I really liked the tone of the background: it felt quite ominous and foreboding, just like the atmosphere of Hunt Library. That, combined with the repetitive key noise, created an ambience almost reminiscent of a horror movie or game. I'm not sure if this is what you were going for, but if so, perhaps starting with the theme would create even more momentum. The other sound effects (sneezing, table) could then be added in incrementally.
This one was so interesting. I didn't really realize you had used a sneezing sound until I read the description, it sounded like the sounds the velociraptors made in the jurassic park movies. That coupled with the sinister track worked to make a scary atmosphere!
You did a great job of creating suspense through your continuous beating sound effects as well as the low rumble in the background.
I agree with Ivan, the tone in the background was very ominous. What did you use to get that sound? You said your original goal was to have people pay attention to the specific sounds, but it seems like you isolated the context of these sounds so much that you can't tell what they are easily and blend into the overall theme. Overall the theme is very sinister and its done very well, I'm just not sure it hits what your original goal was.
