BIO

ABOUT ME

Niccolò Pretto completed his Ph.D. at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova. His research is primarily focused on sound and music computing, and preservation and access to historical audio documents and cultural heritage in general. More specifically, his work consists of research and development of innovative methodologies, and applications to preserve, analyze, and experience musical heritage. His work is highly multidisciplinary; during his research he has collaborated with engineers (computer science, telecommunication, civil, and the like), as well as musicologists, archaeologists, archivists, psychologists, architects, earth scientists, and physicians. Additionally, his research has included the adoption of several technologies and methods extending to web and mobile interfaces, embedded systems, and machine learning techniques.

RESEARCH

CURRENT PROJECTS

IT4aREC

I am the principal investigator of the IT4aREC project. It aims to design innovative algorithms and to develop new software tools for (a) validating digital preservation copies, (b) restoring and analyzing preservation copies, (c) supporting the creation of archival units available to researchers and/or common audience and (d) evaluating the suitability of blockchain technologies for long-term preservation of audio recordings. It is highly multidisciplinary and involves several national and international collaborations. For the development of the restoration workflow and filters for compensating speed and equalization errors occurred during the digitization of audio open-reel tapes as well as for their validation I am currently collaborating with several national and international researchers and professionals, such as prof. Emery Schubert (University of New South Wales, AU) and Dr. Kurt James Warner (Izotope Inc., US). IT4aREC is also closely linked to Archivio Vi.Vo. and FONTI 4.0 projects where I worked as postdoctoral researcher and I am currently collaborating with. They are described in the following sections.

ARCHIVIO VI.VO.

Archivio Vi.Vo. is an Italian project financed by the Region of Tuscany, aiming to: (i) explore methods for long-term preservation and secure access to oral sources, and (ii) develop an infrastructure under the CLARIN-IT umbrella, offering several services for scholars from different domains interested in oral sources. In this project, I developed the methodology, and I am co-supervising the development of a platform for the preservation and access to oral sources collaborating with prof. Silvia Calamai (University of Siena and Principal Investigator of the project), Dr. Monica Monachini (Institute of Computational Linguistics, CNR, Pisa and coordinator of CLARIN-IT), Dr. Maria Francesca Stamuli (Soprintendenza archivistica e bibliografica della Toscana). This platform will be deployed in the Italian Gruppo per l'Armonizzazione delle Reti della Ricerca (GARR) infrastructure as service in the European Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure (CLARIN). The algorithms and tools of IT4aREC will be integrated in the platform.

FONTI 4.0

The project FONTI 4.0 is funded by the Veneto Region though the European Social Funding. The goal is to automatize the extraction of information from analog oral sources through an automatic transcription chain. The steps of the project are: (1) detecting and correcting errors that could occur during the digitized recordings (equalization and speed errors), (2) transcribing the content through existing commercial software, (3) analyzing the transcribed text to identify information such as date, location, important names, etc., and (4) developing an interface for searching and playing digitized oral sources. In this project I am co-supervising the development of the overall transcription chain for automatically analyzing the contents of historical oral sources. This project will adopt algorithms of IT4aREC for the restoration of digitized recordings. I am actively collaborating with prof. Frederic Kaplan (head of Digital Humanities Laboratory of École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne ‐ EPFL), Dr. Alain Dufaux (Cultural Heritage & Innovation Center, EPFL, CH) and Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venezia.

MPAI

From February 2021 I am a member of the Moving Picture, Audio and Data Coding by Artificial Intelligence (MPAI) community (mpai.community) aiming at Artificial Intelligence (AI) enabled digital data compression specifications. I am part of the Context-based Audio Enhancement (CAE) and Multimodal Conversation (MMC) standard groups, mainly working at the Audio Recording Preservation (ARP) standardization. The community involves researchers and companies all around the world, but the most valuable collaborators are Leonardo Chiariglione (co-founder of Moving Picture Experts Group - MPEG - and MPAI president) and prof. Marina Bosi (University of Stanford, US).

VADEMECUM PER IL TRATTAMENTO DELLE FONTI ORALI

From 2018 I am part of an Italian national working group aiming to define the guidelines for the production, preservation and valorization of oral sources named as Vademecum per il trattamento delle fonti orali . This multidisciplinary group involves (a) Italian universities such as Ca’ Foscari University and University of Siena, (b) several Italian central institutes of the Ministry of Culture such as Direzione generale Archivi, Istituto centrale per gli Archivi, Istituto centrale per i beni sonori e audiovisivi, Istituto centrale per il catalogo e la documentazione, as well as association such as Associazione italiana di storia orale and Associazione italiana scienze della voce. I am a member of the "preservation of oral archives" and "use and re-use of oral sources" working groups.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

HISTORICAL AUDIO RECORDINGS

My research interests are primarily focused on the development of tools and interfaces for preserving, restoring, accessing and making use of historical audio recordings. My first contribution on the field was the development of web and mobile interfaces that virtualize 78 rpm gramophone and tape recorders and their physical carrier to recreate the listening conditions of the time. Further interfaces are under development for managing all the steps of the life cycle of magnetic tapes such as the creation of preservation copies, the restoration, cataloging and access to the digitized documents, aiming to create a platform for the preservation and access of audio documents, which will be integrated in the CLARIN-ERIC infrastructure. All the previous interfaces need several tools for the detection of errors and the analysis of the multimedia content. For this reason, my research interest involves the development of automatic tools based on signal processing and machine learning techniques tackling these complex problems. All these works are set in the research fields of sound and music computing.

INTERACTIVE MUSEUM INSTALLATIONS

In recent decades the role of many museums has evolved from preserving and displaying artifacts to that of institutions focused on the education and entertainment of visitors. To this end, museum curators strive to design and implement exhibitions that offer an educational yet also enjoyable experience. For these reasons interactive multimedia installations, augmented and virtual reality applications, and mobile apps are increasingly widespread. Often historical or modern musical instruments are presented in museums and exhibitions. While there are numerous instrument types, a visitor must physically interact with them in order to properly understand them. Usually this is impossible as preservation policies make the artifact inaccessible, or because degradation makes the instrument unusable. The proposed approach is to transpose the concepts of passive and active preservation from historical audio documents to the field of physical artifacts and musical instruments. In this context, passive preservation is meant to preserve the original instruments from external agents without altering their components, while active preservation involves a new design of the instruments using new components or a virtual simulation of the instruments. The project "Archaeology and virtual acoustics" provided an interesting case study. It concerns an exceptionally well-preserved ancient pan flute, most likely of Greek origin, recovered in Egypt in the 1930’s and now exhibited in the Museum of Archaeological Sciences and Art (MSA), University of Padova. It was during this project, that I entered this multidisciplinary research area, specifically by managing the development of an interactive museum installation that virtually recreates the instrument, and communicates different aspects related to history, iconography, acoustics, musicology, etc. This installation is now permanently exhibited at MSA.
