It's like each pixel is it's own demo.

This actually might be my favourite from the compo! Especially towards the end it got fucking incredible.

Awesome demo! A real trip for the eyes and the ears. Satori has done it again. =)

i liked the last part. though the demo was not exactly stream-friendly, so i should watch a proper video.

Just about perfect. The best demo in the compo and Satori will always speak to my subconscious in a way no other group can, so that'll make it even more special for me, objectively speaking.

This demo hit the sweet spot.

The whole thing just went directly under my skin and stayed there, unlike some other entries which were stunning yet sort of ... "obvious?" compared to Kobian.

The demo was very touchy-feely-emotional as well, at least to me. And that's a good thing. Thank you, Satori <3

The usual "dude, what :D" satori stuff
added on the 2010-08-08 04:03:50 by stijn stijn
Usual Satori stuff. Starts with lines and somehow has a more heavy interesting rendering as it grows up. Though, you have to be in the right mood to enjoy.

I almost get the feeling that there is some kind of "emperors new clothes"-thing going here.
Watching the compostudio and many of the comments here, you almost get the feeling that you're supposed to think that Satori demos are great, otherwise you just "don't get it"
Well, I'm going to speak my opinion here, and that is that to me, this simply looks like a bunch of buggy winamp visualizers layered on top of eachother in one big mess.
sucks added on the 2010-08-08 12:08:10 by Sdw Sdw
I must admit Satori demos are original (dreamy chaotic style, sw render). But they are not my favourite.
added on the 2010-08-08 12:25:32 by jack-3d jack-3d
The beginning was nice, but as the demo progressed I just couldn't stop myself from thinking that I need to finally turn off the winamp visualizer because it's driving me mad. I do admire the amount of work that has been put into this production though, so a piggie from me.
added on the 2010-08-08 12:40:50 by kbi kbi
I like how they completely discard common rendering paradigms and stick to their crude tech and even cruder (but very distinct and recognizable) style.

The downside is, that it's hardly real time anymore. Especially the first part seems to be very demanding on the cpu, running at 5 fps or so on a fairly recent i3. Maybe some proper multi-threading could help.

Some people enjoy watching the same batch of 10+ year old effects ported to every 20+ year old platform they can find. Other people enjoy watching winamp plugins demos. I don't see why one is more credible than the other. Either way, if it works for you and you can get something out of it, good for you. :)

This is great! Felt so fresh during the compo, really stood out from the mass. Great atmosphere and soundtrack. In deep retrospect it's slowly climbing to be my favourite in the compo.

Fails to display anything on either screen, just goes fullscreen black and plays music.
Worked in windowed, but at a low framerate.

Somewhat cool stuff, but too long.

Perfect marriage between music and visuals.
i partucularly enjoyed the final effect (kind of reaction-diffusion...?)

Absolutely massive track. Demo starts a bit slowly but gets better with every minute passing. Loved the feedback effects and this very distinct very software rendered down-to-the-last-pixel style. Didn't love the fps or lack thereof tho - using more than one CPU core should help there.

Should've ranked way higher but oh well, Satori demos were never particularly tailored for entertainment hungry party audiences anyway. :)

It's a shame this prod gets overlooked with the big players out there, because it's stylistically and sonically, very cool indeed.

i really like the soundtrack with it's well-balanced mixture of fucked up beats and smooth melodies. the visuals alternate between awesome and slightly ugly.
all in all a beauty.

On a second thought, all this stuff happening all over the place. As you watch it more and more you come to appreciate the underlying complexity and eventually fall in love with it.

So, devising from my previous comment: It is gorgeous.

Looks like Winamp visualisator with all that aliased lines and messed palette.
Anyway, the soundtrack is good.

I must say, I usually hate psychedelic stuff, especially when there's goa-trance involved ;)
This, however, is an awsome example for a good approach.
The tune is great and gradually builds up an arch - which is vital for the visuals to take effect.
The last scenes where just off the charts :) ... no, no substances involved.
