This paper introduces the Fluid Decomposition Toolbox, a set of extensions to enable programmatic signal decomposition for the most widely used musical creative coding environments. As part of the Fluid Corpus Manipulation project, the toolbox is aimed at helping to make musical sense of sound recordings, which we frame as a transition from a collection to a corpus. We present tools for decomposing signals in terms of ‘slices’, ‘layers’ and ‘objects’, and discuss the larger aims of the project and its toolkits.
