Interesting

A strange choice of musical blend to lend to this particular piece - I love the vocal sample, but it sounds quite upbeat and quickly paced to be tragic as we all know the Challenger disaster was.

I think that as we listen to the vocals, there was a feeling of loss there, but this could have been put into perspective with the music by some sort of slower solo that stepped away from the pace of the beat and allowed people to come to terms with a tangible sense of grief and loss that this scenario embodies.

Thanks for the review. I was hoping that someone would take the review from an emotional angle so I could see how my artistic viewpoints were being presented. The synth was supposed to symbolize the moment that the craft took off, the piano break symolizes the error. The synth playing muffled behind the piano shows how the crowd below was unaware at first, then when it all comes together, the synth becomes pandimonium, and the piano still resembles tragedy. After the tragedy is over, the pandimonium continues, and the speech fades back in. Thank you for the reveiw.
