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

  • I guess it was in 81/82 and it started with nintendo game&watch. a year or so
    later my neighbours started getting computers, c64, sinclair zx81, amstrad etc.

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

  • I got my first computer in 85, a Spectravideo (svi-328), I purchased a cbm64
    that same year. later in 88, i got an Amiga. I played games for the most part,
    untill i got the Amiga.

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

  • I started out playing around with deluxe-paint2, but I was so lousy, my friends
    introduced me to tracking! :-) I was always playing instruments, since
    childhood, so i guess it was the easiest thing to do..

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

  • I started out with a tracker called (I think) sound-player (?) I`m not sure
    anymore! ;-) but I soon discovered soundtracker (1.3 i think, original obarski
    version anyway). it swept me away. on the c64 i used a proggy called

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

  • Well, sun-fun was good at the time (I felt) but some of the best ones (in my
    opinion, was lost (corupted floppies.. agh!))

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

  • Hehe several, does cheese say anything to you? :-D

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

  • It means 99%, i would never stick to my cbm64, and amiga, if it werent for
    the music, but ask a coder, and he`ll answer in hex, hehe!

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

  • Absolutely, i had a break for quite a good time (partyparty), but I started
    slowly again back in 97, and I found to my great plasure the familiar looking
    ft2. I hope to use my music somewhere in time..

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

  • Midi is booring, mpeg is practical, and wav is great! :)

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

  • Cbm64: Martin Galway - terra cresta, paralax, wizball, rambo, the loaders i
    could go on for ever..

    Rob Hubbard: Zoids, Last v8, Delta etc. etc.

    Tim Follin: he had controll man! check him out if you havent already.

    Fred Grey, Ben Daglish, and many many more..


    (almost) All the Thomas Dahlgren (uncle tom) trax.
    Codex of Razor was great.

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

  • If I can find them all, i think i would.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • 80`s synthdisco, like Mike Mareen, and Trans-x, but also psy-trance (Mino,
    logic bomb, etc.) Depeche mode is one of my favorites.. then there`s 70`s
    fusion-jazz, classical music (romantic) like Wagner, Tchaicowsky, and Jon
    Williams (if you could call that bands.. hehe!) get a picture? :-)

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

  • A lot of fun, and today i work with computers, with almost no effort, compared
    to getting a similar job, and education.

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

  • Nah, i have contacted many ppl, but we are on different scenes now..

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

  • I would like to thank Zero The Hero (Abnormal), and greetings goes to:
    Uncle Tom, Lord Strangelove, Ziphoid, Codex, Sector 9, Doctor no (all Razor
    1911), Buzz (Abnormal), Fist (Abnormal), Rocky (Abnormal), Power (Abnormal),

    (Rawhead), Cycle-Burner (Contex), Prosonix, and all the other guys that I
    can / can`t remember.. Zeb signing off.... . . .
