Research interests

Victor A. Stoichiță is an anthropologist specialized in the study of musical interactions. His PhD thesis and first book (Fabricants d'émotion, published in 2008) investigates the notions of "tricks", "cunning" and "slyness" used by Romanian Roma musicians in relation to musical structures. He later worked on virtuosity, intellectual property, irony and humor in live musical settings, and also published a Romani songbook for pedagogical use (Chants tsiganes de Roumanie, 2011). His current research deals with the ontological assumptions underlying musical experience and with the distributions of agency between humans and sonic structures.
