Hideki Kawahara > Miraikan Morphing Demo
This demonstration was on display at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, Tokyo Japan from 23rd April to 15th August 2005. The title of the event is "Love stories - Why you are not alone.".
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.
