The piece is so active up to now that it seems to end a bit too soon. Great sounds! And good mixing and delineation of your "sound objects"
nice variations on the raw sounds
Lots of interesting stuff can be found by slowing down a sound. I suppose this is a single slowed-down version of it? You could have tried overlaying 2 or 3 different versions (varying slow-down rates), and extend the piece a bit more, for example. It feels a bit short. But cool idea!
...do you know where these little clicks came from? Some artifact of the processing?
Very good short piece overall. Nice ear for choosing sounds and making connections.
the heart beat could probably get louder and more opressive to magnify this tension effect
surprising removal of background. Perhaps too much reverb afterwards. Was it in the sound you downloaded, or did you add it?
great "turn of scene"!
Very interesting choice of materials, and quite dynamic exploration of various angle of it. Really cool. One suggestion for the future would be to try to get as much variety as possible in the recording stage. Record at different distances from the microphone. Different types of microphone. Different rooms. Etc. A lot more of the piece could be "composed" already at recording stage.
this is a very good, gestural passage
good end of phrase. Not sure about the type of silence. Did you kill all background sound?
nice "performative" build-up
Nice track. With these kinds of "expansive" materials, I could imagine this being a lot longer, in order to let listeners take their time to get into the detail of each texture. In a longer piece it would also be interesting to look for other sonic connections between your three sounds, beyond just fade in and fade out. But good track overall.
nice gradual fade out of the seagulls
perhaps use a little more fade in at the beginning?
this becomes very funny, almost disturbing, coming right after the violent "explosions". Good track overall. In terms of form, it is very compartmentalized in two more or less unrelated parts (they are related as being "part of Disneyland", but that does not translate necessarily in sound). How could you have made the two sections interact more?
train sound could use a slightly longer fade in and fade out
Your crowd talking background would be more effective if it was on both channels (left and right)
at first I thought this was some kind of explosion or war!
The sound of these sirens is actually very beautiful.
MORE over the top! :-)
SO over the top! (in a good way)!
Very interesting track, in sound and in meaning. The raw sounds are already very interesting in themselves. The way you put them together (plus your one-line descriptive "program") makes for a busy, very nervous & anxious track as a sonic commentary of the fate of penguins. Coincidentally, I read this article earlier today: http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/james-lovelock-the-prophet-20071101
To magnify the idea of someone practicing flute while life in the rest of the house keeps going, maybe you could have mixed the flute as just one more of the "ambient noises" (lower the volume? Make a more intentional dialogue with the kitchen sounds? Make it sound as if it is distant in another room? etc). The idea is interesting. Good choice of ambient sounds.
...the abrupt cut of the continuous noise breaks the flow of the soundscape. Perhaps this was an editing slip?
Nice combination of sounds. The wind chimes, in the context of this short piece, may seem a bit mysterious, or lacking further development. It would be interesting to see how you would develop them (and also the swimming stroke "motive") if you extended this piece to, say, 5 minutes.
Very interesting choice of sounds, and good ears for mixing them. The A vs. B form leaves a bit of expectation that some combination of both sections might happen. Very good editing overall.
a bit abrupt entrance?
Really interesting take on the sound of the violin. A few clippings and abrupt edits here and there that could be improved, but the sonic idea is great!
[PS. No description for the track?]
good use of the low noise
great experiment with silence! perhaps if you had kept something pianissimo running through it, would a quasi-silence work better than real silence?
even though drone is in the foreground, the really interesting stuff is what you left happening softly in the background
@genbomb: yes, nice appearance of it!
yes, interesting use of gain curves - could go on for the whole track!
You used the reverse voice track too! Few people used it.
