I agree. And I certainly don't want to discourage you.

Every synth player should have a go at some 'Switched on'. If only
to discover that it's not as easy as it may sound. At least not if
you want something approaching the quality of Wendy Carlos' work.
Been there myself... 

IMHO for this piece, sliding the upward larger intervals results
in something that sounds overly sentimental, and that really kills
the serenity the 'Air' normally has.
