fuck yeah.
the soundtrack is simply dope.
the visuals+direction are carefully crafted&polished.

this kind of stuff almost cant be too long imho, but progressively takes one further and further, hypnotizing.
rulez added on the 2017-08-05 23:09:55 by Serpent Serpent
Yeah, I was actually thinking "thank god it's so long". One of my favorites from the compo!

Finally a well-paced prod that doesn't run out of ideas. It's niche, but it's the good kind of niche.

Well the music is just amazing and the visual components perfectly mesh together while never overstaying their welcome. The tempo of it all delivers and packs a strong punch.

Repetitive visuals, blinking and music, surely it didn't need to be that long. Still, it's interspersed with sufficient greatness for a thumb. Also, dat scrolltext.

Overall this demo and the melancholy demo were this year's highlights squeezed into the same compo. Oh darn the direction in this! Maybe two more hours with the synching could've made this tiny bit better but oh well. :D

Very good!

Cool stuff. But it hurts a bit too see the Lee Perry Smith model without decent shading. Also, it's CC BY-NC, which requires attribution, which I couldn't find anywhere.
added on the 2017-08-06 12:33:05 by kusma kusma
kusma: I suppose that was kinda the whole joke (the shading should be decent but it's not realistically parameterized). I didn't pick the model and wasn't aware of the license, but we'll remedy that. Thanks for letting us know.
added on the 2017-08-06 12:35:45 by noby noby
Noby: depends on your definition of "decent" i guess. In this case, I found the lack of occlusion (seemingly for all components) around the nostrils very disturbing. And not in a good way, in a "yikes, this looks like cheap CG"-way. Don't get me wrong, it's a minor point, but I'm pretty picky when it comes to these things ;-)
added on the 2017-08-06 12:54:38 by kusma kusma
A bit too long but great nevertheless.

Looks like a 90s DJ background (in a good way), must have been a lot of work. Never gonna watch it again.
rulez added on the 2017-08-06 13:59:36 by reptile reptile
Long? This? ADHD much? Well executed, consistent visually, pleasing musically, the perfect length for the content. Not mindblowing but an all-around solid performance.
rulez added on the 2017-08-06 14:49:54 by break break
the music is ultra meh, but decent visuals kinda saved it. Weak thumb from me

It does run out. But when it happens, it's so deep in thumbs-up territory, that I don't care that much. :)

Great music. Great visuals. Great length. Clearly not to everyone's tastes.

What more can you ask for? :)
rulez added on the 2017-08-06 20:10:12 by evilpaul evilpaul
banger soundtrack and great visuals, gets a bit repetitive at the end, i'd compress it to 80% of the length ;)

IMHO, the best all around demo this year. It starts to hit these points where it escapes the scene and ends up as "artform". Reminds me of great episodes of Amp back in the day.
rulez added on the 2017-08-06 22:27:58 by elblanco elblanco
Perfect example of a piggie. Runs for too long and has uncanny valley al over it with that green model. If it wasn't for the post and the amount of work this would have been a thumb down bu there is some cool stuff that saves it.

rulez added on the 2017-08-06 23:33:04 by v3nom v3nom
started promising, then got sloppy on syncs, then recovered, then got sloppy again, then sort of ended.
maybe needs a few more plays to understand / recognize some of the syncs better. O_o
it definitely had some good parts though.
rulez added on the 2017-08-07 00:26:50 by psenough psenough
Reptile's comment about 90's visuals is actually pretty spot on, even if I would not subscribe to the latter sentence. Will also have to agree with the majority about the length, but it's still an extremely stylish demo.
rulez added on the 2017-08-07 05:33:00 by Trilkk Trilkk
too long, i like most of the visuals, thumb goes mostly for the music though

Superb atmosphere! 90s technovideo vibes. MTV partyzone or the German Viva channel.

according to the track and the visualz its a clubtro, which also explains the length.
I was entertained although I think it works better in a club (or the compo) than at home

Years back this could have been a VIVA 2 musicvideo in germany ;-) Aesthetically very nice and polished. The face model gives it some kind of personality. The soundtrack is quite distinct what I like. It doesn't sound like the normal contemporary demo: And that's good.
rulez added on the 2017-08-08 23:53:24 by neoman neoman
even better at home, somehow the mix felt flat on the party
rulez added on the 2017-08-08 23:55:59 by msqrt msqrt
kusma: by the way I talked with sm about the model and he said where he sourced it from had it licensed under public domain. If I had to venture a guess though I'd put money on you being correct and the site mistaken.

Also about the rasterized lighting.. yeah it has some funky screen space shadows that can get a bit ugly, but other than that the ggx shading should be in order (not that it's anything special at all). I of course understand where you're coming from, I'm very picky about these things too :)

I usually don't like that style of music, but the visual ideas, pace and sync were interesting enough to leave me interested and hooked until the end. I love how it surprised me with new things even in the last quarter of the demo (even though I'm an idiot an hadn't realized during my first watch that one of the effects is in fact a scroller - I had switched my vision to abstract mode too much by that time :p).

The rendering style of the human model didn't quite fit in though, at least IMHO. But apart from that this is awesome! Hopefully I'll get to see this on some bigscreen one day.

Now I'll have to watch it again to try to get an idea how one syncs something like this, i.e. how the balance between manual and automatic syncing might be.
rulez added on the 2017-08-10 23:48:18 by Kylearan Kylearan
Stays fresh throughout, coordinated with the music very well, and good effects.

Epoch is my fav contemporary group from Finland, so not much of complains :) some compositions could be slightly more coherent... Feels a bit like two VJs collaborating on a techno party. Great sequel to Emix! For some party, all great techno demos needs to be mixed into one set...
Great to hear Ronny's music again and each track with different mood.
