The STACCATO project (ANR-19-CE38-0008-05, Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) is an interdisciplinary project falling within the themes of vibrotactile perception and digital and electroacoustic tools allowing its implementation. More precisely, the objectives of the project are 1) to explore the vibrotactile modality as sensory feedback for the perception of the sound event and the gestural control of instrumental interfaces in musical practice with people having or not sensory impairment, 2) to develop a system of vibrotactile signs and analyze its use in context for communication between musicians in collective musical playing situations, 3) to analyze in a comparative manner the functions of the vibrotactile modality for sensory feedback and for codified communication. The originality of the project lies in its aim to combine a technological approach (acoustics, engineering) and a psychological approach to the sensory experience. Another is to bring together teams with complementary skills and expertise in psychology, mechanics and acoustics, music, electroacoustics, digital technologies, signal processing, linguistics and speech analysis (LAM, Lutheries-Acoustique-Musique, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne Université ; Institut de Recherche en Musicologie, IReMus, UMR 3226, Sorbonne Université ; Unité Transversale de Recherche Psychogenèse et Psychopathologie, UTRPP, UR 4403, Université Sorbonne Paris Nord ; ISEN d'Électronique, de Microélectronique et de Nanotechnologie, IEMN, UMR 8520 Lille ; Praxiling, UMR 5267, Université Montpellier 3).

This research will be carried out with musicians and non-musicians (with and without sensory impairment). It consists of carrying out semi-structured individual interviews before and after two sessions of individual experimentation with the vibrotactile object. In parallel, two collective experiments with the vibrotactile object will be organized.

The mission of the recruited person will consist of: (1) helping to develop the protocol for collective experiments, (2) passing this protocol on to the participants and collecting the audio and video data during the experiment, (3) transcribe the data collected during the completion of this protocol using dedicated software (Praat, Clan, Elan), (4) annotate this data according to the different categories of analysis that will have been determined within the framework of the Staccato project, 5) analyze these data at the quantitative and qualitative levels and 6) disseminate and publish the results of these analyzes in collaboration with the other members of the ANR STACCATO.


- Coordination and implementation of the experimental protocol for collective experiences
- Participation in the data recording (audio and video)
- Management, transcription and analysis of data collected from this protocol
- Supervision of students (in Master's degree)
- Writing of scientific papers


- Knowledge in the field of linguistics and language data analysis
- Experience with language data transcription and processing software (e.g. Praat, CLAN, ELAN)
- Knowledge in the field of music and musicology
- Experience in setting up experimental studies

Operational skills
- Ability to work alone and in a team
- Dynamism and rigor
- Autonomy and initiatives
- Know how to organize an event
- Know how to promote the results of a study to different audiences

The candidate must be strongly motivated by work in an interdisciplinary field relating both to the collection of language data in a context of shared musical practice and in the design and implementation of experimental devices.

Work Context

The person recruited will be attached to the Praxiling Laboratory (UMR CNRS 5267) located at the University Paul Valéry Montpellier 3. Praxiling is a research laboratory in language sciences under the double supervision of the CNRS and the University Paul Valéry, Montpellier 3 which is made up of 49 members. The research carried out within the unit is mainly in discourse analysis, these being considered in their concrete conditions of production, that is to say constructed by subjects in interaction and linked to situated practices ("Praxis"). This conception of discourse is the basis of the analysis of linguistic functions and dynamics, developed by the Praxiling unit. Thus, the Praxiling laboratory is made up of linguists, phoneticians and anthropologists whose work is based, for the most part, on the exploitation of written and oral corpora exploited with the help of digital tools. More specifically, the recruited person will work on the research themes of ANR STACCATO (project ANR-19-CE38-0008-05; acronym: STACCATO; title: Vibrotactile mediation for shared musical practice) whose scientific coordinator is Hughes Genevois (LAM, UMR 7190, Institut d'Alembert, Sorbonne University) and the local coordinator for Praxiling Christelle Dodane (MCF HDR in phonetics).

Constraints and risks

The recruited person will work with all the members of the STACCATO project and more specifically in Montpellier, in close collaboration with the Praxiling team (UMR 5267). There are no particular constraints or risks associated with this work.
