Do a Solo! : An observational study of vocal improvisation within the jazz genre (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte är att studera min övningsprocess vid övandet av vokal jazzimprovisation med fokus på vilka resurser som används, hur de används och på vilka sätt de kan bidra till lärande. För att kunna genomföra studien dokumenterade jag min övning genom att videofilma och skriva loggbok. Den teoretiska utgångspunkten i detta arbete har varit ett designteoretiskt perspektiv. I resultatet framkommer hur jag har använt mig av resurserna appar, gestik, imitation, piano, tal och text samt musikteori för att lära mig improvisera. Det framkommer också att resurserna samverkar i hög grad. I diskussionen diskuteras, i relation till det designteoretiska perspektivet, den sociala kontextens betydelse och de förutsättningar som skapades för att lära sig sångimprovisation.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study is to examine how I practice vocal improvisation within the jazz genre with a focus on which resources are being used, how they are being used and in what way they might contribute to learning improvisation. To execute this I documented my practice sessions through video filming and the keeping of a log book. The theoretical perspective in this essay has been design theory. The result shows which resources have been used, and how they have been used. The resources in question are apps, gesticulation, imitation, piano, speech and text as well as music theory. In the discussion the significance of social context is discussed, as well as the conditions for learning vocal improvisation through the resources shown in the result. Also discussed is the multi modality of the resources.
