Vowel Shapes and Computer Analysis
Date: March 29, 2014
A collaboration between the University of Rochester Computer Science and Eastman School of Music departments has come up with an interesting vocal teaching tool:
Obviously analyzing one voice is far different than analyzing a whole ensemble, but this idea of visually demonstrating aural information opens up a lot of possibilites in teaching and conducting. Also, I'm intrigued by the idea that it compares the student performance not to an "ideal" but to the teacher's performance.
What do you think about this project? What would you like to see a program like this analyze or display about a singer or ensemble?
