  1. Have you thought about adding scent codes to the MIDI format? That would make it possible to ‘annotate’ music, original or otherwise. I think it would be fun to scentify Smetana’s Moldau, or Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll.

    MIDI is flexible enough to allow such additions, but they’d need to be standardized.
