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

  • My interest for computers first started with the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48 kb
    (with rubber keys) in 1983.

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

  • Sinclair Spectrum: Playing games, basic programming, MIDI music.

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

  • Just that I was always interested in music, since I was a little kid.

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

  • Since the beginning....

    Sinclair Spectrum: "SpecDrum"
    Sinclair Spectrum: "Music Machine"

    Amiga: "Aegis Sonix"
    Amiga: "Soundtracker"
    Amiga: "Noisetracker"
    Amiga: "OctaMED"
    Amiga: "Protracker"
    Amiga: "Music-X"

    PC: "Fasttracker"
    PC: "Cakewalk"
    PC: "Cakewalk Pro Audio"
    PC: "Cakewalk SONAR"
    PC: "DirectMusic Producer"

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

  • Hmmm... probably "Space Deliria".

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

  • I made a lot of bad songs (and a few not so bad), but I can't really
    remember any of the bad ones... they are just forgotten in a foggy past...

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

  • Very important, but not THE most important. In a game, the most important
    thing is playability, and in a demo, the overall impression (of which the
    music is a very important part).

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

  • I'm composing for professional purposes now, it's how I make my living. I
    write music for computer games and now also for videos and a new TV series.

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

  • Ehmm... I like all that stuff.

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

  • Do you mean my own tunes or somebody elses tunes?

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

  • I've already done that. The CD is called "Revive" and was released last
    year. It contains my 12 best Amiga tracks - not just remastered, but totally
    re-recorded in full studio with real instruments (guitar, bass, drums,

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Dream Theater, Transatlantic, Porupine Tree, Liquid Tension Experiment.

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

  • Friends, practice, music, great memories - and a job.

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

  • No. But I still go to some demoscene parties to meet old friends.

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

  • I'd like to send a greeting to all the old Amiga freaks who remember the
    Crusaders and our demos such as "Bacteria", "Bass-o-matic", "Audio-X" and
    many many others. Thanks for some great times about 10 years ago. :-). And
    please visit my site and check my new music.
