A while ago I was at the developer conference Øredev. The theme of the year was art, so there was plenty of demoscene stuff.

First, I made a live performance with a C64 and a guitar pedal. I connected the guitar pedal wrong though, so I ended up not using it. The elite/lamer blend strikes again.

Also made a talk with the theme of “the demoscene vs the art world”. I explained how they are fundmentally different things, and what cultural concepts in the 8-bit demoscene that society could learn from. Let’s sum it up here as: Free distribution of executable files in a DIY infrastructure, and a distributed system for “copyright” sanctions. More at chipflip.wordpress.com.

The Øredev conference was divided into different rooms that was named after a famous demoscene group. And me.
