Using Singing Voice Vibrato as a Control Parameter in a Chamber Oper

Even though a vast number of tools exist for real time voice analyses, only a limited number of them focus specifically on singing voice, and even less on features seen from a perceptual viewpoint. This paper presents a first step towards a multi-feature analysis-tool of the singing voice in a composer-researcher collaboration. A new method is used for extracting the vibrato extent of a singer, which is then mapped to a sound generation module. This was applied in the chamber opera Ps! I will be home soon. The experiences of the singer performing the part with the vibrato-detection were collected qualitatively and analyzed through Interpretative Phenomenological Analyses (IPA). The results revealed some interesting mixed feelings of both comfort and uncertainty in the interactive setup.
