The Party '91

From ExoticA

The Party 1991 was a demo party.

26-28.12  The Party 1991 (
TP91 was held at MesseCenteret in Aars, Denmark by The Silents, Anarchy and
Crystal. In reality, main organizers were Stripe, Trix/Anarchy, Seen and
Paleface/Alliance Design. 700 people had booked in advance, 1000 were
expected, and nearly 1300 (1252) turned up - making this the biggest party
held so far! The entrance fee was 100DKR. The party was held in two halls of
the same size; one for the party and one for people who wanted to sleep. The
infoscreen was genlocked onto MTV, and also TV-transmitted so that everyone
with a TV and a basic antenna could watch it. The general feeling was that
the party was very well organized, and it was undoutedly a major success!
Drinking and smoking was allowed, but only beer - and only tobacco :) The
fire alarm was started on the night between the 26th and the 27th, causing
much irritation among the organizers, who would have to pay a fee for the
fire brigade rushing out on a false alarm! There were a few surprise
competitions planned, but they were all cancelled except for the Kick Off
one. This was also the year of the premiere for the legendary video demo
"Global Trash II" from Jesper Kyd and Michael Balle. Productions with
greetingsscrollers were not allowed in the competitions... perhaps a rule
that SHOULD have become the standard? =) No c64 competitions were actually
planned, but after pressure from the c64 groups at the party, one was held
anyway! =) Bonzai arranged it, and took some heat from the other groups for
decreasing the prices rather dramatically - from $1000 to 1500DKR ($240) for
first prize, and from $500 to 500DKR ($80) for second!
  26 demos were shown in the amiga demo competition on saturday morning. 41
pictures was shown in the graphics competition; 80 pieces of music were
handed in for the music competition, but only 30 were played. Controversy
over 'is Odyssey a better demo than Hardwired?' raged in the diskmags for
months... :)
