Yes, great! I also tested SuperCollider in the past but it was hard for me
to get an overview of the documentation. The simplest way for me seemed to
use the SuperCollider programming language and thus to write an Haskore
backend translating into this language. But I prefer a direct (binary)
connection to the SuperCollider server.

Btw. I'm just collecting event list related code scattered in Haskore
modules for MIDI, performance and my Haskell audio signal backend in order
to setup a module for handling lists with time stamped events. This may be
also helpful for SuperCollider then.
