There are little teasers to keep your eyes busy, but definite climaxes where the audience goes "ooh" and "ahh" and applauds.

That is actually exactly what they are. The demos are shown at demo parties projected on a big screen with an audience that oohs and aahhhs and applauds accordingly!

I love the demoscene

There are so many times that I wish I had lived in Europe, during the birth and early heyday of the demoscene. As it was, aside from a brief period serving in the military at an airbase in the UK, I lived in back-water little NOTHING towns. Getting to even a decent computer or gaming convention was simply beyond my budget, my time, etc. There was little demo activity in the US--certainly nothing compared to the widespread demo compos that were a train-ride away in Europe.

Even among the other engineers, I've been something of an oddball geek--fascinated with to-the-metal programming, and insane optimizations to squeeze the absolute maximum impossibility out of a piece of hardware.

Thanks for posting this stuff Mark!

Make me feel like im back in

Make me feel like im back in the early 90's Some of those Demo's where simply amazing.. There was one on WW II that was incredible. And matt your right, I really dont remeber any bad music from back in those days and the demo's.. I remebr thinking it was SO COOL that i could play a Wave when my Amiga booted.. I had Ren & stimpy.. DONT touch the red button! I think i oculd spend a few hours listening and looking at those old demos... nice trip back.

Ah, what great stuff. The music is just so great. As good as it is, it makes you wonder what wuld have been possible if the later Amigas had made the jump to 16-bit sound...
