The hyperbar voice as a musical sound

D. Arfib, R. Kronland-Martinet

Sound processing is a part of computer music and has been developed to make transformation of natural sounds in a musical way. Specifically, at the Laboratoire de Mécanique et d'Acoustique of the CNRS in Marseille, we have developped a musical software toolbox to make such manipulations using time- frequency representations as an intermediate state between analysis and synthesis. The specificity of this research is that it uses parameters which are directely related to the way people hear. One musical transformation usually named crossed synthesis separates for each sound a "source" part and a "resonance" part. If the resonance part of the sound is warped in the frequency domain, and applied to the source part of the same sound, this technique can be used to "rectify" the hyperbar voice.
