About Agora Road's Macintosh Cafe What is Agora Road?

I have worked hard to research the internet to find old ascii text files and bring them back to life from the early 1980s-1990s of the internet. They deal with death, hacking, scamming, crime, & everything that you cannot find elsewhere. I am Also a huge fan of Vaporware Artist and will post the only the best Vaporware tracks on this site. I also love the 1980s/90s of the internet and try to make this site as nostalgic as it could be.

ARCADE ADVENTURE VISION アーケード is from Torrelodones, Spain . This Album was released today on may 12, 2018. The track “Shopping Again” sounds like a mixture of Tribal drum beats and 80s smooth soul. I LOVE it.

It is my favorite song of the album. The overall Album is like a cool vaporwave soul.

Summer Hits vol. 1 by Vercetti || Future Funk || Vice City

Summer Hits Vol1 is made by Vercetti, a talented artist based in Argentina. The Album has a smooth future funk vibe to it. You will feel like traveling down the breeze of Miami Vice. It has a smooth Vice city sound. My favorite track would have to be Leaf Links (ft. SΔDИΣSS PЯIИCΣSS).

What is Vaporwave? What is Vaporwave?
Vaporwave is a subculture that had started emerging at around 2010, and has become more prominent in the early 2010's. The term originates from the term vaporware. It is considered a musical genre, as well as having a visual aesthetic. The genre has since developed and expanded, and the following is an attempt to describe "classic" vaporwave.

Characteristics
Vaporwave is characterized by appropriation, imitation and recontextualization of pop culture artifacts from the 80's and 90's. It has associations with the period's retrofuturism and cyberpunk. Visually, it is related to pop art, collage, and digital art1 but it is not limited to these. It tends to choose and deconstruct already kitschy and/or banal source material, usually associated with mass production2 , though it can choose any 80's and 90's pop culture artifact. The appropriation and imitation are done in a style that is deconstructive, recontextualizing the material and emphasizing artificial elements.

Recontextualization is done by using elements of the source material in ways other than their original intention3 . Emphasizing the artificiality and "medium-ness" (coming from a television, radio, a memory, etc.) of the source material is form of recontexualization and is almost always employed in Vaporwave4 along with other techqniues. Another common technique for deconstruction is emphasizing kitsch, creating caricaturial or hyper-real (or hyper-fake) versions of the source material5 .

These techniques, among others, give Vaporwave its crucial "meta" quality. In other words, Vaporwave is not a direct imitation of the past, but rather it is about the past; the experience and memory of the past. It is looking at the past through a certain lens.

In summary, Vaporwave:

Appropriates, imitates and recontextualizes pop culture artifacts from the 80's and 90's, typically kitschy and/or banal material.
Utilizes audio and visual techniques and manipulation to emphasize the medium's artificiality and medium-ness.
Here is a guide introducing Vaporwave essentials and where to download them.

1 Including net art, glitch art, and pixel art.


2 Its source material ranges from elevator music, corporate music and art, infomercials, video game music and graphics, early internet graphics and MIDI, and television and radio transmissions.

3 Such as mimicking MIDI instruments and using them in different ways from the source material or warping and distorting the source material.

4 Usually done by using audio/graphic/video techniques such as MIDI instruments and heavily synthesized instruments, a lo-fi aesthetic, VHS/tape distortion, glitch, surrealism, pitched up/down samples, awkward looping and copypasting, reverb and filtering to imitate tv/mall/radio speakers.

5 Using simple melodies, lo-fi and MIDI instruments, and repetitive structures are some of the techniques used in accentuating kitsch.

History and Development
Daniel Lopatin (as Chuck Person)'s 2010 release, Chuck Person's Eccojams Vol.1 and James Ferraro's 2011 release, Far Side Virtual are regarded as a catalyst for the genre - perhaps backgrounded by the 1980's revival that started to take root in the early 00's and maturing late in the decade. The genre would later on be solidified by Ramona Andra Xavier (as Vektroid) who also goes by aliases including Macintosh Plus, New Dreams Ltd, PrismCorp, Laserdisc Visions.

In 2013, the Vaporwave label Fortune 500 popularized the term "hypnagogic pop" to describe the kind of music they were releasing, which was a more rhythmic and musical and less experimental than previous vaporwave. Even later on, around 2014, the genre diffused, with vaporwave elements being mixed with elements from other genres, spawning genres including Vaportrap, Future Funk, and Oceangrunge. This post-vaporwave phase also includes the work of proto-vaporwave and vaporwave acts who have gone on to produce other work: such as Daniel Lopatin (as Oneohtrix Point Never), James Ferraro and Saint Pepsi.

What is Vaporwave Not?
Vaporwave has its own aesthetic, but it is easily confused with other movements. While definitions and identities are fluid, we will make an attempt to differentiate them nevertheless.

Musical Cousins
Most of these genres along with Vaporwave arguably rose from the 1980's revival that matured by the late 00's. Like Vaporwave, these genres imitate the music of the 80's and are both nostalgic and campy to a degree. However, what differentiates these from Vaporwave is Vaporwave's recontextualization of the pop culture. These genres tend to be clean, direct imitations of 80's music rather than deconstructed versions with manipulations that accentuate "medium-ness" (coming from a television, radio etc.); they don't quite have characteristic #2. Additionally, Vaporwave has a stronger association with mass production, commercial, and kitschy artifacts, using elevator music as a source material, for example.

Re: Introduce yourself! What cancelled sitcom best  describes your life?

Now that's going to be a tough one because I dont really watch sitcoms. But I would say a good canceled TV show that would describe my life is  "Malcom in The Middle" if you can call it a sitcom because I had some pretty rough uncles that I lived with and are about 2 to 3 years older than me. We would do dumb stuff and torture each other like in the show. and that i grew up poor

What does Vaporwave mean to you?
 What it means to me? It means good music haha

What subgenres are you most into?
In concerning to Vaporwave, I would say that Mallsoft and retrowave would be my favorite subgenres. and anything with a Miami feel to it.

How did you find out about this place?

I made it :)

What do you do for fun?

I like to swim, go to the gym and smoke some dank weed since I live in California  :D

Re: Introduce yourself!
Hi,

This forum was suggested to my by some of the folks over at 68kmla.org. I collect and restore vintage Macintosh and Apple computers. I am an IT pro for a living. I also have a blog about retro computers at http://www.retroadventures.net I grew up with a Commodore 64 as my first in-home computer, although I used Apple II and TRS-80 computers in school and then of course 486->Current PCs. My favorite vintage computer is my ROM01 IIgs. I have upgraded it with a 4mb dark ram card, a CFFA3000 (Compact Flash/USB hard drive) and a Uthernet II ethernet card in it. I am currently part of a team that is beta testing the latest run of Uthernet II cards.

Anyhow, my current collection of vintage computers and printers lists as follows (all the ones that have been restored and are working at least):
- Apple IIgs (ROM01)
- Apple //e Platinum
- Apple IIe
- Macintosh Powerbook 540c
- Macintosh Color Classic
- Macintosh SE
- Apple Laswerwriter Pro 630
- Apple ImageWriter II

(I have the following computers listed for sale, prefer local pickup from 98532. I may make a detailed post later, if such a thing is allowed here.)
- 20" iMac C2D
- 17" iMac C2D
- 17" iMac G4 1.25GHz
- 15" iMac G4 700MHz
Welcome to the Forum!
As you can see, this site is mostly about vaporwave but I am trying to build our vintage computer members up. Ive designed this forum to make it look like a system 6 macintosh SE and try to make it as close to it as possible. I own a Macintosh SE so i am really interested in vintage tech. Make sure to stick around I am always trying to improve it and get more like-minded members!
