Improvisera mera? Kritisk diskursanalys och dekonstruktion av texter om orgelimprovisation
Summary, in English
This article describes an analysis of texts on musical learning processes. Two texts from two Swedish textbooks on organ improvisation, that were pub- lished with an interval of twenty years (1977 and 1996), were chosen with the purpose of studying the development of lan- guage use during this period. A combination of critical discourse analysis (CDA) and deconstruc- tion was used in the analysis, as a means of unwrapping the texts and setting them in motion. The process of interpretation focused on aspects of the dis- course on improvisatory learn- ing and resulted in somewhat surprising results and conclu- sions. In the article, these are described with detailed exam- ples from the texts and dis- cussed as connected to changes in social structure and musical teaching practices.
