  • Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Loscos, Àlex; Cano, Pedro; Serra, Xavier; Kenmochi, Hideki (Audio Engineering Society, 2001)
    In this paper we present two different approaches to the modeling of the singing voice. Each of these approaches has been thought to fit in the specific requirements of two applications. These are an automatic voice impersonator ...
  • Janer Mestres, Jordi; Haro Berois, Martín; Roma Trepat, Gerard; Fujishima, Takuya; Kojima, Naoaki ([Sound and Music Computing], 2009)
    Sample-based music composition often involves the task of manually searching appropriate samples from existing audio. Audio mosaicing can be regarded as a way to automatize this process by specifying the desired audio ...
  • Martínez, Elena; Celma Herrada, Òscar; Sordo, Mohamed; de Jong, Bram; Serra, Xavier ([Sound and Music Computing], 2009)
    This paper presents an in–depth study of the social tagging mechanisms used in Freesound.org, an online community where users share and browse audio files by means of tags and content–based audio similarity search. We ...
  • Oramas, Sergio; Ferraro, Andrés; Correya, Albin Andrew; Serra, Xavier (2017)
    In this work, we present MEL, the first Music Entity Linking system. MEL is able to identify mentions of musical entities (e.g., album, songs, and artists) in free text, and disambiguate them to a music knowledge base, ...
  • Basart i Muñoz, Josep M.; Farrús, Mireia; Florensa, Albert; Mariño Acebal, José B.; Nadeu Camprubí, Climent; Serra, Montse (Fundació Bancària "La Caixa", 2016)
  • Kim, Jaehun; Won, Minz Sanghee; Serra, Xavier; Liem, Cynthia C. S. (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2018)
    The automated recognition of music genres from audio information is a challenging problem, as genre labels are subjective and noisy. Artist labels are less subjective and less noisy, while certain artists may relate more ...
  • Roma Trepat, Gerard; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto; Serra, Xavier (2009)
    The habit of sharing media online has created a platform with great potential for creative applications that are accessible to large numbers of users with very different backgrounds. As an example, a lively community has ...
  • Serra, Xavier (1998)
    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 that have to be considered ...
  • Amatriain, Xavier; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Serra, Xavier (International Conference on Digital Audio Effects, 1998)
    Since the MIDI 1.0 specification, well over 15 years ago, many have been the attempts to give a solution to all the limitations that soon became clear. None of these have had a happy ending, mainly due to commercial ...
  • Eakin, Richard Thomas; Serra, Xavier (International Conference on Digital Audio Effects, 2009)
    We present a real-time implementation of SMS synthesis in Pure Data. This instrument focuses on interaction with the ability to continuously synthesize any frame position within an SMS sound representation, in any order, ...
  • Daza, Vanesa; Di Pietro, Roberto; Klimek, Ivan; Signorini, Matteo (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    The Internet of Things is gaining momentum thanks to the provided vision of seamlessly interconnected devices. However, a unified way to discover and to interact with the surrounding smart environment is missing. As an ...
  • Serra, Xavier; Bonada, Jordi, 1973- (International Conference on Digital Audio Effects, 1998)
    The basic Spectral Modeling Synthesis (SMS) technique models sounds as the sum of sinusoids plus a residual. Though this analysis/synthesis system has proved to be successful in transforming sounds, more powerful and ...
  • Farrús, Mireia; Costa-jussà, Marta R.; Mariño Acebal, José B.; Fonollosa, José A Rodriguez (European Association for Machine Translation, 2010)
    Machine translation evaluation methods are highly necessary in order to analyze the performance of translation systems. Up to now, the most traditional methods are the use of automatic measures such as BLEU or the quality ...
  • Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 2005)
    In this article I give a personal view on what could be a roadmap for the research in Music Technology. I will describe the context of this research, the current state of the art, the challenges that lie ahead and I will ...
  • Serra, Xavier (International Computer Music Conference, 2004)
    The Music Technology Group, MTG, integrated in the Audiovisual Institute of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra of Barcelona, specializes in audio processing technologies and their music and multimedia applications. With more ...
  • Wright, Matthew; Dannenberg, Roger; Pope, Stephen; Rodet, Xavier; Serra, Xavier; Wessel, David (International Computer Music Conference, 2004)
    This panel discussion will review the standards that the computer music community has produced and how these standards were created, followed by a guided interactive group discussion about future directions for our ...
  • Grimaldi, Antoine Vincent; Kane, David; Bertalmío, Marcelo (2017)
    The human visual system (HVS) has evolved to cope with the natural world. Understanding the statistical regularities in the world can help us understanding the HVS and aid the design of image processing algorithms.
  • Amarasinghe, Ishari; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Jonsson, Anders (2017)
    Learner group formation manually based on multiple criteria often fails due to its complexity and time limitations of practitioners. This paper presents a novel binary integer programming approach which models learner ...
  • Pasarella, Edelmira; Lobo, Jorge (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2017)
    Relationships like friendship to limit access to resources have been part of social network applications since their beginnings. Describing access control policies in terms of relationships is not particular to social ...
  • Rach, Niklas; Minker, Wolfgang; Wanner, Leo (CEUR Workshop Proceedings, 2017)
    In this work we propose a scheme for an Argumentative Dialogue System that allows a user to discuss a certain topic with a virtual agent using natural language. Starting from an agent vs agent case, we address the ...
