Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


In this paper we present a new method for indexing of audio data in terms of repeating sub-clips of variable length that we call audio factors. The new structure allows fast retrieval and recombination of sub-clips in a manner that assures continuity between splice points. The resulting structure accomplishes effectively a new method for texture synthesis, where the amount of innovation is controlled by one of the synthesis parameters. In the paper we present the new structure and describe the algorithms for efficiently computing the different indexing links. Examples of texture synthesis are provided in the paper.
