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

  • I have no sincere interrest for computers, i see them as tools... :)
    stupid malfuntioning tools.


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

  • a500 c64


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

  • In the scene? well Imake gfx too but i prefer to paint on real canvas and
    shit, (since that is my real interrest. The music thing is something i do
    when i havent got any good ideas for pictures i want to make)


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

  • err, lets see.. Protracker and it's early cousin's like noisetr and so on...


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

  • Some... "dream soundtrack" and "universe" were damn close to the image or
    mood, ambience i was trying to achieve.


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

  • hehehe... dream on ;) naah.. there are quite a few chippies that i made for
    fun as a sarkastic joke on the popular eurodisko-music. Wich people actually
    took very serious and liked... But i made them and i stand for them...
    Im glad people liked them, but it's a bummer that some of those who heard
    them didn't get the irony haha....


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

  • Well you can make a good demo without music too, :) it's the concept and
    design that matters really. If all parts are balanced or inbalanced with
    a twist you have a masterpiece or at least a demo that youll remember.
    It's the "vibe" of a demo that i like. And if the Vibe appeals then i am
    happy and wont delete the demo after viewing it.


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

  • I have never done a professional song. It's always for my own amusement.
    Then if someone else likes it it's a plus. But it's nothing crusial.


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

  • I think it's quite okay, a sad thing is that IMHO the MAJORITY of those who
    track, get hung up on the technique rather than the _music_.


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

  • well.... tracked ones? sorry, im lost there... i only kollect chippies by
    other musicians hehe...


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

  • See question 8. But i dunno... I will never sit down and think, "I am
    now going to track a song that will make me rich" :-). If someone calls me
    and says, hey i want to release that and that track i would gladly let him
    or her do it...


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Dizzie G, John Coltrane, Bill Evans trio, miles davis, roland kirk,
    some us.house mixtapes, russian classical composers, and... well 80%
    of it is Jazz Music...


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

  • The C64 made me aware of that there actually was a scene, and when i bought
    of an amiga i was dragged in...


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

  • Sort of...


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

  • Friends, past, present and future.
