Why is it important to play the midi file during generation?

I'm using Lilypond to print the results of an algorithmic music program written in Python.

I'm looking for a way to play the results as they are produced (i.e bar by bar), and it occurred to me that simply playing Lilypond midi files with a midi player would do the trick. However, I can't figure out how to get Lilypond's midi data sent to stdout, where it could then be read from stdin by a player. Whatever I try (including python pipes and even plain shell pipes) it just writes the file to my home directory.

Is there any way around this?
