...Paolo Ammirante; Fran Copelli I n order to be heard over the low-frequency energy of a loud orchestra, opera singers adjust their vocal tracts to increase high-frequency energy around 3,000 Hz (known as a “singer's formant”). In rap music, rhymes often coincide with the beat and thus may be masked...

..., and Classical music (e.g., Opera). In the case of Classical music, difficulty in perceiving sung words can arise because classical vocalists are typically trained to concentrate energy in the singer s formant (between *3 4 kHz for female singers and *2 3 kHz for male singers) (Huron & Condit...

... order to determine boundaries for sounds such as /l/, /r/, /w/ and /j/, we considered in addition both perceptual information and rapid spectral changes in formants. Following Patel et al.

... variations do not affect perceptions of intonation accuracy (Sundberg, Prame, & Iwarsson, 1995). Pitch variations greater than 5 cents were only retained for notes with noticeable vibrato, as described previously. For notes with vibrato, pitch was defined as mean fundamental frequency over time. Formant...

Simi- larly, Hollien, Mendes-Schwartz, and Nielsen (2000) found that the intelligibility of sung vowels declines considerably when the fundamental frequency reaches or exceeds the typical first formant, as is often the case for soprano singers.
