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

  • it's for in 1991 when a friend of mine showed me hios AMIGA. I've never learned
    any music lessons, but Sound Tracker was a impressed me a lot. So I've tried
    a lot of time to make a "music" ( more noise than sound actually )


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

  • AMIGA 500, then only PC. I was a player, but take advantage of ScreamTracker3
    for multichannel modules. I've bought a Gravis UltraSound so the samples were
    so nice !!!


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

  • I'm coder too, but music is really a great experience. For now, I play Keyboard,
    Bagpipe, Conterbasse, and accordeon lol


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

  • I'm used to compose with cakewalk / sonar. But I love tracking with Skale
    Tracker.


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

  • I think I 'm not achieving today. I must work msuic hard to make a really geat
    song ... :-(


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

  • Yep ! For a Traditionnal French Folk group, I've composed a music for BagPipe
    Hurdy Gurdy and accordeon, but that was an awful experience, the first I've
    tried.


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

  • Gimmicks, Gimmicks and Gimmicks. Nowadays, music is only used for Background.
    I remember so many oldskools musics that are in my head and memory. Games
    Factory must take care of it ! They must copie what's doing for a Movie
    Soundtrack.


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

  • Yes I'm still composing, for pleasure, but although for games, Folk Music and
    for me !


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

  • a good evolution, but tracking is more difiicult now, because of no really
    good tracker program


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

  • Skaven's Goblin, Tip & Mantronix's Sweet Shop


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

  • no. but futures musics might.


  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Mes Souliers sont Rouges


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

  • The opportunity to make musics


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

  • no


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

  • Yep !
    First of all, You ! Thx for keeping all those musics !
    Then, JFF for giving me the chance of creating demo-musics
    My Wife, to be so patient ...
