I interpreted this song as though I was walking down an alley and ran into like a satanic cult. It sounded very similar to examples that Katherine showed us in the beginning. I think you did a great job making this piece abstract and your own, but one thing you could work on is cleaning up the distortion because it seemed fuzzy towards the middle.

I love the blend of what I think is the title track of Pan's Labyrinth with the drum and later noise. Very dark feel with a strangely quiet overall flow. Excellent work blending the dark with the mellow.

haha all i could think of was RIOT. and a ringleader raising up an army and i think you threw in some mario sounds which i immediately thought, FIRE. the song had a great closing piece where all imagined was a slow motion montage of the actual riot with pain and fear. GREAT JOB.

this song reminded me of like a super mario brothers version of 28 days later...its starts out very quiet with bells and what sounds like video game music and then becomes very demonic with explosion sounds and the end of the world kind of feel. i could picture myself walking through a demolished version of the "underworld" trying to escape all the dead turtles. i thought overall it was very well composed.

I think this piece tells a story. I interpreted the opening of the track as a changing society, as we move through the world and expand our technology. Then, there is this great chaos, which occurs for a while, before we turn to a changed society. The feeling is much more dark, the sounds are more static and feeling as though our own technology as our downfall....but thats just my crazy thoughts.

I felt like there is a story line in this piece. I loved how it begins, flows, goes to the climax, and then ends... Like reading a story. A fantasy story perhaps.

I think this mix tells something important or sad to someone. He/she made a problem, but he/she didn't know what is going to happen after. Because the mix sounds like dark and quiet, I imagined there is a serious problem somewhere in the world.

I love the way this piece flows at the start. Little pieces of things I recognize. Like breadcrumbs...

Then it gets too crazy... but slowly comes back to as close to sensible as it can.

This piece is actually really nice for this assignment. This truely feels like art to me.

Ominous begging, You used the Pans Laberinth song. Made me think of the piece as dark and dangerous. I imagined a story line in the song, almost like the Silent Hill movie. In one life then traveling through new and unknown areas. the drum in the background with the Pans tune made think of progression ceremony towards a 'building' then in the moment of passing through the threshold you find something other than was expected inside and yet is still dark in a new way. I felt like the observer watching an 'end' unfold for someone
The piece most definitely brought forth emotional feelings, made me think of historical events in which tragedies occurred. The shift from one to the next was great, and i trying to find the other softer sounds in the piece was good because as soon as i recognized something new it added more to the story of the piece.

I like this own, at first I thought I was some type of war music. It changes the mood from good to bad, or from live and death. It has a strong spiritual feeling.

this was an interesting piece i liked how it was from soft mellow and chill to dark and makes me feel like i wanted to think it was interesting in the middle then compare it to the beginning. Nice work kept me interested to hear for the next part coming.

Intro is very captivating, you keep waiting for something to hit. I don’t know why but it seems sad, and kind of reminds me of war, or a sad chaotic moment in time. Good use of songs... Great Job!
