    Group: Surprise!Productions, The Ravebusters

    Date of birth: 22. September 1981


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

  • It started in the late 80´s when my dad show me some sounddemos on the
    Commodore Amiga 1000. He also buyed the Ultimate Soundtracker in 1989, but
    he didnt use it. In 1992 he buyed a Amiga 2000 and give me his Amiga 1000.
    This was the start of all :)


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

  • I still have a C64II, a Amiga 1200 and the Amiga 1000 from my dad.
    I started composing with the Amiga 1000 in 1993 with the Soundtracker, and
    switched later to SoundFX1.3, and finally 1994 to ProTracker.


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

  • First i did tunes just for fun, and later for 2 intros for a reginal Disk selling
    group, but they were busted by the Police in 1996 (lol) and since then i only make
    tunes again just for fun and upped them later to modarchive.com. I still searching
    my old disks for my old tunes.


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

  • 1993 SoundTracker & SoundFX1.3
    1994 - 1996 ProTracker
    1996 - 2001 FastTracker 2.08 and ScreamTracker 2.21 (this was my lazyest time)
    2002 - 2006 (stopped tracking for 4 1/2 years)
    2006 - ???? MilkyTracker, ProTracker2.3d & StarTrekker1.3


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

  • hm, hard question.... I still like my tunes created for a Cream intro called
    "18 Years" on the Amiga. I didn´t like my old tunes from 1993 - 1996 (lol).


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

  • Yes, some of my old SoundFX tunes.... They sounds today eerie to me (totally detuned
    samples used)


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

  • It must be a good one!! A lazy tune in a action game didn´t reach the goal.
    And about demotunes.... Just listen to Laxity´s Desert Dream tunes - this is a good
    example of a demotune with a "golden goal" :)


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

  • Yes, i still composing Chiptunes for my groups "Surprise Productions" and
    "The Ravebusters". I have composed a so called "muzak" for a commercial.


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

  • I like MP3 and OGG, because its a standart to share/listen to audio & music.
    I still plan to convert some of my Chiptunes to MP3 and put it on a musician portal.


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

  • Yes:

    The Desert Dream Soundtrack by Laxity, Lotus 2 & 3 Game Soundtrack, Almost all SIDMon &
    FutureComposer tunes, Bluesong by Karsten Obarski (drilled in my head *g*),
    Space Debris by Captain and many more... :)


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

  • Yes, one day :)


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • I didn´t buy Audio CDs anymore, but i still like some 80´s stuff, like:
    Depeche Mode, Propaganda, Tangerine Dream, Jan Hammer, Giorgio Moroder and some
    early HipHop & Rap artists, like Public Enemy, Dr.Dre, RunDMC, Rockmaster Scott etc..


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

  • I still like to watch the old (and the new) demos, intros, cracktros etc... on my
    Amiga & C64.... I started on the Amiga and i die on it :)


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

  • Yes, atm im as musician in Surprise!Productions and The Ravebusters.


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

  • Greetz to all in S!P (special greetz to NuKe^SiP, daXX, CoRe, tEiS, druid, can, haddoc, BuLL^,
    ikstar pailes and Psycreator from m00ds plateau).
    And to the musicians:
    Chromag, u4ia, Laxity, dubmood, 4mat, heatbeat, Karsten Obarski, Chris Huelsbeck,
    Rob Hubbard, Frog^JPN (alcohol, aspirin *g*) and audiomonster... You changed my life :)
