Acoustic profiles in emotion - the GEMEP corpus

Martijn Goudbeek, Klaus. R Scherer

The first basic acoustic measurements on a new corpus of acted emotional expressions are presented. The corpus has been constructed in an attempt to bridge the divide between naturalistic emotional expressions, laboratory inductions, and acted expressions. The corpus contains a large number of emotions (including some rarely studied ones) that have been elicited from professional actors in interactive sessions. Acoustic measurements of duration, fundamental frequency, intensity and voice quality parameters are presented. The results show reliable effects for emotional expression, mostly confirming predictions. The structure in the data and the future applications of the corpus are discussed.
