Music and Speech Modelling (Postgraduate/Undergraduate)

This module introduces students to the mathematical and computational modeling of expressivity in music and in spoken language through a problem based learning approach. The module focuses on methods for representing and analysing performed music and spoken language, for developing music and speech technologies, and on applications of these technologies. Topics covered include aspects of prosody┬┐such as timing, loudness, intonation, and spectral features┬┐and structure. Applications include emotion, learning, and generation.
