Sketching sounds: an exploratory study on sound-shape associations [article]

Sebastian Löbbers, Mathieu Barthet, György Fazekas
2021 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents an exploratory study that asked participants to sketch visual imagery of sounds with a monochromatic digital drawing interface, with the aim to identify different representational approaches  ...  A large body of research shows consistency in human associations between sounds and shapes. However, the use of drawings to drive sound synthesis has not been explored to its full extent.  ...  Audio Feature Extraction In order to investigate sound-shape associations through statistical analysis, the sound stimuli also have to be described with quantitative features.  ...
