You started going a bit too much for animations of a few frames, but this looks like a real demo again.

Lots of content, good pacing and sync, very entertaining.

Such a huge collection of original ideas and unique and engaging scenes. Doesn't have much of a coherent whole, but the parts are just superb by themselves so it doesn't really matter.

Wow, some of the design/effect ideas were brilliant. And the music sync at some points, like the train, awesome. The moment it changes to the girl with wind awesome. Even if the first demo has more effects and nice tune, this looked so unique to me. Well done, Speccy rulez!

some really well designed scenes and borrowed ideas. the latter is kind of standard approach on zx, good you mocked on this in info.

"Spiral Angel Wrap" by Henning Ludvigsen

It is a note from my working folder. Didn't know that he is Bridgeclaw.

This is a party version of the demo and a party version of file_id.diz
Full nfo file with proper credits will follow a bit later.

Other graphics are copy too.
The first one is a copy of photo with Moran Atias. Next two I need to find, don't have the exact information right now.

Also I will upload all the references and steps to zxart.ee later after returning from party.

Thx for mentioning it.

I wish the loading screen was displayed longer :) Yes, since the late 90s there has been not enough beauty on the scene. The reflections in the glasses made me jawdrop. Great basses.

Great flow and original ideas. And this is yet another example how superior the Spectrum scene is compared to the C64 scene when it comes to sync and pacing.
rulez added on the 2016-09-04 09:24:52 by Kylearan Kylearan
Excellent design and micro-sync, especially in the begin and the subway effect. My favorite effects is girl in the wind, child with glasses and of course last image on border.
More demos like this, please :)

The amount of design and polishing is insane. It's such a pleasure to see somebody doing something utterly beautiful with the ZX color palette. The timing is brilliant, and I never during the 5min had the urge to skip forward like in 99% of old-school-demos.
rulezcdc added on the 2016-09-12 23:57:00 by pixtur pixtur
Super as always despite not really placing among my favorite Spectrum demos. Pacing is still far better than most contemporary C64 demos.
rulez added on the 2016-09-13 00:23:24 by noby noby
I kept a few weeks more time to think about it: This is the best thesuper demo until the E & Recycler golden era, sadly not so stunning but still well designed with beautiful gfx and great sync. There are some mindblowing parts like the wicker shape, parallax stripes, girl in the wind, rotating arcs, reflections in the sunglasses and metro part - right next to the boring parts with color rectangles and that weird 3D statue... :) Also, nq's soundtrack in noizcore/minimal style isn't my cup of coffee but it was pretty good synced up to the video.
So, overall it's an another great speccy prod. Like!
(it's pity that available only in trd distribution - please give us a tape :)

Perfect flow = pace + sync with (great) music is flawless. Nice gfx and great final gfx. Some stylish scenes also. (Note: don't know much about ZX, can't say about stunning fx, I just don't see them.)

Can't stand that one more time.
Just some words from diщer4d, said by him some time ago (sorry for russian, google translates that rather good):
Я не рад и мне не нравится.
1) Меня никто не спросил, хочу ли я, чтобы мои картинки были в этих демах
2) Я сам решил, где мне выставлять картинки — на компо, на сайте или еще где-то
3) Я не уверен, что в демах присутствует четкая информация о том, какая картинка чьего авторства
4) «Свободны к распространению» — это абсолютно не то же самое что «повторное использование в новых продуктах». Распространять на сайтах, в блогах и прочем с указанием авторства — ок. Использовать без разрешения в демах — неуважение к автору.

Really impressive! When I showed this demo to one of my friends he thought it was a Speccy-styled Amiga demo :) He couldn't believe it was an actual ZX Spectrum :)

FAO gloom: "IMHO: "ripping" is a pretty harsh term being thrown around here. Clearly some parts were heavily inspired by existing works, and those inspirations turned into recreations, but recreating and reinterpreting something isn't the same as ripping, especially not in the demoscene sense." Just saying.
