Trevor Cox in a sound studio

Special Events

Now You're Talking

Talking and singing comes naturally to most of us so it is easy to overlook how truly remarkable the voice is. Mixing biology, physics and psychology, Trevor will explore the workings of the voice looking at accents and different singing styles. The human voice has always been in flux, but over the last hundred years or so, this has been accelerated by technology. What about the future? ‘Photoshop for voice’ has already been demonstrated, leading to a future with #FakeSpeech. Rich in sound examples, the talk will draw on Trevor’s latest popular science book, Now You’re Talking.

This evening talk at Glasgow Science Centre is organised as part of 2019 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium being held in Glasgow between 6 and 9 October 2019..
