A good friend of mine (Bart Weller) sent me this link to Hyperscore and to this Hyperinstruments. Both are from MIT. The first link is for a program that sounds very yummy (a different way to make music!) and if you're looking for a different way to make music, it looks promising (I'm going to download it NOW!). And the second link is the more general project overview (I love the names they give a lot of the stuff). Anyway, go check it out!
