I suggest looking at software synthesis packages like csound
(csounds.com) and in particular these projects, in no particular
order:

* the csound variant icsound, which has a python extension
  (http://leporello.agnula.org/~maurizio/icsound/)
* pythonsound (http://pythonsound.sf.net)
* athenaCL (http://www.flexatone.com/athena.html)
* pysco (http://www.slinkp.com/code)

Hope that helps.
