A lot of cool ideas.
Some of the fx use human perception errors and show the depth where it does not exist ;-)
It could be more dynamic.
Great one!

I changed my my opinion about this demo some 6 months ago: from very good to excellent. It has had a larger impact on me than Red Storm , although the effects are less "advanced".

Love the Overall design of this demo!
No 'yelling' no 'screaming'. Music suits it perfectly!

I love this! A demo without even ONE char of text, if you exclude the traditional TRIAD-packer intro, thats provocative and almost arrogant. I love the calm tempo, it takes a lot of your attention. Its just like listening to the rain or experience a sunset over an open sea. Keep it up guys!

Some visuals are really fresh and great! Some do not appeal to me. Good demo, nevertheless.

This is one of the best demos I've ever seen, if not THE. I still almost cant believe it exists. I was at the LCP party where it was first shown and it hypnotized me in my chair so bad it felt like i was entering another dimension. It was interesting to see how silent almost the entire crowd went while this was shown, and when it was over I heard myself screaming like a ecstatic pig all alone. I didnt expect this to win the compo (even if it surely deserved to), but I consider this a very important demo, a milestone in demomaking. Thanks iopop.

it showed to me even without reading the note, that this one has something to do with real art :) I agree with the rest: this should've won, and the parts are too long onscreen.

I thought the demo was good but boring. A higher tempo should have made it better in my opinion.

This felt too slow at the party, but I was very tired then. Great visuals, but the music destroys the mood. So basically I agree with HCL and Mathman.

This demo should have won the LCP04 compo!! And i agree with previous opinion, if the ultra-cozy music stayed all the time it would have been a straight 10!

good stuff. very consistent and with a solid idea behind. i also like that it's not the "wow" kind of demo, more like something you drift away to... i think i might have given it a perfect 10 if only the music had stayed lsd-ambient-psychotic during the entire demo.

Cool effects, indeed a bit slow in changing the effects. Could be to dramatise the effects, but in my opinion the effects could do without the drama. The tunes fit the design very well.

Love the style, at the partyplace I got abit annoyed over the delay between minipic and effekt, but might be because of exhaustion, anyway this demo rullar.
