Awesome in many ways: music, design, mood, everything \o/
rulez added on the 2014-07-27 10:58:11 by Triace Triace
Typical raymarching, many scenes, filter and colors makes it look good, music is slow but creates mood.

very nice!

Solid sphere tracing of standard fractal things, nicely tuned.
Bored the hell out of me, almost fell asleep - not sure whether that's intended ;)

Totally awesome 8k :) Love the harmonic chillout mood of it! Virgill is not only an awesome musician, he is a great coder too :D

Wonderful! The music is ace - wonderful chordprogression and melodies.

Typical raymarching indeed, but the consistency of the different scenes along with the pleasant music make this easily up-thumbable.

lots of contents in there and a good overall design

Congrats again, Virgill! :)

Lovely stuff though the typography is not up to par with the rest of the intro. Never before have I enjoyed watching fractals sinking into chocolate milk this much.

Apart from the really uncreative fractal content, everything in this release is great.
Love the music, the colors, the postproc and the general ambience.

Wow, your intros already look better than mine! :p
Ace job on the colors, the filters and the design!
Splendid tune ontop! (But who did it? CONS/TRSi or you, Virgill? I see you are credited here on pouet for music...but what did CONS do then?)

I like the opening scene, reminds me of some turn of the century 64ks. Other than that this was mostly seen-before. Some nice production details in the music, but ultimately not my taste.

rulez added on the 2014-07-28 22:02:19 by emoon emoon
It was too slow paced for my taste. I mean, either go all the way and make it chill or spice it up a bit. To be honest the music wasn't really my thing. Overall execution was pretty nice. Great work on the details. I'm unsure about the whole open/close-effect but thumb up for the effort. Stuff like this is impossible to gibve a piggie.
rulez added on the 2014-07-29 07:26:40 by numtek numtek
I like the “cathedral scene”! The rest is of course pretty great, but a bit déjà vu – fractals. Congrats though :)

rulez added on the 2014-07-29 12:19:52 by Muximori Muximori
Quite nice and tastefully done, thanks. I didn't quite like the "border effect" though, as it pulled attention away from where stuff was happening to the edges of the screen - a plain gradient would have worked better, I think.
rulez added on the 2014-07-29 13:02:42 by kusma kusma
kusma: especially the borders make this one nice! :p
We all forgot about some "design" by now...atleast in 4Ks!
(my first 4k (winning tUM 2008) had those cubes at the borders, a try to bring back "design" ;) )
rocks!
rulez added on the 2014-07-29 15:38:38 by dstar dstar
That was surprisingly good for a "rotate object at center of screen" type of demo. :) Very stylish visuals and great color-scheme, making old effects pleasant to watch. I also liked the border effect, although that may be the oldschooler in me. Oh, and LOL @Preacher's characterization. :-D

The music I didn't like as much, until I belatedly realized this was 8k only. %-)

rulez added on the 2014-08-01 15:24:40 by Daddy Freddy Daddy Freddy
Massive respect! Loved the music really much, finally some chord-progression that hasn't been used a million times before. Dr. Headcrash will rule the scene for another 5 decades now.

Gorgeous! Fantastic music and pretty good visuals.
rulez added on the 2014-08-01 16:00:06 by ham ham
Seen-before effect, yes. But a polished production, including the music.

I'm tempted to vote it down for the one strange exception, the inconceivably horrible text, jesus. It will be a rulez, but it was damn close. ;P
rulez added on the 2014-08-02 01:32:58 by Photon Photon
Awesome colour scheme. Everything either looks like chocolate or crunchy honeycomb bits. I love it.

And the track has some wonderful chord progressions and great to listen to over and over again.

Thank you for producing and sharing. Top marks from me.

Spectacular! Really well designed and polished to perfection.

Well, what can I say about productions of my long time scene mate Virgill... it rocks. ;)

Nothing special as we are aware of his contributions quality since ages, but honestly in the 90s I did not know he got coding skills aswell.

This "one-man-shows" he comes up with on regular base nowadays are really awesome. The music is just insane and the visual effects going along with it are just like a perfect trip into modern computer art.

Hard to believe this one is a small sized production.

Keep that great work up, Jochen. A well-deserved first place @ Nordlicht 2014.

Thanks for the sources but, er, for those of us who haven't the slightest how to use those ... is there a chance we can get an export of your great soundtrack? :)

This is indeed a lovely production done in only 8KB. Very impressive sphere/raymarching with nice distortion filters and beautiful casting shadows, with an awesome soundtrack. I love the mood in this production, as well.

Very good rendering and sound quality (especially in the subtleties in the lead, hard to do with 4klang). Not the most imaginative visuals but good enough :). Colors aren't too attractive unfortunately kinda bad colors, and the harsh tonalities/contrast lessens the visual quality a bit.
