Forget it; that's not possible.

The only system calls that are valid on an nbd device are read and
write; and for ioctl(), you can only use the ioctl()s that allow you to
manage the NBD device itself. Anything else requires extension of the
protocol, which I'm not keen on.

If you really, _really_ want to, you can try "ENBD", which does try to
provide this sort of thing. I wouldn't recommend it, though; you're far
better of by simply streaming your audio over the network. Try vlc, if
you want that.
