Amazing achievement making everything so coherent. Visuals and music fits very well together. Brilliant work on all parts.

Really dull music and almost nonexistent direction, lack of color, weak dezign...

But is has EFEFCKSXTS, and they are (or seem to be) fast.

I wanted to ask for a 1920x1200 resolution choice, but then I realized that even in 640x480 without anti-alias it was running super slow on my 560ti...

That being said, very nice visuals, and the musics are not bad either :)

The amount of work deserves a thumb but other than that it's pretty wtf - it just never gels together in any shape or form. The parts themselves look okay but it's just so all over the place that ultimately it never allows the viewer to tune in to a frequency.

Nice models. Some strange camerawork (trophy/vase scene in particular). The demo had a few moments where things worked really well, but as a whole i thought it felt a little uneven. Talented guys. Looking forward to what might come later.

4 demos in 1?

Great stuff nevertheless
rulez added on the 2013-06-17 21:19:09 by wullon wullon
Nice - run almost flawless on my laptop in 720p. I hoped for a true action dnb part in the music - do an extended remix ;)

Some scenes look really really awesome, while others look "just" nice.
Gargaj does have a point though.
Best demo in a while though!

Finally a really good demo in North America!!!
rulez added on the 2013-06-18 03:58:33 by madbrain madbrain
Yep, it's got rotating thingies, camera-cuts-on-each-beat, some kind of generic motion-graphics design, and so forth.... Don't really see why people are making things like this? It feels like I've seen it a million times the last 5 years. Most demos look and sound like this. How about trying to come up with... some kind of fresh idea? I know it might sound crazy.

But what really gets me is the music. Please stop making this generic d'n'b/dubstep/whatever. There are already a million songs sounding exactly like this. A million one is unnecessary. It's muzak and it causes brainrot.

Wow. So much hatred.
Anyone care to make a video. I seem to be a bit impaired on the GPU side here... :/
added on the 2013-06-18 09:53:37 by raer raer
the music is meh. the beats are too thin. neither is there flow nor a base in it. all a bit random put together. weird. same as the scenes. but pretty awesome effects in each. so...

Why can't I select proper high-res resolutions? Capping at 1080p seems a bit dated to me...

raer: Scroll up! ;) There are 3(!) videos posted already.

Mhhm, wobbly poly-blobs and pushy "demo music" make this look and sound like a blown-up 64k from 2002. Nothing to be ashamed of, but nothing to write home about either. :)

Pretty much what Gargaj said, and it goes for visuals and music both.
However, apart from the lack of flow between the parts I like this a lot!

despite the missing overall coherence each scenes itself is pretty cool (especially the spectrometer scene and its buildup).
music fits the visuals pretty good as well.
nice job.

well, yeah it's kinda funny how Maxim Zhestkov, being inspired much by the demoscene and actually being starred at xplsv.tv so many times, is now giving that inspiration back =)

a nice demo! quite bland soundtrack and total slowness even on late top gfx cards are the main disasters though.

is the title the real meaning of how we should watch this demo, like, beginnings of kickass effects which in the long run will be used differently, with a direction?

It feels a bit patched together, hence the lack of flow, but each scene in its own right is very very cool and the track fits well in that regard. Small beginnings becoming big tingz :)

i like that.
currently just a bit puzzled why the music and the bass riffs sounded so familiar at places.
and besides that: why no 2560x1440 res?
rulez added on the 2013-09-10 00:04:30 by keith303 keith303
This. Fucking. Style. <3

I could prolly write something to every scene, because they all rule hard - but the one that sticked out the most for me was the waveform thing, not only did it play with the FOV but wow - it looks so damn slick :D

The other thing is the tune, a bass that is so staubstrocken I had to nip on my beer :)

Fuck yes, more please! =)
