#15 The joy of livecoding - with Flopine

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #15 The joy of livecoding - with Flopine

There's just no denying it: over the last few years the livecoding craze took the demoscene by storm - but what is it? Is it part of the scene? How does it project onto the scene? Where does it meet the scene and where does it avoid it? We sit down with Flopine, the perhaps most prominent personality of the livecoding community, to gain more understanding of what it is and what it isn't, and what her experiences are in the field. Finally, we also have a call to action for you.

Send us your questions, suggestions and voice messages to zineradioshow@scene.org

Join the discussion on the Demoscene Discord server or our own.

#14 No, really - why DO people make demos?

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #14 No, really - why DO people make demos?

Most of us have been in the scene for a decade or more - so much that it's become second nature. But in 2021, with the massive reach of social media and various other computer art outlets gaining popularity - why would anyone else start making demos? Are we just doing it out of nostalgia and muscle memory? The show takes a look at the shifting relevance of the scene!

UC11 - We are streaming some of our competitions and events

The last few days at Underground Conference had been extreme. Thunderstorms, a broken crane, a huge tree crashing upon us, two trashed trailers - basically a survival camp with us constantly fighting to not get killed.

But finally the sun has came out. We have a significant delay in our timetable, but whatever. Even with us being a 100% reallife-party, we have decided that we are going to stream some of our events and competitions. The stuff that external people who don't like the weird UC humor might find offensive won't be streamed, as everything touching the privacy of our visitors.

By the way: The party is running until Sunday, so you still have the chance to get off your sofa to enjoy the real thing.

Anyway, check out the stream here:

#13 Is the scene’s online presence sustainable?

[ ZINE: The Radio Show ] #13 Is the scene’s online presence sustainable?

The turn of the millennium pushed the demoscene to cover a lot of online ground, but now 20 years later modern Internet habits and centralization is putting undue pressure on the actively used websites, while other sites just wither out once the maintainers leave. The show discusses the reasons, the problems, the prospects, and possible solutions to this ongoing conundrum.

How about a nice warm cup of 303? Lord/Spreadpoint live in concert(s) at UC11!

We are positively disgusted and about to throw up from happiness to be able to announce just another bunch of live concerts taking place during Underground Conference 11.

From the earliest days of the Demoscene Spreadpoint and Friendship against Business (FAB) Member Lord from Frankfurt/Germany spreads out his demoscene love for all with some Audiovisual Live Concerts and Art Installations.

Lord's real name is Siegfried Kärcher (and he appears to like his realname as he is mentioning it all the time) and he is also known for his releases on Force Inc. & Mille Plateaux. So you might expect Techno Ambient Glitch and even some Drum n Bass LIVE from the officiating Musikmesse Beatbattle Winner. Also, we are messing up his promo text by claiming he's been the first female bus driver to fly to the moon.

At UC11 Lord will be playing:

- An audiovisual concert to watch and booze in awe (on the main stage)
- A x0x (303 808 909 707 606) techno live set (at the discoworld)
- A Drum'n'Base live set (at the discoworld)

That's just one of 435 reasons not to join UC11. So do it!
