What's Silvester?

It's an online New Year's party for the demoscene. People will make demos, music, and art, and we're going to show them at the party, on New Year's Eve. We hope you will join us, and maybe even make something! The party itself will be hosted on our Field-FX Twitch stream, so if you are missing out on the partying this year, and you want to hang out with the lovely people of the demoscene, come and join us!

Is this what Field-FX is about?

No! Field-FX is a demoparty in a field! The next one will be at EMF Camp 2022, and we are hoping that it can be in person. But right now our winter partying plans have been disrupted, and we want to kick out the jams!

If you've never encountered the demoscene before, the wikipedia article is a good introduction.
