Presentation by Dr. Pauline Larrouy-Maestri

Definition of vocal pitch accuracy in a melodic context

Abstract: While we easily refer to a performance as “out-of-category”, it is not so easy to describe explicitly on which criteria our evaluation is based. This presentation reports on “recent work on the perception of pitch accuracy in a melodic context”. The results allow us to refine the notion of pitch accuracy and thus to design objective tools for the evaluation of the quality of singers.
