Call me - but only between 6 and 8 pm, because my mum is very angry when the phone is ringing without stop... ;))) Those were the days... and this guy was sitting in Hungary!

As others already noted - same for me: one of the first _MEGA_ demos I remember. Awesome for the time.

This demo is the one that sticks out as most memorable for me. I specifically remember loving the music and the raster bars. The drummer part is very memorable also. Great stuff.

Haven't seen this before. Pretty nice megademo. For '88, it's awesome. People must have been thrilled :)
9/10 (could have been a bit more inventive)

the guy playing drums is so cool: synchronized audio with the guy's hands. And also the drum the guy beats on changes accoring to the played drum.

I remember this demo very well. Even after all these years it's stuck in my mind. Sadly it doesn't seem to work under winvice, so I'll have to check it out on a real c64 again.

Oswald, if I'm not completely mistaken (didn't look at the code), this is a plain one-loop-sample repeated over and over again. We once decided not to add these to HVSC.
