No, You should be loading a file called "cm.scm" not load.scm.
better read the readme.text... there is also an example file "examples.cm"
that should get you started.

No, MIDI is there but no real time connection. You can certainly write MIDI
files and then use an external player to play them. But as far as I know
Tobias has not ported MI_D to linux so there is currently no possibility of
real-time MIDI connection in CM except on the Mac. And MI_D wont work on OSX
so I dont know what to do about midi anymore except implement it myself at
some point. Its very depressing.

yes. and this sort of thing is possible in Guile -- its got a very tight
connection with C.  But I dont have any time in the next few months to even
think about it.
