Generalisation in environmental sound classification : the ‘making sense of sounds’ data set and challenge (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Kroos, C., Bones, O., Cao, Y., Harris, L., Jackson, P., Davies, W., …Plumbley, M. (2019, May). Generalisation in environmental sound classification : the ‘making sense of sounds’ data set and challenge. Presented at 44th International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP 2019), Brighton, UK

Humans are able to identify a large number of environmental sounds and categorise them according to high-level semantic categories, e.g. urban sounds or music. They are also capable of generalising from past experience to new sounds when applying the...

Sound categories : category formation and evidence-based taxonomies (2018)
Journal Article
Bones, O., Cox, T., & Davies, W. (2018). Sound categories : category formation and evidence-based taxonomies. Frontiers in Psychology, 9, #1277. https://doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2018.01277

Five evidence-based taxonomies of everyday sounds frequently reported in the soundscape literature have been generated. An online sorting and category-labelling method that elicits rather than prescribes descriptive words was used. A total of N=242 p...

Congenital amusics use a secondary pitch mechanism to identify lexical tones (2017)
Journal Article
Bones, O., & Wong, P. (2017). Congenital amusics use a secondary pitch mechanism to identify lexical tones. Neuropsychologia, 104, 48-53. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2017.08.004

Amusia is a pitch perception disorder associated with deficits in processing and production of both musical and lexical tones, which previous reports have suggested may be constrained to fine-grained pitch judgements. In the present study speakers of... Read More about Congenital amusics use a secondary pitch mechanism to identify lexical tones.

An evidence-based soundscape taxonomy (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Bones, O., Cox, T., & Davies, W. (2017, July). An evidence-based soundscape taxonomy. Presented at 24th International Congress on Sound and Vibration ICSV24, London, UK

In an attempt to cultivate standardization in soundscape reporting Brown, Kang and Gjestland offered an influential schema by which the acoustic environment is divided initially into indoor and outdoor environments, and within each into further cate...

Clang, chitter, crunch : perceptual organisation of onomatopoeia (2017)
Journal Article
Bones, O., Davies, W., & Cox, T. (2017). Clang, chitter, crunch : perceptual organisation of onomatopoeia. ˜The œJournal of the Acoustical Society of America (Online), 141(5), 3694-3694. https://doi.org/10.1121/1.4988048

A method has been developed that utilizes a sound-sorting and labeling procedure, with correspondence analysis of participant-generated descriptive terms, to elicit perceptual categories of sound. Unlike many other methods for identifying perceptual... Read More about Clang, chitter, crunch : perceptual organisation of onomatopoeia.

Toward an evidence-based taxonomy of everyday sounds (2016)
Journal Article
Bones, O., Cox, T., & Davies, W. (2016). Toward an evidence-based taxonomy of everyday sounds. ˜The œJournal of the Acoustical Society of America (Online), 140(4), 3266-3266. https://doi.org/10.1121/1.4970357

An organizing account of everyday sounds could greatly simplify the management of audio data. The job of an audio database manager will typically involve assigning a combination of textual descriptors, and perhaps allocating to a predefined category....
