    Devine your song has definitely improved production wise; now the newly added elements really indicate that the piece has progresses. The dubstep part is still kind of abrupt and so are the distorted tones. Perhaps you can make the distorted tones come in earlier but start from a low level and fade in. Although it sounds nice to the ears from an overall perspective, it's hard to feel the schizophrenia.

    Lex, I honestly preferred your earlier pieces, but gj anyway.

    Look forward to seeing the results of the judging.

    It's really quite interesting how there are a lot more WIPS in this contest compared to the previous one.

    Deepblade, I really like the three-part dialogue between the bells, horn (or tuba?), and strings because it kind of represents what actually happens in schizophrenia patients: there are multiple voices (but not personalities to be technically accurate) speaking and this shows through with your orchestration. The drop in pitch for the strings towards the end is a nice addition -- a descent into madness.

    Sir you just know what you're speaking :). I should call you a seer. As interesting as that drop to madness using the pitched strings and a growling piano note may sound I don't really think it fits with the rest of the song. I'm having a dilemma whether to include such a mood or not. Yes, that is a tuba, at least that's what the program says.

    If I don't finish perhaps I could judge instead. I have finals week coming up =X

    @Deepblade, it actually does fit in but kind of abruptly. If you did the same thing throughout the song in increasing intervals of intensity, then you can actually lead up to it quite well. The descending strings allows your song to transition to a much deeper and violent part.

    Great! So how do you join?-------
    Also, must the music have lyrics, or can it just be sound?The reason I ask this is because ive made zombie sound effects before, and I think i can use what I do to make those to create an "insane" piece.
    -------
    Heres a youtube video of the zombie sounds ive created.

    Mr.Pockets, your song need not include lyrics because they won't be accounted for in the judging anyway. Best of luck!

    Kallimachos it would be best if your WIP was an audio file because it's hard to tell from the screenshot what notes are actually being played etc. If this is indeed not possible, then the screenshot would suffice.

    There's no requirement for lyrics
    Did you read the rules post, that's quite clearly indicated.
