Victor A. Stoichiță is an anthropologist at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS). In Fabricants d’émotion (2008) he investigated notions of “tricks”, “cunning”, and “slyness” used by Romanian Roma musicians in relation to musical structures. He later worked on virtuosity, intellectual property, irony in live musical settings. He published a Romani songbook for pedagogical use (Chants tsiganes de Roumanie, 2010). His current research deals with the ontology of musical experience and the distributions of agency between humans and sound structures.
