Have made a melody but sounds not quite right

Hi everyone,

I hardly have any experience with music composition and this is the first time I try to make some 8-bit music on my own. The music I want to make is expressing peaceful with some sorrow, like the lonely or desperate feeling that people might have in space (endless darkness). I have got some inspiration from the soundtrack (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_nj-LnZqY-0 near 1:04) in movie 'Interstellar' and made melody of my version.

The melody now uses the instrument that I customized from reed organ from VRC7 patch because the main instrument in Interstellar is church organ. But the sad thing is that the melody sounds only peaceful but not 'sad' :(

I wonder what's the problem with the short melody and want to hear your opinions and suggestions to make it more sorrow.

Hmm ... I think the problem is that it's not clear what key it's in. I want to say C major, when (judging by the lack of sharps or flats anywhere on the notes) it's supposed to be an A minor. E.g. in the first four notes of your song alone you strike an E, G, and C -- the clear components of a C major triad. An A minor triad should hit the notes A, C, and E (try swapping out that G for an A and note the difference in tone).

Also, you have phase issues between your pulse channels when they strike the same notes. Detune one of them slightly (e.g. P7F or P81) to compensate.

You don't actually have to go too far with the VRC7 to make a nice sounding organ as long as you are willing to sacrifice 2 channels for it.

But I don't think I can do it well
