Improvisera mera? Kritisk diskursanalys och dekonstruktion av texter om orgelimprovisation

Author

  • Karin Johansson

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.
