Evoke 2008, 31st Jul 08

Entrance fee

After more than six years with a constant (or even falling) entrance fee we had to raise it up to 30 Euro. A massive increase of cost (you might have heard the rumours) forced us to do so. We are aware that this is a whopping 50% increase, still Evoke is a pretty inexpensive event with it's own party (Evoke Tracks that is) and some additional features to be announced within the next days. You will definitely not regret your travel to Cologne. Promised!

Competition PC specifications

Today, we have announced the specifications of our competition PC. As promised, it will be a pretty powerful machine. The detail specifications are available on our competition page. You think it looks like a Nvidia Demokit PC? You’re right, it is one. For competition entries that are not intended to run on PC hardware with Windows, you are asked to bring your own hardware with you - just as we did it in the past few years.

Buenzli & Evoke Combined Ticket

August 2008 - time for two traditional SwissGerman demoparties: Just as in the previous few years, Evoke and Buenzli are supporting double-party-visitors, demoscene-summer-trippers and i-can’t-get-enough sceners with a combined ticket. Evoke takes place just one week before Buenzli and is the place where you can buy our doubletrouble tickets which are then valid for Buenzli, too. The best thing about it: You get a discount on the regular entrance fee of both parties: The combined ticket is available for EUR 43.-.

How it works: At the Evoke entrance desk, you ask for the combined ticket instead of the regular Evoke ticket. One week later, at Buenzli, you show your ticket (which has a unique code printed on it) together with the Evoke bracelet and you’re in.

Alternative Party 2008, 22nd Jul 08

Front 242 at Alternative Party 2008!

The Belgian masters of Electronic Body Music - Front 242 - will give a concert on Friday evening 24th October at Alternative Party 2008! They will play an intelligent, dancable set of inspiring pieces of soundscapes with a strong physical presence. Front 242 have used both Atari and Amiga in their music and video work and they are very excited about the possibility to give a show at a demoparty and to meet the demoscene people. Punish your Machine!

travelling, lifts and hotels

Within the last days we added quite a lot of information: you may now add your offer for a trip (some seats left in your car, anyone?). Or add a seek for a trip. We updated the hotel page (with a camping site) and added all those locations to our google map. And finally we fixed some links. But after all: it's still the same location as last year ;)

Art Exhibitions at Buenzli

This year, we prepare a fine new thing for our visitor: Buenzli 17 will not only be a demoparty, but also feature a mini art exhibition. The exhibition consists of two areas, one featuring paintings and home made trash art on the topic of airplanes. The other area will contain a musical experience object called “Wechselsaiting” - a real time real life sound synthesis curtain. Read more about “Wechselsaiting” on the news pages of “Echtzeit - Digitale Kultur”. These art areas aim to extend the experience of Buenzli 17 and will, last but not least, increase the attractivity of the entrance hall. Be sure to check that awesome stuff out!

demoscene.tv covering evoke

All you lazy sceners that rather stay at home than visiting demoparties rejoice! Demoscene.tv is again covering all the important parts (at least what you guys seem to think is important (the real party...)). They will provide a live stream from Cologne in the usual quality. So if you can't make it, or don't want to move away from the couch, tune in on demoscene.tv to see the releases of Evoke - live!

Stream Five, 10th Jul 08

Website launched with info on new competitions

We've finally got the new stream party website online. Parts of it, such as the intranet, are still under construction but there's at least a ton of info on the compos. Most of the competitions are pretty much the same as before but we're also trying out some new things this time. The demo compo has been split into high-end and low-end demo compos, the 4k intro compo is now an "up to 4k" intro compo and a new spoken word compo has been added.

ANSI/ASCII competition

We just have decided to have another ANSI/ASCII competition this year - and it’s even “official” now. The compo rules are available at our competition page. This competition is open to remote entries sent in by email (though there are no prizes for remote entries planned). Get your keyboard started and show the world that ANSI and ASCII art is not obsolete at all!

demoscene.tv broadcasting from Buenzli 17

The strong partnership between Buenzli and demoscene.tv enters a new year. Demoscene.tv will broadcast all three days of Buenzli action down to the computer screens of those who stayed at home. As usual, this service is no proper substitute for not coming to the party. You better come to Buenzli 17 and be part of the live stream.

Demoscene.tv has been broadcasting from Buuenzli since quite a few years. Check their large archive on productions released at Buenzli, shows recorded at Buenzli and specials being unique to Buenzli.

The Cologne City Low Emission Zone

As some of you were already anxious about what they read about the green zone in Cologne we prepared an information page about that topic. With some good news: you will (most probably) not need a sticker to travel to Evoke!

Buenzli 17, 3rd Jul 08

Competition rules available

Have you already started your entry for the Buenzli 17 competitions? Now, the matching competition rules are available on our competition page. We have not changed them much - the most remarkable fact is the newly supported 1024x768 resolution and a new upper size limit for the demo competition. Also, please note that we will add one or two additional categories in the next days: yes, we have invented new competitions for you. The old Buenzli traditionals like Procedural 4k Graphics, OHP, Open Game Development and Alternative Demo are still among the list. The competition PC specifications will also be added in a few days.

It took us even a month later than last year to launch the website. We are sorry. Will add more content within the next days. Until then register and browse the updated compo rules and travelling information.
