Yes, he seems to be missing.

My only objection is that it seems weird to put something graphics
related as the maintainer of something audio related. Given the
history and circumstances that's an admittedly weak objection.
Do you have any interest in being the maintainer of these libraries?
Do you plan to actively work on them? For me, those two questions are
more important. Given the lack of response to your initial inquiry, I
suspect no one here is planning to actively maintain these libraries
even if the maintainer field is set to this list.
Have you asked around (say on Haskell-Cafe) to see if anyone with
experience is interested in being the maintainer?
I hope that helps,
