You might take a look at gneutronica, the result of me
scratching a similar itch.
It's surely not exactly what you're after, but
if you had in mind C, gnome based UI, alsa sequencer
interface (though, maybe a somewhat naive implementation,
as I was just learning all that stuff as I went) it might
be something worth looking at as an example, and there
might even be some code you could grab from it. It doesn't
talk to JACK... someday I might get around to figurnig out
how to do that, but it's not in there now.

Oh, well... maybe gneutronica's not what you're looking for then.
