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

  • My Interest began with a friend of mine and his little Oric ATMOS, 25 years
    ago.


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

  • I had : A Commodore 128; two Amiga 500; one Amiga 2000; two Amiga 1200; and
    now, I have 5 PCs. I do manything with this machines (music,gfx,games etc..)


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

  • Because I'm a zero with programation in all language :):)


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

  • I began with soundtracker on my first amiga 500, then I composed with
    Protracker like many people.


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

  • I think my best module was "ShitGroove" composed by me and arranged in direct
    by my friend Moby (DreamDealers, Sanity etc.. )


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

  • There is a module I have forgotten, it was a module of mine that my friend
    Gryzor take to put it in his famous Cd compilation "Modules Anthology" but
    it was not completed an dit stopped during the middle.. what a shame !!!


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

  • It is very important to sustain a special rythm anda dd a relief to the visual..
    most of demos where famous only by there musics


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

  • I'm composing very rarely, because, I have no group since a lot of time,
    family life prime, and when you don't have any group, the motivation to compose
    is not here..


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

  • I respect all music works and all format, music will be music forever, but
    that's right that many programs catch the autenticity of a real work did by
    the musician. Some pieces of music are made in only one hour with the complicity
    of soft very sophisticated but where is the pleasure to create with his hands
    and his creative imagination ???


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

  • My favourite composer is naturally MOBY (Amiga scene, not the tv artist). He is
    my friend and my favourite tune is and will rest a music composed by moby for a
    Dreamdealers demo and intituled "Let There Be Funk" a great great great piece
    of music !!!!! Another music will be great in my mind "The SweatShop" do for a
    tune disc by the group Phenomena and many many others..


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

  • No, I don't I 've made audio cds with some of my compositions but, it's only
    to preserv the memory of my work ( (


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Currently, i'm listen "Likin'park", but I'm a 70' guy essentially and my
    favourite bands are "The Doors, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, ELP", and many
    many others..


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

  • The Amiga Scene give me the pleasure to meet many people during the meetings I
    visit. For exemple The Iris party in 92 at "Marnes la vallée" where I meet for
    the first time Moby and many great musicians and genius coders. All the people
    I was dreaming of.. And since, the "Garden partys" organised by my friends
    "Les Heretiques" in Savoie where I meet also many famous guys of the Amiga
    scene..


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

  • No, I'm playing alone in my corner but i've always some contacts with friends
    of the french scene


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

  • A big greet to all guys who contributed to do the amiga scene during these last
    years and a specially thanks to Cryptoburners. Seriously, I've forgotten to say
    that I found a lot of your music very greats!!!!
    And a last word : Please, dont care of my poor english but, my mother has ever
    speak me using french..
