not aweful. i liked it... well most of it, the end of the demo seems unfinished and hacked together.. make the muscian shorten the track next time around

Typical "love it or hate it" demo.
Worked fine for me.

a couple of the overlays and wireframe models were simply delicious, but it they were thin on the ground.

I was really hoping for something good seeing the groupnames, but I fell asleep during this one at the party. Sorry i'm fed up with repetitive techno crap.

deserves a higher rank! nice effects, but a bit long IMO.

not my favourite techno track, and personally i would have liked a few more scenes to add interest, but otherwise its looking good. I'm hoping for a remix =D

Sorry, but this is tooooo boring. Each part shown to long times and the noise (it's not music) is hurts after a minute. With a better music and shorter parts it can be a good demo, but in this form it sucks ! :(

As the comments show, it's a "love it or hate it" case. Personally I dislike this kind of "pum pum" music with simple and repetitive scenes, but the prod shows some work and style behind this... So no thumb this time.
added on the 2004-04-16 15:15:10 by utopian utopian
I choose hate :P
Maybe was just my imagination, but at BP democompo it looked like it was cut before ending so I don't know if it evolves to some interesting at the end.
Sorry, but I feel I couldn't survive watching this prod again to check this.
sucks added on the 2004-04-16 15:54:22 by drpain drpain
You either love or hate techno :)

About the BP democompo, they stopped it before ending, yes. Actually it was the only entry that managed to do that iirc. Not that I'm happy about it, but the pc democompo was so extremely boring that this probably didn't fit so well. Anyhow, I think it should've been shown completely.

Kudos to Trace btw, I like this even more every time I see it :)
added on the 2004-04-16 16:45:30 by ithaqua ithaqua
there are millions of scene trackers who do better music then this.
try to meet some musicians instead of complaining to others about your lazyness trace!
added on the 2004-04-16 18:09:16 by psenough psenough
a bit too long, but don't seems unfinished to me, nice idea

trace, the sincro remains a bit chaotic and strange, AUTOCAD power! rlz!

Ithaqua, you seem to have a bug with the bass DLL cause all the time i'm hearing noise
rulez added on the 2004-04-16 18:19:11 by JaK JaK
absolutely typical for the PC compo. They think changing the camera / boring objects every beat on VERY crappy music makes this design?
boring. boring. boring.

In comparison to r08028: well, I like more this colour schema, but the visuals of the r08028 weren't so "predictable" as this one. In the other hand, the gfx engine runs better than r08028's. But I prefer the selected music for the r08028. So, I will wait for the next one, hoping you improve the visuals, continue with this nice color selection and show everywhere your new musician ;)
It was nice at all (although I wasn't at the party :))
Keep on designing motion graphics!! XDDD
Exactly. MORE please ! Kthx.

Too bad these groups aim to make a dunk dunk repetetive demo....but i guess they did it because it can be done fast....so they had something to deliver at bp04.

They can do alot better then this....not my type of demo.

It felt superfluous in the compo. Might have been a good out-of-party release.
added on the 2004-04-17 01:25:53 by _-_-__ _-_-__
The music is ok talking about techno, but i completely dislike the visuals. The screenshot represents almost all the graphic information you will receive along the demo. Try more variations the next time! I am sure you can do it very much better.

A piggie for the perfect by-hand sync by trace!

maybe a little too repetitive, but the visuals are stylish, and the sync to music is also made well.
thought I had commented already... this is friggin' nice. It looks definitely boring on the first sight, but you start discovering more and more nice synch points every time you run it... I've ended up loving it. Excellent work, trace

Really cool design and good taste, but I think the graphics are soooo repetitive. In spite of being techno, and techno is repetitive, I would love more gfx in these kind of prods. Anyway, cool synch too, I worked with sgz's editor and synching and copying fx is a bit annoying :) btw you could've asked some tracker to make a tune :P
rulez added on the 2004-05-15 22:48:16 by yero yero
yero: i didn't know trackers crazy enough to do something like that.. anyway, if the music is done why we have to do it again? :P

btw, WMV version:

hmm.. It's rather boring with that one object, one effect and extremly repetative music.. I'm more for "no" than "yes", but it's still some work done.

Looks neat, but I had trouble watching the whole thing through. (Pretty much one synched effect the entire time)

i have to realize:
what you see is what you hear.
probably one of the best visual interpretations of a soundtrack in a demo ever.

good synchro, some red meshes + nice circular 2d visuals and... nothing else. entirely is so boring that i was forced to press esc.

ps & uncle-x: the musicians are quite happy with this production, so I guess this production doesn't have ripped music ;)

btw, marco carola also was quite happy with r08028.

i hope in the future you'll still start asking for permission _before_ releasing the demo and not after ;)
added on the 2005-10-30 20:11:21 by psenough psenough
well, i'm not getting a lot of money with that, and also it is like a music video for the artist. I also do music and if someone does a demo with any of my music i'll have no problems, even if they don't ask me first.

Also, I had the problem that asking for the permission of some musicians to use some track they just don't get back to me and the idea of the demo just die or well, it goes to the 'unfinished demos' folder.

However, as I said i'm trying to get permissions from now on :)

I have mixed feelings about this
- nice sync
- techno
- but becomes boring quick
Better than most demos from the time, and in fact still looks credible today. Actually saying just would be a bit of an understatement so I'll stress that this kicks buttt.
rulez added on the 2017-07-06 22:37:50 by noby noby
I like the overlays and design idea, but the backdrop is one notch too repetitive for direct stare duration of 6 minutes. I bet it would rock as a dancefloor video though.
