Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka hur dirigenter för symfoniorkester och storband använder olika tecken i sin kommunikation samt att se om det fanns tydliga likheter och skillnader mellan de olika orkesterformerna. I studien har ett socialsemiotiskt och multimodalt perspektiv använts. Dirigenterna har analyserats utifrån bland annat vilka teckensystem de använder i sin kommunikation med musikerna. Videoobservation har använts som metod och materialet har tagits från siten www.youtube.com Urvalet har bestått i inspelningar av världskända professionella dirigenter som dirigerar professionella orkestrar, några av de bästa inom sitt fält. Resultatet påvisar att dirigenterna ofta använder många teckensystem simultant. Dirigenterna använder en del gemensamma tecken men även många personliga tecken för sin kommunikation. Det framkom vissa skillnader mellan genrerna men då resultaten även skiljde sig mellan dirigenterna inom samma genre krävs mer studier för att ge ett slutgiltigt resultat. Överlag behövs fler studier på dirigering inom storbandsorkester.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate how conductors representing two different orchestral traditions - the symphony orchestra and big band- use different signs for communication and to explore whether there are any clear differences and similarities between them. Throughout the analysis, a social semiotic and multimodal perspective was applied. The conductors have been analysed by which signs they use when communicating with the musicians. Video observation was used as a method and the material has been retrieved from www.youtube.com. The selection contains recordings of professional and world-famous conductors, working with world renowned orchestras. The result of the study seems to reveal that the conductors utilize and communicate with many sign systems simultaneously and that they use mutual signs as well as personal signs when communicating. There were differences between the two genres but also between conductors within the same genre so further studies are needed to establish a more thorough conclusion. Overall, there is a need for further and larger studies regarding big band orchestras.
