[Open] University study — This isn't a chorus but take a look, please !

Post by G Djee on Tue Sep 29, 2015 6:10 pm

Hello everyone ! First of all, I got the green light to post that odd "project" here, so it's ok if it's not really a chorus.

Now, let's begin a little presentation, I'll write some long stuff, read it carefully, it is principally for singers who are native english speakers, but off course you can read the whole thing if that interest you to know what's going on.

So, I'm G or Djee (my name is Simon btw and a lot of people are calling me by my name ahah) in the community, I'm not a famous singer or musician and I'm still pretty new into it, but being with all those singers, musicians and artists is my vocation.
Surprisingly, I'm not working in music but in phonetics !

I'm french, and in France, for a Master degree, we have to make a study in a field of our choice, a sort of baby Doctorat (equivalent of the PhD in France) which is important to prepare for the real PhD. I'm studying English linguistic and culture and my choice was phonetics !

So why am I posting that ?

Because my study is linked to music and singers.
I need to create a corpus of native english speaker singers which will work with me. Well let's say that I'll work and they'll just record some stuff for me.
I already has 13 people who said yes for my study, but the larger the corpus, the better the results will be !

So it's a very important and serious work ! It will implies some questionnaires with quite personal questions (where you lived during your whole life (if you moved for example), some informations about your parents, etc.), but at the publication of the study, everything will be kept secret and anonymated, only the results of my analysis of the corpus will be important, all the personal stuff will be kept appart.
Off course if you want me to link your YouTube channel at the end in the thanks section, I'll do so, I was planning to propose to all the singers of the community (that are willing to share a bit of their time for me) to link them as a big thank you.



So in the end, if you want to participate, your participation in the corpus would be the following one ::
– Recording three things for me : a song sequence (acapella (I have to work on the sounds themselves !) which I think will be probably an english dub of a Vocaloid song (I might put some choice for the song, I don't know yet), and no harmonies/adlibs/whatever), a read sequence (chosen texts I didn't chose them yet), and a spontanuous speech sequence (probably about yourself, a question, or a little funny story you have to tell ; it will be very free !).

– Answer a questionaire
 which will ask a lot of personnal stuff—don't worry nothing TOO personal but it is quite intrusive as far as I can tell—but will never leave the university (I can promise that), it's just stuff to know about you which would have influenced your actual english accent and your skill in music ! Everyone will be anonymous in the study (called "Informant A/B/C/D..." or by using initials).
It's important to know that the informations must be true, I'm not sure you can elude some questions, but I can ask my director if that's possible, she will answer me quite fast.

And then, again, I just need people which are native in english for instance. If you have a strong accent when you speak normally or not isn't a problem, I just need variety ! (The strong accents would be the most interesting stuff to study though, so don't hesitate !) Second point is I need people with a good microphone quality for the records and without a lot of parasite noises (but it's ok if there are only a few). There will be no mixes, and this is not a chorus of any kind, I'll just study a bit of your way of producing the sounds ! And the quality is important so I can analyse your voice without any difficulties.

Thanks for your attention !
And if you have questions, don't hesitate and ask me everything. ~

PS : I'll add my Skype in my profile if you want to contact me directly.
