Overtone is a music programming & synthesis system based on Clojure, a modern dialect of Lisp. I'll show how you can use it to create a very simple DSL for live-coding drum loops. I know little about Clojure or making music, so I apologise in advance for what you will hear.

David Barbour defined an "insane language" to be one where you can ask the same question over and over again and get a different answer each time. Overtone and many other live-coding environments for music rely on the fact that the Lisp family of languages is utterly mad.
