Chimär - Symphony No.1 in D major : Orchestration and arrangement of pop music for symphony orchestra (English)
Abstract [sv]

I det här projektet undersöks vad resultatet blir när melodier ur egenskriven populärmusik orkestreras och arrangeras för symfoniorkester i den klassiska formen av rondo, i detta fall efter en äldre form av rondo bestående av fyra återkommande teman samt tre episoder eller avvikelser från temat. Denna typ av rondo var populär under barocken och romantiken. Målet var att ta reda på om jag med begränsade förkunskaper inom den klassiska konstmusiken kan skapa ett stycke musik som påminner om ett utdrag ur en symfoni från 1800-talets romantik men där sagda stycke baseras på bandet Kainoabels melodier. För att uppnå detta har jag valt att skriva efter en form och för ett instrumentarium som ofta representeras inom den klassiska konstmusiken samt att jag efter bästa förmåga tar inspiration från delar ur en symfoni skriven av Johannes Brahms år 1883. Även andra stycken, som har valts ut i samråd med handledare, har agerat inspirationskälla under projekttiden. Resultatet visar på att det nyskrivna stycket klingar mer nutida än önskat på grund av melodiernas ofta joniska karaktär. Stycket fick i min mening andra stildrag än vad som önskades i målsättningen men som ändå innehar andra kvaliteter som kan beskrivas som mer filmiska och stundtals juvenila. 

Abstract [en]

This project investigate what the outcome is when melodies from self-produced popular music are orchestrated and arranged for symphony orchestra in a form of rondo. In this case, after an older form of rondo consisting of four recurring themes as well as three episodes or deviations from said theme. This kind of rondo was made popular during the baroque and romantic epoch. The goal is to find out if, with limited previous knowledge in the field of classical art music, I can create a piece of music that reminds of an excerpt from a symphony from the 19th century romanticism where the said piece is based on melodies of the band Kainoabel. In order to achieve this, I have chosen to write after a form and an instrumentarium that is often represented in classical art music and that I take inspiration from parts of a symphony written by Johannes Brahms in 1883. Other pieces of music, selected in consultation with a supervisor, have acted as inspirational sources during the project. The result show that the newly written piece sounds more contemporary than desired due to the often ionic character of the tunes. In my opinion, the piece got a different character than desired but still possesses other qualities that can be described as more cinematic and sometimes juvenile.
