music research through dispositif design

This post-scriptum relates my personal reflections on transdiscipinary research led during my PhD thesis and beyond.

It builds on real-world musical situations of practice with machine learning to reflect on the research led in the thesis. It discusses the balances made between intersecting perspectives from Music and Machine Learning. It presents three art and design projects led in parallel of the thesis—Paroles d’Exil, Sound Control, & (lutheries)²—, which challenge the norms of these disciplines. It finally delineates a music research through design framework, leveraging the theoretical notion of interactive music dispositif to ground AI music practices in their situated cultural environment.


The project was developed with Frédéric Bevilacqua in collaboration with the ISMM group of IRCAM, in the context of the Sorbonne Université Doctorate in Computer Science.
