This is great!!!

Damn it JCO, is there a music style that you can NOT do well? Im always impressed by your music productions.

Im half german, so I blame my likings for this demo on that :)

well it took me a couple of tries to get this thing running. Presumably someone in farbrausch with OCD thought it would be a good idea to swap OK / CANCEL (demo/die) so that I pressed 'die' all the time :-). (or is it the other way round, I'm now confused).

Anyway, from what I saw I could say that this is probably the best demo in the compo, with some very clever humour and references. Unfortunately it is also slow as hell, but then again I'm running it on 4 year old machine.

Neat idea. I loved the hardcore elements and drive of some parts of this demo, but I don't think it matched too good with the attempted funny parts. It resulted in some mix of slow and fast pace dragging on for too long my noise and tempo loving mind didn't enjoy too much.

I don't want to offence anyone,but I had some words to say.
Hey,thanks the offer.haha.
But I DON'T like the orang picture,and I believe you don't understand what is the real chinese culture&music.
The west newspapers & television & broadcast always mislead your people what the real china is.
at the meantime, I know the farbrausch is a great group made many famous demos,but I believe we respect others not only for their talent,but also for their humanity.

added on the 2008-01-05 19:16:00 by Speed Speed
actually, this was meant more as a satire than anything else, but to paraphrase a german saying, "everyone puts on the shoes that fit them", so feel free to be pissed if it suits you :)

the (german) text is 100% original from a spam mail that jco received about a month ago (except for the repetitions). not a word was changed, and neither were any of the urls (as spoken). the website is gone for good already, so the whole thing probably was a short-lived scam operation. in any case, the completely fucked up german translation with its unintentional humor was reason enough for jco to make a track out of it, and for me to suggest turning it into a demo :). besides, we both found it hilarious how the job offer crap in the first half slowly turns into the cheesy propaganda-ish phrases full of military metaphors in the second half.

images and 3d scenes were done by jco, who also synced the 3d scenes. chaos did some simple background effects (the kaleidoscopic stuff). i wrote and synced the "english" subtitles and did the syncing for the images.

the subtitles were inspired by but not copied from the english texts on the website when it was still online. the grammar wasn't as bad as it is in the subtitles, but it was bad enough. if anyone takes the descriptions of the music in the subtitles seriously, he must be deaf, dumb or both :)

to ryg:
Discuss politics is useless between man in the street,especially between sceners. I am not a politician, and I also have no interesting to touch it.
I live in China as a native.I never traveled abroad, but I watched many movies,newspapers,and visited many websites.I saw some negative reports about china, I really don't like that. China is not a perfect country,it's true,but I was born here,I grow up here.Maybe I was a little sensitive to that topics.
and again,I come here not only want to win the prize,but also want make some friends,with no intention to set fire.

rulez added on the 2008-01-06 16:20:19 by novel novel

basically what ryg said. i highly respect the chinese culture - only intention was to make fun of ridiculous spam letters, and the associations to stupid clichés just came naturally ;) the techno-track for itself is in some way so damn "German" that it can be understood as a parody on this German Techno/Schranz genre as well. Since Germany has a ridiculous militaristic background too, I think it's kinda fitting.
Imho it's important not to confuse superficial political clichés with the actual people who live in a (superimposed, forced) political system.

So, no offense meant :)

I also want to add that besides the overlays, the whole demo has been created at the partyplace, so it might lack some finetuning, and that I took the photos from a cheap commercial "huge bunch of photos" collection.

I like the concept, it's quite funny when you're thinking about the whole idea to "sell a spoof-idea".

Habe gemagt dieses Demo. Machen schöne Bilder. Aber wieso China? Die Menschenquellen hier nicht zu unterschätzen ist.

Oh I didn't thumb this already? It's just awesome and few days ago I found some paper in my letterbox that somehow reminded me of this demo :D

FR goes VOZ! The percussion is horrible, but the rest is reminds my of the fun I had translating Amiga documentation with a tool called Eurotranslator:
"open popup window with the hotkey" => "um zu knallen aus Fenster mit heiße Taste"
