some heavy 3d scenes here, but they're quite beautiful. and there's really a lot of stuff in it, the intro goes on and on and on. i like it

Boring to death. Some people fell asleep during Sonnet. That tells just about everything.

Some good ideas but the result isn't. Too long and ugly textures. Sucking up the partypeople. (or i'm just jealous).

well, it's not fastpaced like most demos are at the moment, instead it's slow and beautiful. I enjoyed it very much ;)

These 3State folks are GODS. Even though some people don't like nature demo/intros.. this is just a wonderful piece of art.

Yet more wussy feminine euro-poetry. But the visuals and music make up for it. How couldn't I praise it?

beautiful and well thought-out, long but not boring at all. I adore it.

though admittedly this is a production that's best experienced on monitor; on the big screen it didn't work quite so well - the colors looked brash and the morphing borders seemed silly (amazing how much better that looks on monitor!)
still it was very disappointing to see some people jeer at this while it was shown. the audience at asm01 was a bunch of total idiots.

anyway... if I had to think of something that bothers me here, it's the texts. are they necessary? most of the time "poetry" in demos feels like the authors don't quite rely on their visuals and try to masquerade them with text overlays. which is completely unnecessary here...

flad: Vic's tune is in fact not a chiptune... it contains about 2mb of samples :)
added on the 2001-08-07 16:31:21 by sagacity sagacity
Still, this tune is a bit of a downpoint, as it just sounds too chippy. With the power of realtime synthesis, a much more fitting, atmospheric tune would have been possible...

But anyway, a really cool intro which i definitely enjoyed to watch, even if it's slow here and there.

for some reason the intro crashes on my amd 1200mhz with a geforce2mx (newest drivers and windows2000).
sorry to say that the module totally ruined it for me (sorry vic)

never the less, very lovely landscapes and such..

btw, is it a 4chnl mod? :)
sure sounded like one in headphones

oh and kids, dont watch sonnet on a tnt2pci :P

chippy ? apart from the excessive sinewave abuse here and there i dont hear anything 'chippy' about it .. but then again i never saw the whole intro :)

j_ and macaw, a final version fixing most (all?) crash-problems and the hideous soundpanning-bugs should be out soonish. Size-optimizing, you gotta love it.
added on the 2001-08-08 13:34:47 by sagacity sagacity
lovely visuals, really quite impressive that they packed so much in. maybe a bit dull in places, but when the autumn kicks in, it shows some real style.

but the music is below what it should be. maybe its not a chip, maybe it has 2mb of samples, but they apparently weren't very good samples. =) of course its hard to get a long tune in an intro, but still, something a bit higher quality was expected.

otherwise, marvelous.
rulez added on the 2001-08-10 01:01:19 by smash smash
another great improvement for the final would be a higher resolution for most of the textures...

one of the most boring ones at asm.

BTW, this is the first ever NON-Finnish PC intro to win at Assembly. Odd, huh? Maybe that's why some ppl thought Tripfish 2 should've won. :)

Oh well.. if you have a short attention span or hate the outdoors, I guess you won't like this. Also, I wish the samples were better, Vic had some great ideas in his tune and it could've been better with the right samples.

sagacity... hm? sizeoptimizing?

does that mean that we are not the only ones who think that final version should be smaller anymore? :)
added on the 2001-08-10 17:55:52 by ryg ryg
ryg: it means that I had to hack to get it in 64k :)

I don't really care about the size of final versions, as long as they work.
added on the 2001-08-10 20:12:42 by sagacity sagacity
A very nice intro, but at the same time it's quite long and with little "content" so to speak. Didn't like the music either. In the end I was pretty bored, which in my eyes, makes it an "OK" production.

BTW; was it supposed to go all flatshaded at the end?
added on the 2001-08-10 21:02:18 by fractalgp fractalgp
i like the topic of sonnet, but the intro is way to looong. the music (four channels!?) is unbelieveably bad for a song done by vic. it ruins the whole atmosphere.
added on the 2001-08-11 13:01:16 by a-move a-move
a-move: the music probably has incorrect panning, which should be fixed in the final. this is also the reason why it ends up sounding like a 4-channel mod.
added on the 2001-08-11 13:05:08 by sagacity sagacity
It could have been something if it was shorter, faster (it's creepy on my p3 450 TNT2 machine) and with a more fitting and atmospheric tune.

3state loves to experiment with styles, and I like that. But I can't really say I like this one.

I pressed escape after a minute or so, and left it at that.

It's not *that* pretty, suffers from over-the-top design tidbits (the frame, for instance is fresh, but was annoying after a while) and so deliberately long...I liked the tune (as a chiptune) though.

Sonnet was a bold move from the previous 3state stuff, but a move that left me really wondering what they smoke (crack?) during their meetings =)

something i don't understand shifter, how "a minute or so" is too long?
added on the 2001-08-15 18:33:51 by _-_-__ _-_-__
Play sonnet and you'll find out.

Seriously, I didn't use a stopwatch to see when I lost interest, but one or two scenes after the grid o' green spikes (grass, apparently) I pressed the upper left key on my keyboard.

Ah, did i mention that the progress bar was not in that minute or so?

'I' don't need to play sonnet (doesn't run on my machine anyway) but i enjoyed watching it at asm. clearly it has character, it is slow paced, surely not the typical rgb color fast paced tunnels and weird metaballs transversed by wild cameras.. but it's coherent, and i found, enjoyable, as long as you adapt your own pace to the intro's pace, and you give it a chance. (of course it's like <a href="http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=313">the fulcrum</a>, a production that i'm not going to watch every week)
3state are not 'smoking crack' ...

w00ps :) and i meant, the fulcrum
added on the 2001-08-16 15:39:14 by _-_-__ _-_-__
I know they don't smoke crack, they're quite sweet-looking at demo parties. (Sarcasm doesn't pay off here, I guess)

And Fulcrum...ah, it's a brilliant demo. The start may not be fast paced, but that is not the point: In Fulcrum you were rewarded for the slow advancement with brilliant code, graphics and overall design. Sonnet simply doesn't have the 'pull' to justify the crawl of progression. (The scenes aren't very earth-shattering, and the (suspiciously visualice-like) typeface won't help that)

And before you start: No, that's not a lack of attention span, just a matter of taste.

added on the 2001-08-17 17:44:05 by Shifter Shifter
Shifter: Just go and watch the damn intro to the end before nailing it down.

For me Sonnet is clearly the best intro released this year so far. Rise by Mindforce & Park comes near but Sonnet goes much more further with the slowly evolving atmosphere.

I agree it's also a production you don't want to see too often (I actually saw it only once in the intro compo jury)...

And hey, I even like the music even tho' I'm normally not a big fan on Vic's. :)
added on the 2001-08-19 13:04:08 by melw melw
For the sake of argument, I did just that, Melwyn. Hasn't changed a damn thing, I still think it's not all that it's cracked up to be.

It was pleasant to hear the music finish though. It's still the best thing about the intro as far as I feel. =)
added on the 2001-08-20 11:45:52 by Shifter Shifter
nice intro, but after seeing it i had a sort of "it could have been good"-feeling.
Ugly and boring. (tho the music is somewhat nice towards the end)

Well, to begin with let me say this... I don´t quite get peoples trip with this algorithmic compression started by farb-rausch... It´s boring, it doesn´t contain any impressing "effects" whatsoever...it´s just regular conceptual coding with no motive of pushing peoples perception...if you get my point...It´s not bad or lousy it´s just boring and mainstream...

Adding insult to injury: some feedback from retired sceners who were forced to watch it, and somehow none were happy.

"Looks impressive for a software intro...-oh, it's hardware?"
"Is that green grid supposed to be grass, or am I that drunk?"
"Can I go back to coding now?"
"Noise textures. Did we have to wait that long for noise textures? fr-08 had proper texures and music for the tenth of the time"
"Sonnet, Sonnet... Isn't that the intro we prematurely esc'ed last week?"

I bet those retired sceners were real impressed by the Alien Prophets demo, weren't they?

No, just pointing out that having a bunch of retired sceners watching ANYTHING that isn't made by someone they don't personally know usually ends up with "it sucks".

I mean, just try watching a demo together with Assa :)

Oh well.

Wel sagacitiy, as a matter of fact, they were pleased 50-50 with it. They loved that marching cube crap.

I don't see what that would have to do with Sonnet though.

Has some very nice stuff and scenes, and I sort of like the music, but that's about it. Except for that, I mean, try watching this thing twice in a row and you will understand.
However, i still consider this a "must see" for it's radically different style. O well... i'll still give it a thumbs up.
rulez added on the 2001-11-07 04:07:34 by Nezbie Nezbie
i especially loved the music, but the rest is particularly long and boring to me ...

so i decently cannot give it a thumbs up, it's quite disappointing from 3state ... but still ok ...

Just saw this for the first time on my brothers ridiculously powerful pc (and he only uses it to run office 2000... criminal) - oh my god. oh my good giddy gosh. this is really quite proper. it IS a shame it needs such high-end hardware - but, what a piece of art... i rate this way more than fr-08. sorry guys.

das produkt had better music, but this has the aesthetics down, and very intelligent direction, and transitions between scenes. fr08 is UGLY. i loved it anyway, but i love this more. simply breathtaking.

still, don't pay any attention to me, i think the best 64kb intro ever is Bakkslide by hellcore and omnicolor. ;¬p

Sonnet is impressive for its size. Of course it needs to pre-calculate its guts before starting... Also it lasts quite long. The work is very good though. Design is quite nice, only some colors could be better. If you absolutely hate 3d-fly-bys, stay away, and don't listen to it with headphones as I did because the stereo separation sucks! :-) Oh, and speaking of music, some vibratos/tremolos would make the music so much smoother...

Anyway, I liked it.

It's always a poor reflection when the precalculating lasts longer than the intro. But even after the wait (2 cups of coffee, a shower and a short nap) there's nothing to justify this.

The visuals are average, the poetry is twee and hackneyed, and the shrill music is very unpleasant.

Preload lasts way too long, and the beginning is rather crappy (did I wait that long just for watching THAT shit?). But then... the strange music is pretty addictive time, and the graphics fit the atmosphere.
I still do not know wether I like this prod or not...

At that time I wasn't able to see it since it required good gfx hardware, and after a lot of precalc time it quitted!
Fortunately now I can see it without problems :)
Very good intro.

When this intro was seen 3 years ago, I did not understand true goodness.
(At that time, some scene was really slow.)
However, the thing that is good intro can be understood from seeing now.
cool style.
cool story.
and cool music.

best 64k ever!
3 years on still holds its ground: wonderful concept, well excecuted.. and magic digi style soundtrack to fit.
demo makes me happy :)

the soundtrack does the magic..
and a great beginning...
but imho heavily overrated, cause they made alot better demos/intros..

its pretty nice, but the music can get a bit annoying when using a headset due to all the paning.

a very brave approach which turned out quite well if not alone for the lovely music. I remember that even back in 01 some images needed some imagination to complete but then again we didn't have today's packers and other tools. It's really a blast to se it working after all those years. The morphing frame is a nice little gem I've never really seen like this afterwards. Wish 3state would come back ;)

For it's size this one has an impressive amount of content. The season idea is well shown, especially the rainy tree and snow scenes made me go "D'AW!".

Too bad it won't properly run in Win7 - as the sound doesn't match the one in the video capture, even with compatibility (XP SP3) mode on. At the iceberg scene it's almost quiet, missing all the mids and bass,- sad beeps.

From the time when most 3D accelerated stuff looked like crap compared to software rendering .. including this. The music does not do it for me either, though it's a nice chip-ish tune, just does not seem to fit. Thus, on the verge of being a piggy, but goes to thumb down because the visuals could've been better with some planning and polishing even with the hardware restrictions.

Sceneboetry-style done correctly. It's long, but uses the length to an advantage by not rushing the content.
rulez added on the 2014-10-21 18:07:03 by noby noby
Weak-ish thumb up. I really like the song and thought the colour bar-like intro was cool. I have no problems with 3d demos or fly-bys but the poetry doesn't really do it for me. Either way, impressive to have it all in 64k and for how long it is to boot. A great effort, but if there was no poetry I wouldn't feel as hesitant about this thumbs up.
rulez added on the 2014-11-26 05:46:49 by Maraakate Maraakate
Ignoring the poetry, this intro executes the atmosphere very well, and is immersive.

damn. the title screen had me and i hoped that this will be so awesome. unfortunetely the sound is not my cup of tea so are a few scenes. but overall still a thumbs worthy 64k.
rulez added on the 2019-04-07 10:27:44 by sensenstahl sensenstahl
kinda wish it was half the length so it could guarantee better gfx and sound

a bunch of scene poetry and long 3d flyby scenes, guess the 3d was impressive in 2001 but does not really hold up
Nice one!
rulez added on the 2021-04-21 13:35:02 by Mystra Mystra
there's actually some surprising depth in the sound design, even with everything being so cheap. For example, the warmer scenes were matched with warmer synth sounds, and vice versa for colder scenes.
