The psychedelic computer demos collection

23 Apr

For its 3rd birthday the DPV is featuring a series of psychedelic videos specials which will run between the 22 and the 28 of April 2013. Stay tuned for more of our psychedelic specials.

Back in the early 1980s software pirate groups started to incorporate audiovisual introductions into their cracked releases. The intros evolved into a form of art, combining code wizardry with music and graphics. With the forming of groups and organizing of competitions, the demoscene was born.

Coders today can either use powerful modern hardware and GPU effects or milk vintage hardware for all its worth.

There has been a strong current of psychedelic visionary demos in the scene throughout its history. The following videos provide a glimpse into this pulsating stream of imagination.


Spaceballs: State of the Art (1992)

flo: f.22 (2013)

Farbrausch: rove (fr-043) (2010)

Akronyme Analogiker: Hartverdrahtet (2012)

ASD: Electric Bullet (2010)

United Force & Digital Dynamite: The golden path (2009)

Farbrausch: palindromeda suger (fr-minus-012) (2001)

Farbrausch: theta (fr038) (2004)

Farbrausch & Neuro: Masagin (2008)

TBC: Traceless (2012)

MFX: Deities (2006)

Synesthetics: Lucy in the Sky with Deities (remix of MFX’s deities) (2007)

Dual Crew & Shining – 2cb (a.k.a. 4 – bromo – 2,5 – dimethoxyphenethylamine) (1998)

Soviet countries had their own scene starting in the late 1980s Poland and Czechoslovakia. The ZX Spectrum clone Pentagon was a popular platform. Here are some examples from the 2000s:

The Path by Cyberpunks Unity & Inward (Rus), 2004.

Mescaline Synesthesia by deMarche (Rus), 2009.

DPV loves a nice Farbrausch production. If your graphics card is able to handle it, go ahead and run the demo yourself.

Epilepsy warning! Although I don’t know why anyone with epilepsy would want to read this blog. Technically, there is nothing wrong with the soundtrack, but I’m not sure about the composer’s mind.
