that's because the musician wasn't that drunken.

I kinda agree with Gargaj, this soundtrack demands something better then just cubes and a kaleidoscope effect.

Still, for the music:

Great Glass-like music (although more varied than a typical Glass tune ;-)), and I love the visuals and especially the direction. Pure art!
rulezadded on the 2013-12-01 21:13:26 by Kylearan Kylearan
The polys-in-quadrants with background changes didn't really hypnotize and was shown too many times, but the start and the fullscreen kaleidos near the end were really good.

I guess you need to "destroy" the poly renders in some more effective way to "sell them" the way the other groups do. :)

I recognize the knots from some downloadable generator I fiddled with years ago, but perhaps you were the authors of that too? Nice to see them in a demo, anyway.

Music was nice and hilarious :) for some reason reminded me of that demo with the snails+violins, remind me someone...
rulezadded on the 2013-12-01 21:31:15 by Photon Photon
@Photon: the knots come from some number theory described here. I certainly didn't write a public generator, and I somewhat doubt that you met the exact same thing in an interactive form, though not impossible of course.
