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

  • In fact, I remember my first computer : a C64. That machine was really
    great. It don't remember what year it was, but it is long ago.
    My first interest at this time was, probably like the most of the people,
    the GAMEZ. Yes, No other machines was able to produce interesting gamez
    as the C64.

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

  • C64, Amiga, and PC.
    C64 : Gaming and a little programming.
    Amiga : Music and Assembler
    PC : Music and Programming.

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

  • It was of course the only thing I was masterizing at this time. Now I'm able to code
    but I have no time to do this.

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

  • Amiga : Protracker was in my opinion the best one. I have composed the
    90 percent of my song with it.

    PC : Fasttracker, no doubts. really close to protracker and really enhanced !
    It is a real pleasure to use it.

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

  • No one. I don't consider I was a major musician in the scene. I only
    composed for the fun !

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

  • No. Every tune is a step a better one. Sometimes it's crap, and sometimes
    it's great. I don't want to erase any tune I've made.

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

  • Very important. The music is in my opinion the thing that can captivate
    the viewer. Without tune, there is no possibility to feel the ambiance.

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

  • No, I've made any modules on PC, but I've never released anyone. In fact,
    I don't belong of any group, and it's better like that, but I will never
    forget the "scene" mind.

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

  • Really excellent. The computer music scene is being really professionnal.

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

  • Enigma - Firefox
    Progressive Funk - Moby
    Varanen - Lizardking

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

  • No.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Counting Crows, Marillion, Alanis, Gomez, Zazie, ...

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

  • A mind, the "scene" mind. "Competition and fun"

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

  • No.

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

  • I must have had about 200 contacts when I was active.
    So I greet all my friends and all the people who helped me and
    greeted me during these incedible years of fun.
