Alright, I made some revisions to my piece. Not everything with the MIDI version is perfect (gradual tempo changes straight up don't work), and when I tried to add dynamics my computer crashed so there isn't any of that here either. But hopefully this will at least give you an idea as to where this thing is going.
How often do you revise a piece after you think you have completed it? How thoroughly do you revise it? What do you think does a composer's frequency of revision of pieces say about them? What do you think does the fact of needing to revise a piece say about it? Do you think that it is the mark of a great piece that it needs to be constantly revised - or that of a lesser one? I think the need to revise a piece might mean that one is developing as a composer, that the previous degree of care and consideration taken in judging a piece complete is no longer definitive or sufficient. It might also mean a piece is problematic, or that one was too quick to judge it complete. Alternatively, it might mean that the piece was subtle, seminal and/or full of possibilities and unseen potential that one failed to see or appreciate, let alone fully develop, at the time that the decision/judgement of completeness was taken.
