Abstract

Methods and results of a multivariate investigation of singers are presented. With complete linkage cluster analysis of the Euclidean distances between surface coordinates, similar changes of surface topography for some groups were found. The comparison with independently graded vocal quality could be interpreted in terms of more or less desirable movements.

Keywords : 3D surface analysis, hierarchical classification, moiré topography, motor activity, posture, singer
