Mesurer les musiques pour parler du passé : la comparaison des musiques du Gabon comme source d'informations historiques

Abstract : Gabonese music differs in several important ways from other Central African musics, especially music from Cameroon and Central African Republic. This could be due to the complex history of populations in this area. The history of these musics, almost unknown up to now, could help better understand the history of the people playing them. This thesis investigates the use of historical inference methods, indepndently developed in philology, in biological systematics and in historical linguistics, in order to discover the history of musics and populations. I analyse a dataset obtained through the analysis (thanks to the tools of musical systematics) of almost 200 voco-instrumental pieces collected in 20 different populations from various regions of Gabon. This investigation raises interesting empirical and theoretical questions concerning the use of music as historical source, but also concerning the practice of interdisciplinarity.
