    Group: Intense + Arkham

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

  • well, I started just before 90's. Everything started the day I looked for a
    computer. Yes, I am one of that lucky boys that started with an amiga as first
    computer (and next I tried to use some amstrad 6128 and pc 286 just for fun...).
    How I did it ? I came to my best friend's home to see his amiga running shadow
    of the beast, after burner and kickoff 1... : thanks to ooops/arkham and
    realized it was an amazing things to me. I decided to get one... It was the
    best thing ever done for me... I selected the marvelous amiga. And I still find
    it as the best OS. I choosed to keep "killer" as my nickname because I was not
    very bad... in skateboarding and some friends called me like this...


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

  • I tried some basic on some very old philips computers at school but.. I've
    always wanted to work and to be in computer things.


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

  • I wanted to start demos because of some friends on Atari I think... because I
    loved amiga demo, and the amiga movement. So we formed our crew which was
    called : Progenyx and later we mixed it with Argonaut's EASY(Tony) crew to
    create ARKHAM.


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

  • Soundtracker, Protracker, Fast Tracker.
    But I tried a lot of trackers of course. The best for me is still Protracker V2!
    Today I still use Fastracker and I've won a music contest at BZH next year (2001)
    with the famous Soundracker under Linux. Yes it's done and it works very fine !!!
    I use Cool Edit for cutting my Loop and beat or to create new sounds.


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

  • this is such a big question... I don't know. Maybe the one about ARTOAX/HYDROXID
    :) it was so fun to sing it during some parties and it still makes me smile a
    lot :)


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

  • Yes... A tune A gived to my friend SNAP/AKM during a saturn compo... it was
    ranked 9 :)= and the one I worked a lot was not selected...


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

  • Fast or slow, a music must be played in the same way as the demo goes. It might
    be fast or slow : it depends of the effect or the moment during a demo or a
    game... Jester/sanity was very good for that! The disco style or the State of
    the Art tune-like are very amazing. Anyway, if a tune give you the need to dance,
    then it's a nice tune :)


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

  • I am not composing anymore but sometimes... I launch fastracker. Maybe soon
    I'll try to practice it again. But it'll be for fun and just for trying some
    Trip-Hop sounds.


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

  • I still prefer to have delitracker's (i386) or modplug player running originals
    sounds and I am an addicted geek of nectarine. I don't really love MP3 (which
    contains Fasttracker things) because it's not a real module playing... Anyway,
    mp3 is not a bad thing for music lover like me. I still don't love midi things
    and I prefer pure sound card playing. In any case, the smaller it is, the best
    it goes.


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

  • Lizardking powa :) :) :)
    Jester's
    Laxity's
    Jogeir powa :) :) :)
    Nuke's
    4mat's
    moby's "elmobo" (lol :) :) )
    and many more from MON project...


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

  • not from my old tune... But I'll create new ones with Trip Hop feelings...


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Dj Krush, Dj CAM, Dj Kick's, Dj Shadow, Nectarine radio, and some Hip hop Radio
    (I have DJ-Turn-Tables too :) ), some house and some techno dream sometimes.
    And recently, I used to love some POP rock.


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

  • Some wonderfullllll SID and Soundmon sounds I love to collect. I love C64
    sounds!!!! When I heard a tune I want to launch fasttracker again... Yes I
    am addicted !


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

  • Not really. But I'm still looking for old friends... and why not having fun to
    try it again :) come on join me on a chat at fr.undernet.org or irc.epiknet.org
    at #linu-z channels I am interesting in Linux scene too :)

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

  • yes :> Lets send some hot chips to : ARKHAM survivors, INTENSE crew,
    Ninja/SCX, some guyz in BOMB, some old ex-Atari people, some new IRC friend
    and linux team mates. I would like to thanks EASY and KEM, ARTOAX, TECH DESIGN,
    Jeremy LATYL, SILICON and PierriK, to be online with me :) it's so nice to chat
    about old time. Specials helloes to SNAP aka DJ SLY and so on... like people
    of my Linu-z project community. Really thanks to that french Nectarine crew.
    I love you guyz!!!! (P.S. : yes LATYL, we'll make it soon possible)

    And last but not least, a particular thanks to my best friend Spootnic (ooops)
    for loving the same things as/like me : dancing, triphop, supporting, amiga
    sounds, playing kickoff, having fun with FIFA and trying that new KICK OFF 2002
    game on PC !!! Thanks Nicolas. Let's keep the fun and more.
