Ummm so this was 4klang, not 64klang...

You MADMAN. Those fucking windchimes???

Visuals are pretty random and not that interesting, but the music is so atmospheric it actually makes them fit.

Best sound in a 4k I've heard for a while.

Well that's what I call a proper soundtrack. I was already really impressed but then staccato strings? In a 4k?! Totally rulez. The overall atmosphere reminded me of the doll house scene in GITS: Innocence. So yeah, good work.

That 4klang music is pure awesomeness <3 And the feedback effect is cool. Very creepy and eery!

Impressive audio unfortunately massively counterbalanced by repetitive flaky visuals.

This is without any doubt, the most insane instrument design ever in a 4k! The strings, the chimes, everything is just so wonderfully recreated. It's amazing there was even room for any visuals at all ;-)

I got this sensation of having just escaped a fire by jumping into the swimmingpool and from there, I looked up on the hotel on fire from under the surface. Really a wonderful journey. Thanks a million fro this masterpiece!

awesome music and non-traditional instruments, visual did nothing special for me.

What many others are saying - sound was _really, really, REALLY_ good, but the visuals are a bit of a pain point.

cool blurry rendering

...visuals to 'cubic' for me...but hey what the hell of a sound :-)

Visually not your best one, yet still top notch. The instruments are so wicked, you really manage to create some Hollywoodish atmosphere here

Great mood and music especially in 4k. Visuals are ok.

Yes, this rules blaaaaaaaaBLAAAAAAABLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...
so any news? No. Congratulations, you did it again.

But, though there is nothing one can really criticize something on that one:
Just my personal taste - of course the soundtrack is great and fits as if it was a movie scene.. but you are very best when you create goosebumping melodies. GALVANIZE still is over the top for me, concerning that..

You are able to touch people with very few notes being replayed - and remembered, as I now have to above mentioned Galvanize-melody right in my ears again.

So - I would definitely prefer to seeing your next productions being less "artcore" and more "melodic" again. I understand the attempt to try out new things and push limits even further - but I keep saying you are best at the melodic / harmonic / anthem stuff. ;)

It deserves its thumb, but I'll echo the people who said some of your prior work stood out more. I think the soundtrack does outpace the visuals here. It fits, but it seems to be a bit more coherent and the visuals are, well, like I'm trapped inside a crystal ball or something. Everything is fuzzy and indistinct.

Like Dascon, I also liked Galvanize a lot but this seems to have a bit more in common with Prism Break in terms of the visuals. (Seeming like you're inside of glass or water.)

Good athm. The soundtrack is much more intense, than the gfx.

The music is insanely good, but I also really liked the gfx. Dieses

While the visuals aren't exactly the best thing since sliced bread ofc, this honestly my favorite intro you have done, Virgill. The visual content is a bit plane, but the quality overall is there which is easily enough for me. Most importantly though, it doesn't feel like a compromise from any perspective. I feel this is so far your strongest aesthetical thesis.

I quite like these visuals! Like some supervillain trapped in supermans ice castle on krypton. Sound is from 3017!

the audio and visuals was great! Especially impressed by the high quality soundscape. I did however get a feel for that the visuals and soundscape should somehow be connected without "getting it". Still a kickass production!

Amazing ... am I the only one who felt this direction is like Visualice's? It reminded me a little of 828

what a sound - i'm pretty impressed.
i even like the visuals, esp. the direction in the second half is really really nice.
would've also been a perfect soundtrack for this

Spectacular audio. Visual wonderful. Masterpiece

Being able to fit music perfectly to visuals by doing both makes Virgill drop one splendid prod after another onto us...we gotta love it! :D
The visuals are ace once again, but the soundtrack makes it perfect...the sound is super-rich and fitting at all times, so basically what neoneye said: Masterpiece!
The Soundtrack alone is a masterpiece considering it was made with a minimal SoftSynth named 4klang, which misses many features musicians tend to use normally.

Nice 4k, but too slow for my taste saw it at Demoscensklubben
rulez added on the 2017-08-12 11:06:45 by Frequent Frequent
Music beyond belief. I assume the visuals just didn't have as much space (there's only 4k, after all!); it's a nice blurry effect, but sort of goes nowhere.
