This is a party-coded executable gfx for the Demodays 2013 surprise compo. The topic was “This app can’t open. The screen resolution is too low for ‘Music’ to run.” Not having a Windows 8 tablet, I started wondering just how low-res your computing device had to be to justify such an error… I aimed for a 1K, but stopped 96 byte short, not wanting to cut features nor converting everything to assembler. Here’s the executable: AndTheSoundcardIsntGreatEither_by_Fulcrum

This is our 1K entry for Assembly 2013. It placed 5th out of 13 entries. I had a lot of fun making this.
WARNING: for the party version, you need a very fast graphics card and vsync enabled to see (and hear) this intro correctly. It should run about 68 seconds.

Here is our contribution to the 4K intro compo at Assembly 2012. It’s been polished quite a bit more than the last 2 contributions. Note that the party version at Assembly contained some bugs that have been fixed here.

You can also watch a youtube version here, but notice that the quality isn’t remotely as good as the realtime visuals.

At Revision 2012, I took part in the Lightning Seminars, a new category of seminars that take only 4 to 8 minutes, including Q&A. Since I had trouble keeping my talk in that short a timeframe, I had to cut a few slides, and postpone questions until after the other talks.
I promised to make a longer version of my slides available here, so you can download them here:
If this helps you to implement cone marching in your own demos or intros, a greeting would be appreciated.

This is a song I’ve been working on ever since I switched to Renoise, but the last components didn’t really fall into place until very recently. It’s a trance tune with some influences from the goa trance scene (though far more western). I had a lot of fun with it and it’s been a rewarding project. But there is such a thing as hanging around too long. So this past weekend, I went through and wrapped it up. Check it out, I think you’ll like it.
Meanwhile, Renoise 2.8 just came out with a bunch of new features. And here I am with already a half dozen ideas in my mind.
