After trialling a series of sounds of our video, we found that the 2nd version work a lot better. The sound had a greater connection with the video and didn’t disturb the composition. Personally I think sound is vital in creating a film as sound can evoke a completely different mood.
On reflection the reason why the second sound works more effectively is the empathetic tone which is provided with the beat. Whereas the first clip is rather upbeat and unappealing to the video
