I think this is one of the best demos, ever! The music is for me just totally insane.... and the visuals to go with it.. this is a fantastic demo, even better than revolved... i do not know why bu this is so true, i beleive in this... man you are great... watched all your latest demos this evening... i will keep out of theds demo thread just because i made a mess before... this solaris demo has for me one of the best sid tunes to make it so special... I absolutely adore you all!

I do not know what to say really, on the party there were a bug in gfx but the demo were super... and the tune is in my mind something i never ever have heard live from another artist on data or real life artist and it is just amasingly superior to most.... fantastic art and put together. i think archmage is way better that twoflower but that he will show soon in the near future, and two flower is in the best designers within the five current so i do not mean to put you down... me, i am like 86 place so carry on you special ones!

Great stuff! Twoflower is my favourite designer on the C64, hands down. And beautiful tuneage from Ne7!

Nice and stunning sounds. But what I like best in this demo is the introduction of layers. The gfx and effects seemingly fade in and out independently. This is so beautiful.

HCL: The c64 that we used during the start of the compo was sadly broken, which affected our demo. Glad it didn't ruin the experience for you though, but personally I preferred when the demo was re-run on a working c64 at the end of the compo. :)

Beautifully designed, as with all Twoflower's work. Whilst it might not have the stunning effects of Wonderland XII, this creates an atmosphere and emotion that not many C64 demos have. It's a lovely combination of visual effects and sound. My only small criticism is that I almost wish it didn't have the human faces. The rest feels quite machine like, almost alien, and seeing a human face breaks that feeling a little for me.

Original. Code could be better however.

Somehow the bugs that appeared live at the party fitted in a strange way :).

You guys keep releasing high quality demo art like there's no tomorrow and this was no exception. Watching it on the big screen was a great ride. I like the suggestive theme.

Beautiful in its own.
So many thoughts, I’d wished others had done.
Non-narrative patterns, repetitions and flutes.
Like days in the calendar; seasons of the year.
Poetic touches underneath the glazing of the paint.
