    En improvisatorisk jämförelse2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this essay I describe the similarities and differences between my main instrument, trombone, and my secondary instrument, baritone horn. The question I asked myself in the beginning wasdealing with what effects these instruments may or may not have onmyself in an improvisational context.In order to bring the project to a practical and musical setting aconcert was to be held. Because of this a lot of time was spent composing music with the two instruments in mind. Different ways of composing used aredescribed later in the essay.For example,only using pen and paper as well as the computer program Sibelius.The compositions were also divided between the two instruments. Some tunes were using trombone and others baritone horn. The reasoning behind this is also elaborated on. In order to make the comparison as fair as possible a lot of time was spent practicing thesecondary instrument. This was because of the needto eliminate the element offaultytechnique as much as possible.The last part of the essay reflectsupon different aspects that could have been improved.Such as planning the rehearsals, which got prioritized pretty late in the process and ended up leavingless combined rehearsaltimethan what was initiallyplanned. There isalsoa return to the question asked in the beginning.Explainingwhat differences and similarities wasfound. Also discussingthe effects that the different instruments had when playing themand why that may be. These effects revolved partly around sound quality but also how theimprovisational ways slightly changed between the instruments.

    Abstract [en]

    I wanted to challenge myself and write music for an unusual constellation of instruments. I wrote music that had inspiration from different genres like jazz, baroque, folk music and classical music. The instruments I wrote for were cello, recorder, harpsichord and double bass. The instrument basson participates in one of the pieces. In my work I will explore different forms when it comes to composition and ensemble play. I will investigate different approaches and methods with the ensemble. Methods that leave a lot of space for the musician's interpretation of the pieces. Together we shape the music into something that we think is interesting. During this project, I learned a lot about the instruments cello, recorder, harpsichord and double bass and how they work together. The project resulted in a concert at KMH.

    Musikalisk Frihet2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this project, Björn Atle Anfinsen has composed music for his group Anfinsen Atmosphere with focus on finding freedom in his musical expression. The music was played and recorded on his exam concert at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm in the beginning of march 2019.

    In his compositions he combines different genres such as electronic, hard rock, folk-world and ambient music. The goal with combining genres is to create an image where different styles of music could be together. The music is written as a suite for the concert where all the songs are played directly after each other as one song, with no break in between. The idea of this is to do a concert similar to a theatre performance. 

    As a result of the project, Björn Atle states that he has found new ways of writing music where he can achive freedom in his musical expression. He also explores new sounds that he creates with the trumpet within the genres he combines.

    Musikaliska Uttryckssätt Som Jag Använder: En Analys2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Abstract

    The essay is an analysis by William Benckert where he defines and discusses the musical tools of expression he used when performing and composing music for his exam concert. Most of the compositions were created with strong influences from the Swedish jazz pianist ”Esbjörn Svensson”, therefore many of the musical concepts and tools discussed are ones that William associates with Svensson’s music. 

    In the essay he compares what tools of expression he used for particular pieces and which tools he used across multiple pieces. The musical aspects he analyses are the music’s harmonic content, rhythmics, melodics, form and overall emotion. The question he tries to answer is ”Which central tools of musical expression were used for specific songs and which were used across multiple songs, and how were these tools actually put to use in context?”. 

    In the conclusion he discusses how he will bring these tools of expression into his artistic process in the future. He also discusses what lessons he learned from his analysis.

    KMH Stories: Berättelser om människan bakom musikern2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    When talking about musicians we usually talk about education, technique and musical role models. But I don’t believe that that is what the musicians themselves want to communicate with their music. In this project I wanted to investigate the personal stories of the musicians at KMH. During my education at KMH I've experienced that the reflection about artistic identity was overshadowed by the focus on craftmanship. I wanted to discuss what might happen if one gave the two the same attention. Apart from presenting a scene for the personal stories I also wanted to investigate alternative ways for composing and studying music. An extensive part of the composition process has been about semantics as a method for composition.

        During this project Malte has explored composition and musical leadership within an ensemble as well as his own role as a bass player. He aimed to investigate how the addition of vocals to the ensemble would impact his bass playing and compositions.

        The compositions were based on his main musical influences and he collaborated with the vocalist Joanné Nugas during the composition process. The method of composing each song is described in the middle of the essay.

        After being rehearsed the compositions were performed at a concert at Kungliga Musikhögskolan. The concert was recorded which, after listening to, Malte reflects about the concert in the end.

    Skriva improvisationsmusik med Franz Schubert2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    During this project I have studied piano music by Franz Schubert (1797-1828) to thereafter use a couple of his harmonic structures as a foundation for composing music for piano trio. To write music that encourages improvisation and interaction between the band members has been a central focus while the broad goal of the project has been to develop myself as a musician and person. The project started in the fall of 2017, a senior recital was performed in Lilla Salen at KMH the 28th of February and was followed by time for reflection which can be found documented in my paper.

                Something I wanted to try with this project was to create according to a partially predetermined method. I wanted Schubert’s music to have an impact on my compositions and from there I decided to transcribe harmonic structures on four of his works to rework these into new compositions. I hoped that this method would bring a forward motion to the work and in retrospect I believe it did. Composing with a few guidelines contributed with a sense of comfort to the process and made me stay on track through passages of low inspiration.

                Reflecting on my work I feel that it became a good closure to my studies at KMH. A hybrid process showcasing different musical expressions, skills and sides to my personality with a work method that felt exciting.

    Solokontrabas: hur akustik, intonation och perception inspirerat till ny musik.2017Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    Acoustics, intonation and perception are fields that musicians deal with every day. Even so, they are rarely taught extensively in musical education. In my artistic project I investigated how new knowledge in these fields could work as a musical resource and inspire to new solo music for double bass.

     My method has been to compose studies, to make use of this new knowledge in a musical setting. In the etudes I have isolated small areas such as; beating, multiphonics, overpressure, just intonation intervals, the pitch-rhythm continuum, difference tones and microtonal modulation.

    This work has changed my view of the concept tone, interval and consonance/dissonance. Working this way has triggered a lot of inspiration and productivity for new unexpected music. This text could be useful for double bass or string players, composers for double bass, musicians that want inspiration in solo playing or incorporate Just Intonation in their musical language.

    This bachelor thesis declares my journey of writing music. The name and theme of the project is Maze, which is a description of me exploring my musical identity and personal development. Throughout this project I have processed all my thoughts through my cognitive behavioral therapy, to find a deeper meaning to my musicianship. I have also analyzed methods in lyric-writing and interviewed artists about their experiences. I have incorporated these learnings into my own music - to improve my craftsmanship in songwriting. The goal of this project is to be well-aware of my musical and personal patterns and to show my musical range in a concert that sums up my four years at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.

    Ett steg bakåt, två steg framåt.: Att utveckla en pianotrio.2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this thesis I will describe the process of working with a piano trio. The trio consisted of Jonny Ek on piano, Uno Dvärby on bass and, me, Jakob Bylund on drums. This process included choosing musicians, studying influences, rehearsing, and the selecting and arranging songs.

     I will also reflect on my role as the drummer and band leader of the trio.

    The main purpose was to investigate what happens to a trio that does not only rehearse often, but also puts in a lot of work in to studying their role models, such as Oscar Peterson trio and Ahmad Jamal trio, by listening and transcribing arrangements played by them.

     By using these methods, the trio hoped to achieve a greater understanding of what these references were actually playing, and using that knowledge to develop its own interplay, dynamics and sound. 

    The impact of role models is analyzed by comparing the Oscar Peterson trio and Ahmad Jamal trio to each other, and to my own trio, finding the uniqueness of each group as well as the similarities between them. 

    During this project I have learned a lot as a drummer, arranger and band leader. Because of our many rehearsals and the way we studied our role models, I have gained a deeper understanding of my tendencies when drumming. I’ve also learned that the drummer in a piano trio could determine the direction of the music with very subtle but efficient ways, and therefore has a lot of power and responsibility to take care of the music. 

    As a result of using these methods the trio managed to get a deeper understanding of why its role models sounded like they did and use that information to develop in their footprints.

    Abstract [en]

    This paper is about my process of composing and performing music inspired by The Great American Songbook. Doing this via tools acquired by analyzing the works from composers like Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Arthur Johnston and other composers from that era. I have analyzed and found common associations with form and harmony, the use of melodic content and often used clichés which I have incorporated in my own composing. It also deals with my progress to arrange and rehearse the music to present it in form of a concert at The Royal College of Music on the 6thof March 2020. I reflect about the process of composing and if I achieved the same level of freedom playing my compositions as I have playing jazz standards. I come to the conclusion that I feel as confident performing these tunes as I do music from The Great American Songbook.

    Abstract [en]

    This bachelor thesis aims to give the reader an understanding of my musical journey during the years at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, as well as in my life before that. I describe my struggling with what genre I want to identify with as a composer and vocalist because of my love for pop music, coming from a heavily jazz influenced background (and studying at a Jazz Institution).

    I describe the work I put in the five songs that is the result of this project and I present the people that have been involved (such as co-writers, mixing engineers, producers and band members). 

    I talk about my love for improvisation and jazz and how I feel that I can incorporate that into my more and more commercial sounding pop songs.

    The last parts of the thesis will include reflections on my lyrics as well as all the different ways of composing music I have come to use and love.

    More and More of Less and Less: Ett poemusikaliskt utforskande i text ton och flöde2018Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    This text is the written part of an artistic master’s project at KMH, Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden. The purpose of this work is to explore perspectives and inputs to promote a composition process of text and tone in creative flow and to make them into some kind of method. The perspectives of reorientation, mimicry, play and risk, generated from Csikszentmihalyi's theories about conditions for the rise of flow state, as well as the improvisation theater's affirmative concept of Yes-and…, are applied to musical composition and artistic interpretation. Another objective of the project is to emphasize the role of the text in the pieces of music through compositional and interpretative methods, and to create conditions for musical improvisation that relate to the theme and drama of the texts reinforcing them. In reflections on the artistic results – the compositions and the performance of those in a concert - conclusions are drawn about how and when the flow state arises and decreases in composition processes, and about which tools can bring creative flow back after ceasing and about what is needed to avoid the risks of the absorbent flow state.

    Abstract [en]

    In this project I have been focusing on the task of conveying certain feelings with my music. I have chosen 4 cities that I have lived in and composed music that is supposed to convey the feelings I get when thinking of them. For example; I lived in Falun when I was 16-19 years old. This was a fun time of my life; I had just moved away from my parents and I lived with my best friend in a nice apartment. So, when I think about Falun, I remember the good times and I feel excited and happy. So those are the feelings I try to convey with the tune “Falun”. 

     

    This project took place in Denton, Texas, since I was there on an exchange year at the time. The goal for the project was to perform a concert where the audience were going to fill out a form, answering questions about how the music made them feel. I would later read their answers in order to see if I succeeded in conveying the feelings that I aspired to convey. 

     

    The band that I played with was called “Kinda Swedish Quintet”, and it consisted of people from America, South Korea and Sweden. We rehearsed about 6 times during a period of 8 weeks before we performed the concert. The concert went well, despite the fact that there were not that many people in the audience. 

     

    When reading through the forms that the audience filled out during the concert I had the pleasure of discovering that, in most cases, I had succeeded with conveying the emotions I wanted to convey. With some tunes I did more so than others, but in general the answers that the audience wrote on their forms corresponded very well with my intentions.

    Abstract [en]

    "Composing for the pianotrio" is Anton Dromberg’s degree project at the jazz institution of the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where his field of study is jazz piano.

    The text is centered around the composing process, specifically focused on the harmonic aspects of his music, with the purpose of developing his composing abilities as well as his artistic voice in general. For inspiration and as a manner of improving his general harmonic knowledge he has been studying two books: "Romantikens harmonik" written by music theorist Jörgen Jersild and "The theory of harmony" written by the great 20th century composer Arnold Schönberg. The way of examining the degree project was to record the songs he written in the studio of The Royal College of Music.

    In the text’s introduction Anton explains his musical background and the purpose of this degree project. After that he explains his method of composing in general and why he chose the particular way of composing. He then goes on to talk about the two books he chose to study and explains their contents briefly.

    The next section is the largest section of the degree project, in which he explains the specific compositional process of each individual song. Here he goes into detail regarding the harmonic, rhythmic and melodic structure of his songs, illustrated with examples from the sheet music.

    After that section Anton explains the rehearsal process and the general planning that went into preparing for the recording session. He then talks about the recording itself and reflects on each song individually.

    The last section of the degree project is his reflections on the project as a whole, explaining what he learned and his general thoughts on how he followed up on the projects original purpose.

    Att medvetandegöra sina influenser2020Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    In this bachelor project I tried to find if I could enhance my playing and composing by listening to music in an analyzing manner. I listened to jazz music that was recorded in the 1920s and jazz music that was recorded in the present day to try and find different aspects of the music that I enjoyed. Using these aspects, I composed music for a 7-piece band and performed that music in a concert.

    The goal of this project was not to create a fusion of these different styles of music but to contemplate on what I like in these different styles of music and how I can use that knowledge to my advantage.

    Transkribering som metod för konstnärlig utveckling2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    By transcribing songs from the standard repertoire, and some selected jazz musicians' improvised solos over these songs, I have studied how transcribing affects my own artistic expression. Some of the musicians I have been inspired by are Barry Harris, Paul Chambers and Oscar Peterson. The songs I’ve chosen come from the standard jazz repertoire of the 1940's and 50's. The question in this work was whether it was possible to derive my own playing and improvising at my degree concert from the material I had studied during the course of this project.

     

    The idea for this project came from my interest in transcribing as a method for developing my artistic expression as a jazz pianist. Furthermore, I had grown tired of using some commonly used sources of sheet music and chord progressions, such as the mobile application iReal or various fake books containing jazz standards, like the well known Real Book. The song sketches these contain can in some cases give a very misleading picture of the original versions of the songs.

     

    First, I did a transcription of an early version of each song, to use as a reference point. Then, I transcribed solos by the selected musicians, as well as parts of my own solos recorded at both the very beginning of the project and at my degree concert. I then analyzed the transcriptions regarding phrasing, tone material and sound.

     

    In the process of transcribing solos, I have tried to mimic the original recording as much as possible. Various tools were used, such as mobile applications, to make loops and change the tempo to help with transcribing.

     

    By going back to transcribing early versions of jazz standards, I hope to have gained an increased understanding of the jazz genre that I love to play and listen to. Working with transcribing has also made me reflect on the piano from a historical perspective.

     

    In this text, I discuss the challenge of staying neutral to the transcribed material during the degree concert. Did I play phrases because they were part of my vocabulary or because I remembered them from the transcriptions? I further discuss the issue of the time limit of the project, which made it difficult to assess the results of the work.

     

    Transcribing my own solos has been very rewarding. It has helped me to concretize what I want to practice. For example, through transcribing I recognize how limited I am in certain keys compared to others.

     

    In addition to some specific phrases, much of Barry Harris's overall playing has been integrated into my own, and he is also the musician who have had the greatest impact on my own style of playing, of the three I’ve studied for this project.
