The conductor as a problem solver : A video observation study on how orchestral conductors solve problems during rehearsals (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien är att undersöka hur orkesterdirigenter designar sitt arbete för att lösa problem under repetitionsarbete. I bakgrundskapitlet beskrivs tidigare forskning om dirigentens historiska roll och dess roll i repetitionsarbetet. Vidare beskrivs forskning kring hur kommunikationen sker med gestik och mimik. Det designteoretiska perspektivet fokuserar på människors användande av tecken för kommunikation och lärande och används som teoretiskt ramverk i den här studien. Studien har en kvalitativ forskningsansats med videoobservation som metod. Två dirigenter har videoobserverats och det inspelade materialet har transkriberats och analyserats med fokus på de teckenskapande resurser dirigenter använder för att lösa problem som uppstår i orkesterspelet. I resultatet framkommer att dirigenterna använder tal, sång, mimik och gestik för att lösa problem som uppstår och att de förebildar med hjälp av dessa resurser. I diskussionen lyft dirigenternas anpassningsförmåga upp och hur de designar sina repetitioner för att förmedla sina musikaliska intentioner till orkestern.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine how conductors design their work to solve problems during an orchestra rehearsal. The background chapter describes previous research of the historic role of the conductor and its role in the rehearsal work. Furthermore, it describes previous research on how communication takes place with gestures and mimics. The design theory perspective, which focuses on people's use of signs for communication and learning, is used as theoretical framework for this study. The study has a qualitative research approach with video observation as its method. Two conductors have been observed and videorecorded. The material has then been transcribed and analyzed by focusing on the sign making resources the conductors use for solving problems during the orchestra rehearsal. The results show that the conductors use speech, song, mimic and gesture to solve problems that arise in the orchestra and that they use these resources to communicate their musical intentions to the orchestra. In the discussion, the conductor’s ability to adapt is emphasized. This adaptibility becomes clear when the conductor design the rehearsal work.
