Question: during the development of SpeaK, did you base the development of your lexicon on research made only with sound designers, sound experts and musicians? Or did you also include non-musician’s lexicon or descriptions?
Another SpeaK question : A really interesting project ! But so much of the work on sound categorisation reduces to the difference between sound as a phenomenon and sound as the product of a body/action interaction (ie a ‘thing’)—viz. from Schaeffer to sound ecology. Listening to an isolated sound is one thing, but how will you take into account the way a compositional/artistic context can direct that listening?
Question: Can embodiment reshape our conceptualisation of audiovisual music/sound design into something more experiential and visceral? I would love to hear the panels thoughts on this
