Notes on the demonstration

The movie consists of three demonstrations using different speech samples. ([Suki: I love you in Japanese],[Gomen: I am sorry in Japanese],[I love you.]) Each demonstration was made from three original natural speech samples spoken by an actor with different emotional expressions. The original sounds are placed on three vertices with annotations on emotions. All other intermediate speech sounds are synthesized sounds using a STRAIGHT-based morphing algorithm.
