Data Airlines has just re-issued Commodore Grooves, and that made me think about videos and demos. Here’s a few of them that includes music from the album.
This Triad demo uses Raymond, and was released in 2001.
This video was made by Entter using the cassette-based video camera PXL-2000.
The Fantasy-video was released in 2004, in ye ancient times before video streaming and Youtube was a thing. Entter hosted the video on their servers, but didn’t really anticipate that it would become so popular. It was downloaded about 20,000 times I think, which created so much traffic that they had to pay a huge fee to the providers. In the end it worked out well, though. Funny how the cost of video has changed over the years..
Ull8 was used in one of the parts of the C64-demo 10 Strong Years. It was released to celebrate 10 years of Hack n’ Trade (the demogroup I founded) but it was delayed a few years. Besides, it later turned out that HT was not formed in 1993 as I always thought, but actually in 1994. Anyway.
At that time I worked a lot with Hollowman, first with his Triad-demos and then his demos for Fairlight. Pretending To See The Light uses Slobban.
Finally, this bad boy was featured as a video on the data part of the CD. It was made by Jens Nirme, who I lived with at the time.
