Clement Canonne

I’m a CNRS senior researcher and Head of the « Analysis of Musical Practices » team at Ircam.

My research has been mainly focused on collective improvisation, bringing perspectives from ethnography and experimental psychology to understand the musicians' cognitive and interactional processes, and, more generally, shed new light on joint action and social cognition. This work has been published extensively in journals such as Cognition, Cognitive Science, Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, Music Theory Online, Psychology of Music, Journal of Social Ontology and Journal of New Music Research. Current and future research topics include desynchronization, musical humor, sonic games, auditory attention, and empirical aesthetics.
