This paper reviews the popular methods and models used for the synthesis of the singing voice, discussing strengths and weaknesses of each technique. Then a brief review is given of research on cross-modal visual/auditory perception of the human voice. The paper concludes with comments related to the singing synthesis systems discussed, addressing multi-modal perception, audio morphing, and the categorical perception of sound.
