Made in three hours day before the party as an experiment in minimalist design with something else than demoscene techno for the soundtrack.

Great music choice, but the demo going with it is most uninteresting

Experiment was a failure. Sorry, but you can't call an application that draws ellipses a demo ..

kbi: I disagree. What is a demo? Something that corresponds to demoscene traditions? Something running on specific hardware? Something drawing textured polygons? The term "demo" is short for demonstration, thus, I'd consider and sort of realtime production that uses a computer controlled display and additional (optional) sound hardware etc. a demo.

Great soundtrack, but the rest is awful and felt so dragged out on the stream.

Maybe you should add more background info about the music you have been abusing:

circle, circle, line... boring. :(

I see the idea but it was too minimalistic designwise for me.

That really didn't work out at all. Even for a "2d/noFill()/ellipse()"-processing thinggy.

I agree with visy, but I can't bring myself to like this, it's boring and visually unplueasing, the music is great, only if it was made specifically for the demo...

visy: If you stick to the definition, then of course you are right. But it should also be enjoyable. It's like with the movies - I could call a moving rectangle with a sine wave humming from speakers a movie, because it sticks to the definition of what a film is. The problem is, theory is not everything. "gloomy sunday" for instance completely lacked any sort of gfx and for me was simply boring.

Again, this is subjective.

kbi: Of course. I in no way disagree with you on the factor if its "boringness" - I also agree that I should have spent a LOT more time on it, but I think compofiller is still better than nothing.

spend a few more hours next time, or at least come up with a good idea first

Very creative! The first demo in BP translation which impressed me. Singing ellipse, circle-tunnel trumpets - all is so conceptual. Even colors (?) tuned right.
The demo can inspire someone to make a step from this prototype to a full-size prod. Respect, guys.

You chose a wonderful song for this one, but I have to admit that throughout the demo I just couldn't grasp what the motivation behind this thing could be.

Reminded me of the works of Oskar Fischinger, more than anything.

This prod rulez!

Typical processing crap.

you can abuse any tech to make "crap", you know.

I can respect doing something experimental/different, but this lacked any content or anything at all to keep it interesting other than the tune, which is ripped. Thumb down because of that...

Then again, do more like this. But spend a bit of time on it next time ;)

Erm, sorry. But that was maybe the most boring entry I've witnessed. Nice music, but that's it. Circle, more circles. And some circles. No, thanks

i can see the ideas behind it, but the result is a tad too empty for my taste

Minimilist, and a bit lengthy - but rather nice

simple and art - not really fascinating.

Nice tune and choice of color(s), but it got really boring after a while.

i wish that zeppelinoid line-stuff would have made jihad like the "Hindenburg" did back in time the music was a HIT !

For me, too minimal for such long scenes. The music, meh.

perhaps goes on for too long or is too slow... but a thumb up for a Mac release. I enjoyed it.
