Echtzeit – Digitale Kultur

Welcome to Echtzeit – Digitale Kultur. We are a non profit association supporting all things demoscene in Switzerland. The demoscene is a digital culture and community creating digital arts often represented by computer generated animations running in realtime (hence the name Echtzeit, which is German for realtime). Our association organizes festivals (so called demoparties) and meetups and runs channels for communication and collaboration. We team up with similar organization from all over the world.

We are the organization behind traditional demoscene events like Buenzli – Swiss Demoscene Festival or Demodays and Demonights. In 2021 we launched MountainBytes, an all new Swiss demoparty.
