Mindcandy Volume 3: PC Demos

Mindcandy Volume 3 proves quite admirably that there’s no dearth of talent in private homes around the world, guys (for the most part, anyway) who just like fooling around with their computers and seeing what they can create with them. While there’s obviously no real rhyme or reason in terms of a through line on this compilation, there’s a lot of staggeringly beautiful imagery and some very nicely done music as well. It would have been nice to have had an actual credits page, instead of the internet “gamertags” these guys tend to use, so that any further career developments could be more closely followed. Some may find the Supplements here overly technical, but they’re fascinating a lot of the time. The only real downside to this Blu-ray is the lack of lossless audio. As ambient television and as examples of what the personal computer can accomplish, this is some of the most interesting stuff to come down the pike in a long time. Recommended.
