it's nearly africa by fraterchaos it's nearly africa by fraterchaos
Mandelbulb 3D 1.8.2


another tweak of the Mandelbulber to mandelbulb 3D params bt taurus66 from fractalforums at [link] but this one I added ABoxMod1

a tribute to the wonderful music of XTC and the greeat song by the same name... (ok, I know it may not really be a perfect fit for the title and song... but for some reason, it seems right to me...)

hear it here: [link]

Lyrics:

Chant your spirit free;
Rush to greet truth like a dart
Shake your bag o'bones,
Shake your bag o'bones.
That's not traffic roar,
That's a leopard in your heart,
Shake your bag o'bones,
Shake your bag o'bones.

Go tell your stale friends,
Go tell false prophets,
And drug traffickers,
Not to try to push our bodies any faster
We're dancing with disaster,
And the first will be the last,
It's nearly Africa,
Oh-oh,
It's nearly Africa,
Oh-oh,

Any day now,
Any day, now now

Unplug future plans;
Finger-paint the sun on you,
Shake your bag o'bones,
Shake your bag o'bones,
Mend your missing links,
I think trust should be the glue,
Shake your bag o'bones,
Shake your bag o'bones,

Go tell your warboys,
Go tell all leeches,
And blind panickers,
Not to try to push your bodies any faster,
We're dancing with disaster,
And the first will be the last,
It's nearly Africa,
Oh-oh,
It's nearly Africa,
Oh-oh,

Any day, now
Any day, now now

Our civilisation car is running wild,
Who did you give the wheel to?
The fat man driving us over the edge of the nearest cliff-face,
Is he the same god that I've seen you kneel to?

This is stunning! I love the blur in the foreground and background. And then, of course, there's the beautiful, silvery, natural-looking centre! Wonderful work!

Nicely done! Very organic-looking; looks a little bit like a snake, albeit an enormously deformed snake. Kind of creepy, but very cool.

Pretty cool man. Haven't looked at that thread for a couple days, have to go see what he's up to. This one seems rather speedy compared to the others, wonder if it's the Mod1 speeding it up or just the particular view.
Reply
:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I think its partly mod1... I have been paying more attention to how long stuff takes in the Navi window, and then trying to find settings that render faster there, which usually translates to faster full size renders too...

thanks Len!

You got it man, I do that too, you can tell from how long a Nav scan takes if it will be a quick or slow render.
Reply
:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yep... I never thought of that at first, but over time I realized it would probably be the same, and now I usually try to find ones that scan quickly in the Navi

:faint: OMG! I used to be a HUGE fan of XTC, but haven't listened to anything of theirs for ages. THANK YOU for reminding me of this track - it's just wonderful. I'd completely forgotten about this song! Another of my favourite tracks is "Complicated Game". Incidentally, XTC's recording studio is not far from where I live - about 15 miles away, I think.

And I think your piece is quite fitting, by the way :nod:
Reply
:iconfraterchaos:
fraterchaos Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
wow, glad I could remind you of their music! Not sure if I have heard "Complicated Game" so I'll definitely see if I can find it on YT and give a listen... I love their older work a lot, so raw and different from anything else even at that time, but I also liked the way they grew and progressed.

Wow, cool that you live close by... maybe some day you'll run into Andy on the street? if you do tell him I think he's great! LOL

thank you!
