Fluxus is designed for live coding and uses OSC messaging.  It has MIDI
capabilities, and is scheme based like nyquist (?) but designed more for
openGL graphics.  It does have it's own synth engine, fluxa.

Check out Gabor Papp's Hack-a-day log for examples of fluxus live coding:

Fluxus is included in Pure:dyne, a live usb distribution, so there is no
excuse not to try it, and is packaged for fedora, ubuntu, arch and osx.

Compiling can be a challenge, it took some time to track down all the
dependencies, compile plt-scheme with the right switches then compile
fluxus, but by following the README file, I was able to get it done.
