How could you change the technical quality of the sound object? (levels; ambient noise; is it peaking? lacks in sound quality that unintentionally affect meaning?)

I thought the typing on the keyboard was a fantastic addition to the piece but I think if you also added the sounds from the iphone keyboard that the phone makes when it is not on silenced would be a fantastic addition as well.  The ambient noise goes along with the speech from Steve Jobs and helps to tell multiple stories at once.


What emotional response / narrativity does the sound object evoke? Does this align with the title?

The graduation theme song made me excited to graduate and also placed Mr. Jobs’ speech into a context without him mentioning graduation immediately.


What contribution does the sound object make to the overall portfolio? What suggestions do you have for the author?

The sound really tied together the other elements of the portfolio as it included many elements that you associate with the images and text in the other stories but now we can finally hear them.. I felt as if I could be in a museum listening to the audio while looking at images and be very happy.


In what ways does the sound object have complexity? (layering; dimension; mastering) What could be added or fixed?

The addition of elements and the blurring of audio and fading in and out worked extremely well and created a lot of elements to tell the story.  At some parts the sounds of the keyboard strokes were abit too loud in comparison but other than that it was extremely well layered.


Does the sound meet the length requirements? If not, what could be added or cut?



If the sound object uses appropriated materials, are they cited? How do they amplify the original material?

The graduation speech by Steve Jobs was not cited but no other material appeared to need to be cited.  


Additional thoughts?
