Change traditional BGM mode to "play music by performing notes in realtime"

Change traditional BGM mode to "play music by performing notes in realtime", we are using 3 or 4 tracks in next update:

1. track 1:main melody

2. track 2:assist melody

3. track 3:rhythm drums


How to implement:

By using JSON file to store the sequences of notes, and timing of each note:

1. instrument: used for which instrument to perform this track

2. volume: used for volume of this track

3. note: sequence of the performing notes, and value after "." is used for how long(timing) this note will be performed
