One of the largest challenges facing computer scientists is how to harness multi-core processors into coherent and useful tools. We consider one approach to shared-memory parallelism, based on thirty year old ideas from the LISP community, and describe its application to one "legacy" audio programming system, Csound. The paper concludes with an assessment of the current state of implementation.
