2021 Cerebral Cortex  
When these processes were probed by a paradigm more focused on basic sound features, we found early predictive pitch encoding to be facilitated by music training.  ...  Our results support the tight coupling of musical and linguistic brain functions also in the developing brain.  ...  L were also supported by the Beijing Brain Initiative of the Beijing Municipal Science & Technology Commission (Z181100001518003) and the NSFC (71834002).

Automatic Assessment Of Singing Voice Pronunciation: A Case Study With Jingju Music

Rong Gong, Xavier Serra
2018 Zenodo  
Jingju (also known as Beijing opera) music is one of the representative music traditions in China and has spread to many places in the world where there are Chinese communities.  ...  Automatic singing voice assessment, as an important task in Music Information Research (MIR), aims to extract musically meaningful information and measure the quality of learners' singing voice.  ...  The pairwise distance matrix represents the phoneme-level linguistic structure.  ...

Predictors of auditory performance in hearing‐aid users: The role of cognitive function and auditory lifestyle

Martin D. Vestergaard
2006 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
In the accompaniment music of Beijing opera singing, inharmonic sounds produced by the major bowed-string instrument ͑the jinghu͒ are sometimes called ''blossoming tones.''  ...  The spectra of blossoming tones can be viewed as high-pass noises, with the cutoff frequency of about 1.6 kHz. Blossoming tones are sophisticatedly used for emotional expressions in Beijing opera.  ...  These findings indicate that perceptual organization does play a role in the effects of an inducer tone on loudness judgments.  ...

Performance of optimized sound field control techniques in simulated and real acoustic environments

Philip Coleman, Martin Møller, Martin Olsen, Marek Olik, Philip Jackson, Jan Abildgaard Pedersen
2012 Journal of the Acoustical Society of America  
The older generation Chinese opera goers used the term ?going to listen opera??which well explains how they placed great demands on vocal performance.  ...  Responses to the site-visit investigation and internet questionnaire survey revealed that privacy-related problems were classified into 4 factors: physical environment (speech privacy), information sharing  ...  The CI technology used in the current commercial devices, in terms of both hardware and software, didn't focus on the delivery of tone or pitch related information.  ...

Voice Modeling Methods for Automatic Speaker Recognition

Thilo Stadelmann, Mathematik Und Informatik, Freisleben, Bernd (Prof. Dr.)
2011
For example, linguistic information (i.e., which phone or syllable has been uttered?) is found in very short time spans of only milliseconds of length.  ...  It stems from the fact that the speech signal conveys different aspects of the sound in a single, one-dimensional time series: linguistic (what is said?), prosodic (how is it said?)  ...  On the other hand, it is necessary to look at the speech signal on different time scales: linguistic information is contained in it in every millisecond; yet, speaker based information unfolds as longer  ...
