Congratulations to Adèle de Baudouin for her first PhD paper dedicated to the visualization of soundscapes in both ecology and music! She proposes a circular time organization of field recordings or music compositions based on spectral similarity analysis. Check out the beautiful chord diagrams she could produce!

A new publication led by Christian Lorenzi (ENS Ulm – Paris Sciences et Lettres) about human auditory ecology, in particular about human perception of natural soundscapes. This establish a new bridge between ecoacoustics and human hearing research.
Yann Teytaut, doctor in Computer Music, is part of the ANR project EARSCAPE, led by the University of Toulouse. He will be involved in deep learning soundscape decomposition.
EAR participated to a new paper making the essential link between ecoacoustics and psychoacoustics. This work, published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America, is the first achievement of a great collaboration with the Laboratoire des Systèmes Perceptifs of the ENS headed by Christian Lorenzi. Led by Frédéric Apoux, the psychoacoustic experiments reveal that human listeners can discriminate soundscapes based on 2 second recordings only. This discrimination appear to be based on gross spectral but not temporal cues.
