I would introduce a baseline after the 8th or 16th beat.
Definately. It has space which is good, but there's no real low end depth in there, making it (to my ears at least) sound not quite as full as it could. You have the piano playing C to C octaves towards the end, you could maybe try doing the same with a bass line playing 16th's. It doesn't need to be too prominant in the mix, just enough to be there.
Also consider a key change somewhere to keep people's attention. If you stay on the C you'll have to come up with some pretty radical rhythmic or tonal changes to keep people's ears tuned into it!
You're definately on the right lines though. Whatever you do try and maintain that space you've created, and be aware that every sound you add needs it's own breathing space. Sometimes you can put lots of instruments in the same range and create some really interesting tonal textures, but it can quickly start sounding messy as well! It's a fine line, but experimenting is always good! You obviously have a pretty good idea of what sounds right or wrong, which is rare in itself.
