Semantic Description of Timbral Transformations in Music Production

Ryan Stables, Brecht De Man, Sean Enderby, Joshua D. Reiss, György Fazekas, Thomas Wilmering
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 ACM on Multimedia Conference - MM '16  
In music production, descriptive terminology is used to define perceived sound transformations.  ...  In this study, we present an analysis of a dataset containing descriptive terms gathered using a series of processing modules, embedded within a Digital Audio Workstation.  ...  This allows for the development of intuitive and assistive music production interfaces, based on descriptive cues.  ...

Semantic Dimensions of Sound Mass Music

Jason Noble, Etienne Thoret, Max Henry, Stephen McAdams
2020 Music Perception  
Some aspects of participants' descriptions of their rating strategies appear to be reflected in their numerical ratings. We sought quantitative bases for these associations in the acoustic signals.  ...  This result suggests that semantic interpretations of music may involve qualities or attributes that are objectively present in the music, since computer simulation can use sound signals to partially reconstruct  ...  dimensions of musical timbre (Zacharakis & Pastiadis, 2016; Zacharakis, Pastiadis, & Reiss, 2012 , and semantic or narrative accounts of specific repertoires including commercial production music (Huovinen  ...

The beauty of sound: Timbre as grounds for aesthetic and artistic value in music

Ben Mc Hugh, Nicholas Wiltsher
2022 Zenodo  
I argue that timbre should be thought of as providing the grounds for artistic and aesthetic values in music.  ...  To this end and firstly, I critique the physical sense of timbre in favour of two anti-realist senses of timbre.  ...  Musical performers as timbral agents play a substantial role in cases where timbral ambiguity in notation is present.  ...

Unifying Low-Level and High-Level Music Similarity Measures

D. Bogdanov, J. Serra, N. Wack, P. Herrera, X. Serra
2011 IEEE transactions on multimedia  
In this paper, we propose three of such distance measures based on the audio content. First, a low-level measure based on tempo-related description.  ...  Second, a high-level semantic measure based on the inference of different musical dimensions by support vector machines.  ...  In general, the hybrid distance represents a combinative approach, benefiting from timbral, rhythmic, and high-level semantic aspects of music similarity.  ...

Listening Through the Firewall: Semiotics of sound in networked improvisation

Roger Mills, Kirsty Beilharz
2012 Organised Sound  
TIMBRAL SEMANTICS AND SIGNIFIERS Timbre deserves particular attention as a signifier and semantic carrier of meaning in the context of intercultural networked improvisation.  ...  The research opens the way for further investigation of semiotic, semantic, cognitive and timbral analysis in order to understand the range of intercultural musical dialogues facilitated by network technologies  ...

Paralinguistic singing attribute recognition using supervised machine learning for describing the classical tenor solo singing voice in vocal pedagogy

Yanze Xu, Weiqing Wang, Huahua Cui, Mingyang Xu, Ming Li
2022 EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech, and Music Processing  
In vocal pedagogy, vocal teachers listen and then describe the timbral phenomena of their student's singing voice.  ...  AbstractHumans can recognize someone's identity through their voice and describe the timbral phenomena of voices. Likewise, the singing voice also has timbral phenomena.  ...  This paper's remainder is as follows: Section 2 gives a description of SVQTD and its production pipeline.  ...

Navigating Descriptive Sub-Representations Of Musical Timbre

Spyridon Stasis, Jason Hockman, Ryan Stables
2017 Zenodo  
Musicians, audio engineers and producers often make use of common timbral adjectives to describe musical signals and transformations.  ...  In this study, a model is proposed for controlling an equaliser by navigating clusters of datapoints, which represent grouped parameter settings with the same timbral description.  ...  metadata, and a description of the sound transformation.  ...

An Investigation Of Musical Timbre: Uncovering Salient Semantic Descriptors And Perceptual Dimensions

Asteris I. Zacharakis, Konstantinos Pastiadis, Georgios Papadelis, Joshua D. Reiss
2011 Zenodo  
It is widely applied in musical timbre research in order to reduce a large number of semantic descriptions to a smaller number of interpretable factors.  ...  Subsequently, such a developed semantic framework could be deployed in a semantically driven framework of audio signal processing with application in musical sound synthesis, audio post-production or other  ...

Incrementally improving interactive music systems

Robert Rowe
1996 Contemporary Music Review  
Particularly for interactive music systems, those meant to perform with human players onstage in contexts that may include improvisation, such concepts are essential.  ...  There are strong musical motivations for current efforts to transfer the human concepts underlying musicianship to computer programs.  ...  The Fourier Transform can give quite accurate descriptions of the spectral content of a sound. This accuracy is constrained, however, when the transform must be performed in real time.  ...
