Just a single changing colour filling the screen here. Music seems to play fine. GTX 1060, Win10.

Works fine for me with the same gpu and os as fizzer. Really love the visuals, the city on cubes and the rose opening especially, probably my favourite of the party. That music on the other hand is really irritating. Definite thumb up overall.

nice, but the music would be better with some filtering and less random notes

Wow mapping the city to a fractal surface is genius!

Thanks for commenting! Actually there are no fractals involved. It's mostly mirroring/reflecting and modulus. :) It is my first demo, for the next one I'll definitely research more about music. ;)
Hey man, didn't I talk to you outside on saturday, sitting in the inflatable, uh, chair? Anyway nice for a first prod, as it somewhat escapes the camera moving forwards through a 3D scene boredom with the rose and reflections.

Wrapping the domain absolutely everywhere is a really weird design choice. Same goes for the music overall. But the end result still looks good, and assuming a firstie, this is super impressive.

BTW: Looking at a temple overbearing a walled city... this is trying to be ancient Yerusalem, right?

It's not necessarily the city of Jerusalem. ;) I was thinking of more generic ancientish / middle-eastern vibes. Plus with all of those reflections it seemed to relate a bit to geometric islamic art. :) But well, yeah, it was mostly a tech exercise.
The city... just awesome!!!
The first prod... even more awesome!
The music... next time, ask Virgill :-)
