[ros-users] Connecting ROS to a software (music) synthesiser?

Hi All,

We're trying to figure out a way to have our robot's beeps be a little 
more musical and on-the-fly generated so I'm looking for a way of piping 
ROS messages into a software music synthesiser of some sort (or 
synthesizer for those of you in the US).

I've found lots of stuff about getting ROS to play sounds or to say text 
via a text-to-speech synth but I'm drawing a bit of a blank on something 
that is more musical.

Before I go to the trouble of connecting ROS to something like 
Supercollider or Fluidsynth, I was just wondering if anyone here knew of 
work already being done in this direction. My Google-fu is kinda failing 
me on this one.
