Choir singers

GOOD PERCEPTION OF THE CHOIR SINGING PILOT AND IDEAS FOR IMPROVEMENT

  • The pilot of the TROMPA project aimed at choral practice has been well received by people who have tested it, according to a series of tests carried out.

  • The people who have tested the pilot have contributed with ideas and proposals to improve various functionalities of the application that will be incorporated shortly.

The TROMPA pilot for singers, about to be ready for choirs

In the TROMPA Choir singers use case, we are using multi-lingual singing voice synthesis to support individual choir singers rehearsal. During the first two years of the project, we have identified the users requirements, developed a working prototype and improved the synthesis models. Now, we are almost ready to start sharing our tools with choir singers! But, how did we get here?

Open call for choirs to participate in TROMPA project

We are looking for choirs to participate in our research project during 2019

This call is addressed to local choirs interested in our research and that want to contribute to the improvement of open archives of choir scores. In order to engage in this first stage with local choirs in Barcelona, due to practical reasons, the call is now only in catalan.

Choir singers

The case of using TROMPA for choir singers consists of an application designed for the individual study of the choral repertoire, making use of the technology of synthesis of sung voice.

Currently, the application has been tested by a group of singers and it is expected that 5 choirs will incorporate it as a working tool from September 2020.
