Guess I must be weird, but it didn't seem depressing to me. Maybe I just 
like that style of music? I do really like Kraftwerk. Nowhere near as 
melancholic as Rachmaninoff!

I have a couple of songs in my collection from a Russian band called 
AcousticBoot. The text in their band information in the old MPS3 is in 
some character set my system can't display! Band name "Àêóñòè÷åñêèå 
Áîòèíêè" and a song title "Êîãäà ìû áûëè íà âîéíå (íàðîä)" ("When We 
Were On War" according to the English filename). They're much gloomier 
than yours!

How did you make the instrument sounds?
