Audio analysis by a model of the physiological auditory system
In this paper, an analysis of flute attacks processed by a model of the physiological auditory system is presented. In flute performance, the musician uses consonants (/d/, /g/, /k/, /t/ and /p/) in order to create particular effects as hard and soft attacks. These effects are very important in music interpretation. We found that the model discriminates the sounds very well and better than spectral analysis as worked out by standard methods. The model responses appeared very detailed and allowed attack classification by the application of very simple pattern recognition techniques.
