This is a MaxMSP 5 32 bit software, Morpheme allows the control of a concatenative synthesis module (IMTR CataRT) through the act of sketching on a digital canvas. The aim is to enable synthesis of sound and the expression of compositional intention by providing perceptually meaningful visual description of sound attributes, in order to enable interaction with concetenative synthesis for creative purposes (e.g. sound design, electroacoustic composition).
