Database I contains all the recordings made under the research project Aspects of production, perception and cognition at the intersection of speech and singing (Fapesp 2015 / 06283-0). The experimental design is shown below. The spoken and sung excerpts (textual units) belong to Macunaíma, by Mário de Andrade. Such textual units can be identified as four different songs: Conversa (Conversation), Jardineiro (Gardner), Macunaíma and Valei-me (Betake me). The songs melody is composed by Iara Rennó. Text unities are segmented in sentences and each sound file corresponds to one sentence and to a TextGrid file.
