    To enhance the experience of listening to classical orchestra music, either in the concert hall or at home, we present a personalized system that integrates three visualization/interaction concepts: Score Follower (points ...
  • Öktem, Alp; Farrús, Mireia; Wanner, Leo (Springer, 2017)
    Until very recently, the generation of punctuation marks for automatic speech recognition (ASR) output has been mostly done by looking at the syntactic structure of the recognized utterances. Prosodic cues such as breaks, ...
  • Arcos, Josep Lluís; López de Mántaras, Ramon; Serra, Xavier (Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), 1998)
    This paper briefly describes a system called SaxEx, capable of generating expressive musical performances based on examples. We have done several recordings of a tenor sax expressively playing Jazz ballads. These recordings ...
  • Aragón, Pablo; Kaltenbrunner, Andreas; Calleja-López, Antonio; Pereira, Andrés; Monterde Mateo, Arnau; Barandiaran, Xabier E.; Gómez, Vicenç (Springer Congressos, 2017)
    With the irruption of ICTs and the crisis of political representation, many online platforms have been developed with the aim of improving participatory democratic processes. However, regarding platforms for online ...
  • Cano, Pedro; Koppenberger, Markus; Wack, Nicolas (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2005)
    We present the MusicSurfer, a metadata free system for the interaction with massive collections of music. MusicSurfer automatically extracts descriptions related to instrumentation, rhythm and harmony from music audio ...
  • Cano, Pedro; Loscos, Àlex; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; de Boer, Marteen; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 2000)
    In this paper we present a real-time system for morphing two voices in the context of a karaoke application. As the user sings a pre-established song, his pitch, timbre, vibrato and articulation can be modified to resemble ...
  • Herrera Boyer, Perfecto; Serra, Xavier; Peeters, Geoffroy (International Computer Music Conference, 1999)
    Sound content description is one of the aims of the MPEG-7 initiative. Although MPEG-7 focuses on indexing and retrieval of audio, there are other sound content-based processing applications waiting to be developed once ...
  • Resina, Eduard; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1999)
    The Musicians' Software Mall is a software package developed to provide powerful composition and performance tools to the computer musician. At this stage it contains the following applications: SmsTools 2.0, a set of tools ...
  • Herrera Boyer, Perfecto; Amatriain, Xavier; Batlle, Eloi; Serra, Xavier (International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR), 2000)
    A system capable of describing the musical content of any kind of sound file or sound stream, as it is supposed to be done in MPEG7-compliant applications, should provide an account of the different moments where a certain ...
  • Wright, Matthew; Chaudhary, Amar; Freed, Adrian; Wessel, David; Rodet, Xavier; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1998)
    The Sound Description Interchange Format (SDIF) is a recently adopted standard that can store a variety of sound representations including spectral, time domain, and higher-level models. SDIF consists of a specified data ...
  • Derkach, Dmytro; Ruiz Ovejero, Adrià; Sukno, Federico Mateo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    In this paper we present a system that is able to estimate head pose using only depth information from consumer RGB-D cameras such as Kinect 2. In contrast to most approaches addressing this problem, we do not rely on ...
  • Serra, Xavier; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto; Loureiro, Ramon (International Computer Music Conference, 1997)
    Spectral based analysis/synthesis techniques offer powerful tools for the processing of sounds. They include many different approaches, each one with its own advantages and set of compromises. In the design of a general ...
  • Camurri, Antonio; Volpe, Gualtiero; Vinet, Hugues; Bresin, Roberto; Fabiani, Marco; Dubus, Gaël; Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Llop, Jordi; Kleimola, Jari; Oksanen, Sami; Välimäki, Vesa; Seppanen, Jarno (Springer, 2010)
    This paper surveys a collection of sample applications for networked user-centric context-aware embodied music listening. The applications have been designed and developed in the framework of the EU-ICT Project SAME ...
  • Serra, Xavier (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2012)
    In this paper we describe the data gathering work done within a large research project, CompMusic, which emphasizes a culture specific approach in the automatic description of several world music repertoires. Currently we ...
  • Arcos, Josep Lluís; López de Mántaras, Ramon; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1997)
    We have studied the problem of generating expressive musical performances in the context of tenor saxophone interpretations. We have done several recordings of a tenor sax playing dierent Jazz ballads with dierent degrees ...
  • Loureiro, Ramon; Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1997)
    The World Wide Web has brought the possibility of distributing multimedia objects through the Internet, becoming a very interesting platform for the development of innovative music and audio applications. Apart from the ...
  • Pons Puig, Jordi; Serra, Xavier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Many researchers use convolutional neural networks with small rectangular filters for music (spectrograms) classification. First, we discuss why there is no reason to use this filters setup by default and second, we point ...
  • Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1994)
    Phonos Foundation is a center located in the city of Barcelona. It promotes the use of technology in music, combining creation and research. Phonos offers musicians, engineers and scientists a working environment based on ...
  • Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 1994)
    Current sound hybridization techniques are ha.sed on the exciter-resonator model, where the spectral characteristics of a sound (resonator) are applied to another one (exciter). The tradi­ tional implementations use Linear ...
  • Dalmau, Víctor; Krokhin, Andrei; Manokaran, Rajsekar (SIAM (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics), 2015)
    We study the approximability of Minimum Constraint Satisfaction Problems (Min CSPs) with a fixed finite constraint language Γ on an arbitrary finite domain. The goal in such a problem is to minimize the number of unsatisfied ...
