Here we go, demo #2 released! :) Let me know what you think.

YouTube link coming soon, trying to fix some video quality issues. This demo does not like to be recorded :\

Short but very sweet layered stuff going on, the music could need some more punch for such a short statement

Nice one :-)

Really liked this one. Visually very good, some really pretty scenes. Musically, there is no bass and it needs a lot more variation and edits to keep things interesting. All in good effort though for a one man demo show. Motivational thumb.

djhoffman: agreed on the music, this is all I could pull off with my *very* limited musical ability. Maybe you can help me out next time ;)

Thanks for the capture w0lf, YouTube is totally killing the quality though, I'm trying to do a 2k-60fps one right now, should have some better quality. Will upload soon.

Added a Vimeo with slightly better quality (still horrible). HD YouTube uploading now.

still traumatized my that beat drop so no idea if the graphics side was good or not..

1in10: lol, yeah, I'm thinking of doing a final version with some actual bass (and some small visual updates). Probably won't sound anything spectacular still, but should be better than this.
added on the 2016-05-16 07:33:22 by sohx1 sohx1
i would just take the whole beat away. music would fit better to visuals.
plain chords..the safe way

I feel chilled. Cool particles!

Here is the somewhat better quality / 2k YouTube capture (still not great). Best to just watch this in real time (it's not very demanding). Final version of the demo coming soon as well.

A lot of the visual/technical content is cool, as is the music. I just don't feel like they speak to each other much at all. The disconnect retracts from my enjoyment quite a bit, but I still liked this a lot.

not bad but boring =/

Preacher: Yeah, I'm starting to see that now, I'll try and make it work better in the final.
added on the 2016-05-17 00:22:02 by sohx1 sohx1
i quite liked the glitchbox scene. the other scenes (mostly particles) seem disconnected, but it's a good tech test run, next up: coherency and better music, i'd say :)

thumb for that tune alone! ♪ ♫ ♥ agree on "disconnect", but still pretty cool, 2nd of the compo in my book ;)
rulez added on the 2016-05-17 20:26:45 by HellMood HellMood
some nice scenes and some ugly ones. but the tune: fuck yessssss! thumbs for that.
rulez added on the 2016-05-17 20:33:54 by sensenstahl sensenstahl
wow, thanks HellMood and sensenstahl! glad someone liked the tune :) new and (hopefully) improved version coming soon.
added on the 2016-05-18 05:11:37 by sohx1 sohx1
Oh I liked the tune too, just needs more 'oomph' to fit the visuals
Final version ready. Visuals are pretty much the same (just some bug and perf fixes).

Mainly a music update. I've added some bass and variation to the track based on h0ffman's suggestion (thanks!). Hopefully it sounds and works better now. It could definitely use some more work, but I'm tired of looking at this demo now so this will probably be the final version :)

Let me know what you think. Better ? Worse ? Same ?

Vimeo YouTube Demo

Also, Thanks for all the comments and feedback!

I like it, great one man show. The particle effects are nice, many of the effects remind me of some recent epoch demos which is cool because I like that style. The music is good, well I like the ambient parts but the breakbeat part is weak. It's much better with the bass but maybe needs some more variation than just following the chord root note. Overall this is decent and there is much potential, just needs a little more refinement, I look forward to seeing what you come up with next.

Thanks for the feedback drift! :)

Good progress. The garish rgb distortion is a bit much, would've preferred this to be completely b/w. The visual ideas and transitions are good, there are some very nice long shots here.
rulez added on the 2016-05-23 00:13:38 by noby noby
@noby: thanks! yeah, I was definitely on the fence about the rgb shifts, but just left it in for some variation. Agreed, full b/w with maybe some better post/shading would have been a better option.
added on the 2016-05-23 00:23:03 by sohx1 sohx1
I like this version.
rulez added on the 2016-06-06 23:18:26 by kaoD kaoD
In general: solid. For a one man show: outstanding. Not sure what the music sounded like before, but currently I think it sounds great. A few really interesting scenes. Doesn't drag on too long. Thumbs up from me.
rulez added on the 2016-06-16 22:46:33 by orby orby
I like the opening and the ending part. Kinda gorgeous.
