I commented only non-trivial parts, because I thought it is clear, that
'mapTime' is a 'map' on the time stamps and so on.

There are all four variants of whether a list starts and ends with a time
or a data body. The 'midi' package uses 'event-list'.

However in my applications I could use the safe 'unfoldrN' in most cases.
