  1. 1. How well does it work (on a scale from 0 to 5)

    • 5 (it fits pretty much perfectly)
      1
    • 4 (it fits well, no real problem to take note of)
      1
    • 3 (it fits except maybe for one part)
      1
    • 2 (it fits but some segments feel wrong)
      0
    • 1 (it barely fits)
      0
    • 0 (completely unfitting)
      0

I know this has nothing to do with ksp but that's what the lounge is for, right... So, I just need to collect data about this. Sorry if my tone sounds, idk, dry or something :/

The question is: does the music (The White River by Jeremy Soule) work with the clip in the video below (the intro of Shadow of the Colossus)

Note that it is normal for the video to have no audio except for the soundtrack. Also sorry for the somewhat the low resolution...

Visualize it once without thinking too much, then watch a second time and take more attention to the details in the relation between the music and the picture (timing, tone, etc.)

It should take between 10 and 15 minutes to watch the video twice and then complete the test. Please take as much time as you need. Watch on Youtube if not working here:

Once you visualized the video, please fill in the following test:

 

-First, how familiar were you with Shadow of the Colossus before visualizing this? This is important as this might affect your opinion on the video-musical correlation. Detail with one line or two.

This study is meant for those who knew next to nothing about Shadow of the Colossus, but you might still complete the test if otherwise, as long as I know that you're familiar with SotC.

 

 -Second, how well do you think that the music work with the video? On a scale from 0 to 5. (Important: do not compare to the original music of Shadow of the Colossus! The original does not matter)

(0 = completely unfitting; 1 = it barely fits; 2 = it fits but some segments feel wrong; 3 = it fits except maybe for one part; 4 = it fits well, no real problem to take note of; 5 = it fits pretty much perfectly)

 

-Thirdly, state the reasons behind the score in question 2. The closer to 0 your given score was, the more details I expect in this answer (if you gave a score of 5, it would speak for itself pretty well)

Please state which parts of the video you liked the most (if any) or which parts you liked the least (if any). If your score is a 0, 1, or 2, try to explain why you felt a clash between the music and video.

In any case, I need to know which areas of the video didn't feel right, if any.

 

-Lastly, write anything else that comes to your mind and wanna say. Anything really.

 

Write your answer this way:

1. "answer to question 1" 

2. "Score" (also give your score in the poll, it will be easier to review the overall public opinion this way)

3. "answer to question 3"

4. "stuff u wanna say"

The more data I collect the better. I know the purpose behind all this seems unclear (you don't need to know), but so is the purpose of launching rockets into Kerbol :P 

Thank you for reading that far by the way.

1. Score=0

2. Score=4

3. This game thing seems adventurous, and so does the music. However could be better

4. Nothing, really.

I really felt the need to bump this thread just in the hope of getting at least one or two more votes...I did read the guidelines, which are against "Any variation on the type of message that is used to needlessly bump threads"...The thing is this bump isn't exactly made "needlessly", at least from my perspective... Anyway, this is the only time I'll do it for this thread, and if this truly is an error then I'm sorry.

Never seen this game or heard the music, but i think it really fits with the video. From what i can tell, the music is following this guy's journey, and with the rain, it looks and sounds really nice.
