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

  • It all started with video games for me. This was back in the mid 80s.
    I don't remember when I got my first C64 (somewhere between 85 and 89) but
    I think I got my first Amiga in 89. My memory fails me.


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

  • A couple of Amiga 500s, a 2000, a 600 and a 1200, and a couple of PCs
    between 94 and 99. I still have an Amiga 600 lying around for sentimental
    reasons but it hasn't been switched on for at least three years now.


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

  • Personal preference I guess. Bigger passion for music. Zero talent for coding.


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

  • Back in the Amiga days I used numerous so-called trackers. Music-X was
    my first encounter with MIDI back in 91 or 92. In recent years I have
    been going forth and back between various PC MIDI sequencers.
    Primarily Cakewalk, Cubase and Logic.


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

  • No Amiga module really gave me that feeling... I think. I don't know.
    It's a long time ago now. There were some Amiga pieces I was happier about
    than others but like everybody else I guess I always tried to improve,
    one step at the time.


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

  • A lot of them for a lot of reasons.


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

  • For me as a musician it's probably a lot more important than your
    average guy.


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

  • I do. Professionally. Although not full-time at the moment. I'm building
    a new project studio which, wife and kid aside, is top priority right
    now. Should be up and running early next year.


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

  • I'm not sure what you mean by that.


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

  • If you are refering to Amiga modules I don't really remember. The last
    couple of years I was using an Amiga, Dizzy made a lot of stuff that
    blew me away. But there were a lot of talented guys on the Amiga and
    they all had they own thing going.


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

  • Hell no.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • A lot.

    Various drum 'n' bass artists
    Various underground house artists
    Various contemporary jazz artists

    Last few albums I bought was:

    Brian Transeau -- ?? (Latest/new)
    4 Hero -- Two Pages Reinterpretations
    Nick Holden -- From Within
    Jonny L -- Magnetic
    Dimension -- 11th Dimension
    Pat Metheny & Jim Hall -- Pat Metheny & Jim Hall
    George Duke -- After Hours
    Philippe Saisse -- Halfway 'til Dawn
    Simon Phillips -- ?? (Latest/new)


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

  • A lot I guess. We were so passionate back then, weren't we? When I think
    back I sometimes get a bit sad because growing up you leave that kind
    of pure and intense teenage passion behind. I miss walking around
    being an arrogant cock of a so-called Amiga musician, thinking I was
    on top of the world, not knowing how much of a dick I was. Yeah, I miss
    the Amiga days, although I would never ever do it again.


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

  • Not at all. It's been many years now. I didn't even know there still
    was a scene.


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

  • Much respect to everybody who contributed making the Amiga days such a
    special memory for a lot of people. Me included. I think everybody
    who was there will treasure the memory for a long time to come.
    It was a bit hardcore at times but that's what passion is all about,
    isn't it?
