Disembodied Voice 

Interdisciplinary project in the fields of dramatics and computer music. A study about electro-acoustic transformations of the human voice in real time and its three-dimensional rendition by means of Ambisonics in the context of theater.

 

The ICST contributes to this project by evaluating and developing methodes for voice analysis (feature extraction) with the objective of assigning the data thus obtained as parameters to control the live electronics. Furthermore a set of terms is being established to acoustically and emotionally characterise the sound of the human voice. This set forms the basis of the questionnaire used in the series of tests.
