    dtp and PC for video editing, web (html&flash) presentations, art (Photoshop)
    and scanning.

    girlfriend ;]

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

  • Both.


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

  • I love mp3 because samples (instruments) are copyrighted and can't be used
    anywhere and song can be heard by anyone.

  • There are some of them I'd mention -

    Communism is dead.mod (that appeared on the first techno album "Teknoactive"
    ever released in my country) DzabeBabe.mod (that appeared on the secomd techno
    album "RaveTheBrain") Malo Jache.mod (song that was top1 on "Modulacije",
    Belgrade radio show for 12 months (!) in 1994.) ... and many others...

  • Yep. Check djnick.co.yu for more info.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • A lots. And it depends on the moment. Sometimes I listen ambiental stuff (like
    Future Sound of London), sometimes goa-trance, sometimes minimal-techno and
    sometimes industrial (Rammstein)...


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

  • A lots of ideas for music. I often watch amiga/c64 and PC demo scene & enjoy in
    good stuff.


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

  • Nope as I'm currently in the army (and will be in next 8 months) :(


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

  • HiHo to all sceners around the globe! (sounds stupid but this one comes first
    to my mind).

    p.s. sorry for short answers, I'm in a hurry as I'll be here just tomorrow and
    girlfriend can't wait ;)
