Abstract:

This paper deals with the acoustic analysis of timbral and rhythmic patterns of the Cicada Orni sound activity, collected at the Plato Academy archaeological site during the summer period of 2014, comprising the Tettix soundscape database.

The main purpose here is to use sound analysis for understanding the basic patterns of cicada calls and shrilling sounds, and subsequently use the raw material provided by the Tettix database in a statistical modeling framework for creating virtual sounds of cicadas, allowing the control of synthesis parameters spanning micro, meso and macro temporal levels.
