    C64 demos, meaning Commodore 64 demos. To this day people create music using Commodore 64’s, old Nintendos, Game Boys, or any other old computer systems. What they then used to do was then create graphics to go along with the music and then “demo” them.

    For an example of the type of music that I’m talking about, check out
