    Group: ex-cyberpunx,ex-711,ex-xrated,ex-talent (searching for a group now!

    Date of birth: 25.03.74


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

  • A couple of friends had a C=+4, C16, Z81 (or what the names were :) and some
    old consoles... And I wanted one,too! I think it was my 13th birthday (1987)
    when my parents bought me a C16 from ALDI i began basic programming a little
    bit. 1 or 2 years later i got my first C64 and started to compose music at
    once!


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

  • Oh, sorry, I answered above.. :) now i have a duron700,256MBram,10GBHDD,
    Gforce2,terratec dmx soundcard. and certainly still my c64 with cartriges
    and so on.....


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

  • I was always interested in music since i can think. my parents sing a lot
    and my mother was playing guitar a bit. i was at a "music-school" when i
    was 5years old, had piano lessons, played drums in bands when i was 12 and
    then guitar and bassguitar... so, music is my life!


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

  • On C64 I use(d) FutureComposer, VoiceTracker, RoMuzak, X-AmpleEditor (don't
    know the real name) and some I don't remember...

    On PC I use(d) WhackerTracker(or so), Fasttracker1 and 2, Jeskola Buzz,
    Psycle, ...???


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

  • I never reach a goal :)


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

  • Not really, there are songs that remind me of ex-girlfriends in a bad way...


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

  • I think music in a demo is very valuable! whats a demo without a cool
    soundtrack? crap!


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

  • I still compose on PC for both purposes and i am searching for a c64 or PC
    demo group now, so let me know if you have a job for me :) (


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

  • Some are great but it has nothing to do with the art of composing music in
    trackerstyle.


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

  • On c64 the game musics from wizball, cybernoid, hawkeye, katarkis monty on
    the run,... and some c64 demos from blackmail, crest, etc... (Rob Hubbard,
    Jeroen Tel, Charles Deenen, Chris Hülsbeck, Reyn Ouwehand and certainly
    Martin Galway are/were the best i think)

    Demo tunes from second reality (PC) etc. are also really great !


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

  • I made an audio-cd with my c64 sids a little bit remastered, it sounds very
    cool although i used just emulated sound. i will give it to all my friends
    as a gift, to remember the good old times... perhaps i do a version sampled
    originally from c64 but i have not much time for that.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • What a question?!? very much and all stylez of music... i listen to bands
    like slayer,slipknot,meshuggah... but also to tori amos, tom waits, the
    beatles, or J.S. Bach! I listen to all noize that sounds interesting....
    except the charts and all pop-shit.


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

  • It means a lot to me, its a big part of my life! i grew up with it, with all
    the cool sceners, the crackers and so one, i am very proud to know people
    who are the best coders/hackers/crackers/pixelmaniacs/musicians/... in the
    world!


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

  • Not really, only sum c64 fake demos or multichannel/c64 compos. i will be
    at mekka 2002, if there is one(?) like every year ... c ya there ?!


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

  • greetz to count zero/scs*trc, greenfrog, ofire, x-raffi, cru, ... and all i
    forgot! keep the scene ruling!
