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

  • My interest for computer started very early. It might have been in 1984 og 85.
    I was playing C64 games at the house of my neighbour. I was only 5 or 6 years
    old so I didn't understand very much more than games but a little later my
    cousin got a C64 for christmas. Then we spend hours coding basic programs from
    the c64 manual.

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

  • C64 - At first I only played games, then I entered the democene.
    Swapped disks and drew some logos.

    Amiga - Mostly music and some drawing. Also some gaming.

    PC - ..

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

  • I did not make music when I was active with my C64 because it was too dificult.
    However with the tracker applications for Amiga, making music was much easier,
    and this was what I had a better nack at than drawing logos.

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

  • Sound Tracker... later Fast Tracker on PC.

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

  • Don't think I really had a firm goal for making music.

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

  • Hmmm... Can't really remember any tune that bad.

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

  • The ambience of the game and demo relies very much on the music. Lately when
    the graphics of most games are getting better and better, the music is more
    and more important for me. For example, the two games Unreal Tournament and
    Quake 3 came out almoast at the same time. I belive the 3D engine of Q3 is
    better than the one for UT, but the music and therefore the ambience of UT
    makes me like that game better.

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

  • I am not composing now. I would like to take it up. I am, however using the
    computer when making some house mixes.

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

  • I am not very into the demoscene anymore so I don't think I could answer that

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

  • oooh... the names are all forgotten... Well, for example the tune from the game
    Lost Patrol. Otherwise... ehmmm... Well, I really like some of Mikromissions
    chip tunes, like his cucumber series:)

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

  • I have actually thought of that. I just might do that, but I think some of the
    tunes need to be altered some, so they last longer than 30 secs (I have mostly
    chip tunes, I can't reallly find the other stuff I made).

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Hmmm... let's see. Right now I listen alot to Massive Attack, Kings of
    convenience, various house composers (felix da housecat,Ian Pooley, Miguel
    Migs +++), Aromabar+++++

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

  • They gave me a lot! I have spent many hours of my life with these devices,
    and I think I owe my interest and career choice from that. I have a MSc. in
    computer science;)

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

  • Nope...

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

  • I would like to say that this is a very nice initiative. I have unfortunately
    lost most of my mods, but it was nice to rediscover some of them on the site.
    It gives back good memories!!!
