Alda (Music Programming Language) Update

Alda: A Music Programming Language, Built in Clojure by David Yarwood.

Presentation by David at Clojure Remote.

From the description:

Inspired by other music/audio programming languages such as PPMCK, LilyPond and ChucK, Alda aims to be a powerful and flexible programming language for the musician who wants to easily compose and generate music on the fly, using only a text editor.

Clojure proved to be an ideal language for building a language like Alda, not only because of its wealth of excellent libraries like Instaparse and Overtone, but also because of its Lispy transparency and facility for crafting DSLs.
