    Date of birth: 06. July, 1970

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

  • 1982 I got my first computer. A Sinclair ZX81. I started coding BASIC
    since there was no other option;-)

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

  • 3 month later my father brought a VC20. And another 3 month later I
    got a C64 with Datasette. It took terrible long 3 years to get a
    1541, too;-) In the end of 1987 I started with 6502 assembler and
    finished my first intro with raster interrupts and stuff like that.
    In Summer 1988 I got a AMIGA 500. 1990 I got my first Harddrive with
    A.L.F.-Controller. 1992 I bought an A2000 with A2630 Card and GVP
    SCSI Controller. Later on I changed to a GVP GForce and added a
    Flickerfixer and Picasso II Board. That's the config still on my
    table and fully functional *knock*knock*.

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

  • I didn't end up since I did coding as well or even more talented. To
    do some scores along with white duke was pure fun since we had better
    musicians in Subway - Bug - and later Dream Team - STP.

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

  • SoundTracker, Protracker. Can't remember the exact versions.

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

  • LOL. With none. Two reasons for that. First, I had no goal. Second,
    none of them was of the quality our teammates produced.

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

  • No. It was a funny time. Maybe some of them are not worth listening
    anymore, but that's part of the storay so far;-)

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

  • I think STP brought it to the point in his interview... The music
    decides how long a demo is watched in the first place. If the demo
    itself is boring the music is ripped of and played even today on

    Thanks to UAE we're able to play all the demos, too.

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

  • No, not at all. A found my profession in designing large scale
    internet platforms for mail, web, usenet and many more services. As
    part of it I have to code a lot as well. I'm completly addicted to
    Open Source, GNU, Linux.

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

  • Well, mp3's are great. But it's still wonderfull to open some
    oldstyle modules. The more details about the mod on the screen the
    better. I still love to open some in eg modplug tracker and watch the
    patterns moving up;-) And in some extrem situations I start my AMIGA
    and listen to the best modules with my own Moduleplayer STP (stp141 on aminet).

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

  • Space Debris, Street Jungle, Elysium, Cream of Earth, Phase1 (Atari)

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

  • no.

  • 12-What bands are you currently listenning to?

  • Pink Floyd, Keane, Moby, ....

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

  • Friends, nice stays in foreign countries, lots of fun, experience

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

  • No.

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

  • Sure;-) All my teammates from Mygon, Quest, Subway, Dream Team and
    all the others knowing me.

    Last but not least I want to say, that I'm deeply shocked by the news
    of the death of bug. Since I don't know any details yet I can't say
    any more then that I feel sorry for all his relatives. He'll ever
    have a place in our memories refreshed every time listening to his tunes.

    Servus from Vienna, Austria,
