Exploring Music for Speech

Along with making revisions and improvements to Reagan's speech, I've also begun to explore background music to solidify and support the audio and animation. I had some great help from my cousin, a true music wiz (thanks so much Kevin!) who gave me great suggestions.

This first one has potential because the song slowly become more and more chaotic, a lot like the progression of my animation sequence and the physical tearing of the wall. There is also a lot of cheering from the audience and I think this song could really support the passionate mood of the crowd in tearing down the wall.

I didn't actually watch any of these videos (just listened to them multiple times with my existing animation), so I apologize if they're sad. Comments in this video said it's a sequence of videos of destruction, so just be forewarned. Anyways, I think this video provides a good, solid rhythm and beat that would support Reagan's pacing throughout his speech. The ending of this song would also be useful and would be a good contrast against the destruction of the wall.

This third option also has potential because I think provides a modern, more electronic kind of feel that I think would adhere to the new ideas and modernized thinking of that time. The pace and rhythm would mesh well with Reagan's pacing and I think it could create interesting beats for the typography to anchor from, motion-wise.
