There's S-Lang which is newer than curses I think (and therefore the
authors must have had a reason they thought was relevant to reinvent the
wheel). I personally would probably choose ncurses over slang because of
relative ubiquity, but you can look into it. Mutt can be compiled to use
slang or ncurses.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
