    Celestia: A Vocal Interaction Music Game



    Voice is one of the most natural means of expression and vocal interaction is gaining popularity in game development field [1]. For example, a karaoke-style video game Sing Party published by Nintendo for the Wii U, Guitar Hero in which users use a guitar-shaped game controller to match notes scrolling on screen.
