For what it is
For what is is i woud say pretty cool... this could be used in a flash about cuba..and i like the way you repeated some of the stuff he said to get the point across...there was a little static here and there that was hard to get through and understand what he was saying but all in all i think its a usefull submission and i would hope someone can use it in a flash.. personally i would add some more music to set the mood a little better...
More music? Fair point.
The static was included in the original recordings and I didn't want to start cleaning them up as it'd kinda be less genuine.
Thanks for the review, man.
He shares your birthday? That's pretty cool! Nice vocals, good sound quality too. This might be useful in somekind of revolutionary flash animation as well. Keep up the good work
Cheers for the review!
Your review has a bit of humour and some nice, uplifting comments. I see a lack of any constructive criticism though - what should I have improved?
I give your review a reciprocal 7/10.
This was a really interesting way to put together various voice clips. Liked the way you panned the different voices, which could have made a really awesome surround effect if it was played in a hall. The background music fits the theme perfectly. Great use of effects.
For the negatives, there is some white noise which gets quite annoying after a while. And this isn't really music- more of a soundtrack to something...
OK, this was interesting for sure! Not really something I want to listen to over and over though :/
Thanks! Inspired largely by negativland. I wanted to make something that would make people think about Fidel Castro's words and maybe provoke some contemplation.I suppose I'd have to do much more to make it enjoyable 'music'.
I think the white noise is from the spanish-language track. I have no idea how to correct such things or if I could, without altering the sound...
The 'effects' are all achieved by copy/pasting or changing the volumes. Piano work mainly improv.
Glad you liked it and thanks for the reviews! Don't feel obliged to hand out 10s though, if you don't feel it's quite at that standard.
Another interesting song by you, with more lyrics, always cool. It's very interesting how you pieced the sound together, but it didn't really sound believable at all. A little boring with the background music too. Felt more like I was just listening to him speak.

This was kinda an experiment - an attempt to emulate negativland in my own style.
I wanted the cuts to remain 'obvious', just using repeated words and phrases to bring attention to a particular phrase or sentiment.
Here, I just wanted people to think about the importance of ambition and the success of Fidel Castro's rule.
I'll try and mix it up more next time.
Thanks for the review!
It was real hard to understand a couple of places in there but I guess it was okay. It got boring quick and plus even if I could hear the whole thing clearly I wouldn't understand to much of it because I don't speak spanish. It isn't really music which also kind of lowered it's score. If you made actual music I would be a little more impressed.

If you thought it was 100% Spanish, you weren't listening closely enough! Half the lyrics are in English. See my response to an earlier review.
I guess it just isn't to your tastes. Ah well.
Thanks for letting me know!
