Thanks to Admiral Bob’s beautiful pella, the guitar and the key suggestion. These last two made me easier to harmonize the piece. This is the first time here I am able to work again with the “graphical” aspect of the musical language (the notation, with which I am a bit more confident), rather than trusting my untalented ear; and this throw me in the past, 10 years or so, into my first “musical spring”. I resisted the temptation of removing dust from my harmony and couterpoint manuals to avoid to remember why I discontinued my self-training in music theory. Therefore, I’ve not overcomplicated the harmony, and I think it is better so.

About the mixing itself, I think I could work a bit on panning and levels, but I’ve not found better “values” yet.

Hope you like this.

About MIDI files

One is the export from Rosegarden, containing basically everything. The mix was done recording the output to Ardour, so volume and pan are not set reasonably.

The other is the drum pattern exported as MIDI from Hydrogen (no proper mapping to actual drum instrument is done).
