    That sounds like hippie/junkie music. Yes drugs can make you see things that aren't really there.

    And I hate to sound like a junkie, but we would suffer the loss of so many great tracks had drugs never existed.

    And you couldn't have started like a week earlier?
    I just won the terraining contest for crying out loud :3

    You're not a junkie.
    You're just not ignorant.

    A spinoff of Bernard Herrmann's Psycho Theme! It's cool seeing how diverse our influences are :)

    Alright, here's my first wip. The working title of the piece is "Fracture."

    I won't give away what the story behind this piece is yet, as it is not complete, and the whole thing won't really make sense until it's done.

    On one final note, I would advise you that this piece is fairly low-volume, so it might be a good idea to turn up your sound a bit before listening.

    Comments and Criticism always appreciated.

    Submission? Did you read the rules? You have to post a WiP BEFORE posting a final submission to verify that it's yours, otherwise you can and will be disqualified.

    WIP = Work In Progress. In essence, we want to verify that your submission is indeed your work. I'm not sure if a screenshot of the tracks will suffice but it's quite early for a submission and there's always room for improvement. Thus, your current submission could be a WIP for a future updated version.

    For example, your piece has a nice atmosphere from the beginning, but the volume is a bit loud for the voices. The bells are a nice touch because they create a grim atmosphere. As for your strings, they do sound very synthetic but perhaps some reverb can help (I don't know what program you're using so I'm just assuming reverb is possible). At 1:09 when the strings begin repeating, it gets very repetitive because there isn't a lot of development going on. When the woodwind/horn (can't really tell) instrument comes in, it's very soft so if it were louder it would really add to the development. The part where the voices come in again at 2:20 seems a bit abrupt but I could see it being the climax of his insanity.
