Bits From Behind the Iron Curtain


Before there was Flash, there was C++. Before there was, there was the demo scene. Intended as short trailers for programmers' wares, demos rapidly became respected as the means for programmers to show off their creativity and mastery of code. Zdeno Hlinka is a young programmer from Slovakia who never forgot his roots as a demo producer. His creations are a brilliant mix of visuals and experimental electronic music. He has an archive of his work to download here, ranging from early rave demos from the early 90's to more avant garde recent projects. 'Metamorf' and 'Different Engine' are likely masterpieces of the medium. --Eryk Salvaggio
