French musical observatory
Senior of the research centres musicologic in the French university, the musical Observatory French (OMF), established with the University Paris IV (Paris-Sorbonne), was recognized by the ministry in charge of research in 1989.
Placé under the direction of Daniele Pistone, the French musical Observatory (OMF) federates six groups of research:
- Esthetic and musical theory,
- musicologic Languages,
- Jazz, song, popular musics modern,
- Musicology, data processing and new technologies,
- Music, company, teaching and cognition,
- Music and visual arts.
Extremely representative of the current trends, the French musical Observatory often works in multiple, difficult ways in a time of changes where the transdisciplinarity grows rich by all these contributions, but diverts itself dangerously sometimes to yield to new seductions. After the Linguistique comes the hermeneutics, the Psychanalyse succeed readily the cognitive Sciences among the choices carried out by musicology. This one appears definitely always more plural, and it is this pluralism even as the team of the researchers of the OMF wants to defend through her new design of “intégrative musicology”, multiform force which one always hopes for growing.
Since its creation, the French musical Observatory organized 80 conferences or days of studies, mainly devoted to musical France, and takes part in the activities of the Interarts Seminar of Paris (ED. Klincksieck, " The University of Arts") for which it had during six years the responsibility.
Some 150 doctors were already trained at the Observatory more of the third of them are currently active in research centres or French or foreign universities.
Publications of the OMF
If the researchers of the OMF direct many reviews and collections in other editors (Honore Champion, Minerve, the Harmattan, J. - M. Place, PUPS…), the French musical Observatory also develops in the Sorbonne a leading activity through various series referring to the broad research topics led by its teams. Its reading panel is composed of: Mario d' Angelo, Michele Beard, Marc Battier, Danielle Cohen-Levinas, Laurent Cugny, François Madurell, Danièle Pistone, Hyacinthe Ravet, Catherine Rudent. This work is distributed by the ED. Auguste Zurfluh.
The publications of the OMF are presented in the form of series sets of themes:
- Series Activities and institutions

- Correspondences, talks and memories
- Didactic Series of the music
- Current Series Jazz, song, popular musics
- Series musicologic Languages
- Series Music and visual arts
- Series Music and new technologies
- Series Sociology of the musical facts
- Series Testimonys
In addition, the review Musicologies (annual), published since 2004, reflects the tendency to the diversity and the widening of the corpora and the methods of research which is anchored always more in musicology. " Never musicology was as much an interface only in these times when reign contextualisation and interpenetration, interbreeding and crossover" writing Daniele Pistone in the n° 3 of Musicologies in 2006.
