Evoke 2012 is over

A really great birthday party is over. Some even called it one of the best Evoke editions in history. And probably they are just right!

Thanks a lot to those who made this possible: everyone in the Evoke organizing team, our partners, the live acts, seminar speakers and last but not least: you! 

Just like the last years we are assembling a after party round up page where you can find results, releases, photos and reports. Contact us if something great should be missing.

See you in 2013. And at all the great other demoparties around!

Seminar on a Movidius Myriad SDK

We managed to find another great speaker for Evoke! Conor Mac Aoidh will give it Sunday at 10:30. He will talk about writing self-contained 4k-like Demos on the Movidius Myriad platform leveraging the processing power of the 8-core SHAVE GPU/DSP processor. Covers real-time audio synthesizing and writing graphics with a 2D rasterization library.

Headup Games

Headup Games already is the coolest game publisher in the whole industry. You might know them from their worldwide App Store hit "Bridge Constructor" on iOS or you might know them from indie developer jewels like Q.U.B.E, Limbo, Super Meat Boy that they have published.

But Headup Games became even cooler: they decided to sponsor Evoke. To top that of with even more coolness, they also helped us to bring Chris Hülsbeck to Evoke.

Thanks Headup Games. You guys are supporting us in more ways than we could have asked for.

Projection Mapping by Dingfabrik

Cologne fab lab Dingfabrik (which will also house the unofficial pre-party) will be present at Evoke to show a large object: on a 3x3x3 meter surface they will do "projection mapping" using two video projectors. The projectors will display animated videos on the sculpture. The installation is interactive: visitors are able to upload their own videos to be shown.

In addition there will be a information booth informing about Dingfabrik.

Why members of copyright collectives are not allowed

As one of the only demopartys we explicitly disallow GEMA members (and those in other international copyright collectives) from taking part in our competitions. After a really serious incident last year (where we faced a fee by GEMA that would have threatened Evoke´s future) we have written down some words why we do not allow this. Long story short: it would cost us some 4500 Euro we do not have.

DG-i brings back the fruit bowl (and the bbq)

We are very happy that DG-i once again decided to sponsor Evoke.

And this year they will not only bring back the DG-i BBQ with enough free sausages for everyone. They will also revive an old but lost tradition: the fruit bowl. You can expect to find fresh fruits like apples, pears and bananas right at any time at the info desk at the entrance. 

Thank you very much DG-i.

Hülsbeck, Richter & Xerxes at Evoke Seminars

This year´s Evoke seminar area feature some really outstanding speakers.

Xerxes will show a general introduction to Renoise. And he will probably find some time to show you some nice tricks.

Tobias Richter will look back at the start of his career. On his first steps on the Amiga, using DPaint, Videoscape and Reflections - a presentation of some of the creations from back then...

As a special guest we will have of the best known names in early German Amiga and C64-generation music: Chris Hülsbeck. He is going to be interviewed by Ziphoid.

All those seminars are going to happen on Saturday. Check with the timetable, so you do not miss them!

Combined ticket with Demodays

Attention, party hoppers: This year's Summer-parties Demodays and Evoke are back with the combined ticket! Save 5 bucks with the ticket that's valid for both parties. Evoke is taking place in Cologne (10-12 August) and the Demodays start off three weeks later in Olten (31 August to 2 September).

If you're ready for the experience, start at the entrance of Evoke by mentioning you want to buy the combined ticket, have your cash ready and tell your name. Three weeks later, at the Demodays info desk, you show your Evoke bracelet + the ticket and you're in. Thats it!

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

How to get to Evoke and where to stay

For the regular Evoke visitor most of the following information is probably well known already. Four years in the same location and you can nearly call it home game.

For all the others here is information on how to reach AbenteuerhallenKalk by plane, car, train and busses.

If you don´t want to drive all the way to Evoke alone: why not add your free seat to our lift database? Use the same form when you are seeking a lift to the party.

For those of you who do not want to sleep at the party place we gathered a list of nice hotels around the location. If you happen to have a tip from the last years: tell us so that we can add another nice accomendation.
