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

  • When my father bought a TI 99/4A in 1981, I was very quickly addicted to it.


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

  • TexasInstrument 99/4A: gaming and typing BASIC source code from books.
    Amstrad CPC464/6128: gaming, swaping.
    Amiga 500-1200: music, coding ASM, demos.
    PC: nowadays, music, coding c++, webdev/php...


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

  • Because i've been involved with music since i was young.


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

  • Delta, Soundtracker and Protracker on amiga, nowadays i'm working with cubase
    and a bunch of VST plugs.


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

  • Never really had a goal...


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

  • Most of them, because they were very crappy.


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

  • A demo is like a videoclip, so i would say it's essential.
    For a game it's totally different because the music plays for a while so it
    shouldn't be too boring. I'd like to ear more interactive music in games.


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

  • Yes, i have a project with my best friend under the name "banditos", we have
    been releasing a dozen of ep-vinyl, mostly dancefloor and break electronic
    music.


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

  • The music has nothing to do with the format.


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

  • Those daisy chain mods by Rhesus Minus and some tunes by Bruno, Uncle Tom and
    Heatbeat.


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

  • No, i prefer to release fresher stuff :)


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Too much band names to type, I'm listenig to a lot of electronica, dub, reggae
    and hip-hop...


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

  • My job.


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

  • Not at all.


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

  • Big up to my 'melon' friends, monty, gengis and anyone who remembers me!
