The Visual Voice is an ongoing collaborative research project. The work seeks to represent the attributes of emotive vocal utterances as abstracted 3D moving images and to theorise and understand how we interpret complex emotive interactive exchanges between human and machine, sound and image, vocal quality and perceived emotive intent.

The research explores spectrographic imaging and its relationship to the sonic arts in the production of interactive multimedia artworks and performances that engage in direct interaction with the senses, beyond verbal language, exploring the sound worlds that hover between reality and its representations.

Research outcomes seek to facilitate understandings about sonic events represented as moving imagery -
with a particular focus on visually representing the sound of the human voice.
