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

  • My computer interest started in 1986 I think! I got a Commodore 64
    as a christmas gift! I started like many other kids at that age!
    But after a while I started to get tired with the games and started
    to experiment with tools and programming in basic :) Made some a whole
    lot games for it and other nice things! After 2-3 years we started our
    own demogroup with a couple of nabours and school friends with the
    same computer as me :) But in 1991 I bought myself an Amiga 500,
    and started to make programs in Amos Basic! Me and 2 other Amiga friends
    hang together and made lotsa tools and stuff like that. We developed
    a program for football lottery. We first started to make it in Amiga
    Basic but that was terrible difficult to make graphics stable! So we
    stopped at that moment. And when we got Amos we started to make it more
    advancer! It was really cool :) But I joined the Amiga scene in 1994
    as a musician! I started to compose music in 1992, when I got my first
    copy of Protracker :) It was really fun making music and that was
    the reason probably that I became a multifunctionel Amiga freak :D
    But music is the main reason I think that I still like my Amiga :)
    I played in a band were we used my Amiga with soundcard and other music
    equipment and it really went very well, we won a couple of local
    music compotitions!


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

  • My first computer was really a Dragon 64, which I used a normal
    cassette player to read the games, but it was hell noisy :) Then I got an
    C-64, and I did not much! Coding mostly and playing games. Now they are
    home at my parents house, 4 C64's and that Dragon 64 of mine :)


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

  • I dont know, I started with Coding at the start with the Amiga, but I got
    attracted to the Protracker and music, I also did a lot of pictures :))


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

  • I have been using Protracker for mainly composing and Octamed,
    Noise/Soundtracker mostly! I maily use Protracker4.5Alpha when I compose
    my modules :)


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

  • One of my favour modules are my mod.jalla :) A really fast and
    funky tune.


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

  • Yeah, the one I composed when I was 16 years old for my girlfriend.
    And she really hated it :) SADLY it didnt last either :)


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

  • Depends on the game, if its a Sci-Fi game, it sure must include techno
    based music. And so on, a lot of games has terrible sound and music :(
    Dont know where they get them from :)


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

  • I'm still trying to compose some modules. But now my inspiration is about
    zero. I have been involved with some professional music. Music for local
    radios and other small projects.


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

  • Mpeg is a very good type of BIG music pieces which takes big place! Wave
    is good, but not as good as Mpeg music packs. There is a lot which could
    be said about this question :)


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

  • Hard to say as I listen to all kind of music! But soul funk is a great
    type of music. And I also listen a lot to GOA!


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

  • I have plans, but not in the near future! Need to invest some more in music
    equipments.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Jean Michel Jarre, Metallica some techno and stuff :)


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

  • A great deal of fun and inspirience to continue to keep fighting for what
    we got :)


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

  • I'm very active! And I have a terrible lazy period, havent almost
    done anything :(


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

  • Wanna greet all my team members, and espesially
    Ghandy, Modem, Kaosmaster, Crisp, Sunbeam, Zoltrix etc which
    have helped me alot :)
