[plt-scheme] audio processing and music generation

I do not know of any PLT based stuff,
but there are a number of music related tools
with high level prgramming languages

Nyquist (uses a scheme like lisp dialect (xlisp?))
Common Music (Common Lisp)
JMSL (Java) - ypu couls also hook it up with jython/kawa or other JVM language
HMSL (Forth)
KeyKit - has it's own language
Hacore (Haskell)

I have also heard of music work done in Mozar/Oz, but have never seen a
pointer to the actual system.
