Remix Culture And Digital Experimenting In The Demoscene

A session at Assembly Summer 2011

Thursday 4th August, 2011

8:00pm to 8:45pm (HMT)

For this presentation i'm interested in exposing the grey area between the creative versus the technical side of the demoscene, and how they arent necessarily opposed. I plan to focus the presentation on some aspects of the remix culture and how it's perceived within the demoscene. I also plan to cover some aspects relating to copyright issues and the free culture movement: how the demoscene started from piracy and ended up converted into some sort of libertarian culture with unwritten rules of lame versus cool for what is an acceptable reuse / reappropriation of material, even before creative commons were invented or the copyright piracy hunt was instated by the MAFIAA.
