Some nice ideas with ok music wrapped together Traction style. Can't go too much wrong. Not even near the best ones from the group but yeah, it's just an invitation :)

it's a bit boring though

well done

Pretty nice most of the time but I don't like the font and some scenes look a bit ugly. Nice invitation anyway, good music as well.
rulez added on the 2006-11-12 12:42:49 by StingRay StingRay
well done - I do like this "cubism" and the minimalstic touch. pure traction-vaganza...
rulez added on the 2006-11-12 12:44:40 by ck ck
great invitation with some nice scenes...

I really don't like this simplistic and boring style sorry! Much prefer the "Onwards" style.

is nice, i like! cubes for the win!

very intersting idea with the static box-explosion, wonder how that will evolve...

Very traction-ish as always. But I really like that style so thumb up.

natural media?
rulez added on the 2006-11-12 15:24:46 by linde linde
Natural media = sculptures, installations, pottery, legos, paintings, glasswork etc. Whatever you feel like. "Traditional art".

We hope you all come :)
added on the 2006-11-12 15:32:00 by Preacher Preacher
Thanks for the invitation.

However, the font is VERY old-fashioned. It didn't fit very well on Variform either, but worked much better than here.

rulez added on the 2006-11-12 16:27:44 by gloom gloom
There are millions of typographies out there! why use the same one that others demo use? :P It takes maybe 1hour to found 100 alternatives
added on the 2006-11-12 16:32:31 by mrdoob mrdoob
nice invitation!
rulez added on the 2006-11-12 16:36:12 by zeebr zeebr
There's actually a reason for it.. it was supposed to be a lot bleaker and more minimalistic, and the font was used in the cover of the Joy Division single collection Substance, so I got inspired and used that one.
added on the 2006-11-12 16:37:39 by Preacher Preacher
Thumb down for using wrong typography

rulez added on the 2006-11-12 17:02:12 by Gargaj Gargaj
nice and minimalistic visuals - i really like them. but the music lackesd something. too undefinitive and dull. too weak for proper electro, too teethless for dnb. i guess the creator wanted it to be like that, but i can't really enjoy. apart from that - cool invit, i'll try to be there!

I usually like Traction, and I'm not disappointed now either. Stylish as always. One of the few demos released at the party worth commenting. A Norwegian party, and the three best demos in my opinion came in from abroad. Kind of makes you think...

Simple yet nice. The texelized floor that reminds me low detail software rendering is funny, the music is quite nice, the cubes from the volumetric cube is like a modern version of that amiga effect in hardwired with the dots from a cube ;)

I've always liked minimalistic design in demos and this one has it so on that basis this is already awesome. But this also triggers some memories since this was one of the demos I tried on my really low-spec computer in 2006 and it worked just nicely. Also the song just kicks ass.
