Dear Auditory List, We are doing research on the acoustic and perceptual relationship of speech sounds and drum sounds in North Indian tabla music. In this tradition, spoken nonsense syllables are used to label drum sounds. This way, players can communicate drum sequences either by playing them or by speaking the associated syllables. We want to know if it's possible for people who don't know Indian music to guess which syllable goes with which drum sound. We would like to invite anyone who is interested to try a web experiment in which you match spoken syllables to drum sounds. This web experiment is not being used to collect data for publication (we are doing a lab study for that purpose). Rather, we are interested in the acoustic and perceptual cues people use to make their decisions, and invite your feedback on this issue (via a questionnaire at the end of the experiment). Here is a link to the experiment: http://www.nsi.edu/tablaexp Please feel free to pass on this invitation to anyone who might be interested. Apologies for cross-postings.
