I commented on death by malloc, The god of small things, Lord of the rings
It is an excellent creative piece! The background music fits the foreground robot voice well, and I really like how you let the voice follow the beat, it sounds like a song rather than a human voice recording. The increasing volume in the beginning does give the listener preparation to the loud music.
I really like how you made your voice sound like music! It really fit well with the robotic theme, and I think you really nailed what you were going for. The only issue I have is that now you can't tell what it is you're reading, but since you probably wanted that, it's fine.
I like the way you fade into an electronic beat, and then a largely guitar based, non-electronic rhythm. The robotic vocals make for an interesting final addition. By being so processed, they end up working as background more than foreground, which is an unusual notion.
Changing your voice into a more robotic one makes this a very interesting piece! By mixing your voice and altering it to match the beat, it becomes music rather than just a reading of an excerpt. This was very cool and I look forward to hearing more of your pieces!
The robotic voice that makes your voice unrecognizable serves the purpose of this piece as a piece of music, but it undermines the work in it's second purpose, as prose. I think that even though this is the case, the focus on music and composition and hearing beyond the filters makes this a really cool concept.
