A new project:
The idea is to use festival speech synth to turn what people type into rhythms, giving them a simple multi-user interface for playing words together.
Please play with it! All feedback very much appreciated. It’ll run until 14th April, after which I’ll release the sourcecode under the GPL for download, plus if anyone’s interested, a DVD containing the audio from the two weeks.
Relatedly, I was excited to find out about Canntaireachd, which is to bagpipes what bols are to tabla. I’m looking forward to getting my own articulatory synthesis working…
[update] This project is now finished, but I wrote a report on it.
