Do I hear a puppy dog whining right here? I know that sound all too well, that is why I can relate to this being about release. Although, I think this is more about the tension than it is the release.
Very creative, Tyler. I will now hang fly traps from the ceiling over my bed. One thing that stuck out to me, was how it seemed you enclosed the fly in the dumpster to let it collect its thoughts and sustinence. That was cool.
Caroline, I agree with your statment about this piece. You are taking long strides, just as any ambitious college student. And I understand that mode of mentality when I listen to this. At the end I was left wondering to see a reward for the effort, just to give some insight as to why you put forth the effort (in a metaphorical sense).
I got the idea of being distracted from a game, but I did not sense a tension as a result of this distraction. I think this piece would have been complete if there was a display of what the distraction means to you. I think the segments of people in the background were appropriate as compared to the segments of the game music dominating, but I wanted a payoff at the end that describes your reaction.
Kyoko, I first got a feeling of mundayne-everyday-zombie mode (might have been the copier and vacuum cleaner), but the end gets DISGUSTING! The slippery, liquid, scraping gives me the heebeegeebee's! Nice job! You took us to three different places with a pay-off. I think think the title is appropriate too. It has a "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" feel to it.
I think I am taking this piece at face value, but I get a sense of a documentary of a day in the life from this. There are some interesting juxtapositions, and I feel like I am being forced into multiple environments rather that just three. That's a good thing if that is what you intended.
This was put together well as compared to your initial approach. The blending of film audio segments is nicely done, but I wanted to hear more about the death of 35mm than I actually received from this piece.
Funky! I like it! The transition from one to two other places did not show through, but I think that's a good thing with this piece. I used a similar approach with my piece by coming back to the first environment in the end, but not quite as directly as this.
This is an interesting collage of sounds that raise a lot of questions. If I did not know the theme, I think I would have still got it, which is good. Although, I think you could have experimented with the sex sounds a little more to make it not as obvious as a squeaking bed and moaning, which was a bit straight forward.
I feel like I am remaining in one place during this piece, but there is a nice rhythm to it that I became comfortably familiar with half way through it. I definitely feel like I am waiting for something to happen, which leaves me wondering where I am going to end up.
