Guillaume Laroche devotes his research time to music, law, and interdisciplinary topics at the intersection of these two fields. In music, his work emphasizes the analysis and modelling of compositional techniques in post-1950 art and vernacular music, most notably video game soundtracks. In law, he researches intellectual property, language rights, and education law. At the intersection of music and law, his work broadly encompasses how copyright conceives of musical creativity. As a recipient of major scholarships from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Fondation Baxter & Alma Ricard, Guillaume earned a Master of Arts in music from McGill University and a Master of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School. A public school educator by profession, he remains active as a musician by performing as a pianist and singer, conducting ensembles and composing new works.
