There is a rather sophisticated MIDI composition and performance
system available in the MCL library, which will be included on the
2.0 cd-rom and is also available at cambridge.apple.com in
It has been used for several compositions, including an opera by
Tod Machover, "Valis". This was incidentally based on Philip K. Dick's
"Valis", and has been performed using MCL before live audiences in
Boston, Paris, and Tokyo (compact disk available from Bridge Records,

MIT Media Laboratory
Hyperlisp is a real-time MIDI programming environment
embedded in Macintosh Common Lisp. The environment
was developed specifically for the Hyperinstruments project
at the MIT Media Laboratory, and is optimized for interactive
systems which require fast response times. Hyperlisp
provides two main services for the music programmer:
routines for MIDI processing and primitives for scheduling
the application of functions. Programs written in Macintosh
Common Lisp can use these services for a wide variety of
real-time MIDI applications.
Apple Macintosh family computer with at least 4MB of
RAM. System 6.0.5 or 7.0.
Macintosh Common Lisp version 2.0, available from
Apple Computer (APDA).
Standard MIDI interface (Apple, Opcode, etc.) and
Apple MIDI Manager version 2.0, or Mark of the
Unicorn MIDI Time Piece.
