Very very clean and nice demo. Good clean design, very interesting music, perfect transitions. Synestetics are "N.k.o.t.s." (New kids on the scene), but they are kicking very hard.

Technicall: there are very much slowdowns (to 2 - 5 fps) in the transition between scenes ony my A2600XP +Radeon 9100

cheezy cheeze and the cheeze cheezers are back in town.
the cloud scene was pretty much what sold it - but then again, it was worth it.
rulez added on the 2005-07-31 11:51:21 by Gargaj Gargaj
the clouds are amazing, but so is the overall feel..great choice of colors and good music that somehow gave me the feeling of being held back from what it could have been. beautiful

nice clouds-scene.. if the overall demo had a certain coherent colorscheme to it, it couldve rocked more badly than now!

Some stuff imported from your previous demo, the clouds scene was good, but everything is way too slow (especially when you're mixing two scenes).

Maybe you should quit the demos numbering stuff, it looks too much like farbrausch wanabee.

Yeah people who put fr-blah in front of their things suck.

The clouds kick total and complete ass.
It won for me. The ASD demo is also great, no doubt, but i was able to get the mood of this more. Great stuff.

Wow.. Very impressive. Runs a tad slow, but the flow, visuals and music are great. Maybe some of the colors are a little too extreme, but the cloud scene is stunning. Perhaps some optimization in a final to make it more smoothly? A well deserved thumb up!

I love Synesthetics. They're so soft and cuddly! Nice atmosphere from start to finish, and unlike many other demogroups, these guys use the frame quite well -- they're not obsessed with constantly rotating around dead center.

Nicest skies ever!
rulez added on the 2005-08-01 18:09:30 by px px
nice sky effect, however becomes boring after the 3rd or 4th time. I find the rest of the demo messy with weak colours and a low frame rate. Music is quite nice, however would have sounded much better without that horrible bassdrum.

Way cool ... sometimes a bit unconnected scenes, but the 'fly through the clouds' is purely a Great idea ( and well done, moreover )

you know a soundtrack is great when you can listen to it for a month and not get tired of it.

some of the scenes are way too green, some of them are too empty, and i don't like realism at all, but all in all i still get happy.

oh and the water rocks.

btw where is sts 01 and 02? ;)

Quite a crowdpleaser demo, but a nice one at that. I didn't like the red cubes though, they didn't seem to fit in. I also really wish you'd have included the vocals with the tune. Still, a pretty enjoyable one.

....yes it is a good demo but Aeon Flux was way better, after a few watching this demo I must say that I dont like that Clouds fly-by scene, technically it is good, but this cloud scene do no fit to design of other scenes presented in demo.

Still worth watching.......
Solid demo. Music is good, nice DOF effect in some parts, and then ofcourse the cloud parts which is what I think pushed it to such a high place in the compo.

- gay music!! sounds like a one fingered pompous monkey playing the piano.Sounds like Tarzans first go at a love techno tune for Jane.
- The colour of the landscape/background sky/water looks a bit like a "my first program using SGI Performer OpenGL API" tutorial app. I don't like really black->strong blue-> white gradients either. Looks like a "my first amiga 64k intro" which will get thumbs up because it is on amiga. Do the terrain in terragen next time and go for gold.

+ The other parts of the music which doesn't involve the piano.
+ Clouds are really neat.
+ Nice sun reflection in the water, maybe a few more types of sprites would be nice though to remove the "looks like my first water/sun reflections which have equal shapes everywhere" effect.
+ ACE depth of field. Really raunchy of you to overdo it to show it properly.
+ Cool liquidy snakes and general flowinfg ribbon effects.

equals thumb

excellent ideas, rotten music and what's up with combining fluffy clouds with generated (=ugly) landscapes?!
Best scene music 2005 so far. Comes very close to the music video metaphore.

Lots of shiny plastic and cubes. While a lot of effort went into this and technically parts of it may be excellent it still ends up a weak thumbs down in my book. Still easily worth watching if you can't get enough of demos.

stakka: what's your real point? are you trying to decrease the average of this demo? how can you say the music of this demo is awful?

for me, the soundtrack to this demo is one of the greatest if not the best that my ears had the pleasure to listen to - genial motive and experienced edits to combine this primary motive with the secondary to produce 5 min tune that does not bore at all. the visuals tries to keep the pace, but though ther're nice, they doesn't reach so high the music does.

instant zen is a notable demoscene experience.

I feel very lucky that i have watched it when it was first released on the big screen. I thought it was going to beat iconoclast but didn't express my thoughts to Navis just for the good luck of it. The music is exceptional as always :)

Thank you guys, it is a really pleasant experience.

it's a good demo. some elements could have been brought out better like using different or softer colors or shading methods. I suppose you didnt have time to polish it. music is a little too repetive and soft. thumbs up anyway.

The first three seconds alone captivates me, again and again. Soothing tune, and visuals that just caress it.

If i'd ever be on a lonely island with a puter, I'd chose this demo to play along for ages.

Tune, sync, feel <3

Somehow I've learned to appreciate this, a lot actually. There's a certain professional aura here, only marred by the usual realtime artifacts like aliasing, bilinear artifacts, low resolution textures, etc. Other than that this definitely could've been a music video for some cheesy downtempo-trance track of the era like... like exactly the one in this demo :). The music is stylistically absolutely not my taste, but I love its serene melodies and how well the visuals are married together to it. Kaupallista potentiaalia, as they used to say.
