Om mig

Doktorand i musikvetenskap sedan september 2017. Master i humaniora med inriktning musikvetenskap från Uppsala Universitet med uppsatsen "Feel it in Your Body: Hybridization of Musical Habitus in Swedish Cultural-Educational Tourism to Ghana". Bachelor of Music with Distinction med inriktning världsmusik/musiketnologi från University of Alberta i Edmonton, Kanada. Huvudinstrument: eufonium.


The dissertation “Filling in the Beat in Rhythmically Multi-layered Pop” will show how the body is expected through unwritten social codes to fill in a beat that is musically absent or de-emphasized, and how physical responses to music are corporeal manifestations of these expectations. By examining which bodies do what, how and when, and taking into account social codes regarding the permissibility of bodies acting in a certain way, a broader analysis of the music in question is possible. The inclusion of the body interacting with music rhythmically in transcription with musical “scores” can provide a dimension often overlooked, while social analysis complements this with a larger context. The research question is thus, “How does the listening body interact with music, particularly in the acquisition of the beat; how does this interaction affect musical analysis, if at all; and what role does the body’s social context play in this interaction?”
