Aug 2008
Orpheus : A System for Prosody-based Automatic Song Composition from the Lyrics, SIG-MUS Best Presentation Award, Information Processing Society of Japan
Winner: Satoru Fukayama, Kei Nakastuma, Shinji Sako, Takuya Nishimoto, Shigeki Sagayama
 
In this paper, we discuss a new algorithm for automatic song composition and introduce our new composition system named "Orpheus". We show that composing melody on Japanease lyrics can be done automatically by considering musical composition task ...

International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP)   3 25-28   Oct 2000   [Refereed]
This paper describes a technique for text-to-audio-visual speech synthesis based on hidden Markov models (HMMs), in which lip image sequences are modeled based on imageor pixel-based approach. To reduce the dimensionality of visual speech feature ...

IPSJ Journal   43(7) 2169-2176   Aug 2002   [Refereed]
This paper describes a technique for text-to-audio-visual speechsynthesis based on hidden Markov models (HMMs), in which lip imagesequences are modeled based on pixel-based approach. To reduce the dimensionality of visual speech feature space, we ...

International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP)   1 800-803   Apr 2003   [Refereed]
In this paper, we define an F0 quantization scheme for a very low bit rate speech coder based on HMM (hidden Markov model). In the coding system, the encoder carries out phoneme recognition, and transmits phoneme indices, state durations and F0 in...
