About this exposition

In this thesis I explore motivic development to see what effect it has on my improvisation. This exposition will summarize the studies I have done at the NoCoM master program at the Academy of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden. I will present my reflections, ideas, audio clips and experiments. The work is divided into two main parts where the first one will describe the process of how I work with the eight different techniques to develop motives. The second part is the investigation of how I use motivic development as a foundation to improvise and compose. My conclusion is that motivic development can bring direction, structure and my personal sound into my improvisations. It is a great way for me to set up rules and limitations to make it easier for the listener to follow my intension.
