Sketching concatenative synthesis: audiovisual Isomorphism in reduced modes.

  This paper presents a prototype allowing the control of a
concatenative synthesis algorithm using a 2D sketching
interface. The design of the system is underpinned by a
preliminary discussion in which isomorphisms between
auditory and visual phenomena are identified. We support
that certain qualities of sound and graphics are inherently
cross-modal. Following this reasoning, a mapping
strategy between low-level auditory and visual features
was developed. The mapping enables the selection of
audio units based on five feature data streams that derive
from the statistical analysis of the sketch
