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

  • It had really started with C64 in 1982 i think, but i’ve got some memories before. C64 was the start, just magical…


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

  • I was a little kid gamer ?


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

  • I dont know. Code appeared to me so complicate, and GFX laborious. Soundtracker modules were the most closer thing to me…


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

  • I made some chiptunes trials on the C64 with Sonix, after listening to the game « One man and his droid ». On the Amiga, Soundtracker and Noisetracker, but the almost of my tunes was released with the greatest Protracker 1.3 version…


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

  • Its maybe a tune who never was published in any game or demo or music disk… But i like well – H2O&Compagny --, a multisong mod, i like well the start of it, the first 5 minutes…


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

  • There is more than one, you kiddin ? A lot of tunes was a way to pass the time, and to get some mind experiences


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

  • In a demo, for me 50%, and 33% in a game.


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

  • I still composing and using partially my Amiga (10 to 20%) for inimitables lines. I play guitars, drums and synths, i sing but all of that for my great pleasure. I dont have to think a lot during the time i am on my instruments. It could seems weird, but i denied some professional purposes… Don’t ask me why.


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

  • Its alwayz music, but i deplored the mutiplicity of music progs. It appears to me the better way to lose the control of your mind. I need to concentrate myself on ergonomic and familiar area, and put my soul in it.


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

  • Too many tunes, yes. I love Nebulos, from my friend Raphaël Gesqua, i love TJA, you remember that ? Undersea, from Codex


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

  • I though about it, but i never found any ideas to « remastered » the original Amiga songs. I continue to keep in respect the sound of the origin, and the total stéréo of it ? I well tryed to grow up the 8bits sounds with a Zoom effects machine, but it was so different.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • A band is more than music, its the show ! I listen to Nightwish, Within temptation, Placebo, REM, Tim Buckley, Enya, Mecano, in Flames, Kaliban, Pink Floyd, The Who, YES, E.L.O, SuperTramp and a lot of bands. Everything i love !


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

  • Friends, nice time, energy !


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

  • Not at all.


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

  • I applause for that site ? And every persons who will never forget this marvellous Time…
