Folks have been doing sound synthesis in Haskell for a long time; in 
particular, I'm currently building on Rohan Drape's bindings to 


There's also Henning Thielemann who managed to do real-time audio 
editing in Haskell by performing run-time compilation with LLVM


Still, I think there's a need (I certainly have it) for a simple-to-use 
package that makes it really easy to play with sound synthesis in 
Haskell, i.e. that supports instant gratification. I'm currently working 
on a project called 'tomato-rubato' that aims to do precisely that. I'll 
put up a github repo once I have something that is glued together by 
duct tape rather than spit.

Best regards,
