SUPERVISOR:Interesting. And you were looking at how performers dress for concertperformances?JOANNA:That's right. My research investigated the way players see their role as amusician and how this is linked to the type of clothing they decide to wear. Butthat focus didn't emerge immediately. When I started I was more interested in025 &26trying to investigate the impact of what was worn on those listening, and alsowhether someone like a violinist might adopt a different style of clothing from.025 &26say. someone playing the flute or the trumpet.SUPERVISOR:It's interesting that the choice of dress is up to the individual, isn't it?JOANNA:Yes, you'd expect there to be rules about it in orchestras, but that's quite rare.������:���---- �������=:�e�i:��:�:;:��i�a��0n�;��;·;;��-;��;-��:�:-��tr·······JOANNA:I think a lot of the men are very much influenced by fashion, but in social terms027the choices they have are more limited ... they'd really upset audiences if theystrayed away from quite narrow boundaries.SUPERVISOR:Hmm. Now, popular music has quite different expectations. Did you read MikeFrost's article about the dress of women performers in popular music?JOANNA:No.SUPERVISOR:He points out that a lot of female singers and musicians in popular music tend todress down in performances, and wear less feminine clothes, like jeans insteadof skirts, and he suggests this is because otherwise they'd just be discounted as028trivial.JOANNA:But you could argue they're just wearing what's practical ... I mean, a pop-musicconcert is usually a pretty energetic affair.SUPERVISOR:Yes, he doesn't make that point, but I think you're probably right. I wasinterested by the effect of the audience at a musical performance when it cameto the choice of dress.JOANNA:The subjects I interviewed felt this was really important. It's all to do with whatwe understand by performance as a public event. They believed the audience029had certain expectations and it was up to them as performers to fulfil theseexpectations. to show a kind of esteem ...SUPERVISOR:...they weren't afraid of looking as if they'd made an effort to look good.JOANNA:Mmm. I think in the past the audience would have had those expectations ofone another too, but that's not really the case now, not in the UK anyway.SUPERVISOR:No.JOANNA:And I also got interested in what sports scientists are doing too, with regard toclothing.121
AudioscriptsSUPERVISOR:Musicians are quite vulnerable physically, aren't they, because the movementsthey carry out are very intensive and repetitive, so I'd imagine some featuresQ30of sports clothing could safeguard the players from the potentially dangerouseffects of this sort of thing.JOANNA:Yes, but musicians don't really consider it. They avoid clothing that obviouslyrestricts their movements, but that's as far as they go.
