    Date of birth: 15th May 1981


  • 1-How did your interest for computers start? Which year was that?

  • My parents bought me a C64 in 1989 or 1990 I *think*. I played a lot. Later
    they bought me a PC and even later I bought myself an Amiga.


  • 2-What machines did you previously have? What did you do with them?

  • Played a lot.


  • 3-For what specific reason did you end up making music rather than gfx, coding?

  • In my opinion coding is rather boring. I have been doing some gfx every now
    and then but not much. Even did one compopic! Finished last in the compo, if I
    remember right, hehehe.


  • 4-Which composing programs have you been using? Which one in particular?

  • Scream Tracker 3, Fast Tracker 2, Pro Tracker 2.3, Pro Tracker 4(?).
    Fast Tracker 2 in particular cause it simply rules.


  • 5-With which module did you feel you had reached your goal?

  • None. Newer stuff is of course better than older. Hopefully I will someday
    make some "real music" that'll reach that special goal.


  • 6-Is there a tune you would like not to remember? For what reason?

  • All of the stuff I did in 1994 :D


  • 7-In your opinion, what's the value of a music in a demo, game?

  • No idea (too lazy to answer ;)


  • 8-At present, are you still composing? For professional or leisure purposes?

  • Yep, every now and then but really, really rarely. The last "real" mod I
    finished was two years ago. I will probably release some MP3-stuff in the
    future under the name Superslacker. Or then, mayhaps not. Who knows.


  • 9-What do you think of today's pieces of music such as mpeg,wave,midi,etc...?

  • MP3 is good for you.


  • 10-Could you tell us some of your all times favourite tunes?

  • I could name some favourite mods.. Hmm..

    "Trans Atlantic" by Lizardking.
    "Suuntaviivat" by Dizzy.
    "Palle's Theme" by Jester.
    "My Stylers" by Scorpik.

    basicly everything by Yolk & Dune.


  • 11-Are you planning to make an audio cd with some of your music remastered?

  • Don't think so.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Well, yesterday I was listening to Ceebrolistics, Bob Marley, Cream, The Beatles and so on. I listen to a lot of stuff. From jazz to idm and from hiphop to waltz..


  • 13-What does/did the amiga/c64 scene give you?

  • I'm really more of a pc-scener. Amiga/c64 scene gave me a lot of good friends.


  • 14-Are you still active in the scene these days?

  • Kinda, yes, but I'm getting lazier.


  • 15-Anyone to greet? Anything left to say? Feel free...

  • Wuuhaa! Well, hmm, greets to Beathawk, El Higu, Pekka, Tempest, Unreal, Piglet,
    Whisker, Sombie, Drone, Droid, Adam, Shape, Kure, Deeq, Speedo, THG, Damaq &
    the rest of DSD, Aleks, TDA, Duncan, Shine, Leia, all in #pixel, #amigascne,
    #suomiscene, All in Haujobb, Damage, RNO, etc. I'm forgetting loads of people..
    Kisses to Mindflow/Triad! :)
