Demoscene – The Art of the Algorithms

Moleman 2: Demoscene – The Art of the Algorithms – a film that examines the art of demos, is available to view for free online or as a download:

As an impact of the spreading of computer technology, some new art sections have been born. Some of them just digitized the analogue forms, but some produced whole new artistic forms.

In former times, image-, and sound-based arts required not only intellectual but physical skills as well. Nowadays, computer programming allows us to create new-styled artworks using only our intellectual skills.

The 90 minute film explores demoscene subculture, told by mostly Hungarian sceneres, but it features also some other nationalities.

  1. Thank you for posting! A friend of mine had shoe boxes of floppies of pirated games for the ST. That was in the 80s of course. The whole thing started as an annoying “cracked by so and so. Please click here”. But then those intros became so good there was very little point playing the cracked game. There was no need to “click here to continue”. I would try to collect the best intros my floppy budget could afford. My joystick ( started to feel sad.
    Of course the war ST VS Amiga was in full swing. But some of my friend were “diplomats” and owned both. Not only the Amiga sound was better but you could make image copies of ST disks as is on the Amiga. That was fun.

    Then one day among the games was this utility thing no one knew what it was for called Pro 24. I started to learn about it then started to reformat all my floppies to make more and more rooms for my pro 24 files.. .Who was mike hunter? 🙂
