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

  • My interest for computers goes back a long way. I used to play c64 with my
    friends in the late 80s. Later on, things moved on to pc. I didn't get my
    own computer untill 95 though.

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

  • My first machine was an old 486 dx2 66mhz. First couple of years I was
    pretty much just playing games. Later on, in 97 I got ft2 from a classmate,
    and after that I was hooked :)

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

  • I'm not really sure. I didn't really know anyone who did anything but play games
    with their computers. As I said, I saw ft2 at a classmates place, and I was
    amazed. I loved the idea of making music. I also used to buy the old sceneish
    magazine tekno, where I got my first mods from. Dr Awesome even wrote a
    "tracking-manual" in the magazine.

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

  • Last 5 years I've been sticking to good old ft2. Last year I've been playing
    around remastering my songs in cooledit aswell. And lately I've started to
    learn fruityloops.

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

  • Hehe. Though question. I don't think I've ever had any goal. Or I suppose, in
    the start, I wished my music someday, would be respected. I don't really care
    if I've achieved that "goal" anymore. I'd rather be a respected as a person
    anyway :)

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

  • Ahahah. my first onehour-compo song probably. I hadn't been tracking for a long
    time at that time. And I sertainly couldn't track fast. I ended up with this
    really lousy song, which was totally screwed up. And then later on when people
    were voting, ofcourse they had to make fun of it :)

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

  • Hmm. value, as in how important it is? I think it's very important. not only in
    demos or games, but in anything, or anywhere. music creates atmosphere and
    emotions. I might be brainwashed by my years of composing, but, music is life,
    and life wouldn't be anything without it.

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

  • I'm still composing. not as much as I used to though. nothing professional
    though. it's still just for the fun of it :)

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

  • The formats? i'm not sure what there are to think of them? :D they're quite
    useful yes? heh

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

  • My all time favourites. hmm. that's a hard question. I like ALOT of music. and
    usually, if I really like a song, i'll listen to it on repeat for hours, untill
    i'm all sick of it :)

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

  • Heh. Doubt it

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Gah. another hard question :) as I said, I like alot of stuff. my favourite
    bands right now though, would be queens of the stone age, nirvana and beatles.
    Allthough, what I listen to, changes all back and forth.

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

  • Inspiration I suppose. I still love the sound of the songs from the old games
    I used to play as a kid.

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

  • Not as active as I would like to be. but I guess i'm still active yes.

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

  • Uhm. my friends and everyone I've been doing music with over the years.
    They hopefully know who they are :)
