Piece Comment

Review of The Tomato and The Big Apple

The way the piece was constructed made it sort of interesting to listen to. On several occasions, I kept expecting to hear actualities, but the narrator instead went on with her story, describing what happened in her own words rather than playing clips of the action. Some of the time I didn't mind that, but other times I felt myself wanting to hear more. Good use of ambient sound behind the narration, though.

I like the informal and conversational tone of the piece. I got a good sense of what the scene was like.

There were a few times around 9:10 and 14:03 when the narrator cleared her throat or re-started her sentence. I'm not sure if that was a glitch or if that was intentionally left in as some sort of modernist convention, but I suspect the former. Either way, if was a bit distracting.
