MetadataShow full item record
This thesis explores the possibilities for form variation in romsdalsspringar, inspired by French traditions as well as traditions from Sunnmøre. These traditions represent two form principles: “vekvariasjon” and “motivvariasjon”. These principles are used to investigate how form affect style of playing. This assessment is based on “reflection in practice”, where the main findings is the process and reflection around transferring new form variations to a well-known musical material. As a basis for the experiments lies theory of improvisation and variability, as well as more or less established principles of form in Norwegian traditional music. The thesis attempts to show how a systematic approach and deriving of form principles from a music tradition can be transferred to another.
