Eight-bell chime in its frame (McShane Bell Foundry, Maryland)

A chime (/ˈtʃm/) or set of chimes is a carillon-like instrument, i.e. a pitched percussionidiophone consisting of 22 or fewer castbronzebells and tuned so that they can be sounded harmoniously together. Chimes are primarily played with a keyboard, but can also be played with an Ellacombe apparatus or electro-mechanical actuators.[1][2]

Before 1900, chime bells typically lacked dynamic variation and were not harmonically tuned. Since then chime bells produced in Belgium, the Netherlands, England, and America have tuning to produce fully harmonized music.[3]

American chimes usually have one to one and a half diatonicoctaves. Some chimes are automated.

Etymology[edit]

Look up chime in Wiktionary, the free dictionary.

The word chime dates back to the 14th century Middle English word chymbe, meaning 'cymbal.' It probably originates from the Old Frenchchimbe or directly from the Latincymbalum. The Latin word was shortened in Old French and misinterpreted as chymbe bellen in Middle English, where the meaning shifted by the mid-16th century to 'set of bells in a church or clock tower, apparatus or arrangement for striking bells'.[4]

Distribution[edit]

Chimes across the world are counted and registered by TowerBells, among other bell instruments. It also publishes maps, technical specifications, and summary statistics.[5] According to TowerBells, there are over 1,300 existing chimes. They can be found on every content except Antarctica; however, of the countries in which chimes can be found, only 16 have more than 10. The Netherlands and the United States account for over half of the world total. About 90percent are located in either Western Europe or North America.

Notable chimes[edit]

  • The Altgeld Chimes at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The fifteen bells were cast and installed by the McShane Bell Foundry in 1920. They were a gift of the classes of 1914-1921 and the United States School of Military Aeronautics.[7]
  • The Cornell Chimes in Cornell University's McGraw Tower.

Following the success of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th CHiME challenges we are pleased to announce the 6th CHiME Speech Separation and Recognition Challenge (CHiME-6). The new challenge will consider the problem of distant multi-microphone conversational speech diarization and recognition in everyday home environments. Speech material was elicited using a dinner party scenario with efforts taken to capture data that is representative of natural conversational speech.

All approaches are welcome, whether they are emerging or established, and whether they rely on speech processing, signal separation or machine learning.

THE CHiME-2020 VIRTUAL WORKSHOP

The results of CHiME-6 will be presented at a dedicated virtual workshop that will take place on May 4th. Details are available on the workshop website.

MATERIALS

Meeting

CHiME-6 features two tracks:

  1. Multiple-array speech recognition
  2. Multiple-array diariazation and recognition

These two tracks are reruns of CHiME-5 and DIHARD II, respectively, with the following key differences:

  • an accurate array synchronization script is provided,
  • the impact of diarization error on speech recognition error will be measured,
  • upgraded, state-of-the-art baselines are provided for diarization, enhancement, and recognition.
Virtual

Participants are able to submit to either one track or both.

On this web site you will find everything you need to get started, including,

  • a task overview providing details of the motivation and recording set up,
  • For both Track 1 and Track 2
    • a description of the training, development and evaluation datasets,
    • baseline recognition and evaluation tools,
    • a detailed description of the challenge rules,
    • instructions on how to submit your results,
  • a download center with links to all tools and data packages.

CHALLENGE DATES

  • Dec, 2019 — Release of data and baseline systems
  • 11:59pm (Pacific time), 10th April, 2020 — System submission
  • 4th May, 2020 — CHiME-6 Workshop (satellite of ICASSP 2020) and release of results

ORGANISERS

  • Shinji Watanabe, Johns Hopkins University, USA
  • Michael Mandel CUNY, USA
  • Jon Barker, University of Sheffield, UK
  • Emmanuel Vincent, Inria, France
