The Haskell School of Expression is very good.  Maybe use what you learn
there to write your own music?  perhaps even render it visually with the
graphics library described in the book.

or by reading other people's code.  The book "Beautiful Code" has some
interesting stuff, including one great chapter about concurrency by GHC's
