Buenzli Survey - Feedback wanted!

At Buenzli 19 we announced the change of location for Buenzli 20. Now that we slowly start organizing things again, we felt that it was time to gather some feedback from our past, current and future visitors. We would like to know about your relationship with Buenzli, what features you think are needed and how good or bad we performed up to now. We know your time is precious and greatly appreciate your willingness to participate in our survey. The survey is located at http://www.buenz.li/pages/survey19.html.

Last Minute News

We are at the party place, building up the site for you. This also brings a few news items and changes for those that are planning to visit us this weekend.

First of all, there’s still the same car detour as last year (which means, that our travelling guide is a bit wrong in the end). Generally, you can always fillow the direction to "Museum" or "Kirchgemeindehaus", the street will lead you along the Buenzli location. Check this map for a bird’s view on the detour. In case of troubles and you feeling lost, just call our hotline.

Further, we have a bit of a delicate situation here, since the rest of the location building is booked, too. We kindly ask you to follow the special rule tweaks we have to apply (see more at the party place, slides). Thank you!

And now: Back to work - we’re opening the party in 7 hours :-)

Last Buenzli at current Location?

Are you still unsure whether to come to Buenzli or not? If so, the following information might make you come: This might very well be the last Buenzli at the current location. The church organ, the landmarked building, the gallery and of course the parquet floor. Come to Buenzli 19 to see it for the last time. We try hard to make it possible to come back to the same location again, but the circumstances might prevent this. So, take you chance to see the classic Buenzli again or be back for everything new at Buenzli 20 :-)

Twice the Fun: Combined Ticket

Evoke might be one week after Buenzli this year, but this doesn’t stop us from giving you twice the fun for not quite twice the price: If you plan to go to Buenzli as well as Evoke, you should buy the infamous "Combined Ticket". For only 65 Euros (instead of 70) you’ll be able to enjoy the compos of Evoke and Buenzli back to back.

So, if you are man enough to try this, mention that you would like to buy a combined ticket at the Buenzli infodesk and have your cash ready. One week later, at the Evoke infodesk you show your Buenzli bracelet and the ticket and you’re in. That’s it!

If you were not yet planning to go to Buenzli and Evoke, isn’t this reason enough to think it over?!

Competitions with PROCESSING

It’s now time to inform you about a major change in our competitions this year. We had a great success when we introduced the "4k procedural graphics competition" some years ago, and are happy to see this competition at all major demoparties now featuring kickass quality releases.

Buenzli is always striving for new ways entertaining both, the crowd and the artists. We are now going to open our competitions for entries made with PROCESSING, a powerful experimental framework for realtime artists - the definitive sketchbook for artists and coders. Our goal is to attract new masterminds to the demoscene. This brings easy access for everyone to the ‘big’ competitions.

So, what will change this year? The wild competition is where we want to see realtime and interactive software in any way. Go and film your installation. Do it live on stage. This is your playground! The demo competition allows non-interactive but realtime entries made with PROCESSING aswell. We are really looking forward to see traditional demos compete with unique entries made with PROCESSING. More information on our competition pages.

So go and fire up your favourite compiler, fire up PROCESSING and go and kick ass!

Kenobit & Arottenbit - Surfing on Square Waves

Kenobit’s live 8 bit show is going to get the party folks started at Buenzli 19 on Friday, August 20th, 2010, 10pm. The powerful sound of a simple game boy, surfing on square waves since 1989. Kenobit plays his flavour of techno music using only 2 Game Boys, with no extra effects. He’ll be playing one of his pumping 8 bit sets at Buenzli 19. Pre-listen the sound of Kenobit on www.myspace.com/kenobit.

Update: Arottenbit will join Kenobit in his live show.

Buenzli 19 features GAME ARCADE

Buenzli is more than a demoparty: In the tradition of bringing you something special every year, we found something extraordinary: The GAME ARCADE by mobileskino from Basel consists of arcade gaming machines in original size which, contrary to their appearance and external functionality, do not contain any computers and screens at all. They work purely with analogue technology. The game surfaces which visually remind of digital games of the 80ies are being reproduced by Super8 and slide projections, but are still completely interactive.

At Buenzli 19, two of the machines are presented: The 8-BOX, a shooting game, and the RACER, a racing game. Analog strikes back! See photos of these fine pieces hardware. The objects will be presented on Saturday.

While you are watching all the world cup games, we have been working quite a bit to finish this year’s Buenzli website. The all new layout and design was created by Genox, you probably have seen the elements of it on our flyer, already. It took a while to get it online, but we give you quite something with the launch now, too: Pretty much everything is ready, except for the timetable (which will follow in the near future). Take a look at all the pages, information and don’t forget to register and set a link to us on your own website. Cowee, our mascot, is looking forward to see you soon!

We are still in desperate need of sponsors, so if you think you can support us in some way, get in touch and help make Buenzli 19 awesome. To stay up to date with all the latest news about Buenzli, follow us on Twitter, become a fan on Facebook or keep reading news on Pouet and Demoparty.net.
