What's the demo scene like in the UK?

Is anyone here part of it?

I knew one lad in college who made chiptune stuff, he was partially deaf. I don't think that needs any further commentary.

This is the wrong board please repost in /beat/.

The demo scene that I think he's referring to isn't solely about music - it's about writing 'demos', to demonstrate ones coding prowess. These often feature music.

Didn't the demo scene die with the Amiga? I remember some of the old crews could do real magic with those little machines (you've actually just made me nostalgic for 'Jesus on Es' and one I can't quite remember the title of "[something] and sunflowers" maybe.

The demoscene is alive. Sometimes older platforms still get demos, like this one for the Megadrive:

Or this for the Amstrad CPC:

But perhaps the craziest are the PC ones that are size-limited. This demo, for instance, is 4KB:

To put into perspective just how tiny 4KB is - you could fit three hundred and sixty copies of this onto a single floppy disk. It's absolutely minuscule.

There's loads at pouet, something for almost every platform you could name:
