Demoscene Exposed: Micro And Macro Ways Through The Maze

A session at Revision 2013

  • indica

Friday 29th March, 2013

6:00pm to 7:00pm (CET)

As a digital subculture conditioned at a variety of levels from coding and encoding graphics on display devices to using algorithms to create music between an abundance of protocols for compression, the demoscene seems to be a huge maze to non-scene-participants. Artifacts and relevant context information are widely spread over the Internet and this culture uses its own grown language. Existing web-based platforms only allow a macro view on demoscene productions, groups and events. This contribution provides a Semantic Web approach as a next generation perspective for the demoscene to make the maze of information more public, accessible and visible. An ontology-based framework allows integration, presentation, search and sharing of data from diverse sources. Goal is to offer a micro view on demoscene materials by the example of the Atari VCS platform and Atari's Video Music.
