I installed Swami from the Software Center but when I try to open it, nothing happens. What's going on here?

try running the application from a terminal - does any errors appear in the terminal? If so, please add these to your question. – fossfreedom May 14 '11 at 22:03

Like many MIDI applications, Swami requires the JACK Audio Connection Kit to be installed and running in order to operate.

Installing and configuring JACK is beyond the scope of this question. A good place to start learning about it is the documentation for Ubuntu Studio.
