The MIDI Opera is a little homage to the MIDI file format.Due to its limitation composing songs with the MIDI synthesizer of my laptop was always an attraction to me. The sequencer software is simple, and cheesy melodies are clicked within a second.

The story of Gérald Midi is super simple. He’s an ambitious businessman, who works always too long in his little grey office – he sometimes even sleeps there. But Gérald isn’t always on top – he loves dreaming of beaches, girls, money,… his future life!
Only in his dreams he finds joy, love and adventures.
