[Haskell-cafe] GSOC Idea: Simple audio interface

I would like to write an audio interface for haskell for GSoC. The
idea is to have a simple frontend (possibly an analog to the IO
'interact' function) that would permit writing simple functions to
process audio.  The interface would permit easy usage of various audio
APIs on various platforms to permit the writing of portable audio
programs in Haskell. Initial ideas include interfaces to PortAudio,
Jack, ALSA, CoreAudio, and/or SDL. The goal is to lower the barrier to
writing audio functions in Haskell and to permit quick experimentation
with audio generating or processing functions.

I'd love to hear feedback on this idea and to know of anyone would be
interested in mentoring.
