An Interlanguage Study of Musical Timbre Semantic Dimensions and Their Acoustic Correlates
A study of musical timbre semantics was conducted with listeners from two different linguistic groups. In two separate experiments, native Greek and English speaking participants were asked toExpand

Evaluating Human-Computer Co-creative Processes in Music: A Case Study on the CHAMELEON Melodic Harmonizer
Appreciation of the system was expertise-dependent and users seemed to adopt more explorative strategies as a result of interaction with CHAMELEON based on the fact that the harmonizations created this way were more complex, diverse, and unexpected in comparison to the ones of the control group.

Musical timbre: bridging perception with semantics
Musical timbre is a complex and multidimensional entity which provides information regarding the properties of a sound source (size, material, etc.). When it comes to music, however, timbre does notExpand
An Interlanguage Unification of Musical Timbre: Bridging Semantic, Perceptual, and Acoustic Dimensions
The current study expands our previous work on interlanguage musical timbre semantics by examining the relationship between semantics and perception of timbre. Following Zacharakis, Pastiadis, andExpand
Leveraging diversity in computer-aided musical orchestration with an artificial immune system for multi-modal optimization
CAMO-AIS has higher diversity of orchestrations than Orchids without loss of perceptual similarity, and Opt-aiNet was developed to maximize diversity in the solution set of multi-modal optimization problems, which results in multiple alternative orchestrations for the same reference sound that are different among themselves.

Creating Musical Cadences via Conceptual Blending: Empirical Evaluation and Enhancement of a Formal Model
This work constitutes a case study whereby conceptual blending is used as a creative tool for inventing musical cadences and insights into perceptual aspects of conceptual bending are presented and ramifications for developing sophisticated creative systems are discussed. Expand
Musical blending and creativity: An empirical evaluation of the CHAMELEON melodic harmonisation assistant
The results show that harmonic blending influences the identification of idiom, mode and type of chromaticism, which suggests that the harmonic blending system has indeed succeeded in producing perceivable blends under various conditions that were unexpected and also equally preferred compared to non-blends.

Luminal Clinical
Of the three patients who progressed to esophageal adenocarcinoma during their surveillance period, two had early stage cancer (IA), which was suitable for curative treatment;the third patient hadExpand
Rearrangement of Timbre Space Due To Background Noise: Behavioural Evidence and Acoustic Correlates
Asterios Zacharakis presents his results from a two-day workshop at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he presented his findings in the guise of a student, and presented them in the style of a professional musician. Expand
