Hans Tutschku: Connection of Gesture and Space

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 23:52
Date:  Wed, 04/08/2015 - 5:15pm - 7:00pm Location:  Listening Room Event Type:  Guest Colloquium

The physical gesture of instrumentalists and dancers has been of great interest to me over the past 25 years. My musical education on the piano and later with live-electronics taught me aspects of music-making long before I thought to compose. Any music I have written, be it for instruments, singers or electronic sources, is searching for the expression of gestural phrasing, relationships between cause and effect (and their negation) and a plausibility carried over from our experiences outside of music.

Naomi Harte - ViSWOL, An objective measure for speech quality

CCRMA-Stanford University - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 02:09
Date:  Fri, 05/01/2015 - 11:00am - 12:30pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room (Top Floor of the Knoll) Event Type:  Hearing Seminar

This talk gives an overview of ViSQOL – the Virtual Speech Quality Objective Listener. It is a signal-based, full-reference, intrusive metric that models human speech quality perception using a spectro-temporal measure of similarity between a reference and a test speech signal. The metric has been designed to be particularly robust for quality issues associated with Voice over IP (VoIP) transmission. The talk will explore how the original idea for associating visual similarity with spectrogram changes developed. I’ll show results from a full evaluation of the metric against PESQ and POLQA in a range of scenarios, including how it handles VoIP degradations.
