Abstract

The current study addresses the fragmented nature of the music performance literature, exploring the phenomenon holistically. Interpretive phenomenological analysis of semi-structured interviews with 5 musicians was conducted exploring their experiences of live music performance. Using a model emergent from data, the study finds a superordinate theme of ‘more than the music’ addressing relevant features of performance beyond the music itself. ‘Audience engagement’ and the ‘cultural embedding’ of performance are discussed as salient subthemes. The implications of these findings are discussed with an emphasis on future research.
