Seminar by Jody Kreiman, Professor at UCLA and internationally renowned expert in the field of voice.
What is voice quality and how should we measure it?
This old question has been debated for decades, but still remains unanswered. In this talk I will argue that voice cannot be studied as a concatenation of separate research on production, acoustics, and perception, but must be considered as a single communicative process in which each piece interacts with and depends on the others. Then I will revisit our psychoacoustic model of voice quality, and present some current research from our lab applying this model to explore within-talker variation in voice and the links between voice production and perception.
