Seems like predator pt2, but with some nice electronica instead of techno.

The visuals were nice, but not new, and too random perhaps, and the music clicked a fair bit (i generally have no problems with stuttering/clicking demos, so i'm guessing its the code). Music is really good though if i listen with winamp.

nice music, otherwise a disappointment :( (although it looks correct on my screen)

psonice: the clicking is intentional

wow this was beautiful.
it's not the perfect demo but it really touched me in some strange way i can't really explain. just the feeling from the moving music, the flashes from life in industrial society... it's like a feeling of disconnection, apathy... or whatever x)

Best demo of the compo, even if it wasn't very dynamic or good looking. The music is great.

uncle-x: no clicks in the mp3, clicks in the demo, and you say the clicks are intentional. That implies that you made extra code to add clicks to the music... I'm not sure if I should be impressed by that or not ;)

I don't like ;\

The music was good, but I was waiting for it to slow down and actually show some scenes at less-than-subliminal speed. (Then I remembered this is MFX) As it is, I don't know what I saw, and I have a strange irresistable urge to eat pie now.

psonice: the extra code part is correct.
added on the 2004-01-13 16:23:47 by uncle-x uncle-x
uncle-x: any particular reason for doing that? I'm still not convinced it was a good idea :)

Btw, synteesi's photos are good.

Judging by the title, I'm assuming this is a parody, so I wouldn't take the clicks too seriously. They probably represent the unpredictability of life's or its unforeseen threats, the deaths of war victims, or whatever you want them to mean.

Anyway, quite a humorous demo, though it could have done with an extensive info file asserting its artistic merit and insulting the intelligence of anyone who can't see it. :)

Cool stuff :)

is the vsync turned off or is my driver fucked? (i did experience some bugs when the driver switched off vsync after running some opengl app, but everything seemed ok now, apart from the tearing :)

anyway, the music is cool.

cute but a bit boring.

soundtrack isn't clicking enough to my taste.

visuals are excellent, but they don't match the soundtrack's direction.

and that title, no comment..
added on the 2004-01-14 15:29:31 by florent florent
Visuals and music were ok, but uhm, didn't really like it that much. I didn't find it particularly boring, more like hmm... ok, I can't think of a suitable word. But I guess MFX has to go experimental every once in a while. ;-P
added on the 2004-01-14 17:56:41 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
MFX you need to lay of the sauce for a while. While i admit to be the first one to appreciate artistic freedom in the scene. Your productions as of lately have started to travel up their own arse. Seriously, uncle must be joking. Ofcourse he didnt ruin a perfectly good tune, with random clicking, that to him represent some wierd abstract hidden meaning, that no mere mortals could ever start to imagine. All those clicks does is, to annoy human beings with a normal IQ and working sense apperatus, but ofcourse he knows that, his code clearly shows more IQ than most can come up with.

So now ill be the first to say this out loud...

[that is what i first wanted to add, then i smoked a "J" and saw it again. Only this time with lights off, volume cranked up, and i just stared at the screen the same way you view 3d images. Now that was actually pretty cool. So it's the pig, but the click need be gone bitch ;)>

"l'art tout pourri" should be the correct title.

incredible ... first demo i prefer watching eyes closed ;) ... anyway, music is calm and nice, but visuals are just too weird for me ... i don't like it. 'L'art prétentieux' a good title for such abstract art like that !

A whole lot of nothing. And in exciting shades of grey, no less!

Its a fast prod and it seems like that.

Decent music, but quite lacking in the "visuals" department.

The sync seems wrong. But the clicks in the music made it look like intentional :-)

I keep misreading the title as "fart pretentieux" n- which fits just as well!
