I wish Farbrausch would release more productions like this, afterall, one can never thumb down too many demos -- just ask Spengler!

the competition would have been tedious enough even without this, anyways: it's terribly boring/ugly and it was annoying the crap out of me during the compo because of it's length.

Oh yeah... farb-rausch sucks. :)

Maybe I should quit my work as graphic artist: I like this production, even if it was not intended to be liked. Maybe the most interessting color-scheme since Energia.

Iit is a shame they burned the music for this production. This track deserved a real demo.

Great music, nice visual, bad sgenepoetry.

And lasts way too long to keep me concentrated through the whole demo.
rulez added on the 2004-08-30 17:29:37 by teel teel
the effect was kind of nice, it had an almost satori look to it. But the colours, and the sheer magnitude of the ugliness earns it one of these:

1. 100% original and outstanding concept. It probably required months of hard work and intense brainstorming to manage such a perfect demo!
2. Amazing graphics! Almost made me cry.
3. Soundtrack of the year! Can help listening to it.
4. Smartest code ever! Probably the most tricky and advanced code since demoscene died (in 1993 of course). Do you guys have secret documentation about pc hardware to manage such things?

Best Farbrausch demo so far, no doubt.

I agree to all those saying that the track kicks ass ... as well as the code does !!! And of course the idea behind ...

a parody of a parody of an art demo. :) the scenepoetry is cliche to the highest degree - shaky text and all - which i'm sure was intended. aside from the zapping noises, the music is pretty cool, and the only thing keeping me from pressing esc right away.

ts: really, you liked the 5 byte intro better.. ;)

"Great Style" I thought first. But it's only one single effect streched over 4 minutes...the whole thing doesn't lead nowhere. The text was hardly readable and left no impact.
Some people say it's no serious production. What does that mean??

on a side note, this is one of my favourites from the productions i've been involved with.

there's certainly nothing technical to be proud of in there, but what i like about it is that this came out extremely close to what i wanted to do, though in a completely different way than originally planned :)

insanely as it might seem concerning the negative comments, this is one of my favourite 2004 releases. i like to watch it from time to time, when in the right mood. interesting background effects.

but what's best about it is the music. i've heard it multiple times over a larger period of time, and for me this belongs to best demo soundtracks produced.
rulez added on the 2005-03-25 00:43:53 by flash^peon flash^peon
oh and i disagree, this is not some pretentious art-for-art, actually the effects - mainly background - look cool, emphasized with the refreshing color scheme. the infofile provided me a good laugh :)

also nice colours and style.
I remember watching this demo shortly after its release, and despite the questionable "design", it didn't feel like a minus prod at any point. The visuals contributed to the distraught and nihilistic atmosphere set up by the lyrics and the awesome(-ly fitting) soundtrack. In fact I loved the track so much it stayed in the favorites playlist on my portable player for over a decade!
