... The Fharvard corpus is a collection of 700 sentences in French, phonetically balanced into 70 lists of 10 sentences each. Each sentence contains 5 keywords for scoring. The list of sentences is contained in the file The Fharvard corpus.pdf with keywords in bold. The phonetic transcription is provided in The Fharvard corpus - phonetic.txt. The ortho column contains the orthographic representation of the sentence with keywords in capital letters. The phono column contains the phonetic representation in SAMPA coding, with words separated by two successive space characters. Note that the phonetic representation is provided on an individual word basis, that is, discarding word-to-word liaisons. This is to provide an unambiguous basis for phonetic balancing at the keyword level, as the realisation of some liaisons can vary from talker to talker. Audio recordings of the Fharvard sentences spoken by a female and a male talker are contained in the .zip archive files, and available with a 44.1 kHz and 16 kHz sampling rate. A sample sentence for the female and the male talker is also attached.

Data from: A 2.6-gram sound and movement tag for studying the acoustic scene and kinematics of echolocating bats

... 1. To study sensorimotor behaviour in wild animals, it is necessary to synchronously record the sensory inputs available to the animal, and its movements. To do this, we have developed a biologging device that can record the primary sensory information and the associated movements during foraging and navigating in echolocating bats. 2. This 2.6 -gram tag records the sonar calls and echoes from an ultrasonic microphone, while simultaneously sampling fine-scale movement in three dimensions from wideband accelerometers and magnetometers. In this study, we tested the tag on an European noctula (Nyctalus noctula) during target approaches and on four big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) during prey interception in a flight room. 3. We show that the tag records both the outgoing calls and echoes returning from objects at biologically relevant distances. Inertial sensor data enables the detection of behavioural events such as flying, turning, and resting. In addition, individual wing-beats can be tracked and synchronized to the bat’s sound emissions to study the coordination of different motor events. 4. By recording the primary acoustic flow of bats concomitant with associated behaviours on a very fine time-scale, this type of biologging method will foster a deeper understanding of how sensory inputs guide feeding behaviours in the wild.
Data from: Behaviourally mediated predation avoidance in penguin prey: in situ evidence from animal-borne camera loggers

... Predator dietary studies often assume that diet is reflective of the diversity and relative abundance of their prey. This interpretation ignores species-specific behavioural adaptations in prey that could influence prey capture. Here, we develop and describe a scalable biologging protocol, using animal-borne camera loggers, to elucidate the factors influencing prey capture by a seabird, the gentoo penguin (Pygoscelis papua). From the video evidence, we show, for the first time, that aggressive behavioural defence mechanisms by prey can deter prey capture by a seabird. Furthermore, we provide evidence demonstrating that these birds, which were observed hunting solitarily, target prey when they are most discernible. Specifically, birds targeted prey primarily while ascending and when prey were not tightly clustered. In conclusion, we show that prey behaviour can significantly influence trophic coupling in marine systems because despite prey being present, it is not always targeted. Thus, these predator-prey relationships should be accounted for in studies using marine top predators as samplers of mid to lower trophic level species.

... A collection of recordings from the annual propitiation rite by yumin Namje at Thembang village, Thembang circle, West Kameng district, Arunachal Pradesh India, recorded on April 29th, 2013 at his residence. The language spoken in Thembang is a variety of Dirang Tshangla. The yumin originally comes from Jerigaon village and settled in Thembang village, where he got married to a local woman. He continues to propitiate an impressive assembly of deities from various parts of the Himalayas, including as far away as western Bhutan, and including local deities of the Monpa, the Sartangpa, and the Miji. In addition, since he is a yumin, the local deities enter him and take possession of him turn by turn. The propitiation is in a curious mixture of Tibetan and local languages.
Supplementary materials for ' Toward a Synthetic Acoustic Ecology: Sonically Situated Evolutionary Agent-Based Models of the Acoustic Niche Hypothesis'

... This deposit contains supplementary materials for the paper 'Toward a Synthetic Acoustic Ecology: Sonically Situated Evolutionary Agent-Based Models of the Acoustic Niche Hypothesis', published at Artificial Life conference 2018. The dataset contains the source code for our model, the model outputs and the jupyter notebook we used for data analysis. Abstract: We introduce the idea of Synthetic Acoustic Ecology (SAC) as a vehicle for transdisciplinary investigation to develop methods and address open theoretical, applied and aesthetic questions in both scientific and artistic investigations of soundscape. Ecoacoustics is an emerging science that investigates and interprets the ecological role of sound. It draws historically from, and is reinvigorating the related arts-humanities discipline of acoustic ecology which studies sonically-mediated relationships between human beings and their environments. Both study the acoustic environment, or soundscape, as the literal and conceptual site of interaction of human and non-human organisms. However, no coherent theories exist to frame the ecological role of macro soundscape, or to elucidate the evolutionary processes through which it is structured. Similarly there is a lack of appropriate computational methods to analyse soundscape. We propose that a sonically situated flavour of ALife evolutionary agent-based model could build a productive bridge between the art, science and technologies of acoustic ecological investigations to the benefit of all. As a first step, two simple models of the acoustic niche hypothesis are presented which are shown to exhibit emergence of complex spectro-temporal soundscape structures and adaptation to and recovery from noise pollution events. We discuss the potential of SAC in the future as a lingua franca between empirical and theoretical ecoacoustics, and wider transdisciplinary research in soundscape.

... Whitening gravitational-strain data is a common procedure prior to searches for transient events. This program whitens strain data by moving normalization of standard deviation in the spectral domain. This procedure also suppresses violin modes. The program generates whitened data Z=(H1,L1) in CSP with accompanying plots. Included are audio clips of raw and whitened data for GW170817. The ascending chirp of the merger GW170817 is clearly brought about in whitened data.

... Short description: This collection of videos, audio and photo files displays Duhumbi crafts, as recorded between 2012 and 2017. Three main crafts are the art of weaving, the bamboo (and cane) craft, and the leather craft. The weaving topic shows the carding of wool, preparing the warp, the backstrap loom and the various actions of weaving while weaving a bag panel, a bag strap and boot straps, parts of the backstrap loom, weaving tools, nettle fiber bags and some examples of designs on the traditional bags. The bamboo craft topic shows how a bamboo rope is twisted, and various bamboo products. The leather topic shows various leather products.

... This collection of videos, audio and photo files displays Duhumbi agricultural practices as they were conducted between 2012 and 2017. Accompanying video and picture files illustrating the text files can be found at the end of this document. Traditionally, the people of the Chug valley depended on a mix of agriculture and animal husbandry for their livelihoods, supplemented by hunting and collection of forest produce. The Chug valley and the Sangthi valley are the only places in West Kameng district where relatively large-scale wetland rice cultivation takes place. This rice has for long been the main item in the barter trade, as well as the main item collected as tax by the erstwhile Tibetan administration and raided by the Miji. Agriculture has always been the main-stay of the local economy, not just in terms of self-sufficiency, but also in terms of barter trade. The agricultural produce, mainly the rice, was bartered for other food and other items, a practice that, despite increasing monetisation of the economic system, continues till date.
