ABOUT SUNDOWN & THE DEMOSCENE

Sundown 2009 is an established U.K. based demoscene party, now in it’s fifth year. The demoscene is a computer subculture dedicated to showcasing the talents of musicians, artists, designers and programmers in a competition based atmosphere with clearly defined limitations.

Competitions held are generally as follows:

  • Old School – Productions that are targetted at older computers with a static configuration (an increased technical challenge, pushing limitations on older hardware via efficient programming).
  • New School – Productions that are targetted at high end modern systems – challenges being exploiting of new hardware facilities and production skills.
  • Intro – A production that cannot exceed 64kb in size (a quite severe limitation, combining resourcefulness with innovation).
  • Music – As a general composed using specific methods or software or a general musicianship competition.

Productions in the Old and New School sense generally require a good sense of direction and always have a synchronised soundtrack to add to the atmosphere.

Participants to Demoscene parties generally stay in the party hall from Friday until Sunday (showers of course!) to exchange ideas, participate in judging the entries to competitions and often taking part in “Fast” competitions – creative competitions held within the time constraints of a single party.
