is a group of people mainly from europe
participating in various art disciplines like demos, music, textmode art,
graphics design, graffiti and alike. Black Maiden
was founded in 1985 by
a cracking group on the amstrad cpc. Their interest in graphics grew and after
doing pixel and game artwork on the atari they moved on to the pc, where they
discovered the textmode world of ansi and ascii.
During the rise of the european
ansiscene in the mid 90s, Black Maiden
became well known and respected in the
international textmode art scene. Several influential and well known artists
(among those: konami, Noize
) released their work in
the so called bmbooks.
Through the fade of ansi in the late 90s Black Maiden
shifted their focus to the
demo and music scene. Besides releasing, the
members are organizing Evoke
currently second largest demo party in Germany and participating in
demoscene outreach related activities through
Digitale Kultur e.V.
Other Black Maiden
members are constantly producing music or are involved in many
creative scene- and non-scene-disciplines.
