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

  • Uh..that was a loong time ago. My first computer was Vic-20. I guess the first
    interest started when i saw C-64 at cousins (Sam T. Ham ex-Genius member).

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

  • After Vic i got C-128D, and then ofcourse came Amiga500, and then Amiga 1200
    with 060. I started "making" music with Amiga 500 (never felt that i was good
    at it, some mods i did like though)

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

  • All my relatives seem to be working with music. Isn't it obvious =)

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

  • FastTracker and on amiga Noisetracker etc.

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

  • Uh.. hard question. I think i like my Letter to mod. Not too good samples,

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

  • Hate demos had the worst mods ever. Archangel did awesome music for the Traffic
    demo. My tune in that demo was too experimental, which was VERY bad thing. But
    still.. we came 4th at assembly with it. Dont remember which year it was.

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

  • Is this a trick question ? I think music makes the demo, game even movies come
    alive. And if the music sucks the demo etc. will suck too. Unless you cant hear
    anything =)

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

  • Leisure purposes. I bought Trinity 64 and korg electribe s drummachine recently.
    I still want to make tracker music, but i dont have the time. Actually even my
    synths are loaned to Sam T. Ham, but seems to be that he too dont have the time
    =). Nowadays its all work and work

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

  • Mp3 is good thing. Ofcourse there's some negative sides as the Napster thing..

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

  • Yes! All of Jogeirs mods are great!!

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

  • Hmm .. hard question. Nope.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Metallica, Thin lizzy, Phoneheads (drum 'n bass), Vangelis, this would be
    like a VERY long list =)

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

  • Give me ? Hmm .. Lots of great time with my pals like SHD and Brainlock etc.

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

  • Nope. I see now and then some of the old scene people though.

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

  • I'd like to thank my mother for the ability to listen the noise from my room
    for all those horrible years! Hellos to all Mystic members ! =) Specially SHD.
    Haven't seen the guy for a long time.
