AbstractBy means of a sensing system we are able to capture bowing
and ¯ngering actions executed by a violinist during real performances.
The aim of this research is to model the relation between those actions
and the sound produced. We describe the process for training and op-
timizing the model by means of neural networks. Given a set of control
actions, the model is able to predict the spectral envelopes of the har-
monic and noisy components of the sound which are used for sound
synthesis. The model is validated by comparing a real recording with the
corresponding synthetic sound produced.
