2008
Fabricants d’émotion. Musique et malice dans un village tsigane de Roumanie
Nanterre: Société d’ethnologie, coll. "Hommes et Musiques"; 230 pages, with a multimedia DVD.
The book concentrates the work developped in my doctoral thesis. By combining ethnography with musical analysis, it aims to shed a light on concepts of «cunning» and «slyness», as seen by Rroma (Gypsy) professional musicians in Romania. The book focuses on the link which binds cleverness to a certain conception of pleasure, emotion and group belonging. It is targetted at a large audience. Many visual, musical and interactive documents are presented on the attached DVD.
A detailed description is available on my website.
