Graphical sequencers have limits in their use as live performance tools. It is hypothesized that those limits can be ovecome through live coding or text-based interfaces. Using a general purpose programming language has advantages over that of a domain-specific language. However, a barrier for a musician wanting to use a general purpose language for computer music has been the lack of high-level music-specific abstractions designed for realtime manipulation, such as those for time. A library for Haskell was developed to give computer musicians a high-level interface for a heterogenous output enviroment.
