    Présentation

    · textes rassemblés par Dianne Hagaman
    · préface de Franck Leibovici

     

    Deux sociologues et musiciens de jazz patentés, Robert Faulkner et Howard Becker, discutent par voie électronique d'une activité qui occupe une part importante de leur vie : la musique. En vertu de la technologie employée, des échanges d'emails, chaque étape de la construction de leur pensée, les fausses pistes comme les idées fécondes, se voit inscrite, matérialisée. Aussi, quand, en 2010, Franck Leibovici les invite à contribuer à une enquête visant à lier, dans de nouvelles représentations, pratiques et « formes de vie », c’est leur correspondance que Becker et Faulkner choisissent de lui adresser.

     

    En même temps que l’enregistrement complet d’une collaboration scientifique, la publication de cet échange rend publique une image détaillées de ce que l’on appelle parfois « processus créatif ». L'écriture d'enquête ne consiste pas seulement à mettre bout à bout des chaînons d'idées rationnelles (ainsi que le format traditionnel de l'article scientifique tend à le faire croire) : elle combine, de façon plus ou moins complexe, des récits d'expériences passées, des jeux de mot, des anecdotes, des souvenirs, des arguments puisés par analogie dans d'autres contextes. Nous sommes ici avant le grand lissage.

    When Rob Faulkner and Howie Becker, two sociologists who were also experienced professionals in the music business, decided to write something about this other part of their lives, they lived at opposite ends of the North American continent: Faulkner in Massachusetts, Becker in San Francisco. They managed the cooperation writing a book requires through e-mail. Instead of sitting around talking, they wrote e-mails to each other.

    And so every step of their thinking, the false steps as well as the ideas that worked, existed in written form. So, when Franck Leibovici asked them to contribute something which showed the “form of life” that supported their work, they (helped along by a timely tip from Dianne Hagaman), they sent him the correspondence.

    The result is one of the most complete and revealing records of scientific collaboration ever made public. And one of the most intimate pictures of the creative process in all its details that anyone interested in that topic could ask for. Investigative writing is not only about formulating chains of rational ideas (as the usual format of scientific articles would like us to believe), but also mixes plays on words, stories, and arguments in new arrangements.

      “ new ebook by Howie Becker and Rob Faulkner: Thinking Together: An E-mail Exchange and All that Jazz”

      “What does it take to pull together a collaborative research project? Howie Becker and Rob Faulkner reveal all, via a reconstruction of their prolific email correspondence collected in a new ebook Thinking Together: An E-mail Exchange and All that Jazz. Prompted by the puzzling observation that younger musicians didn’t know the same repertoire of songs shared among older musicians, Becker and Faulkner, who are both practicing musicians, muscle through hammering out a research design and theoretical explanation for how musicians, including ones who have never practiced together before, can collectively perform.* Their exchanges evidence the gradual refinement of categories with plenty of links to songs, descriptions of illustrative experiences, and recounting of interviews with fellow musicians while practicing in the field.”
