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

  • It was in the year 1989, my friend get his first A500. I saw the games with
    that fat GFX, so i bought my own a few weeks later.

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

  • My first Computer was that A500, but i used it only for gaming.
    1993 i get my first AGA Computer, it was only a nacked A1200, but i
    upgraded it with a Turboboard, and a lot of Memory. After that, gaming
    was too boring, i started to track my first PT MODs. Now i`m shipping
    on a high end upgrated A4000T.

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

  • Live is music, music is my live. I can live without drawn one picture, i can
    live without seen any buggy M$ Code. So the only way is music :)

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

  • In the beginning i used PT, and then the other stuff like Octamed. But the
    results were shity. And good that my A1200 Burned up. So i lost all
    my old experimental stuff :)

    Now, i`m using DigiboosterPro for Tracking. The rest is secret ;)

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

  • It was my first MOD released on mOODs. The MOD is called " Nightfear ".
    Ok, not the best quality, but it showed the way i like to compose, and
    wich style i like the most, It`s hardtrance baby :)

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

  • The MODs i don`t like were burned up with my A1200 ;)

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

  • I thing without music, it would`t make sence to watch a Demo or playing a game.
    Music is the best way to bring atmosphere into it. But, it`s better when
    anything fits together, to make a demo or game even more spectacular :)

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

  • Yo, i`m still composing, but it`s a long way to be professionel. I work on
    it, gelle? :)

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

  • I thing mp3 is a good idea, as long as you can copy Commercial Music quick
    and free over the net. But i hate mp3 on Scene Partys, becourse it killes
    our Tracker music. MOD Composer have the difficult work to get the most out
    of there MODs, and with mp3 you don`t have that problems. You can write music
    at the highest quality, and as you like, then you record it, and make a mp3
    out of it. Every idiot can do that! I hope that a few scene party organisers
    will overwork there MOD Combo rules, with a file lengh limit you can`t show,
    what a fat high quality sound you can create with todays Trackers :)

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

  • Strobo - Hollow < i found it on a disk from a friend, sounds funky :)
    sheffra - Terrorist ( the chopper ) RMX < if anyone has the Sampler
    " Fever in the Jungle VOL1 & VOL.2 " as mp3, please conntact me :)
    Undertaker - Analog Microwave < Yeah i like it harder baby :)

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

  • When i thing, that my equipment is good enough. Then i will make some CD only
    Stuff. But that can take a while ;)

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Hm, my favorite bands at the moment are, Theatre of Tragedy, Childrens of
    Bodom, and Nightwish. Yep, i also hear Gothic and Blackmetal, not only
    Techno. But my favorite Techno DJ`s are Talla2XLC and Sven Väth :)

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

  • The Amiga Scene is part of my live, i growed up with Amiga. I hope the Amiga
    lives as long, as i can die with it too :) I have much friends all over
    europe, who are using Amiga. I don`t want to miss this. :)

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

  • Hm, i don`t know if i should call me a real scener. Ok, i like to watch scene
    Demos, but i don`t have that much time to go on scene partys that often. This
    year i was @ mekka&symposium 2001, cool party, but i haven`t that time for
    sleeping at that party...... totaly stoned at the end, but THX to Popeshaver
    that he drived me back home :)

    But i have some projects, that i want you to know. The first is our mOODs label.
    I was one of the first mOOds member, we have growed bigger and bigger since we
    started it. Ok, no one of us was a scener before.... so we had a bad start at
    the beginning, becourse no one knowed us. But i thing, we are on the best way
    to become one of the biggest labels around :). Please take a look on our
    homepage, and listen to some MODs or mp3`s from us, thx :)

    The second project is our DigiboosterPro Community. We want that the DBP will
    be developed and updated in the future. The users can make a statement there,
    what they want to be updatet or developed next time. Also we had a userlist
    there, where you can sign yourself. But see it for yourself, its to difficult
    for me to explain every part of that site in english ;). But, we will make a
    seminar at the Fairy in Collogne at the 17. & 18. November this year, hope to
    see you there for some chatting :). Don`t forget to visit our site.....
    ok at the moment german only, but english coming soon :)

    Rambo, Elapse, Doc Mike, Todi, Veronika, Sadistica.... and all i forgott :)

    My english is so shit, forgive me, i only have a Haubtschulabschluss :)
