This project is a software tool developed in Max/MSP that allows musical elements, specifically in the context of a live performance, to be controlled by human vocal input. This involves the simple real time processing and analysis of numerous aspects of a vocal input, and the use of it to control & perform a musical piece. This project does not involve the direct manipulation of vocals, but instead uses the human voice as a controller to manage functions in real time.
