So the music is from somewhere else, a full shader (which by my count is about one third of the demo) is from somewhere else, and the backgrounds are all AI generated...

The public thought it was a nice demo and reacted extatic.

Grandpa Gargaj deems generating AI pictures not as an art form,
hmm, getting decent input to start with, then tweaking the settings, the seeds and the prompts for hours and selecting the best results to evolve further is indeed NOT assembler coding...
Back in our day be wrote code with shizzle and stone tablets

Well...point taken about the "New way of doing demos".... however the end result is ugly.... sorry

How about copy-pasting shadertoy shaders and royalty-free music together, is that an artform?

I am glad this demo spurs some controversy :-) Is it ugly? Absolutely! Did I use royalty-free music because I suck at creating music? Offcourse! Did I lend a shader and modified it so it reacts to beats and checked the license? Oh yes.

The point is, although this demo is an ugly whacked-together monstrosity, it did entertain the public enough to gain second place. We are thrilled that we were able to pull this off in less than 6 hours (started coding at midnight, and submitted it at 6 am).

Thanks for all the voters and support, and let me share a fresh beer with you. See you at some next demoparty!

Also, thanks to the organisation of Nordlicht, I was thrilled to attend a real demoparty since long (three years). We had a blast. See you next year!

Knowing that everything that made this prod kinda enjoyable to watch during the compo was ripped from others unfortunately puts the entire production in a bad light for me, which is unfortunate because making a release is work - and I don't understand how someone would want to invest their time and effort into something... indecent.

Do not misquote me, I was talking about using AI for Grafix to be more than just Clicking 1 button and waiting for the result.
I did NEVER mention shaders, I did NEVER mention Music.

If you have to resort to changing the subject to win your argument I don't see you as worthy of having an adult discussion with.

So so friggin assets are all ripped, copied, and AI generated - which allowed you to produce a enjoyable collage through recombination and putting things in a context of your own? Maximum demoscene spirit.

I did though - it was the first thing I said.

How does it rank on the "I didn't do it" form?

? - Unreal demo engine
? - Additional code by Github Copilot
V - 2d art by Midjourney and Dall-E
V - Shaders copied from Shadertoy
V - Music ripped from an unknowing commercial drum and bass artist
? - Faked stamps to be returned back
? - Cracked by Skid Row
? - Minted as NFT

Only 3/8 so thumbs up

i don't mind CC0 content being used, but please make it something worth watching :P this was a mess! fastprod is fast i guess

While at it (only after you lecturing on CC0): You might also want to credit

* The VHS post-processing https://www.shadertoy.com/view/4dBGzK (Compare content.dat at offset 0xEEA8)
* The in-fragment font and sdf tech url=https://www.shadertoy.com/view/4s3XDn (Compare content.dat at offset 0x1D41)

Those have no license notice on Shadertoy, and are by default CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 (see https://www.shadertoy.com/terms), so you're required to attribute.

I'll stop at this point tho. I'm achieving nothing other than wasting my own time here, and I don't even think the prod is all too bad. I hated losing against it, but what can you do. The chickens were kinda cool.
