Minute Left

To celebrate my new toy, a Yamaha YPG-635, I composed this short one-minute piece, which started as an improvisation of chords, now the left hand part, while ignoring the friends I had invited over for dinner. As for the title, I found "minute left" appropriate for this relentless march to a certain ending. Enjoy!

You may download and print the PDF or get the Lilypond source. Of course, you can listen to a generated MIDI file, but I don't know how to get it to sport the right nuances. A human interpretation would be great... does anyone of you know a pianist who would create this short piece?

Update: piqueselio put a good version on youtube which has a very good treatment of nuances, but which doesn't play the first sentence and the ending as I imagined them.
