OpenMusic is a visual programming language based on Common Lisp and CLOS. It is icon oriented and its control structures interface with the corresponding Lisp ones. Although OpenMusic has been designed for Music composition, it may be used as a general purpose language.

See for more details.

OpenMusic was originally developped at IRCAM for MacOS using Macintosh Common Lisp (MCL). It was ported on Windows XP in 2005 (using Allegro Common Lisp).

The source code is distributed under the terms of the GPL.

A port to CMUCL on Linux was done by Gerardo M. Sarria M. and Jose Fernando Diago.

Another port to SBCL is to be released.

A port to Linux, using LispWorks, has been available since august 2013. See for more info.
