    Ruben - did you play that guitar yourself?
    Going off that screenshot, it seems like much of your song is from loops - which are all well and good, but remember the song has to be 75% your own composition.

    Finally had a chance to start writing,
    just an unfinished midi rough draft, but it's a starting point

    http://www.box.net/shared/ofozlxk2g8

    I plan to make the song become more and more abstract as the song goes on, until towards the end it's a mess of seemingly unrelated ideas and glitch sounds.

    haha ^^ sure i did play the guitar! and there are no loops !!!! its 100 % all new recorded by me !!

    the drum machine is a vst plug in of my audio programm, and completly self created(copy and paste is allowed lol). (i could record myself, but i dont have the time to do this [content ends 27.03])

    btw: the piano is a recording of mine too !

    the bass effect was made with an effect vst plug in just like the drum machine (BY MYSELF !).
    (like the quiet high effect)

    i thought you can see these facts with this screenshot ^^ loops is for noobs ;)

    ^Don't double post.

    Well, to me it's obvious that you didn't use any loops after I listened to your song. However, it doesn't sound quite schizophrenic to me. Sounds like something Annihilator would do.

    Sides Of Music

    Ok this is my final contribution. i called the song "Sides Of Music" because it has some different styles in. and that is what we in german call "schizophren".

    some synonyms of schizophrenia:

    -insane (mentally ill)
    -psychosis
    -paranoid schizophrenia
    -emotionally disturbed
    -splitted mind


    and these are the things i tryed to descripe with this song. i hope you can fell as well.

    the outro is abit more "chilled" because:

    -its a disease ( thos ppl who are ill this way: it's not theirs fault! )
    -out of pity to those ppl
    -it gives the song a different mind


    the "double bass" and "speed" (you call it Annihilator xD ) describe the "problem inside" or the "inner conflict" (pls try to feel what i mean, i dont know how to better explain in english)

    well i hope you like it =)

    ps.: here is the link to Youtube (for those who dont like to download it ;) )
    *Rubinrox - Sides Of Music*

    and here is the downloadable file

    I understood what you mean, I was just expressing an opinion. It's really cool actually, love the lead part, although it appears to be off at some parts. Might I ask what kind of wah pedal you're using?

    Well it was close, but I made it. Here's my final entry. I've uploaded a youtube video in addition to the mp3 file.

    Fracture:

    Story
    This piece depicts a mentally unstable man's struggle to maintain his sanity, though he eventually gives in and his mind fully fractures. To begin, we hear dissonant, atonal music that represents the insanity within him, gripping him, whispering in his ear, tormenting him eternally. It grows and grows in strength, but so too do his attempts to bring peace to his mind, increasing the violent conflict in his head. Finally, he manages to restore some form of order, and is able to think clearly. It's not a happy existence, but it is a stable one. The insanity that previously gripped him is now replaced with a sort of sad calmness, represented by more stable, tonal music. But all is not well. The music grows more and more dissonant, depicting his descent back into madness, until, finally, his mind breaks completely, and he succumbs to it. Now the music is violently atonal, loud, fast, and terrifying. But finally, he can take it no longer, and taking a knife, he stabs himself to death and takes his own life. But in death he is finally relieved of his suffering, no longer burdened by his own broken mind. We once again hear the tonal music, but now in a major key, filled with consonance. Finally, he is at peace.

    Is the contest over when GMT reaches March 27 (After March 26 11.59 pm becomes 12:00 am) or when March 27 11.59 becomes 12:00 am (March 28)? I just want some clarification.

    I usually say "11:59 PM, GMT" in contest end times to avoid conclusion

    so basically when the date is the 27th and this clock hits 11:59 PM, the contest is over

    (don't use the UK clock below, because daylight savings time changes tonight and that might screw some things up)

    wip, trying a lot of things I don't normally do in this track


    I think I'll probably be able to make the deadline

    A new wip:
    http://www.box.net/shared/9a96g2ui9c

    I'll finish it up tomorow, past 2:06 is obviously still wip/unfinished (evidenced by the overall lack of percussion)
    Definitely need to turn down the guitar (I'd prefer actual guitar, but I'm too short on time so virtual guitar will have to do)

    This is it !

    "Is he going to do it ?" the Lilly asked.
    "Of course, we'll have to take advantage of that." the Crow said.

    "Help me find the gold and all of us will be rich with me king." the Leprechaun snapped.
    "Yes, yes, just don't let my parents see you otherwise they'll lock you up again." the boy said.
    "You were there all the time too." the Leprechaun mumbled.


    "How is he Doctor Chrow ?" Misses King said.
    "The sedative I've given him seems to have wear off" the doctor said sadly.

    "Now's our chance ! Let's make a run for it !" the Leprechaun loudly snapped.

    "I'm sorry madam but I'll have to do it again." Doctor Chrow said.

    "You don't unders... !" the boy said.


    "Is he going to do it ?" the Lilly asked.
    "Of course, we'll have to take advantage of that." the Crow said.


    Dannz is the boy of Misses Lilly and Mr. King. When his father Chaun died things got unpleasant.

    OK, I've already posted a WIP, so now here is my final entry.

    Schizophrenia doesn't mean a bunch of thrilling hallucinations. It is a mental illness, so it also has moderate forms.
    In my entry the main element is a clock. It's ticking is maddening.
