Tom, this isn't exactly what you are looking for but you might be able to 
glean some ideas from it.  Dave Griffiths' Fastbreader does use Genetic 
Programming (written in Python) to create a lisp like expression for sound 
generation, the user selects the best of four sounds as a fitness function.
