Abstract [en]

The paper will present the results from my licentiate thesis where the phenomenon of Singing Experience from a first-person perspective is treated. The purpose of the thesis was to reveal the content that constitutes the phenomenon of singing from the singers’ point of view. Singing should be understood as a unique vocal expression carried by tones in a form that is sonorous, alive and fluid. The singing is a singing in a context with others who also experiences them selves as singing. The point of departure of the investigation is a natural attitude which develops into a philosophical attitude towards the experience where given experiences are examined upon their content and then bracketed in favour for further experiences of the phenomenon to be revealed. The study uses a phenomenological approach from a first-person perspective based on Edmund Husserl’s transcendent phenomenology. These methods provide cogitations to stretch the particular situated momentary experience into the sphere of the possible experience. In the thesis the result of the eidetic study is described with its general essence a “musical vocal confirmation of my existence in the world” as well as a description of the constitution of the phenomenon of singing.

 

The presentation will initially briefly describe the entry to the study as well as the background and the method of gathering experiences and analysis of ditto. The main part of the presentation will focus on the results of the thesis i.e. a model of a constitution of the phenomenon of singing presented as a mind map where the relationship between essences is visualized. The main topic of the presentation will focus on three major findings. First of all the thoughts about the phenomenological body by Maurice Merleau-Ponty where the phenomenological body of the singer is an acoustic body spread out in time and space is presented. Second the findings of different aspects of experience and listening to one’s own voice is discussed. This finding suggests a possibility to tune in to an inner listening, an outer listening, an immanent listening or a combination of those three different listening modes. This particular result will explicit highlight Husserl’s thinking of pluralistic intentionality. Third, and final, the presentation will discuss the possibility for an extended version of the phenomenon of singing where transcendent dimension of experience emerges. These are dimensions stretched out into a trio of essences; love and humanity, music and thirdly, something divine. These essences, in existence, are experienced as subjects with have the power to act intersubjective with the singing subject of living body. The extension into the transcendent parts enriches and enlarges the phenomenon from a narrow into a widen phenomenon, which covers the possibility of different life-worlds within different singers.
