From Timbre Perception to the Creative Exploration of Musical Instrument Sound Morphing

Project description

Creating new music through sound morphing

The MORPH project uses signal processing to examine timbre in traditional musical instruments, and through sound morphing and technology to create hybrid musical instruments. Examining the sonic gap between instrument sounds, this multidisciplinary project will integrate a user interface to lead expression beyond the known boundaries in digitised acoustic music. It will develop new modelling techniques for instrument sounds, expand our knowledge of signal processing and timbre, and blur the distinctions between sounds. This will not only add to the understanding of timbre but will also exponentially boost the creation of new music through hybrid instrument sounds.
