    Date of birth: 2.11.1978.

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

  • A. I was around 6 and my brother got a ZX Spectrum 48K, and I was hooked
    and interested in the small noisy device. It was 1984. I think...

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

  • A. ZX Spectrum 48K, Amiga 500. Sold or given.

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

  • A. I'm a graphician and a professional graphic designer, basicly, but I
    started composing because I love music and the machine has answers to all my

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

  • A. SoundTracker, NoiseTracker, ProTracker, Octamed, Octamed Soundstudio,
    DigiBooster, DigiBooster Pro, Fast Tracker, Buzz.

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

  • A. Schlipss. Or Bassehop. Who the fuck knows... The Champions are nice, too...

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

  • A. No. I like 'em all... I feel no shame. Never did.

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

  • A. No music - no demo - no game. 4k without music sucks.

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

  • A. Yep, and will continue. Whaddafuck is proffesional purposes? Money? No I
    don't compose for money. I compose for that is one of the many ways of
    free expression of different human conditions.

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

  • A. Its a waveform. Its ok. No limits. But some idiots tend to exaggarate and
    compress a 4channel module of 20 kilos into mpeg of 4 megabytes... But
    then, they ARE idiots and we all know that.

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

  • A. Hm... Heatbeat's piece for the Virtual Dreams "Full Moon", Jogeirs piece
    for "Love - the demo", although I heard its a rip-off somewhere, music
    from "Interference" by Sanity, Clawz' music from Origin, piece from
    "9Fingers" by Spaceballs from the old times.

    Today. MD from TPOLM's all times masterpiece TE-2RB. And the new
    spaceballs' musician is fantastic. New school gets betta' every day...

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

  • A. This Spring, probably.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • A. Autechre, House of Pain, Beastie Boys, EdRush&Optical, Imminent
    Starvation, Klute, etc.

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

  • A. Might and Magic.

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

  • A. Yep. I just create and create. But what has changed is that nowdays there
    are no limits. I do on every platform everything. Amiga, PC, Mac, NeXT,
    Sylicon Graphics. All our under our control. Or we under theirs? Who the
    fuck cares...

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

  • A. I greet all that are around, and many that left for "better life". Life
    without electricity is not the life of a scener. Greets to my colleauges
    from Reason, and all the people I know and know me.
