Say some words about yourself: handle, groups
Hi. My handle is dino of 5711. My interest in the demoscene began 2001, when someone showed me fr-08: .the .product by farbrausch. It got my full attention and I got fascinated by the “art form” called demo. It took me a few years until I discovered the community behind it and physically joined. Until today I still dream of doing a demo, but I’m too lazy to finish something. Therefore I adore the scene for their pure love and creativity. I would describe myself best as “Demoscene Fanboy”.
When and where was the first Evoke you visited?
2006! It was my first demoparty and I can say that going to evoke was the best decision I ever made.
When did you join the organizing team?
What made you join the organizing team?
I’m not good in producing content. Organizing evoke is the love I can give back to the people making great productions all the time.
What is your job inside the organizing team?
I started doing infodesk shifts and evolved from that position, picking up more and more responsibilities on my way. Today infodesk shifts is one thing I don’t do anymore. I still write the shift-plan and see if we can get enough people to fill all spots. On party I coordinate the build-up and tear-down, motivate people to get everything running and try to keep a good overview on our time management. Thankfully years of experience from the crew help a lot. Since 2015 I’m also the host of evoke, announcing compos or slight delays. Besides that I try to open the event with a handpicked list of demos.
Which compo do you enjoy watching the most?
I’m a newschool fucker. I go for PC Intro and Demo.
Is there a demo/intro/... released at Evoke you love the most?
Not particular released at evoke, but the invitation “party heart” by 5711. It more or less set a perfect mood to one of my favourite evoke so far. With releases like “overdrive” and “calcifer” 2013 became the party with a heart!
What would be the photo to describe Evoke for you?
Standing on stage with the whole organizing crew. Getting cheered on by all the visitors. That’s the moment I feel in peace and know that all the stress and lack of sleep was worth it.
Do you have a favourite shirt from Evoke?
Hard to say. The train of 2006 is special for me, because it was my first. But I would go for the “planet” of 2012, it’s the most timeless shirt.
What would be your most memorable moment at Evoke?
I had the luck sitting next to moqui at my first evoke. From that point onwards it became a special friendship <3
Besides Evoke, what is your next favorite demoparty?
For me it’s TRSAC in Denmark. I like to describe it in 2 words: “controlled escalation”! Having the beer and schnapps break right before the main compo starts.
Three words that decribe Evoke best?
Family, Style & Sunshine
Is there anything else that you always wanted to say about Evoke?
I’m glad and proud to be part of this team. Evoke is something special to me and I would like to show it to everyone who hasn’t visited evoke so far.
