This is what a lot of kids are into these days. I love it, and I'm quite certain Schillinger would have had a hay day with this genre. Here's my favorite example of a good Dubstep piece. soundcloud.com/skunkshaft/…

Phil DiTullioDubstep is all short pattern layering similar to writing for video games. Composing in this genre is very compatible with Schillinger.
Christopher PaulWhen I outlined the Buffalo skyline, I imposed a graph to it, and took the direct pitches using a chromatic scale. Looking at what you did here, I can see there are freedoms of choice in not only mapping it out, but also fitting it to a diatonic (or other) scale. I gather at this stage it's the projected "ups & downs", or "frame of a wave" that really shapes the melody.
Christopher PaulMy constructed rhythm in this piece was all Schillinger. The way I went about choosing pitches was (at the time) purely done out of necessity. It's an older piece, but now that I'm actually studying harmony I'm beginning to understand how a harmonic sequence would work in conjunction with a 4 part rhythmic sequence, which is easier and gives a lot more control over actual choices rather than painstakingly splicing together loose notes that relate like I did here.
