RAMCESS/HandSketch : A Multi-Representation Framework for Realtime and Expressive Singing Synthesis

Nicolas D’Alessandro, Thierry Dutoit

Laboratoire de Théorie des Circuits et Traitement du Signal, Faculté Polytechnique de Mons, Belgium

In this paper we describe the different investigations that are part of the development of a new singing digital musical instrument, adapted to real-time performance. It concerns improvement of low-level synthesis modules, mapping strategies underlying the development of a coherent and expressive control space, and the building of a concrete bi-manual controller.
