Thumbs up for trying something different and for pushing noise demos to the limit (I hope). I didnt like it -at all-. Traction are known for their unique style, breaking loose of that to something *better* will be hard. Respect for pushing though preacher.

yes. i second auld (not for the noise limit).

nice to see big effort to change your style but... try to find other way ;) almost dead while watching this

Thumb up for different style in traction.
The music is not my taste.
But, good scene change and I liked some fx.
Totaly good demo.

Hypnotizing. Not my favourite style but i will watch it again quite some many times so i guess it's a thumb up. Sound should be darker and more sinister one, this sounds too funny. Some nice effects and good fade in at beginning.

typical traction demo, awesome execution. i like the word joke of the last photo.

nosfe, in the visual sense, I felt a demo with more noise would be overwhelmed by it. But its purely personal taste.

different. great soundtrack

it wasn't a noise demo if you ask me. the part with the floating rects is great.

I've never understood people watching this kind of demos. Please, no more.

Mixed feelings. While it's a kind of demo I usually don't like, there was some feeling in it. Though it gets tiring after a while. Piggie..

whoha... nothing for a epileptic ... but in a strange way, I have to admit, I like it.. a lot.

Traction goes to the artsy epileptic noise world and kicks straight to my eyes. Thank you.

nice to see traction trying another way... some moments were fine. as a whole, it didn't work for me.

Memory dump. On C64 such was called a sucky loader/decompressor not turning off the screen while calculating. Now it's art?

add more filters.. flashy graphics with tv-noise on top of it isn't interesting. soundtrack was cool tho.

not my kind of demo and not my kind of music. but i like some of the (less noisy) routines so piggy it is.

Sometimes, it's liberating to do something out of the ordinary.
And..sometimes it's liberating to hit ESC.

too much traction, not enough grey park. :) i would've liked more effects based on the photos.
added on the 2007-10-25 00:19:55 by phoenix phoenix
somehow the visuals are too ordered. more chaos/destruction/randomness would be in order.

Loved everything besides the flashing pictures, and silly looking "tv noise".

Wanted to do something different but couldn't really break out of my form of glowing line stuff which I regret. I still like the end result: the pictures were taken in Tapiola between 2003 and 2004. I got a bunch of Grey Park tracks from Nosfe and chose this one. Not among my best works for sure, but it was fun to make.

trippy. visuals are not my cup of the but the combination with the music works very well. enough for thumbsing up :D
rulez added on the 2015-11-19 17:26:51 by sensenstahl sensenstahl
Should have been a little shorter as there's not enough variation in the visuals but other than that this is nice, music and visuals fit together pretty well indeed. Enjoyed it.
rulez added on the 2015-11-19 17:42:18 by StingRay StingRay
I liked how the sobel filter blended the generated and photographed imagery together. The noise filter was indeed unnecessary, and so was the spikeball too. The music fit very well and I enjoyed it.
