High-speed real-time magnetic resonance imaging of fast tongue movements in elite horn players.
This paper describes the use of high-speed real-time (RT) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in quantifying very rapid motor function within the oropharyngeal cavity of six elite horn players. Based onExpand

Using listener-based perceptual features as intermediate representations in music information retrieval.
The notion of perceptual features is introduced for describing general music properties based on human perception. This is an attempt at rethinking the concept of features, aiming to approach theExpand

Mechanics and acoustics of violin bowing : Freedom, constraints and control in performance
This thesis addresses sound production in bowed-string instruments from two perspectives: the physics of the bowed string, and bow control in performance. Violin performance is characterized by an ...
