This is very minimalist. VERY.
There's no beat, no bassline, it sounds like a 8-bit piano concerto.

However, some of the chord variations sound off-key, or detuned, especially near the ending, making it dificult to listen to.
And some of the phrasing, mostly near the middle, sound like basic scales.

There's some ways of improving it, you can hear the works of Chopin and see how he backed his melodies by strong chords, sometimes with unusual chording voices, but they all worked.

Of course, Chopin is one of the biggest musical genius in history, and i don't expect you to be better than him, however, learn the easy parts and see how they connect to each other, is a great exercise in learning chordal variation.

It is very hard to play on a PC keyboard that only has 2 octaves available plus very limited ways to press keys so that they'd register :P
I got no musical education and I only play bass guitar a bit, so I guess I did pretty good ^^
EDIT: I am aware of some offkeyness, it was intentional... except the last 30 seconds, I jsut randomly hammered the keyboard hahahaha

I guess this doesn't really have any chance since it's not really composed/arranged music, just a recording of some live "performance"...
