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

  • my friend had a C-64. I decided to get C-128.

    1984( I really don´t remember)


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

  • Didn´t have any before C-128.


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

  • Well. I really hated music of 80´s. The music of C-64 and was the only
    music I could listen. Also C-64 and later AMIGA gave me a possibility to
    create a musical environment of my own.


  • 4-Which composing programs have you been using?

  • Frankly, I don´t remember the programs I used in C-64- environment. All
    my AMIGA-tracks are done with Soundtracker or Noisetracker.


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

  • Every module that amused me.


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

  • I don't remember.

    Ask Freud.


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

  • well, my opinion is that music was the only element which gave some sense
    to demos. In games, music has lots of different kind of functions. It is
    the games designer who had to deside how much importance music in a game
    should have. In any case it is an important element.


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

  • Yeah. I do miracles with Propellerhead´s Rebirt. I´m also involved in one
    or two studio-projects like CNCD:s Harmaa Vyöhyke and a jazzy D&B-project.
     
    Professional & leisure.

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

  • Hard to say... in mpeg-format there´s a great deal of musical styles
    available. I think that´s a good thing.


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

  • too much to tell. sorry.


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

  • No.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Nowadays I avoid to listen music made by people.


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

  • memories, skills, relations, a lot.


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

  • No. I desided to retire since Assembly´95. Too much jazz.


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

  • greetings to CNCD, Katastro.fi, Byterapers and Complex.

    Don´t underestimate the force of the dark side.
