i dont know about you guys, but i didnt hear a thing. and my nvidia soundstorm is in perfect working order. in fact, i was (am) listening to other stuff both before and afterwards.

aside from that, good going. until i hear, piggy.
lack of deisgn does not equate a designfest.

Love the colours and design. Looks really different. However, the music is so focking cliched, tuneless and tinny it ruined the experience for me.

Balances out as a piggy.
Usual Traction style, much nicer than Fiat Homo and some other recent Traction demos, I enjoyed watching it, gotta love some of the line effects!!!
rulez added on the 2005-10-11 09:28:07 by Optimus Optimus
call me too harsh, but..
i really dont like the colours, the "music", or the camerawork. the design and fx are also totally old hat imo. changing the colours does not mean you're evolving your style.
that leaves some on the ball sync, and one scene i really liked involving some kindof extruded spliney things as the positive aspects here.

I don't like advanced chemistry, but I really like this looking good 64K, only the tune is a little in the red.

And yes, Paul Bourke's equation butterflies are borrowed maths and no ripoff!
Why to reinvent the wheel?
Using Pi isn't a ripoff too. ;)

not as ordered and homogenous as fiat homo, but still a highly original and unusual piece.

one thing annoyded me big time though. i'm all for 96-ish junglistic sound, and i loved the breaks (softsynth? but how..?) and the bassline, BUT the leadsynth was just extremely annoying and out of place at times.
rulez added on the 2005-10-18 14:45:05 by dipswitch dipswitch
the drums are samples in 8 bit.. we don't have a softsynth, unfortunately :/
added on the 2005-10-18 22:20:58 by griip griip
kudos for releasing a 64k without softsynth then!

much nicer to work for us musicians. =)
added on the 2005-10-19 03:27:30 by dipswitch dipswitch
Great! I hear however that there is no relation between the effects and the experience of SSRI though.
rulez added on the 2005-10-19 16:46:20 by El Topo El Topo
There is no SSRI experience. SSRI just allows you to feel normal or decently human again. It "lights you up", as one of my friends put it.

Hey, another Linux port! Cool.

Although the music left me cold, the visuals were very pretty to watch. Maybe Preacher does have a line fetish, but so what -- this looked great.

And it ran as smooth as an oiled up 19 year-old sex goddess. Or something like that...

Well still raining outside here, the 58kb antidepressants worked like a charm to keep the mood up :)

Sure the design feels dated, as the colors - but after reading the NFO how the fuck would one not upvote this?
rulez added on the 2013-05-25 17:54:24 by mog mog
I guess the main thing here is the sync and some of the conceptual stuff. It felt strange rewatching this, because I remember some things about making it, and how hard some things in life seemed back then.

Trivia: after having problems with syncing Fiat Homo, I told Grip the musician to get me precise pattern/order things when stuff happens. And he did! That's why the sync is so precise, it must have taken him ages to write all that data for me. Also, I still like the colors in association with the background.

added on the 2014-05-18 22:19:20 by Preacher Preacher
It is good to see at least an attempt of a central concept running through the demo, however banal (a repeating symbol) it might be. The design was rather subtle, which might have been why it didn't arouse any greater feelings. That "beamer" effect that drew dark shapes in air was great. The music would've been great without those cheap chipstyle square waves.
