The accurate synchronisation of tempo progressions is a compositional challenge. This paper describes the development of a method based on B\'zier curves that facilitates the construction of musical tempo polyphonies up to an arbitrary level of complexity, and its implementation in a software tool. The motivation for this work is to enable and encourage composers to create music with different simultaneously varying tempos which otherwise would be too complex to manage.
