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

  • I guess I really got into computers in the early 90's, when I started
    learning Noisetracker to compose some really crappy stuff.

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

  • C64, that I used to play games with. Oh, and my dad had this hardcore
    PC with like 640k of memory and a harddrive!

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

  • That's just what I kind of fell into, eventhough I'm quite into design aswell,
    no good with pixelling though. But yeah, music was and is a big part of my life
    I guess.

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

  • Noisetracker, Startrekker, OctaMED and Protracker 2.36 in particular. On
    the C64 I've been using Groovy Beat, DMC .. uhm, and JCH's Newplayer in
    particular. On the Gameboy, I started with Musicbox, but I'm nowadays
    using Carillon Player and Little Sound DJ.

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

  • There's been quite a few over the years, but in retrospect I don't really like
    them nowadays, so... I don't know!

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

  • Uhm, I guess I've done some tunes that I'm not proud of at all. For example,
    various covers that are supposed to have the right notes but don't. But to
    be honest, my memory isn't very good, so I don't remember many tunes at all!

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

  • It all depends, naturally. Sometime, the game/demo is totally uplifted by a
    good tune, and sometimes the code, graphics, concept, or whatever, is the thing
    that makes the difference. In general, I find audiovisual stuff more
    interesting than only audio or visual stuff standalone though.

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

  • I'm currently composing and performing as Goto80, doing chip-music, videogame-stuff,
    c64, gameboy, etc, and I have another alias, Extraboy. That's more about hi-fi
    electronica, drum'n'bass, jazz, electro, and so on for www.subnatura.com. Both of
    the projects are for both professional and leisure purposes.

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

  • Well, I think of demos as something that artistically demonstrates what a specific
    piece of hardware can do. I like hardcore tweeking outside the general hardware,
    fooling the hardware to do stuff it's not supposed to. Most pc-demos and alot
    of amiga-demos, is about using default-drivers, making it compatible with various
    hardware-configurations, and I think that's lame as fuck! If you're calling it
    a demo, anyway. I guess most demos today more should be looked upon as musicvideos
    with a limited budget. And, hehe, to answer the question: mpeg and wave is lame,
    general midi is .. well .. it's a bit better for demo-purposes I guess.

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

  • Hmmm! No, not really. :)

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

  • I've got an album coming out on Rebel pet set records, called Commodore Grooves,
    with C64/Amiga-tunes and a Gameboy-song aswell.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Various soundtracks to 1970's pornomovies, Drexciya, The Advent, Dr Higgins, Prince
    Far I, Amon Tobin and Telefon Tel Aviv.

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

  • A life, friends, a hobby..

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

  • Yeah! Mostly on C64 I guess.

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

  • Fuck off lamers!
