To explore how accurately the position of Mariah Carey’s hand during live performance reflects the pitch of the note she is singing.
I hypothesize that Mariah’s hand is not a perfect representation of the pitch but will produce a melody that is recognizable as the original song.
For my Data Rep final, I am comparing the position of Mariah Carey’s hand to the note that she is singing and re-imagining her melodies as if played by an invisible theremin. See here for my initial post.
Work has been coming along well. This past week, I completed my two data collection tasks: track her hand and identify frames in which she begins singing a note.
I have some serious, deep, issue-tackling projects nearing completion. This is not one of them. For my final project in Data Representation, I will answer the question “how does the position of Mariah Carey’s flailing hand relate to the pitch of her voice?”
