Jag som bas - position och komposition

Abstract [en]

In this bachelor thesis I describe the process in detail of making a recording of self-composed music from different times during my years at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm. The music was recorded with a quartet consisting of piano, electric guitar, upright bass and drums. My questions concern the role of the guitar voice in my compositions, how I work as an ensemble leader and how my own composing is influenced by the musicians who inspire me.

 

One aspect that I explore more thoroughly is how a guitar voice can be used in my compositions, since the music from the beginning is written for piano trio. I discovered that I appreciate when the melody is played in unison by guitar and piano. I contribute this to the fact that vibrato cannot be played by the piano. Instead, it is complemented by the guitar in a natural way.

 

In my discussion of my role as a bass player and how I work as a band leader, I reflect upon how my personality affects the way I lead. I come to the conclusion that I personally enjoy being a sideman, so that I with the help of my instrument can support and provide a depth to the music. As an ensemble leader, I have been practicing entering a new role. Here I have found the strength in utilizing and seeing the value of my fellow musicians' opinions and ideas to let the composition reach its full potential. All in all, this project has allowed me to gain a greater understanding of how I function as a musician and has produced five recordings that I take great pride in.
