Subject: Speech/song experiment From: David Gerhard <dbg(at)cs.sfu.ca> Date: Thu, 26 Apr 2001 17:46:36 -0700
Hello Auditory list, With so much traffic on the list these days, it is either a very good time or a very bad time to start a new thread. Regardless... I am running an experiment on the perceptual differences and fuzzy domain between human speech and human singing, and I would like to invite all of you to participate in (and comment on) this experiment. The experiment consists of an on-line survey, where subjects listen to ambiguous sound samples and rate them between speaking and singing. The experiment is at http://www.cs.sfu.ca/speech The samples are taken from a copus I recently collected of ~1000 samples of people talking, singing and making intermediate vocalizations. Subjects sang and spoke the same lyrics, and responded to various prompts. I also gathered samples from various published sources (with the appropriate copyright considerations). Can anyone give me advice as to what journal might be good in which to publish a paper about such a corpus? Cheers, -David.
