Sorta boring and maybe should have a little more variance, but still very interesting to look at.

I like those visuals a lot and also the sync to the sound is great

Visually and aurally extremely pleasing synesthetic experience. Easily the best production of the party.

noisy noise is noisy
sucks added on the 2009-08-16 12:10:28 by nemesis nemesis
Wait... Was that really a demo ? I mean, noise in the speakers, noise on the screen and a grey cube, during about half an hour, and then it suddenly stops... Well at least the fact that it actually ended should deserve a thumb up :P
sucks added on the 2009-08-16 12:19:54 by flure flure
Very long and very noisy but definitely my style. This one rocked in some way

if it doesnt work on ATI (shader compiler error) try http://gargaj.umlaut.hu/temp/xenocrates_patched.exe

extremely pleasing synesthetic experience

the only problem I have with that is the the synesthesia came from what i assume to be a few shaders wired on FFT values: the cheap way.

the demo started out fantastic, really set up the atmosphere, and then for the last minute or so just failed to evolve and go anywhere. so disturbingly anticlimatic. :(
added on the 2009-08-16 17:39:33 by Gargaj Gargaj
Nice atmosphere!

What Gargaj said.
added on the 2009-08-16 17:48:43 by Preacher Preacher
First I thought "boring" but then I enjoyed the atmosphere of the demo. And I was curious about, if something more will happen or not. (For example the cube could explode at the end with a big loud booom without warning or anything else).
rulez added on the 2009-08-16 18:09:20 by Chainsaw Chainsaw
Only one effect, and no music?
Most 4k:s have more content and direction than this.

This is bad even for a first prod.

It doesn't come together for me.

works really well

I rather like it twoards the end. It gets more and more intense. Best noise demo yet imo.

nice

I don't like these so called "Noise" demos, but this one is the exception to the rule...I actually like it.
The electricity buzzing out of the cube is a really nice effect the sounds fit very well to it. And I like the atmosphere of the demo.
*brrzzzz* ;)
rulez added on the 2009-08-16 22:30:13 by Skyrunner Skyrunner
I liked.
great
rulez added on the 2009-08-16 23:20:21 by Grz- Grz-
I'm not so much into "noise" demos but I can see how this is goood.

criticism: more syncing next time -- the music has much more details than the visuals!

I can dig this. as TFT said it gets more and more intense which I like.
rulez added on the 2009-08-16 23:43:41 by Prot-DHS Prot-DHS
yea, but who said that "art" has to be pleasing.

the nuance demo was definitely not bad, either..
added on the 2009-08-16 23:44:19 by xyz xyz
Hm. Not my type of demo.
added on the 2009-08-16 23:55:15 by raer raer
good enough for a noise demo :)
rulez added on the 2009-08-17 07:46:29 by BarZoule BarZoule
Hmmm... Almost 5 minutes of one noisy scene with noisy sound? And it is not even 4k... Hmm again...
I do not know why I do not thumb it down. Maybe it hypnotyzed me? :)
added on the 2009-08-17 11:01:23 by stan_1901 stan_1901
I liked it, the sound and the visuals were soft and crunchy like the soil of a nice forest.

Surprisingly cool.. but horribly non-commital, very anticlimactic, which was a shame.

tooo long, and totally not my cup of tea
added on the 2009-08-17 11:11:07 by Premium Premium
how is it that these demos almost always come last in the compos... The production values, longevity and controversy are of much higher order compared to whatever wins or comes second... :-(

With a decent music instead of just noise it could have been good.

Stopped after watching half of it.
It's ugly, boring and pointless.
sucks added on the 2009-08-17 18:21:48 by Paranoid Paranoid
I almost feel like thumbing it up, since it's probably pretty successful at what it was intended to be.. but I feel that would be a common mistake (almost like a fallacy of some sort). It's just not really something I want to spend time seeing. I could imagine the visuals being used for a few seconds as part of a larger demo, or to set some atmosphere at a certain point in a game even.. but it's really to me more of a demonstration/experiment of some potential than a product I'd actually like to experience on its own.

I am surprised that I like this, but I totally do.
(Maybe just because I meant to get some Hellraiser references...)

I am probably from different planet. How can anybody like this? I would never play this on any party showing this is new "demo", people would laugh on me. It' not a demo, it could be one part of unfinished demo 10x looped.

After seeing the video, I don't think this was played correctly when I first saw it almost three years ago. Fucking brilliant, definitely a stand out from the last few years for me.
