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

  • Somewhere in the mid 80's, when I changed my Atari xl 800 (from the 70's) to the 8086 XT And had to learn new OS and so on :D


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

  • Atari xl 800 - games. Simple basic programming, word processing, gfx
    PC XT 8086 , 286, 386, 586 (Pentium) AMD Athalon 1,400, AMD Athalon 2,400
    Used to do graphics, compose music, word processing, word sheets hmm study


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

  • Donno, maybe because I used to have a jazz band, played trombone, drums, trumpet, flutes and so on, and that made me to decide this way. Btw coding was boring for me :D


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

  • Modedit, impulse tracker, fast tracker, scream tracker, modplug tracker and some small ones and not very known I think


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

  • I reached my goal with those ones: Cyber Chat (xtigma release), 666 MayDay call (xtigma release), Can We Dream (xtigma/wij demos), Cool Funk [Xtigma/Wij demos)
    Groove (Grave) Land [Wij Demos/Xtigma) and my trilogy under/for TRSI:
    Year 2001, welcomes, 3 tricks , and some more :D


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

  • Hmm some in BNC Group were my real first tries with any module tracker ever


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

  • It is a nice thing, gives you the "Feeling" of the game, interests and so on


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

  • Yeah leisure…well I am about to get to it back.. took some break after I lost some of the modules since the 80's I had and there were no back ups for them


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

  • it is nice to have them around. I like music and I love finding those from time to time over the internet.


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

  • Can not remember, honestly, but there a lot of them


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

  • Maybe, don't think so..wanted to have a commercial audio cd for some of my modules which were lost in a hdd crash so don't now for now..


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Dream Theatre, Blind Guardian and other rock/metal and pop stuff


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

  • A lot of nice games and a nice pleasure. Did not have them in my own house but at friends's houses :D


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

  • Yes, in CoolPHat + Hugi DiskMagazine and help out other teams


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

  • Yeah all current and EX CoolPHat Members, Ex XTIGMA, EX BNC GROUP, EX WIJ DEMOS and the whole demo-art sceners out there. Keep doing your stuff and loving it. We all know it wont last for ever and there're only hundreds doing this
