With this I tried to tell a story about a Duke that belongs to royalty who is very delusional and twisted. 

I tried to do something I don't normally do with instrumentation and I attempted to go for the film score level...

The reason this sounds a little awkward to me is that all of your chords are minor. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, but makes some of the borrowed chords sound like they jump rather than transition.

It sounds pretty impressive on a purely visual standpoint, and the awrkwadness was not often. Also, your endings... better this time but didn't seem to really be grounded.

I think it's very nice. I has an air of mystery, perhaps because the melody is a bit jumpy.

 

The initial idea was to express a feeling of being mentally unstable, delusional, twisted, sick, and evil, so the jumpy melody was intended. I think in order to express a certain mental instability something cannot be the same for a long period of time so to speak. It has to be unstable, jumpy, ever changing...otherwise it would've gave the feeling of a mentally healthy person.

When the percussion come in later during that high point it was this twisted individual's way of saying "Minions and slaves go unleash fury on these poor innocent people." 

I'm glad you guys enjoy it.

Nice. I like that tuba melody. He is quite the unstable old fella, isn't he?

 

Well I haven't mentioned this before but with the tuba, what I tried to convey was not only was this guy twisted and unstable but very gluttonous and obese.

Ok I admit I was playing The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky and there is a character in the game who is a duke that is exactly as I described.

Thanks.

My endings were always a bit odd so I'm doing much more research than ever before I start working on something new. 

I was actually told that Mozart also had difficulty ending his pieces too which didn't make me feel too terrible cause I mean if a legendary composer has issues with that then a basic nobody shouldn't have a issue feeling bad about it hahaha. 

But in general I am reading up on it and I was given a handful of helpful links to get me started on that so thank you all for enjoying my music as much as I enjoy the music you guys do.
