I think this piece definitely uses the foreground/background technique very well. Even though the studio noise is just as loud as the foreground voices, because the studio noise is consistent and almost droning, the change of pace between the repeating/reversing voices that you used draws my attention because of their dynamic nature.
The foreground/background technique is very apparent, especially in the beginning when the man's voice is the first thing to draw the listener's attention. When the man and woman are speaking throughout the piece the brain still gravitates to the speaking voices but the background noise is slightly more apparent. At the end, you make the contrast even more noticeable as the background seems to drop to a much lower volume.
