    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Audio Description for film and television is a pre-recorded track that uses verbal descriptions to provide information on visual aspects of a film or TV programme. In the UK it is currently the only accessibility strategy available for visually impaired audiences and although it provides access to a large number of people, its shortcomings also fail to engage others in audiovisual experiences. The Enhancing Audio Description project explores how digital audio technologies can be applied to the creation of alternatives to Audio Description with the aim of personalising access strategies. Such personalisation would allow users to select the method utilised to access audiovisual experiences, by having choices that include traditional forms of accessibility as well as sound design based methods. The present article analyses the results of a survey and focus groups in which visually impaired participants discussed the advantages and disadvantages of AD and it demonstrates not only the diversity of experiences and needs of visually impaired groups but also their eagerness for change.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    This paper describes features in the ear shape that change across a population of ears and explores the corresponding changes in ear acoustics. The statistical analysis conducted over the space of ear shapes uses a kernel principal component analysis (KPCA). Further, it utilizes the framework of large deformation diffeomorphic metric mapping and the vector space that is constructed over the space of initial momentums, which describes the diffeomorphic transformations from the reference template ear shape. The population of ear shapes examined by the KPCA are 124 left and right ear shapes from the SYMARE database that were rigidly aligned to the template (population average) ear. In the work presented here we show the morphological variations captured by the first two kernel principal components, and also show the acoustic transfer functions of the ears which are computed using fast multipole boundary element method simulations.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    Spatial audio content for headphones is often created using binaural rendering of a virtual loudspeaker array. It is important to understand the effect of this choice on the sound quality. A sensory profiling evaluation was used to assess the perceived differences between direct binaural rendering and virtual loudspeaker rendering of a single sound source with and without head tracking and using anechoic and reverberant binaural impulse responses. A subset of the Spatial Audio Quality Inventory (SAQI) was used. Listeners first selected only attributes that they felt applied to the given stimuli. Initial analysis shows that tone colour and source direction are most affected by the use of this technique, but source extent, distance, and externalisation are also affected. Further work is required to analyse the sparse attribute rating data in depth.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    Head and torso simulators are used extensively within acoustic research, often in place of human subjects in time-consuming or repetitive experiments. Particularly common is the Knowles Electronics Manikin for Acoustic Research (KEMAR), which has the acoustic auditory properties of an average human head. As an alternative to physical acoustic measurements, the boundary element method (BEM) is widely used to calculate the propagation of sound using computational models of a scenario. Combining this technique with a compatible 3D surface mesh of KEMAR would allow for detailed binaural analysis of speaker distributions and decoder design – without the disadvantages associated with making physical measurements. This paper details the development and validation of a BEM-compatible mesh model of KEMAR, based on the original computer-aided design (CAD) file and valid up to 20 kHz. Use of the CAD file potentially allows a very close match to be achieved between the mesh and the physical manikin. The mesh is consistent with the original CAD description, both in terms of overall volume and of local topology, and the numerical requirements for BEM compatibility have been met. Computational limitations restrict usage of the mesh in its current state, so simulation accuracy cannot as yet be compared with acoustically measured HRTFs. Future work will address the production of meshes suitable for use in BEM with lower computational requirements, using the process validated in this work.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    This paper describes the generation of a morphable model for external ear shapes. The aim for the morphable model is to characterize an ear shape using only a few parameters in order to assist the study of morphoacoustics. The model is derived from a statistical analysis of a population of 58 ears from the SYMARE database. It is based upon the framework of large deformation diffeomorphic metric mapping (LDDMM) and the vector space that is constructed over the space of initial momentums describing the diffeomorphic transformations. To develop a morphable model using the LDDMM framework, the initial momentums are analyzed using a kernel based principal component analysis. In this paper, we examine the ability of our morphable model to construct test ear shapes not included in the principal component analysis.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    We describe optimal cue mapping (OCM), a potentially real-time binaural signal processing method for segregating a sound source in the presence of multiple interfering 3D sound sources. Spatial cues are extracted from a multisource binaural mixture and used to train artificial neural networks (ANNs) to estimate the spectral energy fraction of a wanted speech source in the mixture. Once trained, the ANN outputs form a spectral ratio mask which is applied frame-by-frame to the mixture to approximate the magnitude spectrum of the wanted speech. The speech intelligibility performance of the OCM algorithm for anechoic sound sources is evaluated on previously unseen speech mixtures using the STOI automated measures, and compared with an established reference method. The optimized integration of multiple cues offers clear performance benefits and the ability to quantify the relative importance of each cue will facilitate computationally efficient implementations.

    The menu is an important interface component, which appears unlikely to be completely superseded by modern search-based approaches. For someone who is unable to attend a screen visually, however, alternative non-visual menu formats are often problematic. A display is developed in which multiple concurrent words are presented with different amounts of onset asynchrony. The effect of different amounts of asynchrony and word length on task durations, accuracy and workload are explored. It is found that total task duration is significantly affected by both onset asynchrony and word duration. Error rates are significantly affected by both onset asynchrony, word length and their interaction, whilst subjective workload scores are only significantly affected by onset asynchrony. Overall, the results appear to suggest that the best compromise between accuracy, workload and speed may be achieved through presenting shorter or temporally-compressed words with a short inter-stimuli interval.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    A new head-related transfer function (HRTF) smoothing algorithm is presented. HRTF magnitude responses are expressed on an equivalent rectangular bandwidth frequency scale and smoothing is increased by progressively discarding the higher frequency Fourier coefficients. A sagittal plane localization model was used to assess the degree of spectral smoothing that can be applied without significant increase in localization error. The results of the localization model simulation were compared with results from a previous perceptual investigation using an algorithm that discards coefficients on a linear frequency scale. Our findings suggest that using a perceptually motivated frequency scale yields similar localization performance using fewer than half the number of coefficients.

    When validating systems that use headphones to synthesise virtual soundsources, a direct comparison between virtual and real sources is sometimes needed. This paper considers the passive influence of headphones on the sound transmission and perception of external loudspeaker sources, for which physical measurements and behavioral data have been obtained. Physical measurements of the effect of a number of headphone models are given and analysed using an auditory filter bank and binaural cue extraction. These highlighted that all of the headphones had an effect on localisation cues and repositioning had a measurable effect. A localisation test was undertaken using one of the best performing headphones from the measurements. It was found thatthe presence of the headphones caused a small increase in localisation error and that the process of judging source location was different, highlighting a possible increase in the complexity of the localisation task.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    This paper introduces a database of freely available stereo-3D content designed to facilitate research in stereo post-production. It describes the structure and content of the database and provides some details about how the material was gathered. The database includes examples of many of the scenarios characteristic to broadcast footage. Material was gathered at different locations including a studio with controlled lighting and both indoor and outdoor on-location sites with more restricted lighting control. The database also includes video sequences with accompanying 3D audio data recorded in an Ambisonics format. An intended consequence of gathering the material is that the database contains examples of degradations that would be commonly present in real-world scenarios. This paper describes one such artefact caused by uneven exposure in the stereo views, causing saturation in the over-exposed view. An algorithm for the restoration of this artefact is proposed in order to highlight the usefuiness of the database.

    This paper presents a subjective assessment of the plausibility of a non-individualised dynamic binaural sound system, created using a dataset of binaural room impulse responses measured with a dummy head microphone. A signal detection theory analysis was carried out on the results, to assess the sensory difference between the simulation and reality. The design and objective validation of the system is also presented. A small but meaningful sensory difference was observed between real and binaurally simulated loudspeaker sounds.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    This paper describes a method to establish an average human ear shape across a population of ears by se-quentially applying the Large Deformation Diffeomorphic Metric Mapping (LDDMM) framework at successively smaller physical scales. Determining such a population average ear shape, also referred to here as a template ear, is an essential step in studying the statistics of ear shapes because it allows the variations in ears to be studied relative to a common template shape. Our interest in the statistics of ear shapes stems from our desire to understand the relationship between ear morphology and the head-related impulse response (HRIR) filters that are essential for rendering 3D audio over headphones. The shape of the ear varies among listeners and is as individualized as a fingerprint. Because the acoustic filtering properties of the ears depend on their shape, the HRIR filters required for rendering 3D audio are also individualized. The contribution of this work is the demonstration of a sequential multiscale approach to creating a population template ear shape using the LDDMM framework. In particular we apply our sequential multiscale algorithm to a small population of synthetic ears in order to analyse its performance given a known reference ear shape.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Perceptually vibrato is known to be an important characteristic in choral singing, with conductors specifically directing singers in their use of vibrato when considering ‘choral blend’, tuning, expression and taste. Particularly in Renaissance and Baroque repertoire vibrato is conventionally used as an ornament, and current convention in vocal ensemble performance is to restrict the use of vibrato for musical affect at specific moments in the music, such as at the resolution of a suspension. Whilst vibrato in solo singing is well-researched, consideration of vibrato behaviour of individuals in an ensemble setting is still in its infancy. This is in part due to the difficulty of isolating the individual voices for analysis. In order to construct a method for analysing vocal characteristics of individual singers within a group, a protocol was designed and pilot tested. Laryngograph and audio recordings were made of student vocal quartets from the University of York. The laryngograph data for each singer was analysed to extract fundamental frequency data. The fundamental frequency data was then used to analyse vibrato characteristics of the individual singers, considering in particular adapting vibrato for ‘choral blend’ and the use of vibrato as a musical ornament in suspensions. The perceptual relevance of the vibrato behaviour was assessed through a listening test. The results of vibrato characteristics of individual singers are considered alongside their perceptual relevance. The accuracy of the data is also considered alongside the implications of applying this protocol to analyse other vocal characteristics in choral singers.

    When validating systems that use headphones to synthesise virtual sound sources, a direct comparison between virtual and real sources is sometimes needed. This paper presents objective and subjective measurements of the influence of headphones on external loudspeaker sources. Objective measurements of the effect of a number of headphone models are given and analysed using an auditory filter bank and binaural cue extraction. Objective results highlight that all of the headphones had an effect on localisation cues. A subjective localisation test was undertaken using one of the best performing headphones from the measurements. It was found that the presence of the headphones caused a small increase in localisation error but also that the process of judging source location was different, highlighting a possible increase in the complexity of the localisation task.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    The baroque trumpet like many reconstructed or original historical instruments is very difficult to play compared to its modern day equivalent. It is commonly accepted that historically informed performances need a specialist baroque trumpeter performing on a specialist instrument in order to achieve the desired sound. Particularly, there are certain timbral characteristics and expectations concerning the range of dynamics employed that are highlighted by today’s early music conductors and players as being unique to and expected of the baroque trumpet. An opportunity arose to record a world-renowned baroque trumpeter playing original trumpets from 1780, 1788, 1912 and 1967 in the fully (6-sided) acoustic anechoic chamber at the University of York. Due to his strong instinct as a player that the mouthpiece is the most significant timbral characteristic of the instrument, performances on the later two trumpets were recorded using two different mouthpieces. The spectral characteristics of each of the instruments and the impact of changing the mouthpiece are analysed in terms of the spectral correlates of audible differences integral to the sound quality of each.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]

    Previous studies on the pitch of long-duration vibrato tones have typically used synthesised modulator tones to assess the perceived pitch in relation to its arithmetic or geometric mean fundamental frequency. In this study a listening test was conducted with expert listener subjects matching recorded vibrato tones sung by professional singers using a method of adjustment and free response paradigm as employed by van Besouw et al. Example tones selected from recordings by 16 singers were used in the test, 8 of whom were employed at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and the remaining singers specialised in Early Music Performance. A previous study by Daffern (2008) in the vibrato usage by these singers shows a noticeable use difference in the use of vibrato between these performance groups, particularly in extent throughout long tones. The impact of these differences in vibrato will be assessed in terms of the perception of fundamental frequency in long tones as performed by the two groups of singer, and the effectiveness of using real recordings to assess listener perception of vibrato tones will be discussed.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    We present a frequency domain technique for investigating the relationship between acoustic properties of the human hearing system and the morphology responsible for creating them. Exploiting reciprocity, the boundary element method is applied to determine head-related transfer functions (HRTFs) for various directions and distances from a surface mesh model of a head and pinnae. Small orthogonal surface harmonic deformations are applied to the mesh one at a time and stored in a database together with the resulting, approximately linear, changes to the HRTFs (delta HRTFs). Once the computationally intensive process of constructing the database has been completed, identifying the morphological origins of arbitrary acoustic spectral features is very rapid. The method, which we term morphoacoustic perturbation analysis in the frequency domain (MPA-FD), is outlined and a proof-of-principle implementation described. MPA-FD is demonstrated by using it to determine the regions of the pinna responsible for determining the centre frequency of an HRTF notch and a peak. The predictions show good agreement with direct acoustic measurements.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract] [Download PDF]

    Crosstalk cancellation provides a means of delivering binaural stimuli to a listener for psychoacoustic research which avoids many of the problems of using headphones in experiments. Using a highly sensitive discrimination paradigm, which addressed a variety of issues in previous, headphone-based experiments, this study aimed to determine whether a system using individual crosstalk cancellation filters can present binaural stimuli that are perceptually indistinguishable from a real sound source. The fast deconvolution with frequencydependent regularization method was used to design crosstalk cancellation filters. The reproduction loudspeakers were positioned at90 degrees azimuth, and the synthesized location was 0 degrees azimuth. Eight listeners were tested with noise, click trains, and pulsed tone stimuli. For the pulsed tone stimuli subjects were unable to discriminate between real and virtual sources. For the noise and click stimuli discrimination was marginally above chance, but well below the threshold of detection. That is, weak cues did exist but they were almost completely unreliable. The results suggest that this method of producing individualized crosstalk cancellation filters is suitable for binaural perceptual experiments.

    This paper considers the characteristics of three differing styles of singing early music, as characterized by Richard Bethell [1] of the National Early Music Association, UK. In particular, the sung outputs from a postgraduate soprano who was practiced in singing all three styles are analysed along with the output from an electrolaryngograph which provides data on cycle-by-cycle fundamental variation as well as vocal fold contact area. The results are compared and contrasted with those from a group of early music and opera singers analysed previously.
