News in August 2013
Buenzli 22 (aka Demodays 2013) happened this weekend, and here's a first batch of pictures. Enjoy!
We had intense three days of party - it was a really great weekend, for both our visitors and the organizer. We thank everybody for participating, watching, helping and enjoying Demodays 2013! We thank our partners for making the event possible. And we are happy about all your positive and constructive feedback. Many of you were in Olten, some of you watched our live stream: For all of you and for everybody else, we have created an After-the-Party page containing a growing amount of photos and videos and of course all the releases and results.
Check out the first round of pics from Ass...Boozembly 2013, as provided by Haohmaru
If you're coming to the Demodays by car, please note they're built a completly new street to the party place. When coming from the highway A1, once you're in Olten, use the first roundabout to go left, trough the tunnel and then right, all the way down to the SchÃ¼tzenmatte. Generally follow the signs to "Zentrum" and/or "SchÃ¼tzenmatte". There's no need to go trough all the city anymore, as in the previous years. See you soon!
Thanks to our partner Viprinet and VTX we will have a livestream available again! Get the Demodays into your living room. Of course, being at the party place is still the only real option, where else do you get the full package of scene fun? So: If you have the chance to show up, you better do! We will announce the URL for the livestream once it's all set up and available.

Evoke 2013 is history! 500 people showed up and saw some of the most remarkable compos in EvokeÂ´s history. Together with the wonderful weather (though the wasps really sucked), nice dj & vj sets, interesting seminars & kids corner it became a really greatÂ atmosphere.Â
A big thank you to everyone who made this possible. We are still completely blown away! Thanks!
Evoke 2013 ended yesterday and here are the first pictures, provided by yours truly.
The first evening of this yearÂ´s Evoke is already over.
For those who cannot attend: try to get the party feeling at Scenesat live broadcast! In addition there are tags on Twitter, Vine, Instagram and Flickr where people are constantly posting impressions from the party.Â
In addition here are some moving pictures from the buildup (filmed by a quadrocopter):
Hey! And consider joining (again) us next year!
We are very proud to announce that for the first time ever Rovio Entertainment will sponsor Evoke. If you don't know the name Rovio yet, you for sure know their main brand: it's Angry Birds! The entertainment company from Finland will support the new "Kid's Corner" at Evoke, the perfect place for your kids, young sceners and every oldskool scener who is still young at heart. The Kid's Corner's program ranges from challenging handicrafts like Origami to LED circuit set-ups and first computer programming tasks. Content-wise it will be accustomed by several initiatives you might have heard of:
Hans-Werner Guth from Dingfabrik KÃ¶ln e.V. offers an Origami workshop. From aerodynamical paper plane to complex sculptures you can put your analogue creativity to a test.
Elisabeth Wegner from Mehreinfach and Jan Kus from Railslove GmbH are involved in the non-profit organization CoderDojo which imparts knowledge about technology and it's creative applications in a playful, hands-on way. They will offer workshops about LEDs, hacking and coding.
But what would a real Kid's Corner be without Angry Birds? Rovio offers fun activity books and toys from the "Angry Birds" universe, as well as episodes of "Angry Birds Toons", the bite-size cartoon available on select TV networks as well as in the Angry Birds games on iOS and Android.
On top, our other new sponsor Carlsen Verlag contributes a selection of their âPixiâ books, famous since 1954.

Still made an interactive version of "Square" Â using a LEAP-Motion controller. Pixtur will present on stage how to interact with the demo. You can easily navigate the camera inside the running animation and adjust the parameters of the fractal.Â
Afterwards there is the chance for YOU to play around with it.
With Carlsen Verlag we are happy to present a new sponsor for Evoke. The publishing house is specialized in comic books and has a direct connection to the demoscene. The first comic from Helge^Haujobb was just released by Carlsen this summer: "Alisik". You can achieve several copies by participating in our graphics compos. On top we will sell a limited amount at the infodesk; as always every single Cent of profit will be payed out as price money.
Alisik is developed by Helge together with the German writer Hubertus Rufledt. It tells the story about a 16-year-old girl who dies, but doesnât leave the world completely. She is trapped between life and death without having any memories about her previous existence. Soon she realizes that she didnât die from natural circumstances, so she is eager to gain information about her destiny.Â
Gloomy and beautiful illustrations will take you on a journey with eccentric postmortals, an endangered graveyard and a heartwarming lovestory. And for sure you will recognize several motives from Helge's demoscene productions.
There is a new bus line coming directly from "KÃ¶ln Messe/Deutz" (long-distance train station) to the party place.
Take the line 150 (direction "Heinrich-BÃ¼tzler-StraÃe") exit at the stop "Christian-SÃ¼nner-StraÃe" right in front of the Abenteuerhallen. The bus leaves every 30 min and you only have to get a short trip ticket (Kurzstrecke), which costs 1,90â¬.
In for a tasty steak, a yummy sausage? With some luck, we'll get a sunny weekend (unlike last year) for a proper barbecue. Whether the sun will be shining or not - we'll have a public grill available, free for everybody to use. And for the more technically oriented visitors, we have a brand new Burger Construction Kit offering. Our Â«Buenzli BistroÂ» sells meat (until we're out of stock) for low & fair prices. Besides that we have revamped our menue offerings and pizza styles.
Are you going to evoke? Are you into VJing? Do you want to support our DJs live at the outside area? If you just answered all questions with "Yes!" please contact us through our contact form.Â If possible send us some nice shots of your previous work. We would be thankful for your support.
