Ecological Acoustics Perspective for Content-Based Retrieval of Environmental Sounds

Gerard Roma, Jordi Janer, Stefan Kersten, Mattia Schirosa, Perfecto Herrera, Xavier Serra
2010 EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech, and Music Processing  
In this paper we present a method to search for environmental sounds in large unstructured databases of user-submitted audio, using a general sound events taxonomy from ecological acoustics.  ...  We discuss the use of Support Vector Machines to classify sound recordings according to the taxonomy and describe two use cases for the obtained classification models: a content-based web search interface  ...  In this situation, content-based retrieval methods could be a valuable tool for sound search and selection.  ...

New Directions in Soundscape-based Sound-Art: Hybridising Autoethnography with Computational Analysis

Barrett Natasha
2021 Zenodo  
In this paper I have chosen to focus on the affordances of spatial sound in outdoor environments framed in a musical perspective.  ...  The work draws on the perceptual theories of Gibson and Ingold, and on the possibilities that computational tools such as 3D sound decomposition and music information retrieval have to offer.  ...  The extent of the materials calls for new methods for exploring content and meaning. Hybridising autoethnography and computational analysis Artistic research on the sound landscape is common.  ...

Improving Audio Retrieval through Content and Metadata Categorization

Sanjeel Parekh
2015 Zenodo  
In this thesis we look to improve audio retrieval through content and metadata categorization in the context of Freesound. For content, we focus on organization through morphological description.  ...  Audio content sharing on online platforms has become increasingly popular. This necessitates development of techniques to better organize and retrieve this data.  ...  This organization is from the ecological and physical perspective. For any non-ecological sound such an organization would pose difficulties.  ...

Soundscape planning as a complement to environmental noise control

A.L. Brown
2015 Noise News International  
Soundscape planning and management augments environmental noise management, expanding the scope for application of the tools of acoustic specialists.  ...  Quiet is not a core condition for acoustic preference in the outdoor acoustic environment, but congruence of soundscape and landscape is.  ...  However, this is not the case as much work in environmental noise is also perceptually based-as in the measurement of noise annoyance for example.  ...
