Hi! I'm working in speech recognition, and am trying to be able to distinguish between speech and non-speech (especially music) sounds in an audio track. I wondered if anyone had any ideas (for example from a speech/music perception point of view) of the things that characterise music and speech. For example, is the periodicity important, or is it to do with continuity? How do we know when something is music and something is just noise? How does the brain recognise music, how can you recognise both music and speech if they are played at the same time.. If anyone has any ideas, or knows of any publications in this area, I'd be really interested.. thanks alot Sue Johnson (sej28(at)eng.cam.ac.uk) ------------------------------------------------------------------| | email sej28(at)eng.cam.ac.uk | | snail 6 Dalegarth, Hurst Park Avenue, Cambridge, CB4 2AG | | (01223) 574087 Lab: (01223) (3)32754 | | w/ends 28 Basset Way, Kidlington, OXON, OX5 2HJ (01865) 374 925 | | WWW http://www2.eng.cam.ac.uk/~sej28/home.html | |------------------------------------------------------------------|
