21st july 2006 | The Tank, New York City
Computer Art from Europe in New York City
Digitale Kultur e.V. is proud to present an introduction to the demoscene at The Tank (New York City) on July 21st. The event starts at 8 PM. The entrance fee is $7 for the 60 minutes running presentation.
Ethan Vogt, Creative Director of Furnace Media, will be screening award-winning Demos from recent European Demo Parties.
Rarely seen in the U.S., Demos are computer-generated music videos created by teams of graphic designers, musicians, and programmers. Emerging from hacker culture and reminiscent of digital graffiti, Demos are custom-built software programs that produce 3D visuals in real-time on your computer.
At annual events (Demo Parties) across Europe these teams (Demo Groups) gather to compete in categories ranging from Best Visual Design to best Demo under 4 Kilobytes filesize (so-called Intros) which means the program is smaller than an empty Word document.
The Tank is located at 279 Church Street between Franklin and White. Contacting The Tank by phone: +1 212 563 6269
