Towards multisensory control of physical modeling synthesis @ Inter-Noise

Physical models of musical instruments offer an interesting tradeoff between computational efficiency and perceptual fidelity. Yet, they depend on a multidimensional space of user-defined parameters whose exploration by trial and error is impractical. Our article addresses this issue by combining two ideas: query by example and gestural control. On one hand, we train a deep… Continue reading Towards multisensory control of physical modeling synthesis @ Inter-Noise

An interactive bi-objective optimisation process to guide the design of electric vehicle warning sounds @ Design Science

Abstract Electric vehicles (EVs) are very quiet at low speed, which can be hazardous for pedestrians, especially visually impaired people. It is now mandatory (since mid-2019 in Europe) to add external warning sounds, but poor sound design can lead to noise pollution, and consequently annoyance. Moreover, it is possible that EVs are not sufficiently detectable… Continue reading An interactive bi-objective optimisation process to guide the design of electric vehicle warning sounds @ Design Science
