Aside from performing his professional activities, Dr. Refinetti is an amateur musician. The pieces available here were composed on the piano and arranged for various instruments, as indicated.
General Information
Various MIDI and MP3 files are listed below. You may listen to them by simply clicking on their play buttons. MIDI files are very short and can be downloaded very rapidly. This is the case because they are not real recordings but only sets of instructions to your computer ("music sheets"). Therefore, the quality of the sound depends greatly on your computer's musical talent. MP3 files are true recordings. MP3 files are relatively long files (several megabytes) and take longer to download. Notice that the piece Bioclock is entirely synthesized. All instruments and vocals were digitally synthesized on a computer prior to recording. More than just entertainment, this piece is a technical work of voice and instrument synthesis. Lauren and War have human vocals (poor as they may be).
 
Technical Considerations
Please be aware that standardization of sound software is very poor. If you experience problems while listening to the files on-line through your web browser, you should just save them to disk and listen to them after you exit the browser (using, for instance, the standard Windows Media Player). As a matter of fact, standardization is so poor that your browser may not even display the Media Player console (which you can use to pause or rewind a musical piece once it has been downloaded). If the console is not displayed, you can still listen to the compositions. In this case, the play buttons by the composition titles will cause a new window to be opened using the media player associated with your browser. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The Composer
Lyrics: Bioclock · Lauren · War

Bioclock

Biological clocks are biological structures
capable of timing biological functions.

One type of biological clock is the
circadian pacemaker, which is located in the
suprachiasmatic nucleus in the brain.

The circadian pacemaker generates circadian
rhythms. Circadian rhythms are biological
rhythms with a period of approximately 24 hours.

Our cycle of sleep and rest is an
example of a circadian rhythm.

Our body temperature oscillates each day.
Day after day, it goes up and down,
up and down, up and down ...

Lauren, my girl ...
She is my daughter,
My lovely daughter.

War

She was the first that I found
When bombs were exploding all around.
She was engulfed in the night.
I just wanted to stop the fight.

We ran very fast out of town
And raced as the rain kept pouring down.
We found a safe place out of sight.
We held to our lives with all our might.

And then, as we moved back in town,
A bomb came our way and killed us all ...
