[Squeakland] Music and Squeak

I just got back from Tech Fest and was fortunate enough to spend some time 
with Tod Machover of MIT Media Lab. I was completely impressed with Toy 
Symphony's HyperScore program (www.toysymphony.net) and have been composing 
music with it ever since downloading it.

Basically, it is an application that allows children to 'paint' music. One 
does not need to understand music notation or theory. It is all done 
visually and aurally.

Then I though, this would be the PERFECT Squeak app.  My daughter spent a 
bit of time with Tod's daughter (10 and 9 respectively) and it would be 
incredible if they could collaborate in composition efforts a la Squeak.

Would anyone out there in Squeak-land be interested in talking to the 
students who wrote HyperScore and look at porting it to Squeak? Are there 
other music authoring applications that I am not aware of?
