This just took everything we had in the scene and within about 6 minutes took it to a level that's not even in the same school of thought that we knew so far. The scene might not recognize it for years, or ever - hell I wouldn't be too surprised if you wouldn't make top 3 - but you did.

You emotionally broke hundreds of people using a bunch of lines and about 4 chords on a piano - if this was a real party, you could've heard a pin drop it would've been so silent.

I'm trying to find comfort in knowing that nothing I'll ever make will be as good as this.

Thank you so so much.

This demo excels in everything: visuals, atmosphere, music, direction, you name it. It should've been the compo finisher, and in my heart it is.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! I will rewatch it many times and show it to everyone I know. This hits on so many levels, I can't even properly describe how completely right it is.

(God, how I wish accumulating CDCs wasn't this hard...)

What everyone else said.
This not only was the best prod of the entire event, I also could instantly connect, and I was deeply moved, in spite of all the loud and colorful stuff before this was shown, and afterwards. Deep, emotional and moving, and I can relate to the subject, while wishing I couldn't.

Thank you.

I will say good things and bad things :-)

On the good side: This is obviously beautiful. The rendering is crisp, the lines themselves are beautiful, it has a look that is among the most distinctive among all of this year's Revision entries. The music fits the mood perfectly. It's easily among the top-3 PC demos this year, and a likely Meteoriks laureate.

But: It feels like it's going nowhere. I found it hard to know whether it's starting or ending or building up to something, and then it's gone. And some of the effects desperately need easing. All the morph effects seem to be just a linear move from A to B, with constant-time trails, while it is rotating around the y axis at exactly the same speed throughout the scene. That takes away some of the “organic” feel for me.

Obvious thumb, of course!

just breathtaking
rulez added on the 2021-04-05 10:23:06 by wrighter wrighter
I need to watch this again, perhaps with headphones. For some reason while I recognized its beautiful and enjoyed the soundtrack thoroughly, it failed to capture me like it should have, which after seeing the reactions is hard to admit, honestly. Maybe it will get me the next time; maybe I needed the big screen atmosphere.

The visuals and music are beautiful but I feel like I'm missing something. The start seems to say there is a story in here about death or loss, but the visuals are mostly just abstract - and, to me, not in the 'abstractly hinting at some broader theme' way but just abstract. The beautiful music does enough to keep it from being just a pretty show of lines, but overall it left me wondering. Basically what Sesse said, I guess.

Such a delicate piece. Must absolutely be watched in realtime to appreciate the movement and depth.

Still demos are so incredibly easy to like.
The opening scene alone looks awesome, but when the movement starts it's impossible to not appreciate the beauty. 6 minutes is usually a bit too much, now not so.

essentially what Sesse, ferris, stjin et al said. this is a well done demo that is solid on all levels and is worthy a thumbs-up and a very high rank at the compo.

however, for some reason i just don't feel that what many people seem to overwhelmingly feel :(.
there's just.. nothing. it's moderately enjoyable, but also slow and nothing happens.
rulez added on the 2021-04-05 22:48:41 by provod provod
The demo is gray. The music isn't exactly sad, but very slow and tentative. It seems to be about death. The audience goes wild.

good - but i've watched it a few times, and like a few people commented i'm missing something.

i think the issue is that when you go this minimalist, everything has to be really perfect because everything there is so on show, there's nowhere to hide. the things that are not perfect take your attention away from the experience, drag you out of the atmosphere.

there were things that were not quite smooth: linear or abrupt movements, transitions where the supporting fade came in too early, blended stuff not looking sorted properly (the kinectscan vs the particles). the curl noise particle trail line things worked brilliantly in some moments - e.g. around 1:20 where they look structural, but looked messy and awkward in others. (and it's really not your fault but ive seen that effect so too many times because it's a notch 101 thing, so i ended up overanalysing it while watching :) ). the last section of forming meshes with the trails didn't really work for me.

Minor nitpick: Demo doesn't seem to prevent screensaver/power management from kicking in, and crashed here when the screen went blank due to that.

Alas, I am part of the crowd that this demo didn't manage to touch.
It feels as if I had missed some of the verses of the poem, and it lost me on the way.

And as Sesse and Smash pointed out, some lowly technical details worked against the intent.
For me the most jarring of them was that the lines seem to abruptly all start moving at once as a clear cut block, giving a sense of artificial and cold geometry, in direct opposition with the flow and organic idea that this story seemed to be telling. Some effects which I would have appreciated in any other prod made me wonder why they were in this one, like the blinking dots that made me think the path looked like a runway, or the Bourne Supremacy end credits 90° lines.

I'm not sure if it's those details that prevented me from fully appreciating this prod. I surely liked it, its quality is obvious from the very first plate, and the idea feels more mature and more thought through than the vast majority of even the noteworthy demos. But it didn't touch me as it should have. I will have to watch it again, but I also hope there will be a final version.

I really, really want to like this demo, but ... I can't. After two minutes, it just becomes boring and I can't see the appeal. The first 30 seconds, though, are extremely awesome and make me raise my thumb to a sufficient degree.

This is art and beyond any imagination. Only Pixtur is able to do such things. I'm fascinated, but I also have to say that my brain is not able to understand it completely. So I apologize and have to say that I'm more with KeyJ.
rulez added on the 2021-04-09 23:52:52 by Bobic Bobic
without a single doubt the most beautiful demo i have seen. ever. pixtur and cynic should hopefully be acknowledged far beyond the reach of the demoscene for this piece. and - equally important; the sound. lucid. holy shit. what a masterpiece! it could easily stand alone in the ambient world - but coupled with the talent of these two - YAY <3 standing ovation. bravo!
rulez added on the 2021-04-10 01:54:07 by xerxes xerxes
one more little tidbit (sorry).

i am so happy i dont know how to code and make demoes. you all seem to argue that a demo is bad because the code is not excting enough or poorly blahblahblah. by no means is this the case here; but come on - just watch, listen and enjoy.

if you do that and let go of all those pre-inhabited ideas of what your perfect demo would be like - life would be slightly better yes? :)

again. thank you still!

It's alright. The whole part with the face and worms was the best for me, otherwise it did not really "move" me. Still, I like how it hardly feels boring despite being so slow overall. The music is spot-on. Keep it up, and keep it slow!
rulez added on the 2021-04-10 14:02:45 by wabe wabe
So I finally had time to watch it. The demo feels polished.
Rendering is clean and subtle effects are quite impressive to watch - great job "there" or "here" ;-)
The demo is not the easiest one to watch, especially for an unsophisticated viewer - but who's sophisticated anyway :P
All in all, it's original and memorable - should have ranked higher.
rulez added on the 2021-04-11 00:25:17 by tomkh tomkh
maybe it is one of those wine demos that get better over time with some rewatches but for now it bored me a lot on the visual side. the music on the other hand is fantastic!
the soundtrack carries it a lot, esp. when the piano sets in.

The only reason I can think of that poueteers are having virtual orgasms over this demo is they are enchanted by strings and piano chords. And that's great for them, but it doesn't have the same impact on me. Maybe I just don't get it, MAN, because I'm not, like, a true ARTIST.

Anyway, I'll give it a thumb up, mainly because I also gave Strings/Wake a thumb up and I don't think this is any worse, and out of respect for the thought put into the design and sound.

I liked the beginning. The condolence image was full of details. It must have been a lot of work put into this. But the rest of the demo did not please me. I am sorry. I seem to belong to a minority as most other people liked the demo. I found it boring, both the visuals and the soundtrack. Piggy.
