Evaluation


The rhythym presented was a soothing one, but after a short period of time, the repetition became an annoyance. There is a crescendo of sorts starting at the beginning as more and more musical intruments and unique sounds join one another, starting with a computer generated beat. There is multiple layering of computer generated sounds, metal drums, bass, vocals and many more items. The voice seems to be a secondary, or even tertiary, sound, though his voice seems to also be altered. While the lyrics are rapped/spoken his voice seems to be digitally altered to a lower octive and played beneath his unchanged voice.
