A Song of Dystopia (Finished)(Original)

Uploaded on Mar 5, 2014

(QUICK NOTE: Treat the flexatone part to be akin to a high-pitch set of tubular bells)
My first large Orchestral piece, with multiple movements, that I actually plan to finish! So far I've finished Movement 1 and am starting Movement 2! Give me critique or advice if you would on how it sounds so far! Thanks!

Movement 2 finished, movement 3 started! Woo!
UPDATE2: Movement 3 finished
UPDATE3: Movement 4 started
UPDATE4: Added more to Movement 4, not finished yet, still refining some parts.
UPDATE5: Added more to Movement 4 again, and still not finished.
UPDATE6: Starting to finish up Movement 4, blah blah blah.
UPDATE7: Sorry for the long wait, have had some trouble trying to think of what to add for the final movement. Anyways, final movement started, and very, VERY unpolished so far.
UPDATE8: Minor update, added a little bit more, continuing on with the last movement, which actually may not be the last. Perhaps this song will go up to 10 minutes.
UPDATE9: Sorry for being gone for such a long time, and sorry for the very minor update. Anyways, added some auxiliary/backing instruments to what I have currently, and will work on some more edits later on.
UPDATE10: Alright, I'm getting close to the end now, although I'm not sure if I should just end it at what I just added, which may be my result if I can't think of anything else to end it with. This might be the last update, maybe not, but possibly. If I can't think of anything else to add to it, then this is it. Thanks to everyone for support, critique, advice, and so on.

I haven't been able to update this song as frequently as I want to thanks to a lot of work apart from it that I have on my hands, however, I've had some free time here-and-there to work on it, and once I get a few hours alone with nothing else to do, I will try to work to starting or even finishing movement 5!
ALSO, regarding the recent addition to Movement 4 (the update made at the same time as this News update), the different instruments that currently are there are in polymeter, and I haven't added my 4/4 (counter)melody/rhythm/pulse yet, in case you were curious. (The polymeter is 5/8 between Vlc/Vla and Snare, and 6/4 with Vlns.)
