Writing a Lisp interpreter is indeed trivial. Integrating a Lisp interpreter in a music server daemon, so that it has access to all the internal resources (and possibly event hooks), including libraries to access the Net, read various XML, JSON or whatever feeds, while still allowing Lisp collection operators to expose self-describing customizable attributes, and monitoring their behaviour to make sure they're running correctly, is not trivial. If you want to do it, you are of course welcome :-)
I qualified your use-case (play these as a unit, and these not) as special because I don't know any player (physical or computer-based) that would support it. However using collections it would be quite trivial to implement it in the client, as you have all the facilities to do it. A 30-line Python script would probably do.
