In particular, I had an OSC server that translated OSC messages into lilypond code, compiled it into pngs, then displayed the results as HTML pages. The idea is that I'd have one central computer that would generate music (with Computer-Assisted Composition) and send it to musicians to sight-read on stage.

Wow! That sounds like really useful work. I've been thinking about this
idea for a while (real-time score generation), but never figured out how
to approach it.

I have the practical display side worked out, but I haven't started work on the actual generation of music. (I'll start work on that in a few weeks)

Since Sep, I've been tackling the problem of having the computer judge the ability of musicians, so I haven't touched firelily (that OSC->lily->PNG+HTML program) at all. I'm planning on rewriting it in python (initial version was in perl) and releasing it at some point, but my focus right now is the musician evaluation tool.

I'd be interested in contributing (some code) to this. Do you have a URL
for the most recent version?

There's no URL, because I haven't made any public release yet. Let me give my perl stuff a quick check, then I'll email it to you. My plan is still to rewrite it in python, though.
