Bringing Drumsticks to Funerals. Jamming as Learning

1. jan. 2013

Af Lars Brinck

Through analysis of participant observation and qualitative interviews the study argues that the musicians' participation in collectively improvised musical practices such as jam sessions is characterized by the iterative discovery of new action possibilities in pursuing a collectively negotiated "common third": The good music.
