I really like how you fused all these different songs together because they are all connected in certain aspects. However, I would suggest maybe not switching up songs so much because it was all over this way the audience could follow it better.

This one kind of went all over the place for me. I must say i love the variety (especially the kanye and the Jay-Z) but i cant really put a concept or a story to this, and then again maybe it didn't need one but i think it was a great mix and it was clean.

The vocal mix in this piece is really well done. I liked how most of the songs were all discussing similar topics, albeit in different ways. I can offer no advice or suggestions on this one; everything seemed spot on to my ears.

I felt like in this track, I was making a long road trip and some jerk in the passenger seat kept changing the station. I think this song could have been developed a little bit more by playing a more specific range of songs longer and playing with what can be done with a sample, rather than just running a bunch of samples together.

I like how various songs were put together in this piece. It made me feel like I was listening to radio, switching around different channels. I wish there were some more sound effects, not just songs. However I think the transaction between each songs were great!

although this track was very well composed i thought it started to get kind of random toward the end. at the beginning most of the songs related and then it started to loose me with the sarah mclachlan by in a way i could relate to it...

It's very low on volume, I'm straying to hear the actual music. I like the different variation of sound clips and how you manipulated them. The way that I translate your sound is how "relationships" tend to go from good to bad to good to whatever. It's cool but it really needs to increase the volume and I'm waiting for a "BANG".

It's very random, but it seems to fit together well. Lots of "chipmunk" singers.

First part of this mix was like a tropical island. I thought this overall mix is like a radio station which introduces songs this week. I think you tried many effects, and those worked well.

There is definitely a lot of randomness to it. I'm not sure that it flows as one piece all that well, but within some sections the mixing was done very well. Some dynamic range in the music would be good, as most of the song is super quiet and i think there are parts that are trying to speak loudly, but you held them back.

I imagined a slide show or TV and you have the remote in hand but instead of watching just one channel you're flipping through them pausing on one longer than another. I felt this as a representation of people or places around the world. How some are alike and some are radically different. The variety is good but if the theme is anything like what i thought id suggest maybe something that you don't hear often. Hiphop and rap genres are everywhere now. But maybe that is something u were trying to portray, like in radio stations most the channels tend to merge and blend to together in the music styles they play, Where some are definately different. The last bit of the song where it gets softer and eventually cuts makes me feel as though this listener/watcher is slowly turning down the volume and lights. They are cutting off and not listening anymore.
But this is how i feel as i type it listening. the use of materials for this was great you choose from many pieces. And being this is art i feel it worked well in its easy transitions and break offs. I feel they work together well. There is much to be derived form it.

it was a good transition between songs but it lost me quite a bit because it kept switching around try using less songs next time or bringing them more. Otherwise I like the song choices

Tina said...

I feel it kind of sounds like a music mix for a club. It sounds like all the songs have to do with money and strippers in the beginning and then changes. Volume seems off. I really enjoyed the ending because you added that last clip transition which had a good sound.
