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

  • I got into computers at a very young age, first for games such as the Philips
    Videopac to C64 to Amiga.

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

  • On the Amiga it was the for the first time i found out i could actually do
    something else than playing games, namely to create something myself.

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

  • Coding wasnt really me, as i'm pretty bad with numbers and all, I used to try my
    hand on graphics but i wasnt really gifted in that field either! :) I got into
    music through my family who are all big music lovers / collectors / makers.
    So music was the obvious choice for me.

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

  • I think i started with Noisetracker, which later became Protracker. I tried
    Octamed too but Protracker was the one for me

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

  • I can't really say. I recently found one mod by me called Numb on a website and
    I liked it pretty much. Funny that that was made somewhere around 1993 and it
    still doesnt really sound outdated. I think when doing music you never really
    reach your goal, as that would mean you could stop composing. It isnt really
    about goals anyway, more about an expression of something.

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

  • I can't stand listening to chip tunes (the 2kb ones), on the other hand, they
    do reflect the beginning of the era of digital music! So theyre actually fossils
    that we should keep to play to our kids lol

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

  • An essential part of it!

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

  • Yes I am. I'm dj'ing for the last 8/9 years, playing drum 'n bass mainly. My
    artist name is DJ PAN. Also I picked up on making music again, first just to
    learn the technique, but for the last 1,5 years i'm seriously on the case
    again. It's going quite well, some bigger dj's play my tracks, and I get to
    see parts of the world by dj'ing, so I'm satisfied for now.

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

  • I use them a lot in my new studio environment. I work with Logic Audio and
    software such as recycle and soundforge. I have a MOTU 828mk2 soundcard and
    an analog Mackie 16 channel desk as well as an ancient Roland Jx8p which I use
    for midi triggering and sometimes for sounds.

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

  • The best composers on Amiga are Heatbeat, Audiomonster and Jesper Kyd.

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

  • No. The tunes are from my past - and they will stay there!

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Too many to mention. I listen everything ranging from 50s jazz to funk to soul
    to rnb to hiphop to house to techno to drum n bass + lots more.. :)

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

  • Not much, apart from that i started to learn my first lessons in making music,
    which now prove to be quite important!

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

  • NO!

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

  • I recently found some of my old scene friends again! which im very happy about,
    their lives are going well so thats good to hear. So greets to Fred, Stephane,
    Walt, Alex and Fabrice in Paris, and to my long time friends Astro and Mark!
