Psycho-acoustic interpretation of vocal performance quality
The presentation will describe the frameworks (theoretical and experimental)
for the incorporation of an interactive-multimedia computer application into
a doctoral research project that investigates the psycho-acoustic
interpretation of vocal performance quality. Focus will be given on the
application of the Continuous Response Measurement Apparatus (CReMA), a
technology that has been devised specifically for this research project.
This new technology acts as a real-time n-point scale monitoring system of a
like/dislike continuum and is also collecting real-time pressure data that
is outside conscious awareness. Initial analyses of synchronised data that
have been recorded from the CReMA interface and a medical data acquisition
system will be presented. The group´s opinions regarding the potential uses
of such technology to other research projects as well as feedback and/or
criticism on the actual research design could play a critical role to the
finalization of this research project and also act as a meta-filter for the
`discussions´ part of the research!
