About Midi Files ~ These were transferred from C-Lab Notator (Atari ST) to PC (ie they're music only, no vocals or guitar solos, although I've put in some guitar tracks as guides). They were mixed using a Sound Blaster Live card. The instruments may not be properly audible with other sound cards (That's the problem with General Midi but it's better than nothing, I guess).

Harvest Song [1988~1990] ~ Midi file
Imagine an ethnic african tribe jumping up and down celebrating the harvest. I have no idea why I think of this everytime I play this song. Another "dance mix" type structure.
Long Distance Runner [1988~1990] ~ Midi file
Sometimes when you're just messing around with your favourite synth, you get lucky and stumble over a good riff. It's sort of african sounding. Reminds me of their amazing long-distance runners.
On The Horizon [1988~1990] ~ Midi file
During my "gamelan experiment" phase, I came up with this one which sounds siamese (thai). I also found that shortening the motif into other time-signatures sounded very interesting.
Into The Wind [1988~1990] ~ Midi file
If you've heard "Music For 18 Musicians" [Steve Reich], you'll appreciate this tune. I reckon it's better than the version done by Tangerine Dream for the movie "Risky Business"... but that's my opinion, isn't it?
After The Rain [1988~1990] ~ Midi file
A gamelan experiment : I took a few motifs from various traditional malaysian gamelan tunes and married them together to make this tune. Malaysian gamelan uses 4/4 time but motifs are in 12 bars... interesting, huh?
