See "Creating MIDI files" in the manual. To quote this instruction, the
\midi{...} block should be included at the end of the \score{...}:

\score {
  ...music...
  \midi { \tempo 4=72 }
}

In your example, the final curly brace of the \score{...} block is
missing, but you should try a structure like
\score{
  ...music...
  \layout{...}
  \midi{...}
}

However, there is an additional complication in your example, namely
\atonicKey, which seems to confuse LilyPond completely when it tries to
output MIDI. For some reason, the alternative definition of \atonicKey
that I proposed in http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/lilypond-user/2005-09/msg00035.html
seems to work, at least you get some MIDI output.

As always I have a simple question:

in a file setup like this I have no midi output, no matter where I do
put the \midi block..:
where can I put the \midi block?
