This is great stuff, I will follow it with interest. On a side not have a look at the compressor in Ableton Live. It has three ways of visualising the audio running through it. I don't think I really understood how a compressor worked until I started using it.
I really like the ideas on your website. I agree that the area where we need to work is in the UI. We have powerful CPUs and a big toolkit of synthesis techniques. Now we need a better way of interacting with these tools. I will rethink my knob arrays.
I use breakpoint envelopes in JSyn. I may add the voice input to my envelope editor. I find Java is a good place for prototyping UI and has plenty of performance.
I notice that your examples did not show any sharp attacks. Probably because the voice takes a while to build. I think that combining a clap with a vocalization might be fun to try.
I will contact you off list.

I've been doing some work on re-designing the interactions / interfaces for music software. The focus isn't on the DSP, more on how we can better interact with it. That said, there are some engineering implications (particularly with the first prototype).
