Good looking and entertaining, sweet soundtrack. Looped the same visuals too much towards the end and the text overlays were cheesy, still rules though.

A worthy winner of this year's compo. I really enjoyed the drive this gem generated both visually as well as audio wise. Very polished compositions and great choreography!

Excellent demo, something where the added megabytes are justified. The music style is hideous, but it can easily be replaced by just playing something else.

Straight up professional - that's the best way I can describe this. Everything about it (rendering quality, music, art direction) somehow conveys that the people who did it are really, really good at what they do, and the end product shows just that. Top notch!

Audio Visual Overload
rulez added on the 2015-04-06 22:24:52 by Harekiet Harekiet
@dex46... : You have rather odd standards. If your complaining that this demo lacks depth, you're not seeing the deeper meaning. There is none, or if there was one besides partying and in general enjoying life, I would say this demo might teach a thing or two about the degrading and repetitive effects of the partyculture.
Either way, saying that this sucks because of some arbitrary art-standards is missing the point. What you call 'Artistically' or 'art', is very subjective. I guess if they wanted to use opera they would have. Would it be ok in that scenario? Where do you draw the line? What criteria do you use?

For me, well I'm thumbing this up because of the lasers. Can't thumb down a prod that has lasers.

@smash: sorry. I was too drunk at the party. I watched it a couple of times and really started to like it a lot. Lots of subtle details and polishing. Considering the gazillian cuts, it blows my mind that you can press space at any frame (accept the breaking disco-ball) and have the perfect flyer for a rave party.

Sorry, "dependencies" was for another demo.

Agree about the single theme, but it's driven and mixed up with other scenes for variety, and it's energetic with a suitable track.

Agree about the disco ball, although it would probably work with more filters. Everything works with more filters ;)

It's made in the compowinner style, and as such I think it's pretty much perfect :)

Nice prod, even though a bit disconnected. Lights everywhere, lasers, state-of-the-art dancing people and things breaking up… I don’t know, I just don’t like it. It sounds a bit “too much”. Effects for effects, even when they’re marvelous, don’t make sense and don’t touch me.

However, big thumb up for the technical aspect, and ultra big thumb up to h0ffman for such a nice track!

This is simply so f*ckin massive demo! State Of The Art 2015 or 9 Fingers 2015, pick your own favourite! =D Although we've seen dancing models already in their year 2012 released demo Spacecut, this new one is much better done. The sheer amount of work behind this must be huge! Direction, visuals, music, editing, etc... Everything is so well balanced and the audiovisuall attack from your screen, when the show starts, is just awesome!

A well deserved winner! :)

of course this production is top notch, but the interplay between visuals and music doesn't fully convince me. the beat is a bit too slow for the dynamic visuals and what is shown is not varied enough for the musical details. the cocoon demo enthuses me more...

This had strong vibes of three of my favourite demos: xmix, electric cool aid and 9 fingers. Everything works together so well; the technology is quite understated, so that you go "huh what was that, I need to see it again". Many tricks, wonderful, wonderful demo.

Any issues? hm, none. Timing is also perfect. Did it wake you up? I'm sure it did (after the brilliant but much slower and dark cocoon demo).

Perfect ending for a compo block full of psychedelic demos. :-D

Watched it a couple of times again at home, and I love it! It's cut so fast that I fail to recognize, let alone understand any details, which I normally don't like - but here it just works, and I guess it's not important why or how, the overall package is just fantastic! The energetic soundtrack fits perfectly as well.

Also something I can show to non-sceners, yay!

What Spaceball's 9 Fingers was for the early 1990s this might become for the 2010s.
The tagging style is magnificent, the tune completely nails the contemporary style of "mainstream rave" (is that a proper term ?), the silhouette dancing builds the bridge to the heydays of musical anarchy. Most interesting though are the text bits addressing social issues like the "fast forward procrastination" via facebook, instagram etc. "look at me, rate me, like me", which shows the difference to the days it harkens back to.
Best thing among that was the mentioning of High Fructose Corn Sirup among the drug listing ... totally spot on :)

In essence, although this is overtly a party banger that teases the pleasure buttons and sets the roof on fire, it still provides food for thought to those who are willing to let it sink a level deeper.

Excellent work

Soundtrack link now available including download from Soundcloud. After spending most of last year writing an entire album of chill out I found blasting filthy disgusting noises out of the studio pretty enjoyable. Hats off to Destop, Smash and Ellie for coming up with an absolute stomper of a demo! Was great working with you guys, let's do it again sometime.

Something different, very polished, technically outstanding (but, yeah, what would you expect?). On the other side, I personally found it a dab repetive.

Doesn't change the fact that I totally agree this is one of the very few and far between prods that can be shown to folks outside the scene, which is also worth highlighting.

Keep em coming!

Guys, could we take a moment to discuss the similarities between this demo and "State of the Art" / "9 Fingers"? I don't believe that has yet been brought up in the comments.

I've had troubles to run the demo on 2 systems out of 3 I tried (crashes after clicking away the settings screen), both solved by deselecting audio autodetect once after which the demo runs fine with any setting, including autodetect.

Seems like I was right last time when I considered drug references in demos to be the new votebait mechanism, just like boobies/Vallejo-ripoffs used to be in old times. Apart from that, thumbup.
rulez added on the 2015-04-10 19:13:53 by Hoild Hoild
Compared to SOTA/9 Fingers this one at least features real code. :) However, I still prefer to boot the aforementioned demos on my good ol' A500 instead of watching this one. Music doesn't work for me (quite annoys me actually) and I'm not too fond of of the visuals either.

Not bad at all but I'm not as excited about it as most people seem to be.

I still find the dancing blobs kind of disgusting -- but they're lovely executed like everything else. Especially the tunnels with reflections, oh man.

HOLY. FUCK.

How you succeed in staying ahead of everyone else is amazing. Best demo I have seen in years! When you (smash+destop) brings hoffman into the game, nothing should be able to stop you. All three of you have, in my opinion, the last couple of years been put on a pedestal, but obviously, that pedestal wasn't high enough! Please kill the scene would you?

Something's not right with this one for me. I've seen it for the first time during prizegiving, being sober(ish) and didn't catch the hype. It's probably well tech advanced, judging by the faces of coders around, and about I surely couldn't care less. It's wow nice and flashy, but still something's wrong.

Shitty typography, played to death elsewhere?
Flow breaks by some strange element like breaking ball?
Too much 9 fingers vs. Edge of Tomorrow?
2 minutes too long for that amount of f/x?

Still couldn't decide. I've tried to watch this at home but gave up after ~90 seconds. Just not my cup of tea.

Congratulations, because it was a clear compo winner, but I'll stick to Media Error and Numb Res for best FLT and Killer/Cloder for CNCD demo ever.

Blubby bodies and cool laserlines. Also gives me the empty feeling from a disco after too much lights and base, where the eat,sleep,raves, wtf questions comes up in my mind.

Some parts could have been a bit less flashy perhaps.....

Visually it's pretty much picture perfect, but I'm really really disappointed in how cliched and "dumb" the music is. h0ffman can do better than this, and it's really not that hard to make a banging club tune sound both interesting and disturbing - makes me wonder if he had an off day or he got walled in by the brief.

Well done. I quite liked the music, actually. Also I enjoyed that there seems to be an actual physical space which the lasers (etc) occupy, nicely done that.

The only thing I could've done without are the discoball and those 2d texts but in the grand scheme of things that doesn't seem like a particularly large complaint :)

Won't thumb it down, a bunch of work obviously went in to this, but echoing Gargaj the music isn't anything special. The graphics are pretty good, but at the same time kinda "Look at meeee! Bright flashy colors!". But you're not going to be able to make something that accounts for everyone's tastes.

This was kind of anticlimactic at the demoparty. I honestly remember the 64k demos more than the those from the full demo category.
this is so 2011. with a good concept but a bit poorly executed, well you guys can do much better for certain so, piggy.

The tech is not so in-your-face as in other Fairlight demos but it is there and of course this is massively entertaining (if a little bit creepy).
