Interesting combination of songs!
Nice effects too..I love how the voice changes from high to low at the end.

Ska.

I like the music.

It's sound almost completely random, however. I would like it a bit more if the songs connected in a way I could understand rather than just 2 minutes of clips that feel completely separate from eachother.

It seems to be very choppy...which could be easily fixed with finding some sort of way to transition which could even be by emphasizing the chopiness. Maybe take a small bit and repeating it with a crossfade into the next bit. The most successful part is toward the very end right before the last clip. It's a lot smoother than the rest. There's a good cohesion to the song by using a similar pitch effect through the whole thing.

I like the use of ska because we haven't really seen this style yet. I think your choice of songs could have been more organized and the alterations made to the vocals were distorted. If you just clean it up a bit it could make a great song.

This piece reminds me again of the road trip with the unstable station changer in the front seat. I'm not really sure I understand what this piece is trying to accomplish. It feels like a bunch of samples strung together. One thing I like is that at least the samples have been altered to give it a different feeling. Maybe working with a way to bring the song together, both with and overall premise and ways to transition and make it work better.

Ahhh i LOVE Streetlight Manifesto!
great music choice it went great with the composition you came up with. I think you let the songs go on a little bit too much at times you should have thrown in some more to catch our attention but good mix.

Its kind of interesting how I think it started with a low volume but by the end I think it was normal. Did you manipulate it so or did my hearing just adjust to your sound? Weird.... But liked it anyway. I interpreted your piece by thinking perhaps its how to act through life and just don't care about others but rather be yourself. I liked the flow of it but some clips needs better transitions. At one point it seems like someone was critiquing someone else's life in a harsh way. Good job in all!!!

this mix seemed to be alot different from the rest, i really liked how you incorporated the words especially at the end, i think it made the song alot stronger and meaningful. i really enjoyed the upbeat ska sound and the high and low pitch contrast. i can tell you had fun with it...and at the end of the day... thats all that really matters! =)

I think your choices of intro and ending are very good. The songs you chose reminded me a circus team. I guess that's because I could hear voices of many people. I think your use of effects works well.

First off
i had to imagine this as if it were a recored ransom note. It had its own message though other than the bring such-n-such money to such-n-such location if you want to see your dog again.
Out of all the other pieces up today your was the first to incorporate i different genre of music. It was like a message to someone and if you listened to all the words a kind a poem like note can be deciphered outa it. Thats the only sense between the pieces and can get. your use of the audio adapting tools is great though good job there.

I like that most of the track is a high a pace to keep your mind. I just wish most of the song didn’t sound like the same voice value. But I like because it something different I have not heard yet.

Hmm
It sounds really random as if you just chopped them in together cause they don't feel like they flow to much when I listened and I listened to it about three times and I still don't feel it. I like your choices in sounds but you can work with them a lil more. Otherwise good voice changes they were funny.

There was good use of the effects tool. A lot of different songs used so it keeps you surprised.
