" is a transcultural browser-based generative music environment focused on octave-repeating tuning systems and their subsets (scales/modes). It is designed to be used alongside its sister application, , also a browser-based tool, which allows for the creation of new tuning systems and subsets, or exploring existing ones.

Both Leimma and Apotome are non-commercial and were created as tools for music-making and/or music-learning. Although they can create sound through their integrated web synthesisers, their purpose is not synthesis or sound design. They are attempts to create decolonised, transcultural, digital music making tools that can facilitate the exploration of melodic possibilities from musical cultures long repressed by Western music theory, modern music technology and the hegemony of 12-tone equal temperament."
