Augmenting Sound Mosaicing with Descriptor-Driven Transformation

We propose a strategy for integrating descriptor-driven transformation into mosaicing sound synthesis, in which samples are selected by taking into account potential distances in the transformed space. Target descriptors consisting of chroma, mel-spaced filter banks, and energy are modeled with respect to windowed bandlimited resampling and mel-spaced filters, and later corrected with gain. These transformations, however simple, allow some adaptation of textural sound material to musical contexts.
