Negotiating the musical work : An empirical study


  • Henrik Frisk
  • Stefan Östersjö

Summary, in English

In this paper we explore the inter-relations between performer and composer through twoempirical studies and the result of this work is intended to lay the ground fora new work for guitar and computer by Henrik Frisk for Stefan Östersjö. Bybetter understanding the composer-performer interaction we also hope to betterunderstand the necessary conditions for a successful performer-computerinteraction. We approach the issue using a semiological approach and aqualitative method. In the works studied we find reason to suggest thatcomposition as well as performance interpretation oscillate betweenconstructive and interpretative activities. From this we draw some conclusionsthat we will attempt to develop and implement in the upcoming collaborativework.
