  POLL: Who here is interested in the demoscene? Plus bonus question...        Go on top to this Page

So, who here is interested in the demoscene? Psycle is sort of a product of the scene, and so that's why I ask... if you don't know what I mean by the "demoscene", check out Computer Demos - The Story So Far, Orange Juice, and Pouet.net.

I quite the fan of all aspects of the demoscene.

Bonues Question: Where is everybody here from?

I'm from Langley, BC.

I've been a fan of tracking for years. I never really got into the demo scene too much though... Demos are neat, but I've never been to a demoparty or got into the graphics/coding side of things for demos... I just wanted something to compose music and play guitar along with. Impulse tracker got around to all the BBSes in my area, and it seemed to fit the bill. So, I downloaded it, and started to learn how to sample and track... that was about 7 or 8 years ago...

As for where I'm from... I'm from the other end of Canada.... I live an hour outside Toronto.

Ah, that's cool. Tracking really is where my heart is too, but I got quite the interest in things like music-disks and diskmags... especially with the former, music plays a strong role, I think.

There are really good musicians in the demoscene. These days i've discovered Pouet.net and i love it, but nothing serious to me. I'm a tracker since 11 or 12 years ago and i've seen really cool demos along all this time.
Well, it's supposed in a way or other we (trackers) belong to demoscene, isn't it?

PD: i live in Leganés, Madrid (Spain)

Mmmm.. I think this is a good moment to announce what's has been going on this past weekend and this week.


Psycle is teaming with a spanish demoscene group. There's already common code (well.. shared code ), and we are working on several ideas to make up PsyCore (the functions that reside inside Psycle), which will serve not only for next-generation Psycle (Psycle 2, codenamed PsyClean), but also for the demos of this group!!! (Obviously, the engine used in the demos will be a reduced and optimized version of it, but most of it will go in)

So... About that Schedule I wrote in the Psycle developement board, you can forget it. From now on it is Psycle 2 all the way. (Psycle 1 would have to be patched anyway for the multisequence).

About how will Psycle 2 be, that's still an open question, but I am managing the possibility of multiple interfaces. (That's what i'd like)


See you.


Btw... I like demoscene ( still remembering Future Crew. ST3 makers ) but never had much in common with it.
And I'm from Lleida (Spain)

  demoscene        Go on top to this Page

I have always been interested in the demoscene. Have forever wanted to compose music for a demo. Been too lazy to learn enough assembly to code.
First learned about trackers and demo's on my amiga 2000. Never got to explore the full potential before the family replaced it with an ibm pc. I'm sure i missed out on a whole scene only to later revisit in the present.

My thoughts on the demoscene is that it has influenced computer culture deeply and very subtle in different ways that most people dont notice. It has pushed the boundaries of computer graphics design, showcasing effects and renderings and 3d imaging that is only rivaled by the commercial industry years later.

Musically some of the greatest from the demoscene influenced artists that would later enter the pop culture and infiltrate with different ideas.

Where would video game music be without demosceners? Some of the best music ever composed was videogame music. Which of course came from people who produced demos because the demos garnered attention and later jobs even.

My thoughts are just opinions.
Opinions are powerful tools.

Listen to the music.

I found myself in the demoscene. It got me started in electronic music (which I was not at all interested in previously). I've been involved in it since Junior High, and I've never looked back.

I'm currently a member of fulcrum, and a writer for static line.

FYI, the demoscene is still going strong. There is a new annual demo party in SLC called Pilgrimage, and the Euro parties have thousands of attendees every year.

There are tons of sites like No Error and pouet.net that offer demoscene news, downloads, and other resources.

There are even specialty scenes springing up, such as a DHTML scene, a flash scene, a java scene (not as popular anymore), a gameboy advance scene, and a thriving oldskool scene, which concentrates on making demos for yesterday's hardware.

Good stuff.

I'm from Utah.

Hmm I used to follow the scene rather intensively back around 1994-1998, in the times when BBS systems were bigger than internet and Finland was on the top of it all ;)

There were great musicians & gfx artists, a lot of them, and also a ton of good code, and of course an almost complete lack of imagination & innovation.
Watching 90% of demos was somethng of a burden and there usually wasn't ESC support :P

Compared to other arts like writing, comics. movies, visual arts etc that I liked (and still like!) in those times, the demoscene definitely was the most brainless, technocentric & depressing lot of it all.

Of course there was the brilliant stuff, too, of course! And the scene itself seemed to be something really beautiful, but I never was a part of it really. But the products? Don't live up to the reputation, IMHO ;)

I'm from hell-sink-i, Finland. Yeee-ha, about 6 hours of daylight really keeps people going this time of year %-)(well, I shouldn't complain, in the north of Finland sun will next rise above the horizon sometime around march I believe...)

Very interesting subject,I know the scene very well since the times of the AMIGA,I was following all the demo parties(very beautiful times!!).
I remember that when I was sixteen years old I began to do music with the SOUNDTRACKER, then with the PROTRACKER and at last I used DIGIBOOSTER(fabulous 8 tracks….WOW!!) on the AMIGA 1200.
I loved to collect all my favourite musicians MODULES(MOBY,JOGEIR LILJEDAHL, and obviously the MANIACS OF NOISE, and a lot of others of which I don’t remember the names now but I remember many were finnish as in that period they were the best ones in the music and programming field…I think TAIKA-KIM confirm!!!!).
My dream was to become a member of a group of demo makers….obviously as a musician!!!....
I have never realized that dream…but now this community give me the possibility of knowing
Other people with my same passion for the music, and all that makes me really happy because
Finally I can know what people in the WORLD think about my songs after 10 years of hard work!!!!

THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHICH BELIEVE AND KEPP ALIVE THIS SPLENDID PROJECT
CALLED P S Y C L E!!!!!!!

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!

#MfM#

…I’m from…CATANIA,SICILY,ITALY!!!!!

I didn't really have anything to do with demoscene (I'm 16 ), but know a bit of the general history.
But I recently dicovered static line (which I registered to). I was doing a search for an answer to a question in a thread at ModPlug Central, and found a publishing of static line from 1999 with an interview of Necros (made some music for Unreal and I think Unreal Tournament). Then I searched for it (found a bunch of parachuting sites ), and found it!
So I might be getting into it . The first tracker I ever used was ModPlug, in summer 2002. Then, when it still seemed impossible that Olivier Lapicque would ever release the MPT source, I switched to Psycle, and still hope that MPT and Psycle could be merged (I know, I know: it will NEVER be ).

I'm from Leipzig, Germany. (cool city ).

Haha, well I'm certainly old enough (soon 24), but never found out about the demoscene till 2001.

I remember some old amiga demo's I've seen at a friends house (Jesus on e's was his favorite), but it never occured to me there was a whole scene around it.

Never gave any thought to the concept of trackers, only heard about programs like Cakewalk and Cubase (and those I didn't like)...

Nowadays I don't have much free time to compose. Oh well, that's life I guess.
