I like the chords, but I can't follow the construction of the pieces very well.

You should definitely stop using sibelius.

Really interesting stuff, though like Scott says, (and probably because this is for a movie), it lacks a more solid form... Still quite interesting ideas.

So what DID you use when you were turning it from an improvisation into a composition?

The two do sound quite a bit like some Scriabin harmonically, but as others have commented seem to be lacking when it comes to form. They might do quite well as film music so I think you've got some good ideas here. Can you tell us more about the film?

My head, I didn't notate it :p

I tried entering it into Sibelius but getting the timing right seemed impossible so I gave up.

The film's gonna be a documentary/sock-puppet melodrama on Scriabin, set to his music for the most part but using my own music for the fictional scenes.
