Free Background Music 25: Memoryne
Memoryne is the 25th song in the Free Background Music Series. It is a gentle and melodic piano instrumental. The mood is nostalgic; it is somewhat sad, but light at the same time. Though it is classical in style, the harmonic progression is inspired by the jazz standard My Funny Valentine.
