    Thanks for the feedback. I know the dubsteppart is a bit weak, but I'm working on it. I'm going to work on the drop too.
    You're right about 1:08-1:36 too. I'll look into it ;D

    The basic background sounds right, but the beat turns it into psychedelic. :/

    I can't hear it.

    Not bad imo. Suits the theme quite well.
    Just one false note that irritates me ALOT.
    (At 0.28 you add a new sound to it with 3 notes that repeat a few times. Your main 'melody' of this part is in 2 pieces. A melody line then the 2nd part a line that looks like it but is a littlebit lower. At 0.31 your 2nd part of that line starts but those 3 notes that entered at 0.28 still stay there. If you would move those 3 notes down by half a note (Dunno what note they are but if they are let's say an A, make an A flat of it then). At the moment they are just very false.)

    But apart from that it looks really nice so far. Keep it up!

    Alright, here's the WIP, I could hear the other one just fine, but it had been shorted down for some reason. And also, I hear some background beeps that I don't know what is.

    Alright. Here's a new update: http://soundcloud.com/smoke_your_veggies/schizophrenia-wip-3
    @Teun, I noticed your comment too late.
    You're very right and I tried fixing it before but apperantly, I didn't do it good enough.
    I noticed your comment too late to still fix it in this version but I managed to make it sound less off by working the pitch knob. Thanks for pointing out it still sounded bad, though. I hope it doesn't bother you in this version :3. You can just skip it though, I didn't really change much in the intro, just the dubstep part.

    @lexalex: IMHO, the guitar sounds really random and although it seems to contrast with the darker background by being a little quirky and more consonant, it doesn't harmonize well with the piece.

    @krl70: Your piece sounds quite melancholic and sad but doesn't invoke "schizophrenia" yet. Perhaps later on you will introduce something to change this.

    Yeah. As you might hear I ended this part with a chord. Opening to quite a lot more possibilities.

    @Lexalex: Agree with JFI.

    Hey guys, I write music, and this sounds like an interesting concept for a song. May I join? If so, I will begin working on this immediately. The first post said you're still accepting more applicants, right?

    Thanks :)

    The contest is always open to applicants as long as they can show a WIP (Work In Progress) and submit a finished piece by the deadline. Good luck! :)

    lexalex, I really like the beginning parts where it repeats because that, from my interpretation, can convey echolalia, a symptom that some schizophrenics can suffer from (because of formal thought disorder) where he/she repeats phrases constantly. I'd like to see more development and textural variance because right now it doesn't progress much. Still very interesting nonetheless!
