Music is about emotions. We at starfrosch <3 videos. Long, short, queer, artistic, moving videos. That's why we were thinking about how to show you the best Creative Commons music videos.

#ccvideo starfrosch TV

First of all we tried to create starfrosch TV for you. We magically check the last 200 played tracks from starfrosch Radio and fire up a Youtube search and display you the found video. You can ZZzzap and skip forward to the next video. The result is not too exciting. To be honest, most of the videos are slideshows.

#ccvideo Playlist on Youtube

This lead us to a hand compiled real all ##music #ccvideo playlist on Youtube. We have compiled about 50 #ccvideo, which are quite entertaining and emotional. We love the result. We teamed up with cctrax.com, who helps us to compile the playlist. We will constantly add the latest #ccvideo to this playlist. If you miss a video, tweet us.

The Buenzli Reboot Party – Impressions

kus Blog, Fun, News, Video

Last saturday there was the Buenzli Reboot party, a retrospective of the last 20 years of demos coded by sceners. For those not familiar with the demoscene, that’s where short visual programs are coded as a competition. It’s a specialized form of computer art driven by reputation. The Buenzli or Demodays is a yearly gathering of 50-100 coders who participate in this Hackathon you would say nowadays.

The Buenzli invitation from 2011

The Buenzli Reboot party was organized by Echtzeit and soda.camp with a team including starfrosch, and presented by Oleg Lavrovsky and JΓΆrg Berkel.

The demoscene is an amazing pool of digital creativity and will be hopefully also part of the crowdfunded MuDA, the Museum of Digital art in Zurich.

Demos initially where Cracktros, a short commercial at the beginning of every cracked program. There are still active cracking groups like Razor 1911 you might know from serial generators. Most of the demoscene split from the cracking scene and codes independently demos as an art form.

Almost every demo is underlaid with sound. This is where the Netlabel idea initially was born, out of the demoscene. There are still lots of Netlabel sounds archived on Scene.org. Netlabels very fast adopted the Creative Commons licenses and still contribute to the Free Music scene. That’s our connections to the scenes: Demo sounds, Netlabels, Creative Commons and Freedom.

The Buenzli Reboot party took place in a vintage cinema in Berne. The cinema contains a huge collection of analog projectors. In this inspiring atmosphere Oleg showed and explained us the demo collection from over 20 years. The obligatory geek and nerdy beverage and food was: Pizza and beer.

Listen to a radio broadcast from radio RaBe about the Buenzli Reboot party. It’s in Swiss German, even if you don’t understand it, you maybe love how it sounds like.

We hope you have enjoyed the show as much as we did. Here are the one, two, three youtube playlists of all shown demos.
