Speaker 4

Part of Micro-Composition curated by Cally Spooner.


Speaker 4 is part of an ongoing project sparked off by the WaveNet algorithm. WaveNet is a deep learning algorithm that learns how to speak from raw audio data of a variety of speakers. It learns by recognising patterns in the waveforms of the data and it acquires voice independently from language. It can reproduce the extralinguistic sounds of breathing, of salivating the tongue before an utterance, of opening and closing the mouth. Its speech is not limited by the structure of vocal apparatus or governed by the phoneme.
