    Evolutionary Jazz Improvisation: Jazz Harmony and Solo Improvisation Created by Means of Evolutionary Algorithms with Automatic Fitness2013In: Sport and Art, ISSN 2331-6195, E-ISSN 2331-6233, Vol. 1, no 3, p. 67-74Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes the Evolutionary Jazz Improvisation (EJI) system for creation of jazz harmony and jazz solo improvisations based on evolutionary algorithms with automatic evaluation. The evaluation function is implemented using score calculation based on specific events recognized in the chord progression and solo line, and alignment to different optimal intensity increase and relaxation curves. The evaluation function is based on the author’s solo analysis of 73 great masters’ solo characteristics and their techniques used for build-up of jazz solos. The results have been evaluated by our live jazz group and used in jam sessions, some of which have been recorded and made available for listening at the links given later.

    Körsång och lust: en undersökning av körsång som sinnlig aktivitet och erfarenhet2009In: STM-Online, E-ISSN 1403-5715, Vol. 12Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This article investigates choir singing as an embodied, sensuous experience. I have chosen a bundle of concepts which I think are foundational for singing, especially singing together in a choir. The concepts in question are embodiment, pleasure, and community, and by narrowing down the meaning of these concepts in this particular context, I try to make the phenomenon of choir singing appear. Choral singing is an aesthetic experience which embraces feelings of presence and engagement as an embodied subject; creating and reception; pleasure and happiness; being part of and a whole simultaneous, together. Thus, it is not possible to clearly demarcate the object for the investigation but in the frame of "choral singing and pleasure" I will illuminate the aspects that I find most relevant. The whole discussion ends up in some reflections concerning similarities between aesthetic and religious experience which would be interesting to deepen in the future.

    Revelation of the social status, objectification and empowerment of women in popular music2022Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this essay is to see how the language in three songs constructs and represents women and men as two unequally positioned genders in society. The focus is on the revelations of women’s status, social and ideological processes, which women were subjected to, or they as agents participate in. For the present study, three different popular songs were analyzed by looking into different aspects of gender issues. The linguistic concepts semantic fields and semantic roles were applied to illustrate how women and men are portrayed differently, as well as to show how men and women’s social position differ. The findings show that songs are a source that represent and discuss different issues of gender,additionally, that women commonly are victimized, objectified and portrayed as powerless. The results also highlight how popular music reflects and reveals women’s social status and processes they go through (either positive or negative) in modern time

    Discursive constructions in pre-school teacher education course literature on music

    Changes in the education system might impact on how aesthetic activities are staged in preschool teacher education, where music constitutes one aspect. The academic discourse in preschool teacher education focuses on theory, reflection and text production. Consequently, the choice of course literature is becoming increasingly important. The focus of the present study was formed based on a lack of studies on course literature in music within a Swedish preschool teacher education context. More specifically, the aim is to study discursive constructions of music in prefaces to course literature in preschool teacher education. The study is based on a social constructionist perspective with a discourse analytical approach. The findings reveal four discourses: music in everyday life; preschool teachers as insufficiently knowledgeable and responsible; children as unproblematically generalized; and children as subjects with agency.

    Musicianship and Personal Knowledge Management2022In: European Journal of Philosophy in Arts Education, ISSN 2002-4665, Vol. 7, no 2, p. 161-190Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In today’s information focused world, most days involve contact with some form of screen and keyboard for work and leisure purposes. Learners must be dexterous and agile to effectively respond to shifting labour market requirements reflecting fastchanging technological needs and expectations. Information is available in a myriad of forms and successful engagement requires effective and efficient skills and understanding. With this background, this paper asserts that a musical skill set broadens the way that learners subsequently engage with and manage their information acquisition and use. This provides a broader base for ongoing knowledge management. Using philosophical and reflective approaches, it draws on life experiences from arts education by way of a duoethnographic approach. Two narratives provide insights of individual experiences, subsequent acquisition and engagement with information and consequent enhanced knowledge. These are analysed using a personal knowledge management model, providing a visualisation approach to the collaboration through knowledge sharing. The dialogic results demonstrate how the background of musical competence enriched subsequent learning capability in structuring and operationalising knowledge acquisition and management.
