for singing pedagogy and curricula and suggestions for future work.

    Live Coding the Global Hyperorgan: The Paragraph environment in the indeterminate place2023Inngår i: Organised Sound, ISSN 1355-7718, E-ISSN 1469-8153, Vol. 28, nr 2, s. 206-217Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article presents several scenarios in which a live coding environment called Paragraph was utilised to telematically play networked and geographically distributed hyperorgans. Situated within the framework of the Global Hyperorgan project, the TCP/Indeterminate Place Quartet have explored the affordances of the organ network through the concept of Tele-Copresence. By outsourcing certain dimensions of the parameter space of the Paragraph language to other members of the quartet, a shared instrumentality is enabled, where the organs are collaboratively controlled by means of this system. Rooted in a personal composer-performer practice and studied from the perspective of the live coder, the Paragraph system, adapted to the TCP/Indeterminate Place environment, can be understood as a modular system of human and non-human agents, into which the other musicians are patched. The distributed parameter space utilised, thus resembles a shared cantus firmus, a foundational, but dynamically changing, ecology for the live coder to play within.

    Group Voice Instruction Strategies in University Settings: A Collective Case Study2022Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Many university music and theatre programs use group voice classes to train students of various majors (musical theatre, voice performance, music education, music therapy). Studies in other fields have examined the effects of both small and large group instruction on learning outcomes and found that group instruction facilitated both direct and indirect learning, helped foster a supportive learning environment, and elicited more student engagement and peer-to-peer feedback (e.g., Cho et al., 2016). Therefore, one might conjecture that group voice classes could be used to effectively supplement one-to-one voice lessons. Few studies in voice pedagogy have examined the effects of group voice training on voice performance outcomes; however, Clayne Robison, professor emeritus at Brigham Young University, found group voice instruction led to a ten-fold increase in faculty teaching efficiency, as group voice instruction was more effective (students improved three times faster than those enrolled only in private instruction) and more efficient in terms of faculty teaching load.

    The effectiveness and efficiency of group voice instruction will naturally depend on the teaching methods employed. The purpose of this collective case study was to explore the effects of various group voice instructional methods on student learning, engagement, and singing voice skill acquisition outcomes in university settings (N = 2) differing in terms of geography (Sweden and the USA) and primary singing style (classical and musical theatre). Results will be discussed in terms of the most effective teaching strategies for group voice instruction, potential differences in group teaching methodology informed by geography and primary singing style, and how these findings might impact the design of university program voice curricula in the future.

    Listening and Mediation: Of Agency and Performative Responsivity in Ecological Sound Art Practices2022Inngår i: Phenomenology & Practice, E-ISSN 1913-4711, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 115-136Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This article approaches listening practices and the role of technological mediation within ecological sound art, building on findings through the artistic research practicesof the two authors. Through documentation of the authors’ ecological sound art practices of aeolian guitar performance, curation, composition, performance on found objects and field recording, we argue that phenomenological variation is inherent to the use of technology across all these forms of performative responsivity, as well as in the analytical forms of listening enacted through stimulated recall and micro-phenomenology. By unpacking the agencies at play in ecological sound art, we discuss how these artistic practices afford “unexpected ways” (Arteaga, 2017, p. 25) to knowledge. The article thus attempts to provide insight into human and non-human agencies at play in phenomenological approaches to ecological sound art and technological mediation, activated through listening.

    Audibility & Preference of DA Overload Associated with True Peak: Investigation of claims made against overload prevention2023Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    The conversion of audio from the digital to analog domain has the potential to result in distortion due to converter overload. This occurs because some peaks in the signal cannot be defined digitally and only become problematic during the conversion into the analog domain, exceeding the level that can be represented by the converter, causing it to overload. Although True Peak limiting and metering can prevent and monitor this issue, some professional mastering engineers choose not to do so. The study tested claims made against overload prevention, including the adequacy of headroom in modern D/A converters and the inaudibility of the distortion caused by overload. Preference was also added to the audibility claim. Measurements show that there is not enough headroom in modern D/A converters to avoid overload, but the distortion created by overload is generally inaudible in an uncompressed WAVE format hard rock song. Additionally, there is no clear preference. The measurements found that overload only occurs when the device's volume is raised to its maximum output.

    Variation Process in G. A. Frescobaldi's Cento partite sopra passacagli (1637)2022Inngår i: Music Theory and Analysis (MTA), ISSN 2295-5917, E-ISSN 2295-5925, Vol. 9, nr 2, s. 222-250Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Cento partite sopra passacaglia (1637), the longest keyboard work by Girolamo Frescobaldi (1583–1643), consisting of over 100 tonic-dominant harmonic cycles, exhibits the composer's expansive conception of the art of variation. This article demonstrates that the overarching formal structure in Cento partite is delineated by interconnected variation processes involving the relative stability/instability of the parameters of genre (passacaglia, ciacona, and corrente) and key (motion away from and returning to the original key of D minor). These large-scale variation processes relate to and affect rhythmic and motivic content and variation on the local (variation-to-variation) level.

    Using rhythm for rehabilitation: the acceptability of a novel haptic cueing device in extended stroke rehabilitation2022Inngår i: Journal of Enabling Technologies (JET), ISSN 2398-6263, E-ISSN 2398-6271, Vol. 16, nr 4, s. 290-301Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose

    Restoration of walking ability is a key goal to both stroke survivors and their therapists. However, the intensity and duration of rehabilitation available after stroke can be limited by service constraints, despite the potential for improvement which could reduce health service demands in the long run. The purpose of this paper is to present qualitative findings from a study that explored the acceptability of a haptic device aimed at improving walking as part of an extended intervention in stroke rehabilitation.

    Design/methodology/approach

    Pre-trial focus groups and post-trial interviews to assess the acceptability of Haptic Bracelets were undertaken with seven stroke survivors.

    Findings

    Five themes were identified as impacting on the acceptability of the Haptic Bracelet: potential for improving quality of life; relationships with technology; important features; concerns; response to trial and concentration. Participants were interested in the haptic bracelet and hoped it would provide them with more confidence making them: feel safer when walking; have greater ability to take bigger strides rather than little steps; a way to combat mistakes participants reported making due to tiredness and reduced pain in knees and hips.

    Originality/value

    Haptic Bracelets are an innovative development in the field of rhythmic cueing and stroke rehabilitation. The haptic bracelets also overcome problems encountered with established audio-based cueing, as their use is not affected by external environmental noise.

    Networking concert halls, musicians, and interactive textiles: Interwoven Sound Spaces2024Inngår i: Digital Creativity, ISSN 1462-6268, E-ISSN 1744-3806Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Interwoven Sound Spaces is an interdisciplinary project which brought together telematic music performance, interactive textiles, interaction design, and artistic research. A team of researchers collaborated with two professional contemporary music ensembles based in Berlin, Germany, and Piteå, Sweden, and four composers, with the aim of creating a telematic distributed concert taking place simultaneously in two concert halls and online. Central to the project was the development of interactive textiles capable of sensing the musicians’ movements while playing acoustic instruments, and generating data the composers used in their works. Musicians, instruments, textiles, sounds, halls, and data formed a network of entities and agencies that was reconfigured for each piece, showing how networked music practice enables distinctive musicking techniques. We describe each part of the project and report on a research interview conducted with one of the composers for the purpose of analysing the creative approaches she adopted for composing her piece.

    Abstract [en]

    This chapter explores three systems for mapping embodied gesture, acquired with electromyography and motion sensing, to sound synthesis. A pilot study using granular synthesis is presented, followed by studies employing corpus-based concatenative synthesis, where small sound units are organized by derived timbral features. We use interactive machine learning in a mapping-by-demonstration paradigm to create regression models that map high-dimensional gestural data to timbral data without dimensionality reduction in three distinct workflows. First, by directly associating individual sound units and static poses (anchor points) in static regression. Second, in whole regression a sound tracing method leverages our intuitive associations between time-varying sound and embodied movement. Third, we extend interactive machine learning through the use of artificial agents and reinforcement learning in an assisted interactive machine learning workflow. We discuss the benefits of organizing the sound corpus using self-organizing maps to address corpus sparseness, and the potential of regression-based mapping at different points in a musical workflow: gesture design, sound design, and mapping design. These systems support expressive performance by creating gesture-timbre spaces that maximize sonic diversity while maintaining coherence, enabling reliable reproduction of target sounds as well as improvisatory exploration of a sonic corpus. They have been made available to the research community, and have been used by the authors in concert performance.

    A Saami Requiem: Gunnar Idenstam and Ola Stinnebom2022Kunstnerisk output (Ogranskad)
    Abstract [en]

    A Saami Requiem is an extraordinary meeting-place of musical cultures – western classical, Sámi yoik, Nordic folk-dance, electric rock, blues, improv and more. It takes the form of a journey to Saajva, the Kingdom of Death in Sámi religious practice. With it the Swedish organist Gunnar Idenstam and Sámi artist Ola Stinnerbom provide a parallel to the Christian Requiem, with Ola Stinnerbom as Noite, the shaman who acts as guide to the Kingdom of Death – and back to this life, celebrated in the uplifting closing hymn. Some of the percussion sounds are sampled from traditional Sámi drums made by Ola Stinnerbom after ancient models; the electric guitars provide a link to rock groups like Deep Purple and King Crimson; and Gunnar Idenstam’s unmistakable style marries the French organ tradition with the alluring world of Swedish folk-music.

    Aeolian Duo at Edsviken2021Kunstnerisk output (Granskad)
    Abstract [en]

    These site-specific improvisations were recorded on a stony shore by Edsviken, north of Stockholm. Here there is water passing between stony shores and cliffs, in sight of apartments, villas, boat houses and Ulriksdals slott, a castle from the 17th century. The area is replete with the sounds of boat engines and the distant motorway, water both still and stirred, distant bells and all manner of land and water birds.  Stefan Östersjö plays aeolian guitar, an acoustic instrument, with strings extending out from the bridge, strung around trees on the site. The extended strings allow the performer to capture harmonics played by the wind, but also to control their pitch, and the number of strings playing. Katt Hernandez plays a violin with a low scordatura. She is focused on extending the sound and voice of that instrument through twin practices of playing with a varied array of improvising musicians from all walks of life, and of playing with animals, birds and all manner of inanimate entities in long walks across all the cities where she has lived. Here, she played to unite the sounds on the site with the sound worlds created by the aeolian guitar through the multi-faceted use of extended techniques drawn from those years of listening. These respective ecological sound-art practices seek a connectedness to place through immediate interaction with the elements at play on the site. Although a particular stillness characterized Edsviken on this day, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, the amount of activity is also striking. Not only do a few motor boats occasionally pass at a distance, but ducks sometimes dominate the soundscape, while the ever changing sonorities of the waves on the shore continue to ornament the shifting inflections of the duo improvisations. So they played at Edsviken one afternoon in July – the water, the motors, the birds and Stefan and Katt – on an outcropping of the stoney shore, between the forest and the water.
