How can the art practice of self-representation be ported to sonic arts? In S’i’ fosse suono, brief sonic self-portraits are arranged in the form of an audiovisual checkerboard. The recorded non-verbal vocal sounds were used as sketches for synthetic renderings, using two seemingly distant sound modeling techniques. Through this piece, the authors elaborate on the ideas of self-portrait, vocal sketching, and sketching in sound design. The artistic exploration gives insights on how vocal utterances may be automatically converted to synthetic sounds, and ultimately how designers may effectively sketch in the domain of sound.
