    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
