Anechoic audio and 3D-video content database of small ensemble performances for virtual concerts

Abstract : This paper presents the details related to the creation of a public database of anechoic audio and 3D-video recordings of several small music ensemble performances. Musical extracts range from baroque to jazz music. This work aims at extending the already available public databases of anechoic stimuli, providing the community with flexible audiovisual content for virtual acoustic simulations. For each piece of music, musicians were first close-mic recorded together to provide an audio performance reference. This recording was followed by individual instrument retake recordings, while listening to the reference recording, to achieve the best audio separation between instruments. In parallel, 3D-video content was recorded for each musician, employing a multiple Kinect 2 RGB-Depth sensors system, allowing for the generation and easy manipulation of 3D point-clouds. Details of the choice of musical pieces, recording procedure, and technical details on the system architecture including post-processing treatments to render the stimuli in immersive audiovisual environments are provided.
