About This PhD Project

Project Description

This project will consider the relationship of a singer with their accompaniment, including the musical relationship between the two performers and the direct but perhaps unconscious impact of the spectral characteristics of the accompanying force(s) on vocal production. This project will involve collection of qualitative data from performing singers and their accompanists as well as Music Information Retrieval (MIR) of data collected in controlled live performances. MIR may include spectral analysis, temporal analysis, vibrato analysis and electrolaryngograph analysis to assess various performance parameters being affected by both the accompanist and the instrument itself.
