I don't know.

has static fields and methods, and uses Procedure to build composite loops

class Kick extends Procedure {
  fun void run() { // make kick sound }
class Snare extends Procedure {
  fun void run() { // make snare sound }
Kick kick;
Snare snare;
Loops.append(Loops.append(kick, 200::ms), Loops.append(snare,
200::ms))) @=> Procedure beat;
Loops.loop(beat, 2) @=> Procedure measure;
Loops.loop(measure, 4) @=> Procedure verse;
Loops.append(verse, Loops.append(verse, Loops.append(chorus,
Loops.append(verse, chorus)))) @=> Procedure song;

But yeah the syntax is icky.
