I am currently working at Ircam (since february 2001) as a post-PhD researcher.
I am involved in two project ECRINS and CUIDADO that deal with the problem of handling large databases of sound samples.
During the autumn 2001 for example, we designed an experiment where expert listeners were asked to describe a set of sound "objects" (in the sense given by pierre Schaeffer) and describe them through various means (verbal, graphical, hierarchical). See this link for an overview of this experiment (only internal access and in French).
I am currrently working on an SDIF-sampler (more to come...).
This work is integrated in a larger project concerned with the extension of the timbre of an acoustic organ.
You might want to browse the last seminar i made on this topic at Ircam. [presentation] (only internal access and in French).
I received a PhD in Musical Acoustics in Göteborg, Sweden in march 2001, for a thesis entitled "Sound Quality of Flue Organ Pipes - An Interdisciplinary Study on the Art of Voicing"

I am a former student of a one year course in acoustics, signal processing, psychoacoustics, computer science applied to music (DEA ATIAM, promo )
