Abstract [en]

Performing musician programmes around Europe currently find themselves in a phase of change. While the main concern of higher music education (HME) has been to educate musicians and composers for a profession where conceptions of craftsmanship and artistic skill were given, new conditions for employability and processes of academization are now challenging this expert culture. Since the Bologna declaration 1999 music institutions must stimulate research activities within the context of artistic practice. Musical expertise is not enough for today’s music profession.  

This paper draws on the on-going comprehensive three-year study DAPHME (Discourses of Academization and the Music Profession in Higher Music Education) conducted by a team of senior researchers in Sweden, Norway and Germany. By focusing discourses in HME the project explores contrasting perspectives on performing musicians’ expertise and societal mandate. Data are gathered through official documents and interviews with institutional leaders and teachers in HME across Europe.

Based on the analysis of about 30 interviews we present and discuss what constitutes notions of competence, knowledge and research activities within HME. Findings indicate that ‘artistic research’ is acknowledged as the main way of enquiry in art but also that there are significant negotiations and renegotiations within and between different individual institutions. These debates relate to ontological questions on what (artistic) research is and epistemological questions on how knowledge is formed and transferred.

There are contradictory ideas on whether or not artistic work needs textual supplements to become ‘research’. Either of these positions influences the content and organisation of teaching in HME. As an example of this, we focus on how critical reflection as a concept is discussed and negotiated in relation to research and artistic practice in undergraduate education.
