Abstract [en]

The aim of this thesis was to merge the different parts of my musicianship – the piano, the synthesizer and the computer – in a minimalistic, electronic genre based mainly on improvisation. The process consisted of experimenting with sound design on the instruments used, whether it was a piano, a computer, or a synthesizer. Therefore this thesis included some explorations of piano preparing, distortions, drones as well as effects, modular synthesis and recording. Through improvising on either a prepared piano or a synth the core of a song was created. It was then processed and refined through overdubs and editing. The goal was to make music that was slowly changing but always interesting, meditative but challenging.

The main reason this project came to be was the unmet need for a creative hiding space where no regards were put to other people’s musical opinions. Consequently this study had to be a solo project.

A main part of the thesis is the reflection on how the project progressed during the time it was executed. All insights made are described and reflected upon.
