Imitation of the Voice ? An Acoustic Study

Babi Duli

The present study presented here is an imitation of a voice sample imitated the south Indian film star Mahesh Babu by a professional imitator/mimicry artist in a TV show. The imitator tried to imitate the dialogue of the hero from his block buster hit movie titled Dookudu ([du: kuu). The aim of the study is to investigate how closely the imitations matched in the selected acoustic parameters of the original voice. It was found that he was able to imitate dialogue very closely, but timing at the segmental level showed little change in the direction of the targets. Mean formant frequency did not match the target voice. It is too distant in the timing, mean of formant frequencies and in pitch

Keywords: imitation, fundamental frequency, formant frequency, pitch, timing, forensic, phoneticians, culprits, acoustics, YouTube
