We've a long history of creating pioneering and enabling "ideation" apps / tech.
In 2007 we co-founded Intermorphic to develop a new range of powerful creativity apps that help foster serendipity moments, moments where new ideas can sprout and you get those special 'ooh' & 'aah' moments. Our primary focus is on creating open 'inmo' apps (tools) that let you use your own content to create new music, melodies or word ideas ('ideation') for e.g. films, games, songs, lyrics or creative writing or just for relaxation and enjoyment.
Prior to Intermorphic, in 1990 we co-founded SSEYO which developed various BAFTA Award winning generative music tools and "mobile music making" audio software. The 1994-released SSEYO Koan Generative Music System went on to be used by talented generative artists such as Jamuud, Tim Didmyus, Mark Harrop and Andrew Garton, as well as by the genius Brian Eno for his 1996-released "Generative Music 1". The 2004-released SSEYO miniMIXA "mobile music mixer" was one of the first powerful native mobile music making apps for use on Smartphones.
Our "long journey" of ideas and 'open' apps started at SSEYO in 1990 and it's now 23 years on. We've never stopped trying to innovate and we're still committed to developing & extending our life's work. We hope you continue to enjoy it - as we do it for you.
In 2002 SSEYO was acquired by Tao Group. We worked there until June 2007 when Tao Group folded (the engineering staff and management of which then went on to form a new company, Antix Labs which has now also gone). As we wanted to continue our life's work in creating apps to help generate ideas and deliver unique "inmo" experiences, we knew we had to start again, and we did so as Intermorphic.
In 2008 Intermorphic acquired the rights to the SSEYO.com domain, SSEYO trademarks and all the SSEYO, Koan, miniMIXA and iSS [intent Sound System which is now part of Tikltech] related IP (noting that we did not take on SSEYO as a going concern, or get any customer records etc), so we now own our "back catalogue". The old SSEYO Koan IP is now in safe "curatorial" hands and, even though it is on the shelf and will not be further developed, maintained or supported, we are using bits of it where we can for parts, e.g. Mixtikl includes some of what was in the iSS.
If you purchased, used and enjoyed our SSEYO products - we greatly thank you! Although SSEYO is now gone, we hope you also decide to try out and enjoy our new products (and you may be interested to know that Noatikl can open / play your old Koan SKD files).
|Noatikl - Released 2007 regularly updated
A powerful inmo music lab utilising a unique blend of rule-based generative techniques & varied music tech. It is what is known in industry terms as a totally "clean room" development as it has been built completely from scratch and shares no source code from SSEYO Koan. Noatikl is Koan evolved, and Koan lives on via Intermorphic. Platforms - Mac/Windows: 2007; iOS: 2013.
|Mixtikl - Released 2008 regularly updated
An inmo music mixer for mobile to desktop featuring generative music tech. It shares some original DNA with miniMIXA (mainly related to the Partikl synth side), but this share has rapidly diminished. Platforms - Mac/Windows: 2008; iOS: 2009; Android: 2012
|Liptikl - Released 2007 regularly updated
A "cut-up" word arranger and word shuffler. It allows a user to randomly "mash" up to 3 different text sources to come up with new word juxtapositions for use in lyric writing, poetry etc. Platforms - Mac/Windows: 2007
|Tiklbox - Released 2012 regularly updated
An easy to use inmo music player. The first two albums are for relaxation and reflection - "Calm" and "Relax". Platforms - iOS: 2012
Intermorphic Tikltech [transitional kinetic lattice technology] is what underpins all our products and allows us to deliver our ideation tools and software.
Note: * Parts of Intermorphic Tikltech were in the Tao intent Sound System "iSS" which we originally built whilst at Tao Group. Intermorphic have been sole owners of all elements of the iSS since 2008. Intermorphic Tikltech is at the core of Noatikl, Mixtikl and Partikl.
The rationale for Intermorphic is to build tools to help feed the imagination through helping to generate ideas. With that in mind, the hidden ovals in our logo came from the "elliptical" approach of our first product, Liptikl.
Why did we choose to have tail stems for some of the first IM products (e.g. "Mixtikl")? We know that when it comes to branding taxonomy that it is normal practise for the common part of a brand (i.e. a stem) to be first, or to prefix other common words (e.g. Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel etc.). When it comes to generating new ideas it is often handy to look at things from a different perspective, therefore we decided in most cases to append our product stem, Tikl [transitional kinetic lattice], instead. This also means that our product brands can stand on their own two feet, independent of the main company brand: IM Noatikl, IM Mixtikl, IM Liptikl, IM Partikl, IM Optikl etc. Tiklbox is a player of Tikls, which is why we named that differently!
In addition to domains for our trademarked products, we also own the following domains (we've been active in the area of generative music for ages [since 1990 effectively]): http://www.generativemusic.net and http://www.generativemusic.co.uk.
