Roland Alpha Juno

YouTube Preview Image

The Roland Alpha Juno line was released in 1985. While the Alpha Juno synths have a basic architecture, they still sound great, because of their combination of analog filter & ‘warm’ chorus effect.

This audio demo is all Alpha Juno, featuring multi-tracked Roland Alpha Juno 1 and MKS 50 (rack mount). The only effects used are delay, reverb and auto-pan.

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.
