Yeah some serious effects! nice and kewl.

a very sunflowerish sunflower demo 8) lots of layers, lots of lights, lots of coolness. the tune is breathtaking.

simply rocks, the mood is overcool, the music is soooo good, launch tesla, sit well on your armchair, lights off, headphones, and enjoy ...
added on the 2001-03-19 15:31:33 by flure flure
Sunflower's best, in my opinion. An audiovisual masterpiece, everything fits together perfectly; the soundtrack by radix and lluvia, the graphics by saffron and yoghurt's code.

Wasn't too big on it at first, but after watching it in a demo set following Chrome/Damage and Volatile/Addict, I was smitten. So for best results, mix it in with some other layered, non-hardcore demos. Good music too, of course.

i only started to like it after i watched tesla several times. i still don't quite like the music in some parts, which is the only drawback i can find. rest is perfect sunflowerstyle.

Tesla is brighting proof that also in win32 good demostuff could be done. relatively simple but fast accelerated effects sparkle in our eyes and we dont find it obsolete or simple at all. it's so nice and worm and the music is so positive that we nearly cannot believe it's possible. downright a A-stuff!
rulezadded on the 2001-10-31 12:58:57 by crs crs
Simple effects? Well, it maybe doesn't look like it, but this demo actually features quite great (and certainly nontrivial) code.

The rulez is for the perfect, chilly ambient this prod has - start this any time of day, relax and feel good.

Alot better than Wonder IMHO, but it looks similar, so people didn't appreciate this prod as they should have.

Make no mistake about it, this is a well put together demo. But the style just didn't do anything for me. It was fine to watch once due to very polished look, but the atmosphere left me feeling cold.

if i think about this one with pure logic, it has all the elements of a typical 13-in-a-dozen-demo which could make me puke, not to mention the horrible muzak playing in the background. yet still it manages to be somewhat beautiful. just as lure said, "makes me dreaming". saffron is probably the one to blame on this, or the fact that it has enough graphical layers in it to make it almost noise in some parts :)

(now the fact that i'm giving thumbs up for something with a morphing 3d-face on it makes me feel myself DIRTY)

the excessive layering and blending sometimes hides the effects away a bit too much, but I guess that's just sunflower-style. and showing off fill-rate was still cool back in '00.

stunning music, mature graphics/coloring and great overall flow. relaxing.

There comes a time in the Demoscene world where you can actually turn the pages back a few years and find a Classic Demo that can really touch your soul.

It sounds like a stream of tears. But tears of beauty and wonder and joy. The simplicity of it gives it that mood. It is unstressed and SO relaxing to both watch and listen to.

One of the most beautiful demos I've seen... :/

Beautiful and ambient. Music gives me shivers in a good way.

Lovely music and that late 90ies, beginning of 2000, blending all the things awesomeness <3

Additive blending, Z-Layers galore and this damn lovely tune - after thirteen years this is still highly enjoyable - a-fucking-mazing!

Just a wonderful Chillout Style, i always love to rewatch that one from time to time. Only these days a bit tricky to watch under windows, without vsync some scenes are too fast and look destroyed.

Anyway, i really wished i could give a second thumb up for that one. Very Beautiful one :)
