    ABSTRACT

    Erik Ageberg: Who's that girl? – Skivbolagskultur och dess påverkan på Robyn. Uppsala Universitet: Institutionen för Musikvetenskap. C-uppsats, 2006.

    Robyn has been one of the most successful Swedish pop stars during the last decade. She has during these ten last years gone from being a young star to being the owner of her own record label, Konichiwa Records. As a result of her last record she became an artist, highly respected by her fellow artists and the audience. The aim of this essay is to discuss the term artistic freedom in the light of Robyn's career. The organization of the music industry is the starting point of the discussion. The way the record companies create their artists are linked to the demands of the public regarding the music they wish to purchase. Accordingly, the artistic freedom is limited by the public in an indirect manner. When artists refer to artistic freedom, or lack of it, it is the author's opinion that it should be understood as a confusion of conceptual arguments. The claim of this thesis is that as the artist refers to the negligence of artistic freedom he or she is in fact targeting on the organizational culture of the music company.

    Sara Wennerberg-Reuter: att vara kvinna och kompositör kring sekelskiftet 1800 / 19002013Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This essay presents an example of the musical life of a female composer active in Sweden during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Through a case study on composer Sara Wennerberg-Reuter (1875-1959), the essay contributes information to her biography, which had been lacking specific details.

    Wennerberg-Reuter's biography has been discussed regarding traditional roles of women in music, her relationship to her own artistry and other active women composers, and finally the contemporary reception of Wennerberg-Reuter as a legitimate composer. Aesthetical theories prevalent during Wennerberg-Reuter’s life has been applied in these discussions, such as those presented by Citron, Öhrström and Hanson, combined with Citron's additional theories considering masculine/feminine elements in the musical approach.

    The main conclusions reached regarding the specific conditions enabling a professional status as a composer and woman in Sweden during the given time are;

    a) the liberal permission by the family to pursue higher education in composing, since this was in opposition to the traditions of the time.

    b) the access to a network of musically active women, from which a sense of being part of a female community can be created.

    c) the acceptance from musical institutions such as higher educations, composer's societies and media critics.

    Rak hård pop - Mottagandet i svensk press av The Jimi Hendrix Experiences konserter 19672005Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Erik Andersson: RAK HÅRD POP: Mottagandet i svensk press av The Jimi Hendrix Experiences konserter 1967. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap uppsats för 60 p., 2005

    Jimi Hendrix var en komplex artist med en karismatisk personlighet. Han var även en skicklig musiker och kompositör. Dessutom var han en färgad rockartist som främst lockade till sig en vit publik. Det fanns med andra ord mycket för en svensk journalist att lägga vikt vid. Syftet med den här uppsatsen är således att beskriva hur Hendrix mottogs av Svenska dags- och kvällstidningar under turnéerna i maj respektive september 1967. Utifrån detta källmaterial fann jag flera intressanta reflektioner.

    Bandet Experience med Hendrix i spetsen verkade redan i och med första Sverigeturnén i maj vara en omåttligt populär grupp. Anledningar till denna stora popularitet kan spåras ända tillbaka till The Jubilee Singers 100 tidigare.

    De svenska recensenterna lade stor vikt vid att beskriva scenshowen med det akrobatiska gitarrspelet. När det gäller hur musiken beskrivs finns två grundattityder. Den ena utrycker att bandet spelar en enkel musik för unga människor. Den andra uttrycker att bandet spelar musik på hög nivå och Hendrix beskrivs som en ljudkonstnär som skapar utomjordiska klanger.

    Utanför murarna.: En studie av Ulf Lundells och rockkulturens outsiderpositionering.2008Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Erik Andersson: Utanför Murarna: En studie av Ulf Lundells och rockkulturens outsiderpositionering. Uppsala universitet: Institutionen för musikvetenskap, 2007.

    The main aim of this essay is to show how the artist Ulf Lundell presents himself as someone with an outsider's view of life. This also includes showing that this aspiration is a common one among artists in the rock culture.

    The aim was reached by studying texts, lyrics, interviews, articles of and with Lundell and then applying theories about authenticity and performativity on this material. In order to put this in a context I looked at a similar material but with a much broader perspective, artists from different countries, genres and eras is here included.

    The conclusion of this study is that a kind of norm system in the rock culture has developed and Lundell is acting accordingly to these rules. The outsider position has become an important ingredient in Lundell's persona and this position can also be seen as a given norm in the wider context. However, the expectations from fans and critics of which kind of Lundell they want may look different and the norms can be broken.

    Bullriga basar och kvittrande sopraner: En studie om socialt konstruerade könsrollers påverkan på vår sångutövning2012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Abstract

    Syftet med uppsatsen är att ur genusperspektivet bidra till ökad förståelse om kvinnors och mäns olika förutsättningar för sångutövning. Existerar den kulturellt konstruerade sångrösten eller är anatomin faktorn som styr sångrösten? I en fallstudie där fyra sångpedagoger och dirigenter medverkar, uppmärksammas genus som pågående konstruktion och visar hur detta återkommande reproduceras i sångutövningen. Sångpedagogernas erfarenheter har jag ställt mot verifierad forskning, som bland annat ponerar hur det finns inlärda röstdrag som fysiologin inte kan förklara. 

    Förhoppningen är att uppsatsen visar på hur socialt konstruerade könsroller påverkar sångutövningen. Idealet att sjunga inom sin egen könstillhörighet är enligt mina informanter hårt, tufft och kraftfullt för killar och känsligt, mjukt, och vackert för tjejer. Vi ”ska” vara bullriga basar och kvittrande sopraner, efter socialt konstruerade könsroller. Genus påverkar sångutövningen genom att tjejer generellt inte har lika starkt självförtroende som killar, vilket resulterar i att killar gärna tar större utrymme i exempelvis en kör. Jag har funnit tendenser att mina informanter får jobba mer fysiskt med killarna, att de inte ska vara låga på tonen, och mer psykiskt med tjejerna, att de ska våga låta mer. Sammanfattningsvis anser jag att sång reflekterar vår identitet och killar och tjejer anpassar sin person efter samhällets förväntningar.

    En studie i text/musikproblematik: Relationen mellan dikt och ton i sånger av Lille Bror Söderlundh och Emil Sjögren.2004Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    ABSTRACT

    Anna Axelson: En studie i text/musikproblematik. Relationen mellan dikt och ton i sånger av Lille Bror Söderlundh och Emil Sjögren. – Uppsala: Musikvetenskap 2004. C-uppsats.

    Syftet med denna uppsats är att belysa ordens och tonernas inbördes relation i romanser och visor. För detta ändamål har två visor av Lille Bror Söderlundh och två romanser av Emil Sjögren studerats. Sångernas rytmik, melodik, harmonik och dynamik har analyserats i relation till texternas innehåll. Målet var att påvisa de nära sambanden mellan ord och ton – mellan tonsättarnas bruk av musikens parametrar, och dikttexternas handlingar och stämningar. Ambitionen med uppsatsen är även att den ska förmedla olika perspektiv på text/musikproblematik som ämne. Analyserna av de fyra sångerna placeras in i ett större sammanhang.

    Perspektiven på text/musikproblematik tillhandahålls av litteratur skriven av musikteoretiker och litteraturvetare som diskuterar dikttonsättandets möjligheter och begränsningar. En del iakttagelser beträffande Sjögrens romanser jämförs mot det som skrivits i musikteoretiska avhandlingar om hans musik.

    Resultatet av undersökningen indikerar att Emil Sjögren främst genom sin harmonibehandling tolkar dikt i musik. Behandlingen av harmoniken är framträdande i jämförelse med behandling av melodik och rytmik. Kromatiska ackordprogressioner är vanliga, liksom elliptiska tonartsutvikningar. Ackord med stark färgverkan (klangreiz) utnyttjas. Lille Bror Söderlundh tolkar texten i de analyserade visorna främst genom rytmik och harmonik. En strofisk dikt får en melodirytm som fångar dikttextens kärnord. Modala harmonier återspeglar dikttexternas folkliga teman.

    Folkmusik, främlingsfientlighet och Sverigedemokraterna: Debatt kring svensk folkmusik under 2010/20112012Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Under det senaste året har det friskt debatterats om svensk folklig kultur och inte minst folkmusikens traditioner; debatten initierades vid manifestationer, som väcktes under hösten 2010, mot presentationen av Sverigedemokraternas främlingsfientliga åsikter rörande den svenska kulturen.

    Uppsatsen redovisar hur debatten mellan folkmusiken och Sverigedemokraterna förts i media och vad SD:s vilja att värna folkkulturen skulle tänkas leda till. I texten tas det upp olika exempel som i sig ställer frågor om vad ”svenskhet” innebär och om traditioner skall konserveras eller kunna förändras. Utifrån artiklar och uttalanden i olika medier redovisas de åsikter som yttrats, främst koncentrerat på fyra folkmusikmagasin: Folkmusik & Dans, Hembygden, Lira Musikmagasin och Spelmannen.

    Studien visar att begrepp, som exempelvis ”folksjäl” och ”tradition”, har med tiden bytt innebörd. Folkmusik som begrepp och musik har förändrats över tid, och även synen på den. Ett genomgående intryck, som yttras från ett flertal håll, är ifrågasättandet av Sverigedemokraternas argument om värnandet av den svenska kulturen. De anses tendera att användas som slagträ för dess politiska åsikter.

    Amor in Deum. Representationen av eros i Christian Geists gudstjänstmusik för Karl XI:s hov2007In: Barock: historia, litteratur, konst, ISSN 1234-3233, Vol. specialnummer 2007, 127-141 p.Article in journal (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of love is a complex one. The early Christian church inherited from the ancient Greeks the dicotomy between eros and agape. Eros signified desire, obsession and yearning and is primarily associated with sexual urge; agape instead meant a benevolent and self-sacrifiying love. Agape (or caritas) was associated with Christian love, whereas eros or amor was more problematic. Still, it was part of tradition through the Song of Songs, a erotic love poem which was reinterpreted as an allegory of the love between the believing soul and Jesus – a love articulated in a vast repertory of religious poems during medieval and early modern time.

    In my article I examine a number of settings to Latin devotional poems by Christian Geist (c1650–1711), composed for royal Communion services at the Swedish court during the 1670s. Five central motifs can be discerned in the texts of these works: yearning, desire, sickness and death, lamentation and tears, and finally sweetness. They are all characteristic for the imagery of the Song of Songs, and for the concept of eros.

    In his treatise Musurgia universalis (Rome 1650) Athanasius Kircher discussed the musical representation of the passion of love. He made a distinction between the earthly affectus amoris on the one hand, and affectus amoris on the other. The latter is described as more moderate in its expression. Kircher also remarks that love is a complex passion, which can include several sub-passions, such as joy, grief, etc.

    This complexity is seen in Christian Geist’s compositions. To be able to express the love for God or Jesus, he employs different means and sub-affects. Some things are difficult, to represent by musical anologies: thus, for motifs such as desire and yeaning he chooses a generally strong and intense musical expression; yearning and longing can however also be illustrated by a streching of musical notes. For the motifs of lamenting and crying, and for the illustration of how the soul is sick of love Geist employs conventional musical schemes such as descending musical lines, cromaticism, and the musical imitation of sighs. In these works one do not find the kind of moderation advocated by Kircher. His representation of love is instead in line with contemporary secular settings of erotical texts.

    Abstract [en]

    Mourning music for a dead Queen. On the music for the funeral of Queen Ulrika Eleonora the younger in 1693

    Ulrika Eleonora the younger, Queen of Sweden since 1680, died in July 1693. She was buried in the Royal funeral church, Riddarholmskyrkan, on November 28 the same year. The Queen’s funeral was shaped to be one of the most magnificent ceremonies of state in Sweden during the baroque era. The decorations for the ceremony were created by the Royal court architect, Nicodemus Tessin the younger (1654–1728). For the Queen’s coffin he built a castrum doloris with a huge black pyramid, covered with emblems and inscriptions painted in golden colour, which were illuminated by lamps inside the construction (see illustration).

    Little or nothing has been known about the music played during this ceremony. According to the official relation two musical works were performed. In this article I am able to show that the works referred to consisted in one composition by the French court violinist Pierre Verdier, Kristus är mitt liv, and one by the Flemish composer Daniel Danielis, Ascpice e caelis, with a new text in Swedish. This can be shown by means of source and watermark studies and by analysing the texts. The bible word “Kristus är mitt liv och döden är min vinning” (Phil. 1:21: “to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain”) serving as text base for Verdier’s piece was the Queens motto and the text for the sermon. An interesting fact is that Danielis’ Aspice e caelis was originally composed in 1672 for the funeral of a princess of Güstrow-Mecklenburg, who was a cousin to Ulrika Eleonora’s husband the King, and who bore the same name as the deceased Queen.

    Both works are marked by a sad, plaintive affect appropriate for such an occasion. Both are set in c minor and scored for gamba consort, which in this time was associated with tears and sorrow. Arguably, one could relate the specifically sweet and tearful character of these pieces to the Queens’ female gender. Contemporary funeral music for Kings and male heroes seem to have had a more dignified and moderate affect. In both works we find instances of symbolic, rhethorical personification: in Verdiers composition the duet between bass and soprano can arguably be associated with the Queens’ tender relation to Christ. In Danieli’s motet the solo soprano voice can be linked to female gender of the person being buried.

    Studier i Christian Geists vokalmusik2002Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This dissertation is an historical and analytical study of the vocal works of Christian Geist (c1650–1711), composed for the royal Swedish court and for the German church in Gothenburg. Theoretically it draws on the model of genre history advocated by Carl Dahlhaus.

    The first three chapters deal with Geist’s biography and milieu, the manuscript sources and the uses of his music. The second part deals with Geist’s compositions, and the relation between use, musical design and genre traditions are studied. The compositions are analysed and interpreted as individual solutions to problems in the history of composition, related to questions of genre and to important changes in compositional techniques from around 1650.

    A typical feature of Geist’s music is a resistance to regular solutions. This is manifested in the reciprocal relation between the use of generic and schematic models on the one hand, and the constant effort to break, differentiate and modify these models. The most individualistic solutions are to be found in his settings of Latin devotional poetry, some of which were composed for royal Communion services. These are designed as clearly sectionalised, stylistically differentiated arias with very strong affect, accomplished mainly by harmonic means. His concertos for regular worship services and solemn occasions stay closer to the norms of the genre. Still, they are marked by the integration of a modern, italianate approach to harmony based on cadence progressions and a regular grouping of phrases, which radically changes the design of the concerto textures.

    Traditionalister och radikala i efterkrigstidstidens svenska musikliv: Kring Jan Carlstedt och hans stråkkvartett nr 22009In: STM-Online, ISSN 1403-5715, Vol. 12Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    During the 1950s and early 1960, the art music scene in Sweden saw a conflict between the advocates of a more traditionalist and moderate modernism on the one hand, and the devotees of radical and experimental music on the other. The most articulate spokesman for the traditionalist camp was the composer Jan Carlstedt (1926–2004), a pupil of Lars Erik Larsson. In my article this historical tension between traditionalists and radicals is analysed using material from newspapers, magazines and not the least the diary of Bo Wallner, a source which gives unique insights in the silent play behind the scenes. It is argued that the opposing fractions to a large extent shared similar aesthetic views, and that the conflicts of opinion was a matter of style rather than fundamental aestetic questions. Moreover the schism was a result of conflicting agendas of a more musico-political kind, the radical camp working to strengthen the position of Swedish music on the international arena.

    Therafter Jan Carlstedts music aesthetic stance is scrutinized, via his statements about his own music as well as that of his models – especially Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitry Shostakovic. Moreover the practical, compositional consequences of that stance are exemplified through an analysis of his second string quartet (1966), which he himself pointed out as a key work. The ambition to regenerate art music by “giving new meaning to the lasting elements of the musical tradition” turns out to be a central idea in Carlstedt's views on music. In the second quartet this is mainly attempted by unconventional manipulations of a basically traditional harmonical language, taking inspiration from the music by Shostakovic, Bartók and Britten. In this process, he often used different kinds of symmetrical patterning. The harmonic language can at times be quite dissonant, but this is balanced with quite conventional schemes of melody, rhythm and phrase organisation. His musical language is related to that of Shostakovic, but lacks the Russians complex stylistic fractures.

    Lockad till kurs: Tio personers upplevelse av att lära sig kula1998Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Marie Bergman: Lockad till kurs. Varför människor vill lära sig kula idag. Uppsala: Musikvetenskap, 1998. C-uppsats (60 p).

    Sedan början av 1990-talet har antalet människor som lär sig att kula via olika kurser ökat. Syftet med uppsatsen är att undersöka varför de vill lära sig konsten att kula, vad det därefter betyder för dem, samt ge en bild av en av de kurser i kulning som finns i dag. Uppsatsens material består av skriftliga intervjuer med tio deltagare vid en fortsättningskurs i kulning som hölls på Folkkulturscentrum i Stockholm i februari 1998. Uppsatsen är skriven utifrån ett emiskt perspektiv, eftersom jag själv var en av deltagarna. Komparativ metod har använts, då jag jämfört med resultaten i en uppsats med liknande syfte och metod. Det ökade intresset för kulning är en följd av det sedan 70-talet växande intresse för folkmusik i Sverige. I kulningen finner många en stark kraft och den har för åtskilliga inneburit att de utvecklats som människor. Ett framträdande drag av historicism märks också, när många säger sig vilja bevara en utdöende tradition.

    'Cum organum dicitur': The transmission of vocal polyphony in pre-Reformation Sweden and bordering areas2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The polyphonic sources of medieval Sweden are very few, although well-documented in musicological research. However, while most of the earlier research has tended to focus on interpreting the sources themselves rather than to examine the cultural and historical context in which they were written, the present dissertation aims at providing a broader narrative of the transmission and practice of polyphony. By examining the cultural context of the sources and putting them in relation to each other, a bigger picture is painted, where also Danish and Norwegian sources are included.

    Based on the discussion and analyses of the sources, a general historical outline is suggested. The practice of organum in the late 13th century in Uppsala was probably a result from Swedes studying in Paris and via oral transmission brought the practice back home. This 'Parisian path' was accompanied by an 'English-Scandinavian' path, where mostly Denmark and Norway either influenced or were influenced by English polyphonic practice. During the 14th century, polyphony seems to have been rather established in Sweden, although prohibitions against it were made by the Order of the Bridgettines. These prohibitions were probably linked to a general antipolyphonic attitude in Europe, beginning with the papal bull of John XII in 1324. The sources of the 15th and 16th centuries are very different from each other, and perhaps suggest that polyphony of older styles were sung in monasteries and certain churches while more modern discant were sung at the royal courts and at larger religious feasts such as the translation of Catherine of Vadstena.
