@party 2020 goes to Eleven!

artisansasylumlogoforweb

It is our pleasure to invite you to @party 2020!

This is the 11th annual @party and we’re returning to Artisan’s Asylum in Somerville, MA USA. There will be three full days of scheduled programming from Friday June 12th through Sunday June 14th.

The room will have a permanently installed sound system and bigscreen comparable in size to the party system of the past seven years and you’re welcome to consume meals and refreshments at your computer place. You can’t sleep here though, so please make arrangements for a hotel or roomshare if you don’t intend to stay awake for three days straight.

Due to the volume of entries last year we have expanded the compo team and will be moving the concert to Friday night.  The rough schedule has already been posted on the schedule page.  Stay tuned for further announcements on performers, seminars, and additional program items!

Thank you, and we hope to see you at @party 2020!

Schedule Finalized!

The final schedule has been posted, including the following additional events:

Crafting Performance-Ready Synth Toys with Jim Susinno
(Friday June 7th, 8:00 PM)

Using the Arduino IDE and targeting the STMicroelectronics Nucleo family, it’s now possible to make medium-quality musical instruments almost from scratch, or from low-quality instruments. The Nucleo’s on-board DAC allows for dead silent operation when feeding into a PWM amplifier, and the FPU makes for easy, lazy programming that also works great on a desktop PC. With just a little bit of coding, crimping and soldering, you can finally make the sound your nerd soul sings.

@party Ten Year Retrospective
(Saturday June 8th, 3:00 PM)

Join us in celebrating 10 years of @party! We’ll tell stories and play demos from @parties past. We’ve got wireless mics to pass around the room, anybody who wants to share their own @party stories is welcome to chime in.

Oldskool Demoshow with Inverse Phase
(Saturday June 8th, 7:00 PM)

Inverse Phase is back with another curated selection of oldskool demos and plenty of information on what makes each production and platform unique. This presentation will be especially informative for attendees new to the demoscene, but even veteran sceners may learn something new, especially if they haven’t been keeping up with recent oldskool releases.
